Princetown Distillery

Fine whisky is increasingly being recognised as a high-return investment and an opportunity has arisen to invest in the first single malt produced by a ground-breaking new distillery.

Princetown Distillery is being built on land owned by the Duchy of Cornwall in the heart of Dartmoor National Park and is the largest commercial scale distillery project in England.

At 420 metres above sea level it will be the highest distillery in the UK, with conditions perfect to produce whisky of the same quality as finest Japanese and Scotch whiskies.

Working in partnership with Spirit Traders, Princetown Distillery is making available the very first 600 casks of single malt whisky to roll off the production line - a truly rare and unique investment opportunity.

The casks are priced from £4,900 to £75,000 and will undoubtedly become collector's items. The cost includes 10 years of storage, insurance and a fully managed service. Rare whisky of this nature has shown an increase of 40% p.a. or 582% over the last 10 years (according to Knight Frank), so returns on these limited-edition casks from a premier distillery promise to be exceptional. Investors will receive a certificate of ownership and be able to visit the distillery and see their cask, which will be stored on site. They will also be invited to its official opening ceremony in 2020.
