I have been looking a developing this for a little while now and as the time gets closer to having my liquor license issued I thought that I should start to see what sort of response I get to my plan...
"The Vintage Cask Syndicate"
- A group of individuals involved in the selection/purchase and bottling of single casks of whiskies(although any type of liquor can be purchased)
Each member will have an allocation as return on their investment plus a percentage on profits from the sale of bottlings left over after syndicate members' allocation.
This could quite possibly appeal to a number of people out there for a few reasons...
- To 'invest' in the syndicate would be similar in costs to purchasing a single cask of whisk(e)y, however investing in the syndicate will provide a partial ownership of a few casks, without limiting an individual to just one single cask of liquor.
- The ability to legally 'sell'(Bar Items Plus will handle sales of remaining bottles) the remaining bottles after syndicate members allocation has been made.
If(or more when!!) I get this up and running, I would have to look at if there was a time frame on the syndicate, or basicly starting a new syndicate as demand increases for people wanting to invest.
Ideally I would want a group of no more than 10 people, otherwise then there are too many people to decide on what cask to purchase, i.e. too many opinions.
I will put the word out now…if anyone is indeed wanting in on the first syndicate please contact myself ASAP. I would think that this would gather a fair amount of interest…??!!
Please only contact myself if you are genuinely interested in joining the syndicate more or less tomorrow…well at least in the next couple of weeks anyway.
