Having considered whiskey investment for a while we got in touch with VCL Vintners and had several conversations with Shane who I can recommend very highly as an expert in this field. Shane gave us extensive information and was always accommodating when we had questions or wanted to discuss a suitable portfolio. Shane is very personable, trustworthy and professional he provided us with everything we needed to make an informed decision and we are really pleased to be working with VCL Vintners who we trust implicitly to manage our investment.

George was extremely helpful in answering all my queries in a friendly and efficient manner. At the end of our conversation I was happy to proceed in buying my first 6 casks.

Ben is an amazing salesman. I had no intention of investing with VCL - I was just looking for ideas/information. My ignorance was tolerated with good humour, all questions were answered and I have high hopes for the outcome

Benjamin talked me through the process making me feel very comfortable without being at all pushy. I received my certificates and tasters as expected and can track my investment in the online portal. Recommended

The so called money laundering review was unnecessary. Vintners exposed private information to individuals which inturn criminal group new we possessed investments in Whiskey here in Albania . I had explained to Vintners that the Australian government checks all foreign exchange transaction before any transfer are executed.
Vintners needs to listen to clients when it was explained that Australia has its own money laundering checking process.
I also expressed to Vintners that it appeared that Vintners is using the money laundering process as a method of exposing the Vintners name to a wider audience.

I am a complete novice to investments full stop and had no previous interest in whiskey either.
I chose to explore investing in whiskey following an internet search for general information on ‘new to investing’

Shane at VCL Vintners has supported me through the whole process with patience and kindness, answering all my ‘very’ many questions with clarity and on a level that I understood, no question was too much trouble. I am so grateful to him because now I have a fantastic investment for my future and a full understanding of what the investment entails. I also have a lot better understanding of how whiskey is produced and new interest to boot.

Shane is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject and I would not hesitate to refer others to him or for that matter, invest further myself in the future if circumstances allow.

I also received a lovely welcome pack through the post today with three whiskey samples and all of my documents and certificates very professionally boxed.
Thank you

Cornelius James Teteh Meldrick Mihedji 'CJ' along with this extremely personable manor, was professional and reassuring throughout the investment process. Not being over pushy or going for the hard sell helped gain confidence that this was a good investment.

Very prompt response to my initial enquiry. Stuart was extremely professional and gave a real personal touch. Didn't try and get me to overspend on the first order

As somebody who had some spare cash to invest but little interest in or knowledge of stocks and shares, I had read somewhere about the possibility of investing in cask whiskey and found my interewst piqued enough to make further inquiries about the possibility.

George followed up a couple of days later with a phone call and talked me through the process before sending a follow-up email to peruse that was so thorough it left me with few if any questions when he called back to see if I had any a few days later.

Always scourteous, friendly and patient (he had no complaints when I had to reschedule one telephone appointment at quite short notice), at no point did George attempt anything resembling a "hard sell" and I am pleased to have invested my money with VCL.

Of course only time will tell whether it was a shrewd financial move or not but while I don't know much about stocks and shares, I know plenty about people and drink, and therefore suspect I'll be happy enough with my return a few years down the line.

Came into this completely fresh, would not have bothered all too much if it was not for one Shane Thurston who was extremely patient with my questions, receptive and knowledgeable in his responses. He maintained a great level of professionalism throughout, and was transparent in his explanations. As with any investment, more than certainly does come with its attached risks, but definitely is a very interesting asset class in such curious times, and recommend it, especially if it's via VCL, and even more so through Shane !
