The majority of the bottles are tradeable and you can request these bottles to be shipped to an address within the EU (with the exception of Cyprus and Malta). There are restrictions when shipping bottles outside the EU. These bottles are stored in THE SWEX safe.
Whisky in cask
In addition to trading in bottles, you can also trade in bottles that are not bottled yet. This means literally trading in whisky still maturing in a cask that has not yet been bottled. You take an option on the future value of the bottles from the cask on date of bottling.
Bottles with this icon cannot be traded on THE SWEX.
Over-the-counter (OTC) bottles are bottles that you have purchased outside THE SWEX and added to your portfolio.
