On THE SWEX, you have the option to ship bottles. However, some bottles are so special that we want to preserve them. Whisky gems like the Springbank 1919 and Black Bowmore make this platform unique, which benefits you as a trader/investor. That means some bottles are secured. The buyer agrees that they neither factually or legally can or will dispose the bottle(s) of whisky (including but not limited to: selling, transferring, encumbering, moving, and consuming), subject to the authority to trade the bottle(s) of whisky via THE SWEX.

Which bottles are secured?

Bottles that are: 

  • more than 30 years old, and/or
  • were distilled before 1980.

If you have secured bottles in your portfolio, you will get a 15% discount on the management fee for your entire portfolio.

Is it possible to have the secured designation removed?

No, it is not.
