We are First time investors in Whisky and Ben from VCL Vintners has made it a very easy and enjoyable experience. Absolutely no pressure just lots of information when needed and requested he has always been available and nothing is too much trouble. Only time will tell how successful our investment will be but I wouldn’t hesitate to use VCL again when funds become available

VCL made my experience of investing in cask whisky seamless. Ben was both knowledgable and professional and promptly answered any queries I had, which put my mind a rest. I highly recommend VCL Vintners if you are looking to start your journey of nvesting in cask whisky, or expanding an existing portfolio.

Nearly all of my encounters were with Ben Lancaster and he was superb from start to finish, from our first call where he explained the procedure and how buying whiskey works to giving me a full understanding of the industry without being pushy, to our follow up calls where he made sure I understood every aspect. The suggestions he sent over were speedy and had so much information on each whiskey he recommended and the reasoning behind each brand, the price point I asked him to come in at was just under budget which was perfect because I didn't feel he was pushing to try and get me to invest more than I was comfortable with. Overall the service provided by VCL and Ben was great, everything from the information provided to the speed in which everything was sent through was excellent. I would defiantly recommend this service to anyone interested!

We were looking for an interesting and 'different ' investment opportunity. Early days in the venture but I have high hopes for a mutually beneficial relationship. Ben has impressed as a knowledgeable broker and he and Lauren have proven to be very efficient and attentive.

Ben was very friendly and guided me through the process which was very new to me. He understood my personal risk averseness and did not push for me to invest more than. I have recently had a meeting with my financial adviser and told him I was more comfortable with this new investment than the market based ones. This is entirely down to the time I have spent talking to and gaining an understand to and from Ben.

I found VCL to be extremely professional. Ben guided me through the process and was very knowledgeable of the industry. I didn't feel pressurised into making a quick decision. He answered all my questions which allowed me to feel confident of the investment. I certainly would recommend Ben and VCL to others looking for something different.
