How your whisky investment is safeguarded:
You might not have heard of barrel investing but it is proven to be a
Investing in barrels of whisky might be a new concept for you, but it’s actually a centuries old Scottish tradition.
We want you to take your investment seriously and have safeguards in place to reduce your risk.
This is what we have in place to reduce your risk:
Registered on the PPSR
Monitored by the ATO
A tangible asset
Guaranteed buy back
Is this too good to be true?
You might be wondering how we can afford to pay you a 9.25% p.a. return.
When you invest in a barrel, the unmatured whisky is valued at $42-45 per litre.
Once the whisky has matured and we buy the barrel back, we pay you approximately $65 per litre.
We have buyers for bottled product at up to double the buy back per litre price. This makes our business financially viable and allows us to offer you fixed returns.
Hear from our barrel owners:
My wife and I attended the Distillery on the weekend to see where the magic happens. Brad the barrel master met up on site and did a tour of the Distillery. We heard the plans first hand for the future and as investors in the product it was great to see how it comes together. My wife did a tasting of a couple of the whiskies on hand from the barrels and certainly could appreciate the difference between barrels and thoughts on where to for these barrels for further finishing before bottling. We are very content with our investment to date and where Stn Lane Coburns is heading.
My wife and I spent a couple of hours with Mark and Brad at the distillery, on a misty, cold and wet morning. Mark answered all our questions without a hint of holding anything back and even provided information on things I hadn’t thought of. I would recommend a visit to the Distillery to listen to Mark’s vision for the future of “Coburns”. If you were to leave with any uncertainty of Mark’s commitment to the long term future of Coburns, and it’s commercial success, I would be amazed.
Great to see the Coburn dream and aspirations coming alive with such a dedicated team. Wonderful to meet Mark and Brad in person. It’s sure going to have some character! Congratulations on a full trophy room for your gold standard product!
Down the lane and over the tracks to a wooden building where the journey of grain and water begins. The whisky is of the highest quality, taste and aroma. The end result is a testament to Mark and his team! Passion in a barrel to be enjoyed now and forever.

Why a guaranteed buy back gives you peace of mind
With most other whisky investment opportunities, the responsibility falls on the investor to sell the barrel at maturity.
This places all the risk on the investor, to locate a buyer and negotiate the best possible price. Inexperienced investors find themselves selling an ultra-premium product to a professional buyer with decades of experience.
How can this possibly work out well for the investor?
At Coburns, we buy the barrel back at purchase price plus return once we determine the whisky has matured.
This gives you a guaranteed exit within 3 to 5 years and removes the commercial negotiations from the investors responsibility.
