Meet the Team 

Jonathan hook

MacInnes Whisky was founded by Jonathan Hook, philanthropist, Qualified Accountant (ex PwC) and Financial Adviser with worldwide experience in the finance industry for the last 35 years.

MacInnes only sell premium single malt Scotch Whisky casks for medium and long term investment purposes. Jon was looking around for places to invest in 2020 after being disillusioned by the poor interest rates being offered by the banks when he came across whisky cask investments. He immediately did his homework and discovered that for the premium Scotch casks you could not only enjoy great returns , well above inflation, but tax free ones too due to whisky being considered a ‘wasting asset’ by HMRC due to the minimal evaporation that occurs each year in the cask called the ‘Angel’s Share’.

With over 4,500 clients and having sat on various charity committees such as Lords Taverners and been a trustee listed for not for profit organisations on The Charity Commission it is fair to say that Jon has a social conscience and has a ‘pay it forward’ culture towards his community.

If you want to make whisky part of your balanced portfolio you can rely on MacInnes to deliver you a fair deal without the hard sell. All of our core staff are Edinburgh Whisky Academy qualified so you have peace of mind that we understand our malts! We have already engaged with thousands of existing clients and this has resulted in many happy buyers.

We look forward to taking you on your whisky cask investment journey!
