Bulk trade bid
Bulk trade bid notification
WhiskyInvestDirect is pleased to announce that a whisky industry buyer has made a bulk trade bid for the following stock line:
- Caol Ila, Refill hogshead 2018 Q1
- Initial bid: £6.15 per LPA
- Current bid: £7.50 per LPA – a 28.4% premium over the last price (£5.84) at which this line sold on the WhiskyInvestDirect platform
This bulk trade bid was made public on Monday 13 September at 12.00pm (UTC).
The buyer is pitching to buy 60,001 LPA (the full stockline). However, this offer is conditional on reaching acceptances to sell for a minimum of 10,000 LPA by 12.00pm (UTC) Friday 24 September 2021.
The closing date for this bid has been extended due to a counter-bid being made. The bid will now close on Thursday 30 September 2021.
This bid is for the full stockline. Stock owners are not obligated to accept this bid but by not doing so risk retaining ownership in a low liquidity stock line with reduced attractiveness to potential future industry bidders.
Trading in this stock line is suspended for the period of the bulk trade bid.
If you hold any of this stock line, you will have received an email to the email address registered on your WhiskyInvestDirect account advising you how to proceed.

What is a bulk trade bid?
A bulk trade bid is the ordinary way for stock to exit the platform and for stock owners to realise their investment. It is the easiest way for an industry buyer to pick up a significant quantity of the whisky that they require for blending or bottling.
Stock owners are not obligated to accept this bid but by not doing so risk retaining ownership in a low liquidity stock line with reduced attractiveness to potential future industry bidders.
