A Renewing Bourbon Portfolio

Cardinal WEIT™

The Cardinal WEIT™ is purchasing 1700+ barrels of new high-rye bourbon. These barrels will be held for 2, 3, and 4-year increments, and sold in a recurring income model. The Cardinal fund is designed to be liquidated in 10 years but has a renewal option that allows the fund to run continuously. The diversification of the multi-year bourbons facilitates our customer's offering premium and ultra-premium editions of the bourbon, thereby supporting a high demand brand.

Overview of Portfolio

A scheduled, 10-year investment secured by 1700+ barrels of premium, straight bourbon

  • Assurance: Subscribers of The Cardinal WEIT can invest with confidence knowing their contribution is backed by a real asset that increases in value each year.

  • Attractive returns: On a risk-adjusted basis, Bourbon offers exceptional return potential when compared to traditional investment asset classes.

Market Backdrop

Why should I consider investing?

  • An alternative investment, secured by a real asset that offers greater upside potential than traditional safe-money investment alternatives. Additionally, due to natural appreciation in value the longer it’s held in the barrelhouse, bourbon offers investors the ability to outpace inflation.

  • Not directly correlated with broader equity markets or macroeconomic activity, so this investment can be the shelter in the volatile equity market storm and improve portfolio diversification.

  • The Global Bourbon market is growing rapidly. What's Fueling the Billion-Dollar Bourbon Boom? | VinePair
