How Does a Bonded Warehouse Work?
How Does a Bonded Warehouse Work?
Updated over a week ago

In order to own/control a bonded warehouse the company must have the correct certification, which is called the Warehousekeepers and Owners of Warehoused Goods Regulations (WOWGR) which is governed by the HMRC in the United Kingdom. You can check to see if a warehouse has been verified by HMRC here.

This industry regulation gives you as the owner peace of mind that the cask you own is being looked after securely, and that the cask number you have is registered with the bonded warehouse. These are regularly inspected by HMRC so you can have confidence that if your cask number isn’t there on inspection, action will be taken. At Whisky Partners, you can rest assured that as well as our partner distilleries being fully regulated, we also have full WOWGR certification.
