    The whisky sector continues to be well positioned to take advantage of Asset Based Lending and has shown to be robust and resilient throughout the pandemic.

    At Sanderson Weatherall, we have a deep understanding of the whisky sector and have valued over £1bn of whisky inventory in recent years; advising distilleries, lenders, advisors and investors to help them achieve their goals in Scotland, Ireland, England and Australia.
