We will accept payment in € and $ only. We will only accept €-based cheques. We will accept both € and $ for electronic transfers. The price of the cask will remain constant at €7,500 unless we offer a special discount. KDC is an Irish company that conducts business in €. Our financial projections are based on € projections, so we cannot take on foreign currency risk. We are offering an early bird discount price of €7,100 if you provide us with a completed application and payment by May 1st, 2021. Based on a €/$ FX rate of 1.21, as of 3/3/21, the €7,100 price translates to a discounted price of $8,591. Both discounted prices will remain in effect until May 1st, 2021. After May 1st, 2021, the cask price will revert to €7,500 and the cask $ price will be determined every other Monday morning in perpetuity and will stay in effect for the following 2 weeks after each $ cask price change. The $ cask price will be determined by the prevailing €/$ FX rate on that Monday. Thus, every other Monday there could be a different $ price for the casks, while the €7,500 price will remain constant.
The rates are set by the Irish Revenue Commissioners based on the percentage of pure alcohol. If investors choose to export the product (your whiskey must ship, in either drum or bottle form, under bond to your country where it should be received into bond), no Excise Duty will be paid in Ireland. Local duties may apply at your destination, we recommend independent advice.
The cost is €2.50 approx. per 700ml bottle.
