Buying OLA / RLA

We sell whisky on an OLA (original litres of alcohol) basis or an RLA (regauged litres of alcohol) basis.

Buying on an RLA basis takes into account the Angel’s Share Loss and tends to be the way the trade buys and sells whiskies over 15 years old.

Buying on an OLA basis can be cheaper, but the buyer takes the risk that the Angel's Share Loss is roughly as expected.
