Investing in whisky
High return rate
Whisky is one the most profitable investment class of alternative assets. For many years, rates of return on investment in whisky have been very high, beating other alternative investments, such as rare coins, wine, art and watches. One of the indexes tracking the price of whisky at auctions - Knight Frank Rare Whisky 100 Index gained almost 40% during last year, and in a 10-year perspective the value increase was as much as 582%. Another indicator, the Rare Whisky Icon 100 Index, examining the price of one hundred most desirable whisky bottles, achieved an increase of over 495% over the last decade.

Limited whisky supply

All available data indicate that the supply of Scotch whisky is not keeping pace with growing demand. Despite the growing number of distilleries and the plans of many distilleries to increase production, it seems that this trend is not endangered in the long run.


In 2019, Scotch whisky export reached record levels both in volume and value. The Scotch Whisky Association, citing the HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) data, announced that Scotch whisky export reached £4.91 billion last year, which was an increase of 4.4% over 2018. Meanwhile, the equivalent of 1.31 billion 0.7 cl bottles of whisky was sent abroad, which means a 2.4% increase compared to the previous year. Investors from Asia have an undoubted impact on the market - according to Scotch Whisky Association, sales to Taiwan, India and Japan in the first half of last year increased by 22, 19.7 and 16.1% respectively. At the same time, single malt whisky deliveries to these countries account for almost 30% of total export.

Safety of invested funds
The uniqueness of investments in whisky casks is that they are independent of financial markets, so even the possibility of an economic crisis does not affect them. Steadily growing demand, both for blended and single malts, combined with a limited supply of casks has a great impact on market stability.
Whisky casks purchased by our investors are a qualitative component of blends, still constituting the majority of production in Scotland. Despite the growing number of distilleries in Scotland, the demand for Scotch whisky, especially in Asian countries, is far greater than production capacity.
Purchase of physical assets
