Global growth in spirits continues through economic uncertainty, making whisky investment the smart choice.
BOOMING MARKET FOR SCOTCH WHISKY
Scotch whisky is unrivalled across worldwide whiskies in terms of reputation, sales volume, collectability, and history. When Cognac led the way in key Asian markets, Scotch whisky entered and took over the market. In the US, post-prohibition, Scotch rose and became America’s most loved spirit. Today, in every corner of the globe, Scotch is known and enjoyed. The world of Scotch whisky investment is only just opening up.
Scotch whisky is responsible for over 21% of all food and beverage exports from the UK. A large part of this comes from whisky investment, as this sector creates thousands of jobs in the UK and attracts record numbers of tourists to Scotland’s many distilleries every year. With an annual gross value added (GVA) of 5 billion to the UK economy, Scotch is truly Britain’s liquid gold.
Knight Frank Luxury Investment Index
Knight Frank’s luxury investment index is a globally renowned report focusing on global wealth and the performance of various collectable assets such as art, classic cars, wine, and whisky. Each year the figures have highlighted incredible growth for the Scotch whisky alternative asset class and surprisingly has continued to outperform cars, coins, watches, handbags, and most other luxury collectables and investments. As a separate entity with no affiliation to the whisky industry, the Knight Frank report provides a non-biased look into the continuous success of whisky.
Rare Whisky – Rare Malts Index
The Rare Malts Index showcases an increasingly rare collection by Diageo: the world’s largest drinks company and owner of some of Scotland’s most famed distilleries. The chart shows the growth of auction trading in the UK since 2008, with a focus on the rare nalts selection and variants. By focusing on one market and a particular selection, the graph showcases how collectability and buyer’s behaviours have progressed over the past decade. Collecting whisky is greater than ever.

The steps are simple: after signing the agreement and completing the payment, you will receive your Cask Certificate of Title and Transfer of Ownership. These documents prove that you are the new owner of the cask.

Allow your cask to mature in our government-bonded warehouse in Scotland, overseen by professionals. As the new proud owner of your first Scotch whisky cask, you will have all the information you need at your disposal. Over time, your whisky will continue to mature and grow more complex in its cask, unlike bottles that stop ageing.
