Over the years, Scotch Single Malt Whisky has developed into an interesting product for investing in.
Our market analysts who are monitoring the Single Malt Whisky investment market, are seeing a vast international increase of all collectable single malt Scotch. As always, the most desirables bottles with the right provenance are the finest luxury to own, as they increase rapidly in value.
The result of the less desirable whiskies, are diminishing in value. The old saying comes in to mind ; ‘the rich get richer and poor get poorer’. The reason for all this is, there are allot of new investors looking for a safe haven. And the new investors are not too familiar within this market. They will stick in the beginning to the most famous distilleries and performing whiskies.
So we’re seeing a huge rise in value on The Macallen, Bruichladdich, Port Ellen, Bowmore, Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Brora.
Ever since the 90’s, there has been an increasing demand for Single Malt Whisky, especially in Asia and large parts of Europe. India, Russia and China are this moment’s coming markets. As a result, the call for (exclusive vintage & rare) Single Malt Whiskies is exploding.
This class of investments is highly attractive to the new and growing number of the very rich in emerging nations just as China, India and Russia and this has fuelled the market in recent years in the same way as they have done with gold and other valuable commodities.
Recent developments show that a number of distilleries have failed to capitalize on this, causing stock shortage. Due to the long ageing process (10 years or longer) it is getting more and more difficult to meet the ever increasing call. On top of this, we expect whisky from closed distilleries to disappear from the market in the next 5 to 10 years.
