Why collect Whisky and Wine?
The post-pandemic investment landscape is still filled with uncertainty, with many of the traditional investment routes still deemed too unpredictable.
What to look out for
Whilst choosing a nice bottle of wine to share over dinner is one thing, choosing a bottle to invest in requires a different set of selection criteria. Most significantly, bottles bought for investment purposes are rarely, if ever, opened or consumed, so the value should, in theory, only ever go up. However, as the 2008 crash showed, investing is not as simple as that, and markets can turn. When choosing a Wine or Whisky for investment, the best advice would be to firstly, do your research on the market, then, if you feel confident in taking the plunge, go for rarity and quality. The most collectable brands are currently Scottish and Japanese, however serious collectors also look to American, Irish, and other whiskies.
