Firstly......putting your money into anything where the expectation is a gain in value carries inherent risks. As with shares, art, wine and indeed any collectable, the price of whisky can go down as well as up. If you are interested in whisky as an alternative investment the aim is clearly to minimise those risks by understanding the investment.


This page looks at the potential for full, sealed bottles of rare whisky to increase in value (investing in whisky casks from distilleries or brokers is not something we get involved with).

If the worst happens and the bottom falls out of the market at least you'll have something wonderful to drink!


Investment principles

(1) The first, and indeed main thing you need is a passion for whisky. If the market ever crashes at least you'll still have a great drink as consolation!

(2) The second is patience! Whilst short term gains are possible, whisky should be viewed as a long term investment. 10 to 20 years is usual.

(3) NEVER invest what you cannot afford to lose (read drink!).

(4) Understand the market inside and out. You wouldn't invest in a company you hadn't researched. The same principles apply with whisky.
