“Whereas whisky was once a niche investment, it is now holding its own as a serious contender in the alternative investment space. Its appeal lies in the fact it is a tangible soft commodity which has demonstrated both stability and strong long-term performance. Its global nature means that, as an asset class, whisky, particularly single malt scotch, can weather turbulence in mainstream markets.”


“Whisky is not only highly prized for its depth of flavour, it is a bona fide collector’s item – and a premium asset capable of providing the sort of return for your money that banks and building societies cannot offer… Buying into a cask of fine whisky can provide impressive annual returns, on average 12 per cent. Holding on to investments in excess of five years often increases profitability”

“With such an eye-catching track record, Scotch whisky is becoming a serious consideration for investors. UKV International, a Swiss based Fine Wine and Whisky company, agree values have seen a dramatic increase, but suggest more conservative uplifts of 10-20% pa to collectors.”

Investors Chronicle
“Alex James, Senior Consultant of UKV International AG announced that, in line with the company’s dedication to clientele and the whisky industry, UKV is collaborating with Elite Wine and Whisky and its storage division, Elite Whisky Storage, to establish a bonded facility in Edinburgh within the coming year.”
