UKV International AG: Specialists in Rare Wine, Champagne & Whisky Collection
Collecting wine and whisky is not just a way to build a portfolio of tasty, tangible assets, it’s also a way to own a piece of history. With over a decade of industry experience and an unrivalled passion for curation, we are the perfect partners to guide you on your journey into the world of wine and whisky.
“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”
“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.”
Why Collect Wine and Whisky?
We’re currently witnessing unprecedented demand for rare wine and whisky. This growing popularity is mainly driven by emerging markets, where newfound wealth has opened up the world of luxury consumables to a wider audience. This has contributed to the overall stability and growth of the whisky market.
Not only does diversifying in wine and whisky allow you to hedge your risk, but it also has the added benefit of being entirely exempt from Capital Gains Tax.
