Why collect Rare Whisky?
Over the last decade; collecting rare whisky has become increasingly popular, but why is there such a deluge of shrewd collectors taking advantage of the market?
Whisky is outperforming assets across the board. The published data from Knight Frank highlights the very best performing whiskies have returned over 550% across the last decade.
When collecting casked whisky, the “angels” will begin to take their share. 0.2-0.5% of alcohol is lost to evaporation each year, therefore casked whisky is deemed by HMRC as a ‘wasting asset’ meaning all profits are exempt from capital gains tax and one of the greatest benefits when you collect casked whisky.
The absence of capital gains tax when you purchase Casked Whisky makes it more financially viable compared to the returns achieved from bottled whisky.

Although there are no guarantees, you should expect to profit by selling maturing whisky into normal blending demand.
Fact – the top 100 Superior grade whisky brands are up over 500% across the last decade.
