Dubbed liquid gold
by the Financial Times, Irish whiskey is one of the world’s most profitable assets, providing average returns of 10%-12% per annum over the past ten years
Moreover, the ownership of Irish whiskey casks provides a unique experience. It’s also an opportunity to cherish one of the world’s finest spirits and makes an exceptional gift for both connoisseurs and casual enthusiasts.
Working with award-winning distilleries in Ireland, our long-standing relationships enable us to bring you high-quality whiskey. This ensures both an attractive and rewarding addition to a balanced portfolio for discerning investors looking for assets that defy traditional markets*.
But what makes Irish whiskey so special?
The market for Irish whiskey continues to grow
Whiskey is a consistent leader in the Knight Frank Luxury Index
. In the last 12-months, it’s grown by 40% and by 582% within a decade, meaning it’s outperformed coins, art and diamonds*.
Aged Irish whiskey in particular is a highly sought-after, valuable and most importantly, tradable commodity where demand continues to outstrip supply. In 2019, sales of Irish whiskey topped $1 billion in the United States alone while global sales have grown by more than 80 million bottles every year over the last ten years.
A physical and liquid asset that provides tax-free growth
Whiskey is not tied to the stock market and has a much smaller risk profile compared to more traditional asset classes. It’s also an investment that needs minimal medium to long term management, enabling you to quietly grow the value* of your portfolio with confidence.
What’s more, as a wasting asset with a shelf life of less than 50 years, whiskey casks are not subject to Capital Gains Tax. Whiskey is also a tangible asset that can be easily realised if necessary as your casks can be sold as Irish whiskey after three years of maturation.
