5 Reasons Savvy Investors are Looking Closely at Whiskey Investments

There is a deep concern for the instability of the global financial markets in 2019. Even traditional safe harbours like gold bullion are sititng at the same price it was 9 years ago(2010)! Pensions are going backwards, cash in the bank looses 3% a year to inflation and most markets feel like another bubble on the brink of bursting.

Here’s 5 reasons why whiskey is seen to be a safe yet high yield investment.

1. Global Demand and Growth

Unlike many other speculative investments, the underlying global demand for whiskey has grown on average in the double digits every year for the past 20 years.

Unlike many other speculative investments, the underlying global demand for Irish whiskey has grown on average in the double digits every year for the past 21 years.

Many experts such as John Teeling who owns the largest Irish whiskey distillery…are predicting a severe shortage in mature whiskey stock in the coming years as global demand outstrips supply.

A case in point being Conor McGregor’s launch of his whiskey brand Proper 12; six months’ supply of his mature whiskey was sold out within 10 days.

Experts are forecasting whiskey’s strong demand growth will continue past 2030 with continued strong growth in mature markets such as the US and Japan.

Demand is further enhanced by the emergence of Asia, Eastern Europe and Russia as strong buyers of the brown liquid.  This is a genuine concern for Irish Whiskey producers. They simply cannot keep up with demand.

2. Whiskey is outperforming the Stock Market…by a lot. 

Studies have shown whiskey stored in casks have consistently outperformed the stock market.

Take for instance, a £2400 investment in the London FTSE All-Share Index would have provided a return of £11,480 in 30 years’…assuming an annual growth rate of 6%.

Comparatively, a £2400 investment in a single cask of Irish whiskey would be worth £577,500 in retail value over the same period of time.

It doesn’t take a genius to see why a lot of smart money is starting to flow into whiskey investing.

3. Value of Whiskey Increases the Longer you Keep it.

Unlike other commodities such as gold…the value of whiskey inevitably increases the longer you keep it in a cask. The more mature it is the more valuable it is. Which is why it’s such a great hedge against everything else that’s tied to the ups and downs of the economy.

Rare bottles of whiskey also increase in value over time, but are more geared towards speculators and collectors. Casks of whiskey are more geared towards investors looking for solid growth with the downside protected.

In fact, each year whiskey sits in a cask, it’s value increases…and there’s no shortage of ready buyers ranging from bottlers, whiskey brands and a plethora of private collectors who simply can’t get their hands on a cask of mature Irish Whiskey. It’s rarer than hens teeth.

A popular option is to sell at auction. both online and offline. We spoke to www.whisky.auction and also www.whiskyauctioneer.com and both auction houses are very interested in listing casks of Irish Whiskey on their site.

Conversely, commodities such as gold and silver may or may not increase over time.

Unlike other commodities such as gold…the value of whiskey is virtually guaranteed to increase the longer you keep it in a cask.

Rare bottles of whiskey do also increase in value over time.

In fact, there’s different generally accepted market prices for whiskey each year it is in a cask…and there’s no shortage of ready buyers ranging from bottlers, whiskey brands to private collectors at any time.

There’s even auction markets where you can sell your casks or bottles at…both online and offline.

4. Irish whiskey is expected to outperform

While Scottish whisky has been strong in the market for some years…Irish Whiskey is still playing catch-up.

Once the world’s leading producer of whiskey, the Irish are only producing a fraction of the whiskey that bigger producers such as Scotland and the US are producing. But that’s been changing dramatically for the last two decades as the Irish have been steadily gaining back some market share.

Having only 2% of the market in 1990 to now having 11%, and by 2030, the Irish will conservatively have at least 28% of the Scottish market. The demand is soaring and supply is doing what it can to try and keep up.

Irish Distillers just announced another €150 million to further increase production. According to a recent statement from the company “Since 2012, we have invested over €400 million to double our production and bottling capacity to meet global demand.”

While Scottish and Japanese whiskey has been strong in the market for some years…Irish Whiskey is still playing catch-up.

Once the world’s leading producer of whiskey, the Irish are only producing a fraction of the whiskey that bigger producers such as Scotland, US and Japan are producing.

However, supply for Irish Whiskey cannot fulfil the incredible demand for mature stocks of Irish Whiskey…despite the increasing number of distilleries coming on board.  

5. Easy and low-cost management

One of the great things about investing in whiskey is that it requires almost no management effort from the investor.

And you can visit your casks at any time, take pictures to show you’re the proud owner and even taste it.
