** Annual returns of 10-15% are not atypical over long periods of time. Some rare bottles may do considerably better. For instance, wines from Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, arguably the world’s most prestigious winery, regularly show growth of 150-200% over a five-year period. Fine Wine assets have appreciated by 147% over the past decade. Liv-ex 1000, Knight Frank Luxury Index, OenoGroup
*** During the recession of 2007/8 the S&P 500 plunged 38.5%. In contrast, the Liv-ex 1000, the market-leading index for fine wine, dipped by just 0.6%. The same pattern emerged in March 2020 when the S&P 500 fell by 25% while the Liv-ex 1000 slipped by barely 4%. Liv-ex 1000. This is why NOW is the time to invest in wine and whisky/
Past performance does not guarantee future results.
Markets have never been more challenging.
- Deciding where to focus and why is overwhelming.
- Hedging against inflation and recession is essential but gold, crypto and other alternative assets haven’t performed as expected.
- It’s harder than ever to keep your money safe.
- Small minimum investment, no maximum.
- Absolute transparency throughout the process
- Globally recognised alternative asset
A simple, elegant solution.
Investment-grade wine is inherently valuable because it is produced in limited quantities by world-recognised producers. Bottles of each vintage get consumed or depleted so they are less available in the open market which means that these wines will fetch higher and higher prices as they become increasingly scarce.

Whisky investment has garnered buzz for the high returns, exemption from capital gains and, of course, the chance to indulge in rare, sumptuous spirits.
Buyers looking to diversify their portfolio by acquiring whisky can do so in either cask or bottle format. Each offers unique advantages to buyers including significant profit margins as they age.
- Rare Whisky has been the top performer (+1,089% since Dec’08), followed by Burgundy 150 (+787% since Dec’03) and Champagne 50 (+611% since Dec’03)*
Why wine appreciates over time.
Fine wines are made in very limited quantities, meaning that rarity can play a significant role in price performance. For example, a bottle of Domaine Armand Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques 2010 which increased by a remarkable 194.8% in just 11 months from January to November 2018.
The quality of a particular vintage can heavily influence the price of wine. Typically, wines that benefit from longer ageing will appreciate as the prime drinking window approaches.
The emerging middle and upper classes in countries like China and India have helped increase demand globally. Worldwide demand is growing by triple digits according to Forbes, Nomisma Wine Monitor and other sources.

Benefits of wine & whisky investing
Price appreciation is not the only benefit to wine investing.
Moving a portion of your wealth into fine wine can be a smart move for other reasons.
Worldwide demand is growing
Global demand is growing by double digits in many parts of the world where fine wines are just being discovered and new, increasingly affluent consumers are keen to buy them.
Fine wine prices are a function of supply and demand. Supply is monitored by the law as the yields of every appellation are strictly defined. Every time a bottle of fine wine is consumed, the price of the highly sought-after remaining bottles increases.
Wine is considered a wasting asset which means that it can be exempt from capital gains. Further, investors who keep their wine in Licensed Bonded Warehouses can avoid paying VAT and duty. Bordeaux investors are advised to seek independent advice for more information.
Research suggests that fine wine has a 0.03% correlation to the stock market. The wine market has survived every recession since 1929 and, in fact, has grown as an industry constantly over time.
