MEETING ROD SAMPSON - THE FINANCIERS PERSPECTIVE

We are committed to bringing the most sought after, premium-grade, cask whisky to our discerning clients. With over a decade of industry experience we ensure our clients are only exposed to world famous Scottish distilleries that have a proven track record of excellence.

Our clients typically purchase a ‘young’ cask sourced from a renowned distillery, then simply wait for the cask to age and mature gracefully. The longer the wait the greater the increase in quality and desirability of the cask. Cask whisky is considered a great alternative investment choice.

WHAT OUR CLIENT'S SAY

Scotch whisky in China: ‘the spike in demand should not be ignored’

Scotch whisky exports to China have risen by 165% in the last five years, providing the “perfect storm” for further growth of both bottles and casks.

Data from the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) underscores this trend, revealing a remarkable 165% surge in the value of Scotch whisky exports to China over the preceding five years. The figures illustrate an escalation from £88,794,800 in 2019 to an impressive £235,290,854 in 2023.

The pivot towards whisky within China predominantly gravitates towards premium offerings. Although there has been an 80% increment in volume exports to China within the same timeframe, it is the escalation in value that stands as the more prominent indicator.

This uptick in interest is attributed to affluent younger Chinese consumers. This demographic, bolstered by enhanced financial acumen stemming from advancements in financial instruments, technology, and access to luxury goods, is significantly impacting the high-end whisky market.

With a population of over 400 million Millennials in China increasingly aligning their tastes with whisky, the influence extends beyond luxury bottles to the realm of cask investment.
