30 Of The Most Expensive Whiskies In The World

Investing in alcohol is by no means a new trend. People have been investing in wine for many hundreds of years but let’s have a look at the most expensive bottles of whisky in the world.

Investing in whisky

The price of whisky (or whiskey depending which part of the world you are in) has skyrocketed in recent years as more consumers have become interested in drinking it. This has led to some whisky aficionados stockpiling valuable whisky to enjoy it sometime in the future.

While most whisky aficionados collect whisky for the love of it, there are an increasing number of people who are investing in collecting whisky to make a profit.

In addition to stockpiling high-value bottles of whisky , investors are purchasing dozens of barrels of whisky which are aged, then sold for a profit. In some cases, they are also directly investing in their favorite distilleries.
