Invest in a golden future
For centuries, single malt Scotch whisky has stood for class, quality and craftmanship. For the past couple of years, we can add a new feature: a serious investment opportunity.
Mastering the value
Three reasons to invest in single malt
Whisky can increase your assets
Thanks to an increasing demand, constant scarcity and a loose relationship with other financial markets, single malt Scotch whisky’s price value fluctuates less than those of listed shares. You are then exposed to fewer risks and you receive relatively stable returns every year (historical value development is 6.6 per annum)
Whisky can enhance your portfolio
Smart investors make sure to expand their portfolio to reduce their investment risks. Scottish single malt constitutes a fully-fledge, innovative addition to a diversified portfolio. Investing in whisky combines the stability of real estate and the flexibility of equities, benefiting from the best of both worlds.
Whisky can enrich your experience
Single malt Scotch whisky is more than a drink. It stands for heritage, the taste of the wild Highlands and unique moments with loved one. Every bottle is a one-of-kind. At a time when the world lies at our feet, scarcity and craft have never been more appealing.
MASTERS EXPO 2021
Presenting the world's longest matured whisky
Never in history has a Scotch single malt whisky matured so long: casked in 1940, followed by 80 years of craftmanship and finally bottled by Gordon & MacPhail in 2020.
Distilled on 3 February 1940 by George Urqhaurt and his father, this Glenlivet 80-year old has been watched by generations of experts distillers within Gordon & MacPhail, before being bottled on February 2020. The bottle of this exquisite whisky was designed by renowed archited Sir David Adjaye OBE.
Scotch Whisky Investment has the honour of presenting you the first bottle of The Glenlivet 80-year old whisky, recently acquired through Sotheby’s.
The bottle was introduced by founder Michel Kappen during the Master's EXPO to our Scotch Whisky Investors Club members.

This whisky has been stored in a cask for as long as 65 years, which has improved its taste and thus its price. And the longer it remains sealed, the greater its value will be.
A bottle from this collection is currently worth €9,000. Our forecast (based on extensive research) is its value will increase to €27,000 in 10 years’ time. This means an appreciation of value by as much as 300%. So we recommend you should keep such a bottle under lock and key for a lengthy period of time!
