Fine wine (and spirits) has proven to be a lucrative investment in recent years and for good reason. Initial supply is limited due to the nature of regulations and production. Subsequently, bottles are consumed, reducing supply. Demand, then, only needs to be constant for prices to go up.
Over the past 15 years, fine wine investment has continuously proven itself to be a good alternative investment with a historical compound annual growth of 10.6% and remaining largely insensitive to bigger macroeconomic influences. Over the last 5 years, as measured by the Livex 100, prices have increased by 35%.
At the moment we see inflation rates of 10% and more, around the world. Holding cash whilst there is rampant inflation is not a viable strategy. Stock markets don’t provide safety either, as they are going down, the S&P 500 by 17% in the last year. Property did perform well, but with interest rates now going up, most experts expect prices to come down.
It is during these uncertain economic times that investors turn to alternative, tangible assets to combat these hikes in inflation and diversify their portfolios. Fine wine & spirits are often used to this end. Unlike other tangible assets such as gold, wine has consistently become more valuable.
The main reason why prices of wine and whisky are going up is simple demand and supply. Supply is limited and decreases over time as bottles are consumed. So as long as demand is constant, prices have to go up. But demand (for luxury goods in general) is actually increasing rapidly, fueling impressive price growth.
