Platinum Wines provides full buying support, assistance with transport and storage, exit strategies, monthly market and quarterly portfolio evaluation services specific to our private clients’ holdings of fine wines and rare whiskies. Some key features of our service and fees for whisky investors are:
• One-off investments can be made into collections or through a monthly whisky collection plan starting at as little as £250 per month
• Storage at London City Bond is £60 for up to 45 bottles per year including insurance
• 10% performance fee (applied to the profit) at exit
• No annual portfolio management fees or early exit fees
Finally: How do I track how my investment is doing?
There is unfortunately no one place to go to get a spot price on whisky assets, although you can observe the last traded prices at auctions and compare listings at online whisky retailers. To observe indices for a quick general market view, you can visit RareWhisky101.com, which tracks the performance of whisky bottles at UK auctions.
More established whisky merchants should be willing to provide portfolio evaluations and reports both periodically and upon request, free of charge, as an after-sales service.
