Buying casks of whisky could be more profitable than purchasing precious metals, digital currencies or shares, according to an investment monitor.A new data modelling algorithm has been used to produce the BC20 Whisky Cask Index. It is based around the values of Scotch whisky of various ages produced across a range of distilleries.

The index suggests someone investing $100,000 in whisky casks in July 2018 would have assets worth close to $160,000 by the end of June this year. The same size of initial investment in gold, Bitcoin or the S&P 500 shares index would have returned less than that over the same timeframe

The average annual capital growth rate for casks is greater than 13 per cent although the index notes a variety of scenarios depending on which distillery is chosen. Ardmore was the bottom of the pile with growth of around 5 per cent but for some sought after drams that could rise to close to 20 per cent.
