Rare whisky market continues to expand
Whiskies drove some auction houses to report record spirits sales in 2022 and UK-based fine wine merchants have also reported strong consumer demand, as Decanter publishes a new Collector’s Guide to this growing market.
Recent figures have provided more evidence of major players in the fine wine trade developing their presence in the rare whisky market.
Auction houses Sotheby’s and Zachys have reported record spirits sales for 2022, while UK-based merchant Bordeaux Index said in January that the secondary market for rare whisky remains ‘exceptionally strong’. Fellow merchant Goedhuis & Co also reported whisky sales up by 20% in value in 2022, led by Scotch.
