Description

‘There’s more to whisky than Macallan,’ says Rickesh Kishnani, CEO of the Platinum Whisky Investment Fund, which offers investors a chance to cash in on the growth in demand for single malt scotch whisky.

Asian buyers are quickly cashing in on Japan’s luxury whiskies, says Kishnani, as that’s where the thirst for the spirit originated from in the region. ‘Japan is closer geographically than Scotland, and the Yen has been low for the last few years – plenty of tourists travel there from Hong Kong and China,’ he explains.

And if you’re looking for a good investment, Kishnani says, look to the ‘silent stills’: distilleries that closed in the 1980s and 90s.
