Whisky investments have been around for some time now – with the value of high-end spirits steadily rising over the years. Like fine wine, whisky distilled in a particular year is a highly finite product. Everything from the year’s barley harvest, to the still used (whisky stills are occasionally rebuilt, cleaned, or modified) and, of course, the age of the whisky affects its character and rarity. This scarcity, plus demand, has cemented fine whiskies as an increasingly popular alternative investment.
Now, Rare Cask Holdings, a subsidiary of PrimePartners Corporate Finance Holdings (PPCFH), has announced a listing “Southeast Asia’s first digital ABS linked to exclusive casks of single-malt Scotch Whisky” on private exchange HGX, which is jointly operated by PhillipCapital, PrimePartners and Fundnel, and powered by Zilliqa technology.
