There’s more to whisky than Macallan,’ says CEO of The Whisky Investment Fund Rickesh Kishnani. The seven year fund aims to return 15 to 17 per cent to investors. Asian buyers are cashing in on Japan’s luxury whiskies, he explains, as it’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. And for Asian speakers, the names are easier to pronounce.’ If you’re looking for a good investment, he says, look to the ‘silent stills’ — distilleries which closed down in the 1980s and 90s. ‘They provide great opportunity for both discerning collectors and for those looking for a long-term investment.’
