To all liquor lovers and bottle collectors out there, have you ever thought how much your collection would be worth today?

What factors classify a liquor as rare?

The key concept is scarcity. It is difficult to get rare liquors for a number of reasons:

  • Limited Bottle Production: For their rarest spirits, distilleries frequently only make a certain quantity of bottles. These disappear after they’re gone. In an attempt to obtain as many numbered bottles as they can, collectors race against the clock.
  • Limited Edition Releases: These alcoholic beverages are only offered in small amounts or for a restricted period of time. They could be released to honor a special single cask, season, or occasion. Locating these rare editions makes collecting much more exciting.
  • Age: A bottle of whiskey becomes more valuable as it gets older. Finding bottles that are decades old is the source of great excitement for numerous collectors. It can be thrilling to hunt for a bottle that is more than fifty years old.

Bottles To Consider in Your Collection

The Dalmore 40-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

This classic Highland single malt is carefully aged in three stages: first in American white oak barrels that were last used for Bourbon, then in 30-year-old Matusalem Oloroso sherry casks. Its complex and deep aroma, evocative of Colombian coffee with notes of marmalade and dates, captivates us despite its gorgeous packaging. The flavor profile is a lovely combination of gingerbread, Manuka honey, and molasses, with notes of blood orange, coconut, and apples.

Macallan 18-Year-Old Sherry Oak

Renowned for its fine whisky, the Macallan distillery is a well-known and iconic Scottish brand. Every year, there are a few limited releases, and fans compete fiercely for them via voting. A smart investment option is the highly sought-after Macallan 18-Year-Old Sherry Oak, which is released every year. These bottles give regular profits at a lesser risk, and they tend to appreciate quickly after release.

Michter’s Celebration Sour Mash 2022

Since its beginnings in the Pennsylvania Blue Mountains in 1753, Michter’s has developed into a renowned manufacturer of small-batch bourbon. Any of Michter’s limited edition releases are investments that should be taken into consideration, though opening and enjoying them might make them even more satisfying.

Michter’s Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey was just released and honors the history and unique mashing method of the distillery. This is Celebration Sour Mash’s fourth installment. There are only 328 bottles available on the market, so this is a great chance to purchase and possibly earn a sizable return on investment!
