There is a lot of talk about specific alcohol companies worth a serious look this year. In 2022 they reflect several possible outcomes for what is turning out to be another volatile year.
The world is brimming with specialists ready to throw easy-go money into the exciting sips of alcoholic drinks. Today alcoholic beverage companies like Boston Beer, Constellation Brands, and Hoosier Beer suffered a volatile period in 2020 amid the Coronavirus crisis. However, as the economic recovery begins and restaurants and travel spots open, these companies will see huge profits in the coming months. Let’s dive into alcohol brands that are booming.
Glenfiddich, 50-year-old single malt scotch whiskey. At an Eidenberg auction, a single malt that has been aged for more than six decades sold for $37,245. The bottle was purchased over the phone by an unknown customer and is one of 62 created by the Glenfiddich distillery. Last July, Peter Gordon, the current chairman and fifth-generation grandson of the distilleries founder William Grant released the Glenfiddich at a private event at the Glenfiddich distillery in Dufftown, Scotland. This little additional whiskey was released in 50 bottles over the following ten years.
The 62-year-old Dalmore Scotch whiskey. After a Chinese buyer paid £125,000 for the final remaining Delmore 62 bottle at Singapore’s Changi Airport, it has become the most expensive bottle of scotch whiskey to note. It is a bottle released from master distiller Richard Patterson’s collection. It beat the previous record for a bottle of whiskey, which was set earlier this year when £120,000 was paid for the last Dalmore 64 at Harrods before being decanted into a crystal bottle with a handcrafted platinum stacks head. The Ram whiskey was donated to the airport. The Delmore 62 cost £25,000 when it was first released in 2002. At the time, it was the most expensive whiskey ever sold at auction. Another bottle of whiskey sold for £32,000 at the Pennyhill Park Hotel in Surrey, with practically the entire bottle consumed in one sitting by the buyer.
And finally, we have Tequila Ley Diamante. The company created an artistic bottle of 3.7 to five kilos of Tara platinum and 4100 diamonds for an astonishing 328.59 carats to give such a symbolic beverage the importance and value it deserves. It took ten months to complete from design to completion, involving the efforts of 17 Mexican artisans and artists through ceramics, ten jewellers for the platinum hovering and Diamond mounters – weighing close to 18 pounds. The tequila is exceptionally matured with a unique blend of three-six and nine-year-old white oak barrels from the company’s Los Altos de Jalisco plantations. Berlin, Hong Kong, Madrid, London, Moscow and Paris are just a few cities where alcohol has been displayed.
The world of alcoholic beverages is intriguing and full of experiments, but invest in one of these, and you are guaranteed to win big – quick while the drink lasts.
