Vint is a real-alternative asset manager that has expanded access to wine and spirits investing by securitizing collections within the sector. While the global wine and spirits market is substantial in size, investment-grade wines and spirits only make up a small percentage of overall production.
These limited bottles and vintages offer investors a range of interesting considerations.
Wines and spirits is an alternative asset class that doesn’t always move in correlation with traditional stocks, bonds, and real estate.
Wine and spirits are real assets that physically exist in the world.
Fine wine and spirits of substantial enough value for investment can bring interesting history and character, making them alluring to both investors and collectors alike.
Fine wines and rare spirits with longer aging processes mature over time, which can also increase their price points as they grow older. And beyond bottles, the industry has seen innovation more broadly, like authentication and traceability of a bottle’s history via blockchain.
Alcohol beverages and their trade have been a mainstay of human civilization for countless generations. And where there is commerce, there is investment. Fine wine and spirits have been long standing investment opportunities, with recent examples fetching impressive sales at auction.
Examples provided are for illustration only and do not represent fund holdings. Refer to official documents for accurate information.
Take, for example, the Macallan Adami 1926—a bottle of single malt Scotch whisky that was auctioned at Sotheby’s in November 2023 for a record-breaking price of $2.7 million(2).
