According to a report by Rare Whisky 101, which measures the value of 1,000 of the most sought after drinks, the value of collectable bottles of single-malt Scotch whisky sold at auction in the UK rose by more than 90 per cent in the first half of 2017 to £11.6 million.
A 50-year-old single malt brand, Macallan, sold for £65,210, making it the most expensive one last year.
According to whisky experts whisky is considered a safe investment, because at "the worst case scenario" you'll sell a bottle at the same price you bought it in the first place.
However rare or unique single cask malts from a well known distillery will be worth much more than you paid for it.
A recent sale of a 50 year old Macallan purchased in 1985: £40 including VAT recently sold at auction in New York for $25,000.
