Co-founder and CEO of Whiskey & Wealth Club. Scott is an investment and business aficionado. He started his first business aged only 19, building it up to 11 retail outlets before selling to a larger competitor. Along with his business acumen, Scott comes to Whiskey & Wealth Club with 17 years’ experience in the investment industry.
Originally from Sydney, Scott has been based in London for the past 10 years and enjoys regular trips to his favourite Irish distilleries.
The business operates much like any other wholesale model. We’ve seen a great deal of interest from investors looking to diversify their portfolios. There is a real demand from people wanting to invest in whiskey. As a result we’re investing in our staffing too. We now have 19 staff, up from four in January. We’ll continue to expand as we open up the Scotch market.
We’re in this for the long haul and we see a huge future in the whiskey investment market. Irish whiskey is the fastest growing spirit in the world with exports growing 300% over the last decade, according to Irish food board, Bord Bia. Making it a huge opportunity for investors. The Scotch market is much more established but there is still a huge unwavering demand for aged whisky.
