Collecting rare and old bottles of whiskey is not new, but putting money into it as an investment opportunity has become quite the thing in the last few years. The market is booming, with fresh sale records being created in very close intervals. Be it the two limited edition bottles of the Macallan from 1926 that were recently auctioned for a staggering $1.2 million, or even something like the 50-year-old Yamazaki that created a record for the world’s most expensive Japanese whisky by selling for $343,318, the interest in rare, exclusive whiskeys have never been this high. However, it would be an absolute shame if these prized collectibles are locked in opaque lockers where they can’t be admired. A Taiwan-based company has come up with a handcrafted Whiskey Vault that’ll keep the million-dollar booze collection safe while still showcasing them in style.
The Whiskey Vault with a solid steel plate construction, bullet-proof glass, and a tri-spoke handle machined from aircraft aluminum. The interior is illuminated by LED lights, while the unit is equipped with an UL Certified LA GARD electronic locking system. It sits on a solid wood cabinet with 800kg capacity leveling casters and can hold up to 40 bottles of the finest whiskey. Each vault is individually numbered and custom built to order. The company’s founder Todd Lawrence notes, the cabinets are built for “whisky collectors who were looking for a secure place to show their collection without having to worry about bottles going missing or accidentally being opened by drunk friends.” If you want one for your whiskey collection, you can directly order it from their website with prices starting at $6000.
