    A couple of weeks ago, I was listening to Radio 2 (Jeremy Vine) and they where discussing the moving trend off people investing the savings in wine rather then placing it in a ISA/Savings account as apparently, the returns are better

    This got me stated to think about investing a small amounts of money (just for fun) in Whiskey and was wondering if any AVforum user(s) have actually brought and sold (like on a online auction site) Whiskey and if so, what sites did you use...

    Thanks in advance

    I would be surprised if there was a trend of people switching from isas to wine - partly as people have lost a *lot* of money one wine due to it being largely unregulated. Is there an article related to the program?

    All investments are a gamble - even the humble pension.

    Only buy what you can afford to lose and have fun.

    Yes, but there's gamble like 'I'm investing in this, I hope it does well' and gamble like 'I'm investing in this, I hope it really exists'

    I don't think I could invest in WHISKY as I would be too tempted to just drink it!
