    Johannes,

    Really interesting article. The Gini coefficient is a great way of looking at it. So the Whisky world is a bit like the real world. On average everyone getting richer but the lion’s share going to those at the top.

    I look forward to part 2.

    Hi Alan,
    yes exactly, the difference between the top and the bottom increases. Especially when considering that we currently do not track those few ultra-premium auctions of Bonhams, Sotheby’s and the like. With them, the effect would be even more pronounced.

    Johannes,
    The number of bottles and their value has been increasing over the years.
    This could be due to
    1 The same number of people buying more bottles
    2 More people buying the same number of bottles.
    3 Somewhere in between.
    Do you have any data on the number of market participants?

    Thanks
    Alan

    Hi Alan,
    no, at the moment we do not have any information about the buyer.
    I think it is a combination of both, more people are trading more bottles on auctions.

    Best wishes,
    Johannes
