Whisky Database Milestone

15. March 2020 | 1.5K Views

With the latest database update we now count more than 60 thousand bottles of whisky in our database. Together with the almost 700 thousand price observations this data enables you and us to draw a detailed picture of the secondary whisky market like no else. 

Until now we restricted our attention to those bottles which were traded at at least two different round of auctions. We now dropped this self imposed restriction to give you full access to all bottles of whisky we observed on the market. In total there are more than 23 thousand bottles in our whisky database which appeared on auctions only once. Nevertheless, this can be crucial information when trying to assess a price.
 
In addition this enables you to further complete your digital whisky collection on Whiskystats. You can now add all those seldomly traded bottles to your collections. And as soon as they have been traded again, you will notice a price update in your portfolio.

U.S. Whisky

One interesting side effect of adding these bottles was that the United States are now the fourth most traded whisky region we track. Responsible for this seems to be the Buffalo Trace distillery. This Kentucky Bourbon distillery and it´s sub-brands now account for almost 2,2% of all the bottles being traded. Especially the single cask Blanton bottlings often appeare on auctions only once.

Ardbeg 1999 Galileo / 12 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
70cl / 49% / Distillery Bottling - One of 2012's most hotly-anticipated releases, Ardbeg Galileo is made up from casks distilled in 1999, some of which spent their full term of maturation in casks that previously held Marsala wine, imparting sweet tropical fruit flavours to the mix. Galileo's concept is in celebration of the well-publicised experiment whereby small quantities of Ardbeg were sent into space at the end of 2011 to see how they mature in zero gravity.
