The steadily increasing number of trades on various whisky auctions around the world make it difficult to keep an overview on the secondary whisky market.

A new whisky portal, Whiskystats.net - which was launched at the end of 2015 - is hoping to tackle this issue.

Combining the auction results from various whisky auctioneers around the globe, the aim of this database clearly focuses on the monetary part of the whisky collectors’ passion.

After a free‐of‐charge registration, the user gains access to the price records of thousands of rare and collectable scotch and Japanese whiskies.

Johannes Moosebrugger, creator of Whiskystats, said: “Web blogs and tasting notes databases are a central part of the today’s whisky community. As more and more people start trading their collectibles, it was about time to create a platform centred around the whisky auctions occurrences.

"The increasing number of online auctioneers make it easy to buy and sell bottles. By collecting and analysing this data, we hope to bring more transparency to the secondary whisky market.”

The monthly updated price database is accompanied by a growing number of tools and services/uses. Indices give a summarized view of the market, while the personal collections enable each user the possibility to track the value of their whiskies.

The Whiskystats Board also serves as a blog where whisky enthusiast Moosbrugger shares his personal observations, thoughts and analyses.

At the moment, Whiskystats is a one‐man project. The developing process is solely driven by the fascination of Moosbrugger for whisky and numbers alike.

“Every feedback, comment and suggestion from the whisky community is highly appreciated. I am constantly working on enlarging the database and adding more functionalities. A profound knowledge of the past prices could help to pay and get paid reasonable prices in the future!”

The portal is located at http://www.whiskystats.net and is active on Facebook and @whiskystatsnet on Twitter well. 

Driven by a passion for all things drinks-related, Sean writes for The Scotsman extensively on the subject. He can also sometimes be found behind the bar at the world famous Potstill bar in Glasgow where he continues to enhance his whisky knowledge built up over 10 years advising customers from all over the world on the wonders of our national drink. Recently, his first book was published. Dubbed Gin Galore, it explores Scotland's best gins and the stories behind those that make them.
