A drop of alcohol kept in the Whisky Coin is the oldest whisky in the world, Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862. When this extraordinary whisky was distilled among Scottish hills, the world was just in the middle of the age of steam, undergoing changes driven by the Industrial Revolution. This whisky is a real unique piece in the Wealth Solutions company’s collection. This genuine beverage was used in the project by courtesy of Sukhinder Singh, a famous British collector of rare alcoholic beverages and owner of The Whisky Exchange

Spirit Coins are not only about securing segments of the family fortune for future generations. It is an investment in the rarity of the highest fineness.
THE OLDEST SPIRITS
Harewood Rum 1780
1780 Harewood Rum was distilled almost 250 years ago in Barbados. Its name came from the Harewood estate in central England, where the bottle of this unique spirit was found in 2011. Shortly after it had been found, the 1780 Harewood Rum bottle was moved to the Wealth Solutions’ collection. This spirit also entered Guinness World Records as the oldest rum in the world. Now, this alcoholic beverage is launched in the market in a new form, encapsulated in a gold Rum Coin.
Cognac Gautier 1762
1762 marks the unveiling of the famous di Trevi fountain in Rome, Catherine the Great becoming the emperor of Russia, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s publication of his Social Contract. At that time, the grapes used for the production of the liquor hidden inside the Cognac Coin were born.
The liquor is an item that belongs to Wealth Solutions’ collection. It was granted the title of the oldest cognac sold at a public auction to-date. This fact has been confirmed by an official entry in the Guinness Book of Records.
