Investing in Booze

Why put your money in a bank when you could buy a barrel of whisky?! Olly Mann meets Leo Scott-Francis, who offers private investors the opportunity to buy first-fill sherry casks. Leo gives Olly a crash-course in the market, and a taste of his own-brand of whisky, currently maturing underground in Scotland. But will Olly sign up us a client? Meanwhile, in The Zeitgeist, Ollie Peart considers the drugs-on-demand business in which Snoop has invested his doggy dosh; spends longer than is healthy looking at GIFs of Shia LaBeouf; and reveals that, as a child, he was a contender to be CHOCOLATE SUPERSTAR the Milkybar Kid. In our weekly trip down The Foxhole, our resident love guru Alix Fox advises a couple who are struggling to keep the fizz in their long-distance relationship. It's nothing that a lubricated sleeve and a Bluetooth connection can't fix, apparently. If you'd like to send in a question for Alix, leave us some feedback or buy us a beer, just visit modernmann.co.uk.
