Failed fine wine firm liquidated

A British wine investment company, Prestige Fine Wine, has been forced into provisional liquidation as part of an ongoing investigation by UK authorities.

The company presented itself as a fine wine investment business specialising in Bordeaux wines. Its director has been named as Mr Ibrahim Tarkou, of Croydon, England. According to online records, Tarkou is 24 years old.

Its website declares that its offices are based in Pall Mall, Westminster, one of the most expensive commercial areas in the UK. However, the Insolvency Service, which is investigating the company, has placed its registered offices in Purley Way, Croydon.

Prestige Fine Wine also claims on its website that it has the experience of “over 25 years in the fine wine collection industry”, but the company was only registered on 5 March 2010.

The company has been contacted by the drinks business for comment.

The case will now be passed to the High Court, with an announcement expected on 16 December.
