We hope you enjoy our web site and look forward to hearing from you !

Sell Your Whisky

If you would like to sell your bottle(s) or cask(s) then we would love to hear from you. The best way to do this is to use our contact form at the bottom of this page. When you contact us please attach a picture using the form as this is important for us to judge the quality, condition and value of the item.

Please note that we cannot make an offer without at least one picture. Your picture(s) should include a full length image of the bottle and the closure of the bottle (i.e. cork, capsule or screw cap). The fill level and the condition of the label should also be clearly visible in the picture. It’s also important that you tell us if your bottle has a box or certificate included and, if it does, then show us that in a separate picture.

Any additional information you can provide such as the history or provenance of your item is always particularly helpful as is information on how and where it has been stored during its time.

Cask Purchases

We offer excellent advice on the best way to sell your cask of whisky or rum and can take care of everything from preparing all the necessary paper work, movement of casks to our warehouse, and, of course, offering a fair market value.

We need a small sample from each cask we buy and it is the seller’s responsibility to provide this. When a sample is drawn we ask that the seller instructs the distillery to regauge the cask as this allows us to give an accurate valuation. Once we have conducted a tasting we can make an offer to buy your cask and complete the transaction very quickly.

Finally, please be aware that we receive dozens requests every day and, although we do our best to answer them as quickly as possible, sometimes it can take some time to reply to you. In extreme cases, where we need to make enquiries regarding your particular item, it can take up to thirty days to get back to you although this is, like the whisky we buy, rare.
