Global Whisky Auctions

Selling Whisky

Every month Global Whisky Auctions aims to bring together some of the most exclusive bottlings in the world of whisky. If you have collected whisky with a view to selling it at some point, then Global Whisky Auctions can help.

The first step on the way to selling your whisky at auction is to make a list of your collection which can then be sent to Global Whisky Auctions for valuation. You will be given estimates for the bottles in your collection. Expensive or inexpensive, all bottles can be placed in one of our monthly whisky auctions. The next step is getting your bottles to the auction premises. Global Whisky Auctions can arrange to collect your bottles for entry into an auction, have a courier collect the bottles or you can deliver the bottles to the auction premises yourself.

Once the bottles arrive at Global Whisky Auctions, they will be catalogued in preparation for auction. Please note - Multiple bottle lots are only available at the discretion of the auctioneer.

for more information on selling and for any valuations of your bottle(s).
