Hi all,


I'm new here and am looking to sell the majority of my collection. Has anyone done this before and how would I go about doing it in the UK? I'd be looking for the buyer to collect.


It would be around 25 bottles.

If you want to sell it together you will struggle, you are better off contacting someone like Scotch Whisky Auctions or WhiskyAuctioneer and sell them separately, you will have something like a £3 listing fee for each bottle but at the moment SWA still charge no commission and WA only charge 5%.

There are loads of other on line auctions, Just Whisky, Whisky.Auction. Whisky on line auctions etc

If you google it new ones are springing up all the time, 0-15% commission depending on who you go with.

Alternatively you could sell it on the Market here, I believe commission is 8%/

It might be an idea to add the full list of bottles to 'your collection' so people have an idea about what you are selling.  25 bottles could be less than £1000 or 10's of £1000's.

It looks like the `collection` is newly acquired GOT bottles at the moment.

Diageo sure did a good stunt with this one! Certainly as it's mostly 'cheap-o' whisky that's got a new coating, surfing the wave as they say. Too bad for the numerous 'investors' who will be having a lot of bottles just sitting there and most probably not gaining any value.

You must be a blind fool to buy any of that GoT crap on auction right now. 
Keep on going like this, that bubble will burst.

Probably the worst thing to do if you want to speculate in a mid term plan. eve short term the tproposal seems stupid. 

Drinking alcohol wont solve my problems, but neither will milk !
