Whisky Auctioneer is an online platform specializing in the auctioning of whisky and other spirits. It offers a range of products, including Scotch whisky, Japanese whisky, Irish whiskey, bourbon, and various other world whiskies.

Sellers can list their bottles on Whisky Auctioneer after receiving valuations and advice on how to get their bottles to the UK Head Office. The bottles are then checked, authenticated, and photographed before being listed in the next available auction. Whisky Auctioneer also caters to sellers with large collections, providing tailored services to accommodate their needs.

The platform holds monthly auctions where registered users can bid on the listed bottles. The auction end date is displayed on the website, and active bidding can prolong the auction beyond the official end time. The bidding process is incremental, automatically raising the bid level until it reaches the bidder's maximum. An identity check is required for bids over £2,000.

Following the auction, the highest bidder is notified via email and must make payment within 72 hours. The buyer can choose to ship, store, or collect their purchase, with applicable buyer fees. Sellers receive payment within 21 business days from the auction end, provided the buyer has paid.

Additional services offered by Whisky Auctioneer include storage services for multiple orders and Loss & Breakage Assurance for items, which protects against loss and breakage during shipping at a cost of 3% of the total hammer price and commission.

In conclusion, Whisky Auctioneer provides a platform for the auctioning of whisky and spirits, catering to the needs of both buyers and sellers. For more detailed information about their services, visit the Whisky Auctioneer website and FAQ page.

Whisky Auctioneer is the world leading platform for the buying and selling of whisky and spirits at auction. Our global auctions feature the most comprehensive selection of old, rare and collectible whiskies and spirits available online.
