Deliver your bottles

We require that all items are brought or sent directly to Whisky Auctioneer at :  

Whisky Auctioneer  
West Building, Ruthvenfield Grove
Inveralmond Industrial Estate
United Kingdom

Please include a list of bottles within parcels and note your name, address, email and any reserves you would like.


Courier Collection - quick and easy to organise

Courier collection can be easily organised. Bottles must be properly packaged by the seller. Please note that couriers do not insure against breakages and all responsibility for the item is strictly with the sender. We are able to send packaging material to ensure safe transit, however, a cost of £5.00 is assigned per item and a postage charge for your region. If you decide to package the items yourself, please use a strong cardboard box and plenty of bubble wrap. We are not liable for items damaged in transit to us.

Whisky Auctioneer Collection

We are frequently traveling around the country and can arrange a collection personally from you, where feasible. A mileage charge and minimum bottle requirement may apply. Find out more about our upcoming collection dates here.

Drop Off

Our office is open Monday to Saturday 10:00-17:00.


Once the items are received, Whisky Auctioneer will confirm the quality and condition of the items and if acceptable they can then be listed in the next auction. Whisky Auctioneer will also confirm any reserve price you would like applied to your lots. Please note that we can only accept reserves of £150 and above.


Watch lots

Whilst the auction is active you are able to monitor the progress of your lots in My Account.


Once the item is sold, payment is made to the seller within 21 business days. Please note our terms and conditions regarding payment made to the seller, as this is dependent on the buyer paying us.

If you are enquiring about selling products from outwith the U.K, we can arrange collection from many countries - please contact us for more information and pricing.  If you place a reserve on a lot and it does not sell we can either list it in a subsequent auction (subject to fees) or arrange for delivery back to yourself (subject to delivery charge).

Please Note: Due to Minimum Unit Pricing legislation in Scotland, we have introduced a starting bid of £15 per lot.
