FAQs

What happens if my item does not meet the reserve price I set?

If your item fails to meet a reserve price, we still require the listing fee and reserve fee be paid. 

We will then offer you a chance to re-list the item (subject to fees) or discuss returning the bottle to you (subject to delivery charge).

What fees are involved for selling whisky?

There is a £5 listing fee per bottle (not per lot). Once a bottle is sold, sellers pay a 5% commission on the final sale price.

If you wish to place a reserve on an item there is a fee of £7.50 per lot.

Please note VAT is charged to commission, listing and reserve fees.  VAT is not applicable to the hammer price of the whisky.

More information including additional fees, reserve price restrictions and payment terms can be found here.

How much is my whisky worth?

The value of a bottle of whisky is constantly fluctuating according to supply and demand. Whisky Auctioneer can provide a valuation according to the latest market trends. If you would like a free, no-obligation valuation, please visit our Free Auction Estimate page.
