How to sell whisky in our online auction?

How much is my whisky worth

Learn how to sell your whisky collection in our online whisky auction

Whisky-Online Auctions is a family run business who have been dealing in whisky for over 25 years. We are World leaders in selling and auctioning Old, Rare & Obscure whisky as well as rare whisky Miniatures, Rum, Cognac & other Spirits. You can no longer sell whisky on eBay or Facebook so using our bespoke online auction platform is the best way to sell your whisky online. Our aim is to work together to get you the very best price for your whisky. Our auctioneers Wayne & Harrison Ormerod don’t over promise in their free valuations but work tirelessly to overperform on the final hammer price. Our team are on hand to assist at every stage of the auction, keeping you up to date throughout the process from initial valuation to final payment.
