Spirits and whisky valuation

Our Spirits Valuation Service

We may be called the The London Wine Cellar, but over the past 6 years we’ve become one of the UK’s most respected and prolific buyers of whisky and spirits.

As experts on a range of different spirits, from whisky to chartreuse, we’d love to buy any vintage or rare spirits you’re looking to sell. At the moment, we’re particularly keen to acquire old and rare whisky, chartreuse, cognac, rum, calvados, vermouth, brandy and armagnac. If you happen to own a spirit that is not on this short list we may still be interested and are always excited to discuss any bottles that are important to you and that you would like to place a value on.

If you have decided the time is right to cash in on your special bottles, The London Wine Cellar offers a quick, stress-free way to sell them for a great price. We’ll buy anything from a single bottle of whisky to special-edition casks, and can facilitate purchases of any size on immediate settlement terms.

How much is my whisky worth?

There’s a lot to look out for when determining the value of your whisky. We’ve explained a few key indicators of value below for you to explore before contacting us for a free whisky valuation.

  • Distillation date

    Begin by looking into the year your whisky was distilled — this can start to give you an idea of its value.

  • Bottling date

    Knowing when the whisky left the cask and entered the bottle determines its age: a whisky is not deemed to age once it leaves the cask.

  • Limited editions

    Single cask editions or those related to a particular event are always liable to be worth more than ordinary bottles.

  • Appearance

    Whiskies still in their original box and with an undamaged label are likely more valuable than those with significant wear and tear.

  • Level

    Ideally, your whisky’s level will be into the neck of the bottle.

I looked up 'wine valuations' and studied various companies and their services.
