We endeavour to make the market more accessible for buyers and sellers of any background and geography. In our monthly auctions, you will find a diverse range of rare, unusual and interesting rums; from the dark and full tasting examples of Barbados, or the smoother lighter rums of Cuba and the distinctly punchy rhum agricoles of Guadeloupe, a wide and varied selection of rums are waiting to be discovered in our auctions.

We are passionate about connecting these bottles with those who share in our passion and actively support our customers in their aims, whether that be consuming, collecting or investing.

How does an online rum auction work?

Individual sellers consign to auction through our offices in Perth (UK or global based sellers) or Germany (EU based sellers). Once they have been authenticated by our highly-experienced team, photographs are taken and the bottles are listed on the website in the next available auction. Rum Auctioneer hosts rum auctions on a frequent basis, during which registered users across the globe can bid on bottles online. The highest bidder at the close of the auction is then notified by email and asked for payment within 3 days. The seller receives payment within 21 working days of the end of the auction.

I have a large collection to sell - can Rum Auctioneer help me?

Yes. Rum Auctioneer can offer sellers a full range of services when it comes to larger private collections. The time and effort required to build such a collection shows commitment, care and enthusiasm and as rum enthusiasts ourselves, we understand this and use our extensive experience in order to treat collectors prized possessions with the respect, esteem and attention they deserve. We work hand in hand with private collectors to make the process of using our services as seamless and straightforward as possible.
