rum bottle valuation

If you have a bottle or collection that you are interested in selling, we'd love to help. Wondering how much your rum might be worth? Our experienced team are on hand to provide free expert valuations on your bottles to give you an indication of what they might fetch at auction.

GETTING A VALUATION

 

1. TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS

In order for our team to be able to provide an estimate on the value of your bottle(s) which is as accurate as possible, we require clear front and back images of the product. This will allow us to take into account the condition of the bottle and how this may affect hammer prices.

 

2. TELL US ABOUT YOUR BOTTLE

When submitting an auction estimate request, please make sure that you fill out all of your contact details along with descriptive details of the item you would like to sell such as its name, vintage (if applicable), age etc. Documentation is optional but if you have any please include a copy as this will help to verify authenticity.

 

3. SUBMIT REQUEST AND RECEIVE YOUR ESTIMATE

Once you have all of the above information to hand, submit your request using the below button and a member of our team will be in touch shortly with your valuation.
