NAVIGATING AN AUCTION
Exploring the entire auction? Sort by the highest bid price, lowest bid price, lot title A-Z and lot title Z-A. If you are looking for a bargain, then sort the auction by Bid Price (Lowest) to explore the lower end of the auction and perhaps discover an overlooked gem!
Exploring a specific area? If your interest lies in a specific area then use our handy filter bar to narrow down your search. Our filter terms cover a wide range of criteria, so whether it is a specific distillery, region, type, age or a combination of these things, select all of the options that apply to your search and discover what the auction has to offer.
Know exactly what you are looking for? Enter the details of the bottle into the search bar at the top right of the page to bring up all the relevant lots in the current auction. Perhaps you would like to know what this bottle has sold for in a previous auction? Just tick the previous auction box next to the search bar to find every example previously sold by Whisky Auctioneer.
USING THE WATCH LIST FEATURE
So you’ve found multiple bottles that you are interested in, but are not ready to place a bid?
Don’t lose track of them in the wider auction and add them to your Watch List by selecting the star in the top right corner of the lot image. You can then access your full Watch List via your personal dashboard, monitor the bottles over the course of the auction and place that bid when you are ready.
REVIEWING A LOT BEFORE BIDDING
We provide clear images of every lot in the auction so that you have a good understanding of what you are bidding on. Lots are sold as seen, so before placing a bid be sure to carefully review the images and the lot description including any reports on condition and get in touch with any questions that might arise. Our team are also happy to provide further images or a condition report on request. Make sure you understaned the icons on the lot showing lot location and any other considerations such as whether it is in-bond for example - you can read the Guide to Lot Icons here.
