2021 has brought with it changes for many and Whisky Auctioneer is no different. As we all adapt to life post Brexit and COVID here are some things worth bearing in mind when bidding in our auctions.

 

 

1. Lot location icons

 

These new icons appear on every lot in our auctions now. Hover over or tap on the icon to find out more information about where the lot is located and what this means for you. Find out more about lot location icons here.

 

2. Split order shipments

If you have chosen to ship your order and it contains lots sold from both our UK and EU offices please expect to receive this in two shipments, with dispatch notifications sent for each. Find out more information about our shipping service here.

 

3. Tax and/or duty payments

If you live in the UK and have bought a lot from our EU office or live in the EU and have bought a lot from our UK office you will receive a phone call from the courier delivering your order in respect of a tax and/or duty payment due on entry to your country. Find out more about this here.

 

4. Book an appointment

If you plan to collect an order from our UK office please make sure you book an appointment first, otherwise our staff will not be able to assist you. You can book an appointment here. Please also note that due to restrictions currently in place in Germany our EU office is not available for in person collections at this time.

 

5. Storage locations

Just as we are auctioning and shipping bottles from our UK and EU offices we will now also be offering our storage service from both of these locations. If you choose to store an order that contains bottles located in both offices, please be aware that this is where they will be stored. Find out more about our storage service here.
