Bells Blended Whisky Valuations

 

Do you want to know the value of your bottle of Bells whisky?

Bells is a type of blended whisky, read on to find out how much it is worth.

The Value & Sale of Bells Whisky

Bells whisky was first blended in 1851, it was created as part of the boom in demand for blended whisky and and a desire to create a more consistent product. Desire for single malt whisky was low after a few unscrupulous distillers of the time had released less than perfect spirits. In contrast well blended whisky was becoming increasingly popular for its ease of drinking and reliable taste.

In the 20th century Bells focused its attention on a different market than the other distillers of the time: enjoying whisky with a mixer, which made them hugely popular with women and saw their revenue skyrocket. Bells continues to be one of the most popular whiskies in the UK – at least with the general public – thanks to its ease of drinking and ubiquitous nature in almost all bars and pubs.

How much is your Bells whisky worth?

Despite their popularity with drinkers, bottles of blended whisky simply do not command the same prices as their single malt counterpart. Blended whisky does not have the same market for collectors, largely due to the fact that they are by their nature mass produced, and as such are relatively easy to get hold of.

Limited edition bottles, decanters and ‘bells’ of Bells were produced, but still at an incredibly large scale (compared to a few hundred bottles from a single cask) and the contents of them was still the same standard Bells whisky as a regular bottle.

Bottles of Bells whisky rarely reach more than £50. This includes commemorative bottles and bell shaped decanters. Bottles of Bells from the early 20th Century can sell for around £100, in which case you should contact a specialist auction.

If you have a bottle of Bells whisky then we would suggest pouring yourself a dram and enjoying this easy drinking whisky with a few friends. Once a commemorative bottle is empty you can then sell it on eBay/Facebook Marketplace where memorabilia collectors may be interested in the decanter (please note that it is illegal to sell alcohol on either of these platforms so make sure the bottle is clearly empty).
