It might surprise you to learn that one of the most important actions you can take is to capture high-quality images of your bottles.

    2. Do you have the original box? If so, place it next to the bottle in the photo.
    3. Capture the images in a well-lit room, ideally against a neutral background.

    I had a bottle of 25 year Anniversary McAllan and was looking at the options available.Direct selling / via broker / go to auction?To be honest, I wasn't looking forward to this. I'd convinced myself that this whole process was going to be a bit of a pain.I'd envisioned bargaining back and forth with various entities, paying through the nose for commissions / insurance / postage etc...So, did some investigation, looked at number of these possibilities and decided to contact Mark Littler.No regrets.Quite simply: Great service from ML teamSo, what was good?Prompt communicationClear defined processesVery fair price offeredBottle Return process : Fully insured, solid packing materials provided.Contract clear & simple (client copy provided)Payment was completed within two days of them receiving my bottleSo thanks Matt & Rachel.Your professionalism and friendly service has been greatly appreciated.Kind regards,Brian

    Do You Remember This Story?

    In 2020 we sold a vertical of Macallan 18 year old for Matthew Robson for £44,000!

    The story went viral being covered from the BBC, to India, to the USA.  

    Matthew had been given a bottle every year from his father as a birthday gift and at the time of sale amounted to 28 bottles, all with their original boxes.

    Now We Can Help You

    It was a pleasure to work with Matthew, assisting him in obtaining the highest possible amount for his collection. Now, let us use our experience and connections to assist you.

    “I was looking to sell my whisky collection of 28 bottles of Macallan 18 year old to fund the purchase of my first house, so I got in touch with Mark.

    My father gave me 1 bottle each year for a birthday present so that by the time that I was 18 I would have 18 bottles of 18 year old Macallan. (Yes I’m that guy who was plastered over the media)

    Mark did a great job of getting professional photos taken of them and creating a PR buzz around the collection and I even ended up on BBC breakfast news, lad bible, and various radio stations around the world.

    At one point my story was the second most viewed story on BBC world wide news app for the whole weekend with over 2 million views.

    Needless to say within a day or two of this PR Campaign there was numerous offers.

    I would like to thank Mark for all his work and helping me with everything.”

    The History Of Rare Malts Selection Whisky

    The Rare Malts Selection is a series of bottlings that were first released by United Distillers and the Distillers Company Ltd. (it later became Diageo) in 1995. Most of its bottlings were from single malts or distilleries that had either closed or been demolished. Others were from casks that had been found tucked away in existing distilleries. The whiskies had to be aged between 18 and 30 years old and from the years 1969-1981.

    Some of the many interesting and rare single malts they own include Aultmore, Benrinnes, Benromach, Blair Athol, Brora, Cardhu, Millburn, Linkwood and Teaninich. The original goal, after success with Flora & Fauna and Classic Malts collections, was to compensate for the reduction in blended whisky sales and the growing love of single malts.

    Thanks to the success of the original range, Diageo continued to offer Special Releases from 2001 onwards. All their bottlings are un-chill-filtered and at cask strength. As proof of their natural state, the company offers warnings that anyone buying their bottles should dilute the drink with two-thirds of water and that they could be cloudy or ‘dirty’. GuinnessUDV, who now owns the companies behind the collection, continues to offer bottlings.

    Bottles were released in limited supplies and have been cared for according to the producers’ guidelines. This allowed them to select the best bottles; with the highest quality and consistency. They have a cork stopper and volumes vary depending on date of release, are either 75cl or 70cl, with two releases of 20cl; a 20-year-old Brora and a 22-year-old Dailuaine.

    Initially the RMS were not destined for over-the-counter sales and as such were limited to three releases per year, between 1995-1998, after which it was reduced to one per year to protect the dwindling stocks. The last release was in 2005; in total 121 versions were released.
