Tips for Online Whisky Auctions

Whisky auctions are highly popular events with many different parties involved. Nowadays, there are huge numbers of live whisky auctions taking place all over the world. At Auction Your Cask, we hold regular whisky auctions, which give interested buyers and sellers the opportunity to meet and trade high-quality whisky casks on a trusted platform.

In this post, the team at Auction Your Cask offers a few great tips for anyone thinking about getting involved in online whisky auctions. To learn more, have a read of the blog below. 

Do Your Own Research

One of the most important tips we can give you is to do your own extensive research when you’re considering buying a whisky cask. Doing some value research will give you a good idea about what you should be buying, and it will help make your decision easier. Many platforms have old lots on display, so you’ll be able to use these to get an idea about pricing and what similar bottles are being priced at. 

Have a Maximum Budget in Mind

Live auctions are constantly moving events, and it’s really easy to get swept away with everything going on. But it is imperative that you have a maximum budget for everything when you’re involved in an auction. During an online whisky auction, someone might outbid you and you might find yourself suddenly partaking in a bidding war. However, you don’t want to go hundreds of pounds over your budget, so it’s vital that you remember the maximum you can put down and always have this in mind. 

Remember About Fees, Storage and Insurance

Furthermore, it’s important that you’re fully aware of each of these aspects to UK whisky auctions at Auction Your Cask. You need to consider that if you’re a new owner of a whisky cask, then you’ll have to pay for storage and insurance, as well as transport too - if required. This needs to be remembered by all buyers.
