Our Auctions are held monthly and we will email registered users to let them know the Auction has gone live. Once you are on the site you can search our Auction Lots; if you are looking for a specific bottle of whisky you can use our filters to help you find it.
Select a Lot, read the description and take a good look at the pictures. You can also browse previous Auctions to see what similar items might have sold for.
Simply enter your maximum bid in the bid amount box and confirm.
You will instantly see if you are winning the Lot. Once your maximum bid is placed, if a bid is made by another user, Speyside Whisky Auctions will automatically increase the bid incrementally until it reaches your maximum bid amount.

The Auctions end at 20:00 GMT on the dates specified. We would encourage users not to wait until the last second to place bids as we use ‘anti-sniping’ features which will extend the auction end time by 10 minutes if a bid is placed within the last five minutes of the Auction.

Buyer’s commission of 10% is added to the hammer price of all Lots.

For customers within the UK, VAT will be added to all fees and commission. VAT is not added to the hammer price. Please read our T&Cs for all information regarding VAT.
