can anyone sugest how to sell this (not ebay)
Therefore, I would suggest Sukinder from The Whisky Exchange, Wayne from Whisky-Online (Blackpool), Richard from Parkers Whisky in Banff, Gordon and MacPhail in Elgin or Keir from Royal Mile Whiskies in Edinburgh.
The only whiskyauction house worth its salt is McTears in Glasgow.
Whats the issue with ebay?
I live in Inverness Scotland therefore it should not be much if a problem to contact Gordon Mc Phail or McTears. I have tried to sell it on Ebay and it has been taken off the site. I had an offer once on ebay at the price range I am looking for but the buyer wanted me to take it to Edinburgh and leave it with their friend who would meet me there.It was then to go to America I could not manage to do this.I might try Ebay one more time.
In answer of your question for selling your Macallan Lallique, I can tell you that I am interested in buying this whisky. Can you tell me if it's still available and the selling-price?
You can answer me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Greetings Mr. Joop
I was fortunate enough to taste the 50 at a tasting event. It was very good.
I do not want to be nosey...actually, I do want to be nosey and be crass enough to ask if you might tell me how much you received for your bottle of Macallan 50 y Lalique. I would like to sell one of my bottle and am not sure what they are actually being sold for and not just what people are pricing them at.
No hard feeling if you do not wish to share.
A shop owner has one for sale for 17,000 GBP. Apparently, he wants to keep the bottle so that is why the price is so high. If he wants to keep it, then why put it up for sale? He wanted to buy another one but was not willing to pay 10,000 GBP (which would leave him, potentially with a 7000 GBP profit). I am not a business person, but I thought that sounded like a reasonable profit. He did not.
Mine is still for sale but there is no hurry.
Therefore the price tag of £17,000 would have to include close to £2550 in tax which goes straight to the government. Further the fact he has set the price at £17,000 so he does not sell it probably means he cannot sell it for that.
A price tag like this is more often than not for show in a shop.
He too possibly could sell a bottle for 10,000 but at current rates the tax take would be £1500 so actual price is 8,500 and next year the tax rate goes up to 17.5% so that needs to be taken into consideration incase he does not sell it till next year. He'd like to make a few quid also so don't expect anything over 7000 from a retailer.
The above seller was blessed to find someone willing to pay him close to retail prices.
£7,000 - any offers?
Also, anyone have any ideas on what these are going for in private sales? I haven't been able to find any auction results to use as a guide. The above post suggests maybe $12-13k?
As to how to sell, I agree with you that ebay is not the way to go. Contact whisky clubs and tasting groups in your area or around the country. Some members might be interested.
Hope this helps.
I have one I'm going to sell, but don't want to open it to get the # if there isn't one.
As far as I can see, there is nothing other than the bottle number. Etched on the bottom of each bottle is the number out of 470. I have bottles 85, 343 and 345.
I am looking for one. Does anybody have one for sale?
pm me if you wish
Have you seen what the Macallan 50 y in Lalique is going for now at TWE?
17,500 GBP (incl VAT)
about $27,700 CDN
14,583.33 GBP (ex VAT)
about 23,100 CDN
Of the bottles in the Lalique lineup to date, I still think the first one is the most beautiful. Tastes great, too. Sorry not to be able to comment on the flavour of the others.
I continue to follow the price of the Macallan 50 year in Lalique crystal, the first of the Six Pillars, representing "Exceptional Oak Casks", which was released in 2005. The occasional whisky shop that posts a bottle for sale is still listing it in the over £30,000.00 range.

Some say no one is buying it and the shops just like to have one for display. I am not in the marketing business, but this seems a poor marketing strategy to me. I could be wrong.
I desperately need to buy a bottle of Macallan Lalique 50 years. As I`ve read here, some of you have this rare item and maybe eager to sell it for a reasonable price.
If it`s true I`m ready to discuss the details.

This I am afraid just about sums up everything that is wrong with the whisky world at the moment. People are more interested in buying for investment purposes than drinking and enjoying which is what it was intended for.
