Mackies Ancient Brand

Postby Omar60618 » Sat Jul 16, 2016 7:45 pm

Acquired a vintage bottle of Mackies Ancient blend. After some research I've found its a very rare hard to come by bottle. Thinking of sending it to online whiskey auctions. They are estimating it to sell for 2500 - 3000 pounds. I live in Chicago and and trying to find a local collector that might have av interest. Any feedback or suggestions when dealing with an auction house.

Better to sell it with an EU whisky auction house.
Prices in the US for this type of bottle are 20-25% lower, based on the previous results of whisky auctions in US and EU.
Simply ship the bottle to the selected auction house and they will transfer the money afterwards...

Wow - They sound a little "over-eager" on the bidding they hope to obtain for your bottle, I mean they aren't exactly Christie's or Bonhams !
Their only sale on one of these with the box, only took in £1,850.00 (2/3 what they quoted you)...roughly $2100 USD

Bonhams on the other hand sold one right here in the USA in 2015 for $3600....sometime it pay's to sell through a more reputable auction house.

Wish you luck though!
