What do we need?

To get started we need as much detail as you can provide about your item(s). Try and include the following information:

Distillery or Brand

This is usually the largest name on the bottle. For independent bottlings, please provide the name of the bottler/series too.

Age or Vintage

Age or Vintage

The age of a whisky is the age at which it was bottled. The vintage is the year it was distilled and is usually stated on limited edition or single cask expressions.

Volume & Strength

Volume & Strength

Volume is usually provided in ml, cl, or litres, but older bottles may have fl. oz. Strength is usually measured in ABV or % VOL, but can be in proof too.



Pictures of your item can make identifying the bottle much simpler. Please include a good image of the bottle, clearly showing the label and the bottle closure.
