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
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 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.
