The Destination For All Things Rare Whisky

Drink, Collect, Invest - Enjoy

Rare Whisky Brokerage

Given our contacts, built up over 25 years we are in a unique position to source rare, vintage, limited edition rare whiskies.

So, whether you're a whisky collector, a whisky investor or an avid whisky consumer and connoisseur, part of the mystical appeal of Scottish Single Malt Whisky is the ellusive nature of old and rare limited editions.

With ever dwindling resources and significant reductions in maturing stocks held of rare whisky, tracking down these specialities can be tricky.

Whilst RW101 is not a retail site for whisky, our extensive geographical reach, leading industry contacts and network of collectors and investors globally, means we are perfectly placed to identify and source individual bottles or large collections and can also assist in liquidation and disposal of these rare stocks.

The 'right' bottle or collection of Scottish Single Malt whisky is increasingly being viewed as a viable alternative investment of choice. Our unique position in the market enables us to combine specialist valuation and investment tracking (so you can make discerning choices about what to buy .... and what not to buy), with the contacts to help you source it.

Selling Your Collection Couldn't be Easier

Once your collection has been valued, we market it on your behalf to a global panel of buyers. The agreed value is the agreed value, cheeky offers are never accepted. Getting the valuation right up-front is what matters. Collections or part collections are sold in one go - there's no risk of an unsold auction lot having to be sent back to you.

The minimum value of any one transaction is £10,000.

Some collections are not suitable to be brokered, in these cases we may politely pass the opportunity to others.

Needless to say we take the use of data very seriously, therefore your details will not be passed on or sold. We will use your details to let you know if something comes in for which you have registered an interest... Let RW101 do the searching for you.

Finding the Right Collection for you

If you're looking to buy rare whisky, whatever the motivation, we are in a position to help. From old blends to collectable malts through contemporary Japanese, we come across it all. With a minimum value of £10,000 some of the collections we have brokered are exceptional ways to start a meaningful collection, create a leading cellar for consumption or simply stock up for the future.


Brokering a collection of bottles (we also broker casks)  can be an exceptionally quick and cost effective means of either acquiring or selling a significant volume/value of whisky. Our connections both within and external to the Scotch Whisky industry give us a leading edge to provide a seamless transaction.

Our proprietary methodology and unique data set creates total clarity and transparency delivering the same fair valuation for both seller and buyer.

Our fees for this service are dependent upon the value of the collection/bottle/cask(s) being bought or sold but there's nothing to pay up-front and there's no need to send us your bottles in the post either.


Our expertise in this area ensures you can trade with confidence and we can also assist with stock pick up, delivery and/or warehousing as required.

Whatever requirements you may have, Rare Whisky 101 are uniquely positioned to assist. 

Even if you're not buying or selling right at this moment, please feel welcome to either call us or email for a confidential conversation about how we may assist.
