Service Offered


Our new online service provides an instant valuation on individual full sealed bottles of Single Malt Scotch Whisky and Japanese Whisky.

A world first - it provides collectors and investors with detailed intelligence on both their existing rare whisky collections and bottles which are under consideration for sale or purchase

Types of valuation

There are two types of valuation available – basic and advanced. Based on a credit system of £2.40 per credit, users are required to pay 1 credit for a basic valuation and 2 credits for an advanced valuation. Credits can be purchased in bundles to reduce the cost per valuation.

A basic valuation contains information on the most recently recorded sale price and sale date for a specific bottle. An advanced valuation provides collectors and investors with a more detailed report including data on sale history, bottle performance and distillery dynamics.

Once a valuation has been requested and paid for, a report is generated and issued via email within minutes.

Extensive digital library

RW101 has developed the new service based on an extensive digital library of thousands of bottles. Having tracked every bottle sold at UK auctions over the past 12 years, the business now offers the world’s first, only and most comprehensive online single malt Scotch & Japanese whisky dataset covering {{numberOfSales}} price records across {{numberOfBottles}} different bottle types.

Each valuation is based on the actual recorded UK auction sale values and displays precisely what each selected bottle has previously sold for since 2008. All values are ‘hammer’ prices so they don’t include any fees or charges associated with an auction sale. The database is continually updated to provide the most up to date values available, based on single malt Scotch whisky bought and sold at auction in the UK.

We’re really excited by the potential of these new services. Using our extensive database of whisky bought and sold at auction over 12 years, we have been able to develop the UK’s only online valuation service. With whisky collecting and investment increasing in popularity, particularly among passion investors, our service should make it much easier for whisky connoisseurs, collectors and investors, to make informed decisions on the right time to buy or sell. We’re also hopeful that we’ll be able to unearth some hidden treasures from members of the public who have been holding on to old bottles of rare old single malt for years without realising its value!

We know distillers, brand owners, bar owners and retailers find this service useful too allowing them to price products accurately in an ever changing, dynamic market place.
