I have contacted a number of the major online whisky retailers who buy rare and limited edition bottles and some have expressed an interest in come of my collection.
I'd be grateful for any advice on what mark up they seek to achieve and thus what a fair asking price is. For example, I have 5 bottles of a limited edition that is listed as out of stock on many sites at £200. What would be a fair price for me to ask for/for them to offer? I have seen it at auction for c£130 (but obviously I'd get 10-20% less).
Also how does the mark up vary with price? Do retailers seek to achieve a similar mark up on a £50 bottle as a £500 bottle.
Any thoughts much appreciated.
