[AAEH] Selling Antique Liquor

This is from Paul Wagner at http://www.allexperts.com:

Older bottles of distilled spirits don't usually have a high resale
value, because they don't develop in the bottle the way fine wines do.
The alcohol levels protect them from almost any change.

So your gin won't be worth much to a gin lover--at least not much more
than a bottle of gin from a current producer.

But you might check with bottle collectors--they often pay more for
the bottle than a connoisseur would pay for its contents. Check out
antiquebottles.com for a place to start on that. Unfortunately, I am
an expert in beverages, not bottles!

It is illegal for private individuals to sell liquor in the USA. Ebay
gets around this restriction by demanding that all liquor bottles be
sold with a caveat that says they are being sold "not for consumption."

Alternatively, you can contact someone like Sothebys auction house,
which specializes in this kind of thing.

Hope that helps.
