We have a few bottles of old liquor and brandy.. for instance, a couple of bottles of brandy made in 1917 and bottled in 1932. Where can I find the value. these have corks with seals neverbroken..
Thanks

There is no such place.

The value is strictly dependant on what someone is willing to spend.

For someone to set a price...it's pure speculation.

There is no price guide.

Current prices can be found at a liquor store. That is what people are usually willing to spend.

Places like ebay can show you what people have spent in the past...but that is no guide to what the price may be in the future.

There isn't a big demand for old alcoholic products....the market is just way to small.

We have a bottle a half pint bottle of "Genuine Sour Mash, Old Elk brand Kentucky Straight Whiskey, bottled in Louisville, KY, by W.Whellen & Sons, copyright 1939, 101 proof - states that "this whiskey is 3-1/2 yrs old. Not sure if opened or evaporated over time. Cork in bottle, label partially deteriorated and 1/4 full. Need to know if it has any value?

If you don't have a full bottle....then the value of your product is close to $0.

For an old bottle to be worth the cost of shipping....it must be in good shape, almost full of the original liquid, and have all the tax stamps and seals intact.

IF, you would like to donate your bottle to a good cause....then send it to the Oscar Getz Museum in Bardstown Ky. They are a non profit whiskey museum in the bourbon heartland.

Keep in mind....there is a ton of good liquor on the shelves in stores currently...which severely lowers the value of really old labels...to a large degree.

Jim Beam whiskey sells for about $20 a bottle. But, you probably knew that already.

I would think that the value of Chartreuse, that old, is close to zero. It has never been very popular...especially in the US.

There is no such place to find value or appraisel of old bottlings.

Best bet is to go to your local liquor store and see what they charge for 12 yr old whiskey. That will give you the current value of whiskey.

So basically Mozilla is an expert at NO ONE having anything that's worth a dime? Where DO you get your info?n I am very sure at least a couple of those posts having a value of more than "liquor store price".

Sorry, if my opinion doesn't jibe with what you think.

Basically,...liquor isn't rare. For a bottle to be worth much more than a few hundred dollars...it needs to have a following or something to raise its value.

Blended whiskies, vodka, liqeuers, cordials...and a few others just aren't worth much.

Also, the bottle, label and contents must be pristine.

Items that might bring good money:
Rare Single Malts, Rare Straight Whiskies, Rare Congacs. Just about everything else tops out in the $200-300 range(when in great condition).

Hope this info helps.

I have a bottle of cognac that i recently was given by an old man. It came from france and could be very old. It has a wax stamp on the front saying reserve de laigon. The front says tres vielle fine cognac with napoleon in large letters and l de lalignace below. It is 40 proof I believe. It is sealed and in great condition! Can anyone help me find its value?
