If you've found an old bottle of whisky, rum, cognac or wine in a dank old basement, it might be worth something. Below is a list of sites that might be interested brokering the sale of the product or offering an appraisal.
1. You will need to provide a clear photograph of the product to these sites if you want to get their attention. Don't waste their time otherwise.
2. If the bottle has been opened an partially consumed, it's not worth anything.
3. Blended whiskies like Crown Royal, Seagrams VO and Jack Daniels are not worth much, if anything - even if they are really old.
4. The only Canadian whiskies that may have value are pre World War II stuff and possibly some old (1950s) products that are no longer produced.
