Champagne and wine

How can I sell 21 bottles of Champagne and wine? Online wine dealers and auctioneers don't want to know as it's not "rare" or "fine". I'm not claiming it is. But it includes 9 bottles of Sunday Times Champagne, for instance. EBay won't let private sellers sell it, and I'd need a licence to sell on Facebook or elsewhere online. I don't drink alcohol, and it's all too valuable to give away in the street. Any suggestions on how to sell it please?

    Try a "bricks and mortar" auction house.
    If you are querying your Council Tax band would you please state whether you are in England, Scotland or Wales
  • Can you put on your own Facebook timeline this question? as opposed to market place. Maybe one of your friends may want to stock up for Christmas

    Thanks. It's certainly an idea, although technically I suspect it could still be illegal as I don't have a licence.

    Thanks. I've messaged one now.

  • Could always give them as Christmas presents to friends / family. Indirectly gives you money for them by saving on gifts.

    Donate them to charity raffles.

    Know of anyone getting married, or divorced, or some other party who would appreciate it at a lower than normal price :D

    Got to ask, why have you got so much if you don't drink? Left over from an event or something?

    Okey-dokey.

  • Local independent restaurant might buy it from you. You don't need a licence as you're not selling retail. And as restaurants mark up the price quite a lot they should be able to pay you close to retail price. But they might not be willing to take only 20 mixed bottles.

    As to why: Combination of work, gifts and raffle prizes. Someone who gave some to us could end up getting them back! :)
  • So long as there are no touching messages written on the label, where's the issue?

    Cellophane scrounged from a florist, lashings of ribbon likewise or bought off ebay & you have some dashed handsome gifts ready (& easy) to go.
