    Posting bottle of whisky 9th Aug 18 at 5:44 PM
    I need to get a bottle of whisky from Bristol to an auction house in Glasgow.

    Does anybody know a post/courier/ other service who will do this with the bottle insured - for 3500.00?

    Unfortunately it's not my bottle. It belongs to an elderly neighbout so I'm trying to get the maximum I can for it (otherwise I would have taken it up there in person).

    Any suggestions?

    If, as I suspect the Glasgow auction site is a specialist Whiskey seller, they should be able to recommend an insured service, and give recommendations as to how they require it to be sent.

    If it isn't a specialist whiskey auction seller, I'd humbly suggest that there are 1 or 2 out there and that they perhaps they would be more suited to your needs.

    It is a specialist & they can provide a service.

    However, the risk will lie fully with me and there is no loss/breakage cover.

    Apparently Parcelforce will cover it but their maximum insurance is 2,500.

    I'm starting to think I might have to spend a weekend driving to & from Scotland.
