After the auction the successful buyer of lot 1 will be required to make direct contact with Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Ltd where the lot is being stored directly to arrange for the transfer of the lot they have purchased to a private bond account if they already have an existing account with the warehouse.

UK based Revenue Traders who have not been granted WOWGR (Warehousekeepers and Owners of Warehoused Goods Regulations) status by HMRC are not able to legally items held in bond and should not, therefore, bid on these lots, without a duly appointed representative.

If they are a revenue trader outside the UK, they will need to have a Duty Representative in the UK (the Duty Rep would be registered with HMRC and there is usually an annual charge for their services).

Please note that liability for loss and damage on items in bond passes to the buyer upon the fall of the hammer.

Alcohols are catalogued as accurately as possible at the time of going to print. However, purchasers must take into consideration the natural variations and conditions of cases, labels, ullages, corks and wines. Lyon & Turnbull Ltd. are unable to accept returns.

All item descriptions, dimensions and estimates are provided for guidance only. It is the buyer’s responsibility to inspect all lots prior to bidding to ensure that the condition is to their satisfaction. Our specialists will be happy to prepare condition reports and additional images. These are for guidance only and all lots are sold ‘as found’, as per our Conditions of Sale.
