Antique Spirits

Our collection of Antique Spirits offers a fascinating glimpse into the past, featuring bottles from famous brands such as Jim Beam and Benedictine to forgotten historic producers lost in the mists of time.

With some of the collection dating back to the 1920s, this is a chance for serious collectors or those who are simply curious about these old bottlings to explore and own a piece of spirit history.

The vast majority of these spirits are fully drinkable, allowing connoisseurs to determine how famous brands have changed over time, and cocktail enthusiasts to create the most authentic period drinks possible.

Most bottles are in truly excellent condition considering their age, with intact seals and clean, clear labels. Some of course have suffered minor damage over their long lives and if this is the case we have endeavoured to let you know the exact condition.

Of course these are very much one-off products, and many are highly sought-after and increasingly valuable. We’ll be adding new bottles to the site as we discover them, so keep checking back for new arrivals. If you would like more details about a particular bottle, or would like us to try to source a specific one for you, do let us know.

If you are looking to add a particular bottle to your collection or you’re after a unique and intriguing gift, delve into our substantial range of Antique Spirits and discover the drinks of times past.
