ABOUT

Good Bottle Auctions LLC is a new type of auction experience. We are the first in the state of Connecticut to obtain a permit to sell Whiskey, Wine, and collectable spirits at live and online auction. We are the safe and legal way to buy and sell hard to find, rare, and valuable bottles on the secondary market. Partners Tom Selmont and Ryan Brechlin bring a combined 30 years of auction experience to this new and exciting auction marketplace.

Our process is simple. If you would like to sell, let’s start a conversation about your collection. Contact us here for more information.

If you would like to buy, then browse the auction catalog and register to bid. You can place pre-bids (confidential, up to your max amount entered) or you can bid live in-person, or live online during the auction. We live stream every sale so you can follow along.

After the auction, invoices are sent out, payments are made, and we schedule in-person pickups or shipping where available (see complete terms).

The next auction is May 31st 2024 and the catalog will be posted about 30 days prior. We also have an auction scheduled for Black Friday. Call us for more details.
