Our International Wine & Spirit Department holds approximately 18 sales a year in the UK, US and Hong Kong.

The department is headed by Master of Wine, Richard Harvey. The London team also includes experienced specialists Harriet Joll, Jerome Fouillade, Tim Deacon and Felix Dallas with Whisky Specialist, Martin Green, based in Edinburgh.

The Hong Kong team is led by Daniel Lam alongside specialist Christopher Pong, and Christine Ballard is the specialist in San Francisco. All our specialists offer professional, friendly and independent advice on both selling and buying wine.

Our sales offer a wide range of classed-growth Bordeaux, Domaine bottled Burgundy, Champagne, Rhone and Port as well as highly regarded wines from Italy, Spain, California and Australia. A case of Romanée-Conti 1988 was sold in March 2019 for £246,000.

Whisky Sales are held in Edinburgh and Hong Kong. We achieved a world record price for a bottle of Whisky three times in 2018, culminating in the sale of the 1926 Macallan 60-Year-Old Valerio Adami for £858,750 in Edinburgh in October. Bonhams also holds the world record for a bottle of Japanese Whisky of HKD 2,695,000 (£270,000) for a Yamazaki-50 year old.

Wines and spirits offered for sale are inspected carefully prior to cataloging and are stored under temperature-controlled conditions in specialist warehousing. We arrange packing of cellars and collection and shipping from clients'premises.
