About Old Liquors
Three generations of collectors
Old Liquors products are obtained at auctions across the world. They have been patiently waiting, undisturbed in a dark cellar for decades and are now ready to meet their new owners through a network of specialized distributors, retailers and fine restaurants. 'Spirits' pioneer and third-generation collector, Bay van der Bunt, whose grandfather started the collection in 1895, founded the company in 2017 in Miami after a long career in collecting and creating the world's most coveted and rarest collection of wines and spirits to be sold at retail.
To serve Old Liquors' U.S. customer base better Bay van der Bunt decided in 2020 to move the entire collection, over 10,000 bottles, from the Netherlands to South Florida, where it is held in perfect temperature controlled conditions in a Miami Foreign Trade Zone Warehouse. From Miami bottles are shipped to customers all across the U.S., to Singapore, United Kingdom, France, Germany, other European countries and around the world.

The role of Legendary Vintages Inc.Alcohol producers are generally not allowed to sell directly to consumers, but rather must sell to wholesalers or distributors, who then sell to retailers, who then sell to consumers. For years this has impacted alcohol’s digital attendance, limiting consumers to the assortment of individual brick-and-mortar shops. While wineries are reaching consumers with direct-shipping, alcohol brands, distributors, and brick-and-mortar retailers are facing resistance on the shipping front.
