About Old Liquors
From modest beginnings in 1895, the Old Liquors Brand today stands for the world’s most extensive and exclusive collection of 18th and 19th century Cognac, Armagnac, Madeira, Port, Whisky and other rare collectible spirits. What started out as a passion, developed into a business in 2012. Old Liquors procures its stock from major auction houses, amassing thousands of bottles per year in bulk lots. Old Liquors is selling its collection online, through private and retail channels.

A shortage of Cognac must be taken seriously into account in the USA and China spirits market. In this respect, reference is made to China, which shows a high preference for older and exclusive Cognacs. Consequently, higher prices can be obtained on the Chinese market which are three times higher than in the United States. A larger selection cannot be easily offered, because Cognac must be stored for many years and the consumption exceeds the production.

The American and Chinese markets are showing constant growth. However, it turned out that the brand 'Hennessy' reduced their stocks on the market. Though that phenomenon has an age statement. This major Cognac producer keeps a larger share of its production behind in its cellars, like Old liquors does, to bring these stocks to the market later at a higher price.
