In-bond goods are stored exclusive of excise duty and VAT. Octavian Wine Services Ltd. has an unrivalled reputation for bonded storage in the UK. If a wine has never left a bonded warehouse, such as Octavian, it will be deemed to have better provenance, which is desirable for auction or broking sales, not only in the UK but also overseas.
It is a misplaced assumption that all wine merchants do this, however, Cellarers pioneered the labelling of each case of wine with its owners details, i.e. name, account number and a unique identifier. Thus ensuring that each case stored is specific to its owner. The case you put in is the same case you take out – no matter how long you chose to store it for. Furthermore, rather than pooling company and customer stocks together, Justerini & Brooks’ own stock is geographically separate, located 130 miles away, ensuring there is never a case for mistaken identity.
We work with a number of specialised wine shippers to offer you a reliable, competitively-priced service. We can arrange the shipping of individual bottles or consignments of thousands of cases, providing VAT refund forms and other relevant documentation.
Cellarers provides comprehensive cellar management, with services including but not limited to annual or quarterly stock reports, detailed reports regarding UK tax liabilities on stored goods, efficient stock depot for onward export and UK brokerage for sizeable consignments and gift deliveries with personalised messaging service year round.
Your Personal Cellar is your online cellar management tool, which allows you to virtually access the wines you have stored in your Cellarers account. You are able to request valuations, deliveries, as well as adding your own tasting notes – enabling a fully personalised cellar management platform.
With our online trading desk, you are able to add wines to our broking list for sale; buying and selling to the perfect portfolio.
