WAIKIKI, Hawaii (April 2, 2015) — Looking to stock up on high-end alcohol? People in Waikiki and nearby areas will have a chance to bid on hundreds of bottles of wines and spirits Wednesday, April 8, when all the inventory of Posh Liquor will be sold at auction.
“Posh Liquor had a reputation for carrying one of the state’s largest selections, and its inventory included many unique and very high end products. Sadly, it has been forced to close, and all of the inventory will be sold with no minimum bids or reserves,” said John John Genovese, co-founder of Malama Auctions, which will handle the auction. “Posh’s clientele over the last decade included not only locals, but visitors from the mainland, Canada, Australia and Europe. Many would remember Posh and return during subsequent visits,” he said.
The inventory includes such hard-to-find brands as Glenlivet 25 Year Single Malt Scotch, Jameson Gold Reserve, Milagro Tequila Romance and others. Also selling will be fine cognacs, including Camus Jubilee (originally priced at $1,250 per bottle) and Hardy Diamond (originally priced at $1,300).
The auction will also include rare wines from such winemakers as Penfolds, Buccella, Dom Perignon, Husic Vineyards and numerous others.
“Some of these will sell individually and others by the case. Details are being worked out now, but the auction will include products from a broad spectrum of original price points. With everything selling with no reserves, it’s likely that some bidders will have opportunities for some great bargains,” said Genovese. Also selling will be related products making up the store’s inventory.
He noted that because of legal restrictions, alcohol sales are open only to individuals purchasing for personal use within Hawaii.
The auction will begin at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 8, at the store, at 159 Kaiulani Avenue, Honolulu. Details are available at www.malamaauctions.com or by calling 808-634-2300.
