The Legality of Selling Alcohol Online

Postby jimipresley » Mon Mar 05, 2018 01:32

I'm in dire financial straits at the moment, and am looking to sell something to make ends meet. I refuse to be a skinflint and put my coat hangers and used underwear up for auction on Facebook, but I do have two bottles of pretty expensive whisky that I'm looking to sell.

My question: Is it illegal to sell liquor online, on social media sites, if you're not a licensed dealer? I really don't need any trouble with The Man.

Many thanks for any informed responses. :bow:

You’re fine. I’m sure the cops have bigger fish to fry...
