All tracking numbers are sent via email or text once your order has been booked with the courier, please note these may not show on the courier system straight away. Please send us an email or give us a call for further details on tracking.

Unfortunately, we do not currently ship to PO boxes. If we notice your address is for a PO Box, we will contact you to either arrange an alternative address or issue a refund.

Who is the courier?

We use various couriers.

DHL Parcel, DHL Express, Royal Mail, and local private couriers for all AB postcodes.

How will I receive my invoice?

Your invoice will be attached to the confirmation email you receive having purchasing your item. We do not send printed invoices.

Do I have to sign for my parcel?

Due to COVID-19, all deliveries are contactless.

What happens if I am not in to receive my parcel?

If you are unable to personally receive and sign for your parcel then a card will be posted by the courier explaining where and when the parcel has been taken. This may be with a neighbour or with your local depot. For local deliveries, if you are not in and there is no designated safe place a redelivery charge may be applied.

Accuracy of Address Details

The customer will be responsible for providing accurate contact and address details for all orders. Should we incur any cost for returns or extra charges billed to us by couriers due to incorrect information, these charges will need to be paid before re-delivery.

Age restriction

It is against the law to sell gin, wine, or beer to anyone who isn't 18 years old or over. By placing an order, you confirm that you are at least 18 years old. If you are buying a gin, wine, or beer as a gift - the recipient must also be over 18 years old.
If our couriers are in any doubt about the age of the recipient on delivery, they will request some form of ID. If the person receiving the alcohol is unable to produce the appropriate ID, unfortunately, our couriers will be unable to leave the gin, wine, or beer.

Please note for recipients receiving orders to the USA all customers need, to be over the age of 21.

Sorry to have to state the obvious, but once the gin, wine, or beer has been delivered, according to your original delivery instructions, it becomes the recipient's responsibility.
