Delivery changes

Good news – and not so good news!

First the good news. In fact, it’s great news. We have a new courier. Welcome APC Overnight.

The service of our last courier UKMail has become progressively worse. Their price was competitive but we couldn’t go into the Christmas rush with this standard of service.

APC recognise us as a growing company they can work with for many years to come and we feel the same about them.

We know their service will be better – they manually handle glass – but it’s more expensive so we have to adjust our delivery charges.

Our Standard Delivery remains at £5.99, so most customers are not affected.

Our free delivery threshold has been raised to £99.

Our Premium service remains £9.99 and lets you choose next day or a specific date but no longer includes AM/PM options.

We have a new Morning Premium Service, but the price is higher. Sorry. This is now £12.99 to ensure your order is delivered before noon. And it will be.

Saturday deliveries are possible in an emergency but for this we have to charge £29.99. We know its expensive but APC have a high success rate. Other couriers offer Saturday service but – frankly – don’t deliver.

Most customers order in good time and opt for a ‘leave safe’ option such as a garage or with a neighbour for weekday delivery. Most of our customers will not be affected by the changes, but all will benefit from a more reliable courier who handles your goods with care.

Please send us your feedback on the new delivery service.

Carl Jung wines

We are still out of stock of some Carl Jung wines. We ordered it long ago and it should have been here by now but the producers have been upgrading their facilities and hit snags. We hope it will be here by the end of next week. Please accept our apologies for this delay.

Bernard Blonde now available

We have a new Bernard beer in stock.

It’s a lighter Blonde version of the very popular Bernard Free original.

We have a limited quantity of Blonde available on trial. We love it, but please let us know what you think.

We can swap a few bottles of Blonde in your case of Bernard Free with your next order on request.
