As long as you order in good time your goods will reach you by Christmas.
However, Christmas is the busiest time of the year for couriers.
Although we ship order as fast as we receive them, there could be a delay in your parcel reaching you for reasons outside our control and outside the control of the courier.
Inclement weather and heavy traffic are the common culprits which can lead to vehicle breakdown, traffic jams and accidents that mean parcels may be delivered later than usual.
We recommend that you place your order as soon as you can, that you keep a check on your emails for updates from us and from the courier and that you contact us if you do not receive your goods within 48 hours of receiving our shipping notice.
Please bear in mind the effects of COVID-19 are causing some delays in the courier network.

Unfortunately we cannot ship goods abroad at the moment but hope to be able to do so in future.
Some of our customers are recovering alcoholics and enjoy our drinks without any harmful effects. However some prefer to avoid alcohol-free wine and beer for fear of triggering a relapse. It’s an individual choice.
However, our drinks are not suitable for alcoholics who are currently being treated for their condition with drugs such as Disulfiram which are designed to cause an unpleasant reaction to any amount of alcohol. If you want to buy alcohol-free drinks as a gift for an alcoholic, it’s best to check first.
