In Ireland, it is illegal to sell alcohol to anyone under 18 years of age. Our acceptance of any order (wine or a hamper containing alcohol) is based on the purchaser being at least 18 years old.
Proof of age when we're delivering
When we're delivering wine we may request proof of age. So, to ensure hassle-free delivery, please help us out by:
- Making sure an adult can accept delivery of your order whether it's your home or office address.
- Not taking any offence if we ask for ID
And if there's an issue?
If there is an issue with your delivery, please contact us and we will work to get it resolved. We sincerely apologise for any under-estimation of age that may occur during a delivery, however flattering this may be to the recipient!
Visit DrinkAware.ie for the facts on under-age drinking.
