We are a very small craft distillery / shop and our volumes mean we're unable at the moment to have a contract with any of the large courier services.
We ship our products out using Parcel Force at our local Post Office. We can ship a maximum of two bottles of liquid per package (rules are rules) so any orders of more than two bottles or pouches, will be sent separately.
We try to offer value to our customers and therefore we absorb some of the shipping costs and the packaging costs.
A single bottle costs £1.75 in packaging and £4.10 second class to ship, a total of £5.85, but rather than pass this on in full we charge a flat rate of £4.00 per single bottle order, £8.00 for 2 bottles, £12.00 for 3 and £16.00 for 4.
Case or 5 bottle orders are sent via DHL at a flat rate of £16.50. Party Boxes are sent via DHL at a flat rate of £14.00.
As we get bigger and our volumes increase we will take advantage of the discounts offered by the large courier services and we will, of course, pass these on to the customer.
We want to make a living from making amazing craft spirits, not on the P&P!
