Simply enter the required quantity on the product page in the “Qty:” section, and then click “Add to Bag”. If we have enough stock, you will see a green notification bar at the top of the webpage, which means the item has been successfully added to your bag. If we do not have enough stock, you will see a red notification bar at the top of the webpage.
There may be occasions when warehouse stock is down to the last few bottles, or we cannot fill your order due to the product being damaged. In this instance, you will be notified by phone or email to discuss replacement or refund options.
We don't process orders over the telephone. We prefer to use an online payment system, as it is a more secure transaction method and offers you a greater level of buyer protection.

Due to the nature of our goods, we do not allow Authority to Leave requests. If a request has been made at the time the order is placed, the request will be removed prior to shipping.

If you are not home at the time of delivery, a calling card will be left in your mailbox. This card will advise the next steps required to obtain delivery of your order. If you fail to make arrangements to obtain your goods within the specified timeframe on the calling card, and the items are returned to our warehouse, you will be responsible for charges incurred in re-delivering the products to you.

Q: My order is valuable. How do I know it will be delivered with care?
Each of our products, no matter the value, is inspected and handled with great care during the packing process, which first involves the bottle being inspected. Then, the bottle is encased in heavy-duty wrap before being placed into a sturdy, cardboard container. All orders are delivered with Australia Post who handle our packages manually across their network to mitigate any damage during transit.
We have carefully chosen Australia Post who has proven reliability and exceptional service to handle the delivery of our goods.
Q: Why does my bottle/box look different than it does on your website?
Products delivered may vary slightly from the image shown due to manufacturer or supplier product variations over time. If you have concerns about a product, please contact us prior to purchase, as aesthetic differences that do not involve damage will not be accepted as a valid reason for a return/refund.
Q: The bottle/serial number has been removed from my bottle. Is this a genuine product?
Decoding is the removal of identification details such as lot and bottle numbers and is quite common on high-end products exported internationally. Items are decoded prior to us receiving the goods. This product is 100% original, guaranteed and the quality of the product is in no way compromised by the decoding. The goods are legal, non-counterfeit goods sold outside normal distribution channels. What often happens, is many of these products come from sources such as small liquor suppliers around the globe who are exporting internationally. This whole process is ultimately about competition and delivering the best price to you, our customers. Our suppliers are established and trusted businesses who sell to independent licensed premises throughout the world and have been doing so for many years.
Q: How do you ensure that minors aren't making purchases?
We have strict procedures in place that are in line with our licensing and Responsible Service of Alcohol requirements. All orders placed on our website require the individual to accept Terms & Conditions that they are over the age of 18 years. Upon delivery, Australia Post also adhere to regulations that orders will not be left with persons under the age of 18 years and proof of age may be required before releasing the order.
