How We Ship Our Bottles

Once a bottle is purchased via our online shop, it is packaged using specialist packing materials to ensure safe transport and delivery.

Inflatable Bottle Jackets

The bottles are placed into inflated bottle jackets, which are ideal for the shipment of fragile glass bottles and are widely used in the spirits industry.

Double Boxed

The bottle, inside the jacket, is then placed in a bottle box and then in a larger cardboard box which is cushioned with specialist void fill.

Our packing procedures ensure maximum protection for your bottle.

Door to Door tracking

Bottles bound for the United States are shipped via World Package Logistics.

Upon dispatch, you will receive a tracking number so that you can keep an eye on your shipment.

Shipping Protection

At checkout you will have the option to purchase shipping protection.

This covers loss and breakage but does not cover capsule leakage. Please note that we cannot guarantee cover for bottles with wax capsules.

Tax and Import FAQ's

VAT Information

VAT information can be found at the bottom of each bottle listing.

Many of the bottles on our shop are being sold on behalf of private individuals and therefore are not subject to VAT. 

Any bottles owned by Mark Littler Limited are subject to VAT, and this is included in the list price. 

VAT can be removed from bottles for export. Please email us prior to checking out.

In containers each holding not over 4 liters: $1.99/pf, liter

In containers each holding over 4 liters: $2.04/pf, liter
