The courier or carrier and delivery time will vary depending on which State we are shipping to.

Please be aware that Florida and Texas currently have 7-9 day lead times for delivery and tracking is not available for these two States.

The delivery address must have someone over 21 years of age to sign for the shipment, so we cannot use PO boxes. We also cannot send to schools or universities. Couriers occasionally experience difficulty with military bases.

Each single shipment is deemed to be 1 box and cannot exceed 10 bottles shipment. After the bottle limit of 10 has been reached, each new shipment will start at £70.00 for the first bottle. Please note that multi box shipments can be dispatched but may have to be within a few days of each other.

Your shipping fees include all US taxes and FDA fees where applicable but exclude customs charges. As of 4th March 2021 the the US Whisky tariff of 25% on all Single Malt Scotch and Northern Irish Whiskey has been suspended however, please note shipments to the US over the value of $2500 will attract an additional Customs Formal Clearance charge of £130 per shipment levied by US Customs. You will be charged for this when you request a quote. Additional restrictions may apply to US shipping, where this is the case you will be advised in advance on your custom quote.

Prices are £70.00 for the first bottle in a shipment and £10.00 for each bottle up to the 10th bottle. If you have more than this then you would be charged for another shipment(s) depending on how many bottles overall you have and wish to ship out.

See below for total costs, i.e shipping 2 bottles is £80 for both bottles.

CUSTOMS DUTIES AND TAX

Unfortunately,The Rare Whisky Shophas no control over duties and tax charges customs will collect when importing alcohol. If you live within the European Union, the good news is that the price you see is the price you pay. If you live outwith the European Union your country of residence may charge you duty and tax on your imported alcohol. You are responsible to pay this at your local customs office or maybe your courier will take payment upon delivery. Under no circumstances will the courier deliver your shipment without taking this payment. If you refuse to pay then the shipment will be returned to the depot where they will hold it for a maximum of 7 days and then the shipment will be destroyed by customs, or returned to sender. If the shipment is destroyed, The Rare Whisky Shop will not be liable to provide a refund. We will however deduct our fees for the return from your refund only if the item is returned to sender. By purchasing from us you agree to the delivery conditions set out regarding duty and taxation charges.

Deliveries to schools, colleges, PO boxes, military bases and prisons are not permitted.
