Delivery Information

We are currently shipping to limited counties in the EU due to issues post BREXIT.   We are looking to increase this as soon as possible.  Please see below for full details.

Carriage
We send all of our packages via Royal Mail or Parcelforce, so the delivery times are subject to Royal Mail and Parcelforce services and exclude Public/Bank Holidays, Saturdays and Sundays. The Little Whisky Shop cannot be held responsible for any delays to postal services once parcels have been dispatched.  For orders received before 1300hrs, we try to ship the order the same day where possible, but if received after that time we will ship the next working day.

Please note to help keep prices down and to help save the planet we try to recycle boxes where they are reusable.

Please ensure that someone over the age of 18 is available to sign for the delivery of the goods and the address is correct with a full postcode. Once the goods are in the possession of the Courier, The Little Whisky Shop cannot be held responsible for any delivery delays, this includes delays due to inclement weather, misrouting, incorrect delivery addresses and force majeure.

Please note if you live in the Scottish Highlands, Northern Ireland & Non-Mainland UK, your order may take longer to be delivered and will be more expensive than standard delivery.
