Delivery location

We ask you to specify the delivery location for your order because we are legally obliged to charge VAT and duty at the prevailing rates in the country of delivery, regardless of where you may be resident.
The delivery location therefore determines the currency applicable to your order as well as the delivery charges.
Sterling prices are applicable to wines for delivery to Northern Ireland and GB, and for collection from our Crossgar shop and include VAT (20%) and duty (£21.72 per case) at the prevailing rates in the UK.*

Payment for orders for delivery to addresses in NI / UK must be settled in Sterling.

Euro prices are applicable to wines for delivery to the Republic of Ireland and include VAT (23%) and duty (24.57 per case) at the prevailing rates in ROI.*
Payment for orders for delivery to addresses in ROI must be settled in Euro.
*VAT & duty rates as at March 2008

If you live in ROI, but would like to send wine to someone in Northern Ireland or GB, you would need you to select Gt. Britain / Northern Ireland in the delivery location section, and also register yourself as a customer in this country so that we can create a sterling account for you and process your order in sterling.

If you live in NI or GB and would like to send wine to someone in the Republic of Ireland, you would need to select Rep. Of Ireland in the delivery location section, and also register yourself as a customer in this country so that we can create a Euro account for your and process your order in Euro.

If you live outside the UK and Ireland, and would like to send wine to someone in either of these countries, simply select the relevant country where the wine is to be delivered, register yourself as a customer in the same country as the delivery location, and the relevant currency and delivery charges will be applied.

You can register and set up accounts in both Gt. Britain / Northern Ireland as well as Rep. of Ireland, using the same password for both areas.
