Rusty Barrel Spirits Safe Delivery Procedure

Rusty Barrel Spirits handles deliveries in accordance with the following scenarios:

Person in attendance at Delivery Address

  • If the person at the address is judged to be under 25 years of age, proof of age including photo identification will be requested.
  • If suitable proof of age identification cannot be produced, that person will be advised that the parcel will be carded to a Post Office or Courier depot where the article can be collected on the production  of suitable proof of age ID (Photo ID). A delivery notification card will be provided for this purpose.
  • If there are persons at the address who cannot provide proof of age ID and the parcel contains a “Delivery Instruction” providing the authority to leave the article, the “Delivery Instruction” is not to be followed. In these circumstances the article will be carded to the nearest Post Office.

No-one in attendance at Delivery Address

  • Delivery will be attempted by knocking on the door or ringing the doorbell and waiting a short time for the customer to respond.
  • If there is no-one in attendance at the address, the parcel will be carded to the nearest Post Office or Courier depot as per standard carding procedures.
  • If the parcel does contains a “Delivery Instruction" providing authority to leave the parcel at the address, we are unable to follow that instruction for 2 reasons.  1. We believe it is not responsible service of alcohol to leave alcohol where minors might access it. 2. Often parcel from Rusty Barrel Spirits contains valuable items and leaving parcels unattended makes insurance of the parcel invalid.
  • Ordinary parcels containing alcohol are not permitted to be safe dropped. If no-one is in attendance the parcel will be carded to the nearest Post Office or Courier depot as per the standard carding procedure.

Delivery is returned to Rusty Barrel Spirits (RTS)

  • Where the customer is at fault and the package is returned (e.g. you entered an incorrect address on your order), you (the customer) will be refunded immediately, less all shipping fees including the return shipping fee.
  • You may elect for us resend the parcel by repaying the shipping fee.
  • If Rusty Barrel Spirits is at fault for the package return, then we will cover this fee.
  • As there is no insurance option for RTS parcels, you must be take great care to wrap and pack the returned items so they are not damaged in transit.
  • If the returned parcel is damaged in transit, you will be responsible for paying to replace the damaged item.

Responsible Service of Alcohol Delivery

Whilst the “Delivery Instructions” will be observed in most instances, when it is determined that following the “Delivery Instruction” may create a risk of a minor under the age of 18 gaining access to the parcel ie. children sighted on premises etc, the article will not be left in accordance with the “Delivery Instruction” but carded to the nearest Post Office or courier depot for collection.
