Alcoholic Gifts
2.1 Under the Licensing Act of 1964 (UK) and 1976 (Scotland) it is an offence for any person under 18 years to buy, or attempt to buy, alcoholic liquor. It is an offence under Sections 32 and 33 of the Intoxicating Liquor Act 1988 (Ireland) for any person under 18 to buy, or attempt to buy, intoxicating liquor. It is an offence under Licensing (Northern Ireland) Order 1990 for any person under 18 to buy, or attempt to buy, intoxicating liquor.

2.2 Alcoholic gifts for delivery outside our local delivery area are distributed direct from store for next day delivery.

2.3 We use an outside courier to deliver our goods outside of our local delivery area. All orders placed will be despatched and delivered Monday to Friday during working hours (8am to 6pm). Unfortunately, we are currently unable to specify what time goods will be delivered. Therefore we recommend to use business addresses, or private addresses where there will be someone to sign for the goods during our delivery hours.

The carrier will attempt to deliver the product 2 times, after which the intended recipient will be responsible for making arrangements with the carrier for delivery of the products. The carrier will return your order to Dillies, usually within 7 days following the 2 attempts, if it has not been collected or a suitable redelivery agreed with the carrier. If the order subsequently needs to be despatched again either to the original address or an alternative address then this would be at the expense of the person who placed the original order.

Please note that we will always require that the packages are signed for by an adult due to the nature of the products we sell.

2.4 Due to the nature of the products we sell, we require that they are signed for by an adult upon delivery. We cannot accept any instructions to leave the goods in any location, however secure, without being signed for. As a consequence, we prefer that delivery is chosen such that the named recipient is available to receive the goods. If you need to issue special delivery instructions for an order, please contact us on 01434 606045 and place the order by phone.
