Age Verification Policy
All customers must be aged 18 years or over.
If we have a doubt that you are under 18, we may make enquires about you to check that you are over 18 years of age and you expressly consent to our accessing legally held information in order to do this
Where we do not have visual contact with a customer, for example when an order is placed remotely for delivery by mail order, we will form a view as to whether or not the customer is under or over 18. Should we reasonably suspect that the customer is under the age of 18, we will not supply alcohol to that customer until we can verify their age. We may use various additional methods to assess the age of the customer, which may include contact with the customer, or by reference to information about the customer which is either in the public domain - we look at linkedin, for example - or is available through the use of commercial age verification systems and databases operated by third parties.
Such age verification may be without explicit reference back to the customer, although if appropriate we may ask a customer to supply us with evidence of their age.
