Current delivery situation

UK deliveries

All our couriers are operating as normal and we aim to process your order within 1-2 days of it being placed. There may be occasional delays with Royal Mail deliveries using our 'standard UK delivery' service due to additional Covid restrictions operating at depots. This doesn't impact our next day service at all.

EU orders temporarily suspended

Please note that we have currently suspended the shipping of goods to customers within the EU due to complications and additional costs for VAT and customs duties that were implemented after 31st December 2020. We will be reviewing this situation regularly and hope that we can switch the service back on again later in the year.

If you are considering ordering some products from us for delivery to an address in an EU country, please do get in touch with us on 01386 853331 or enquiries@cotswoldtrading.com and we can see if we can help you further.

Buying Alcohol Products Online

In the UK it is illegal for:

  • any person under the age of 18 to buy (or attempt to buy) alcohol for themselves or for any other person under the age of 18; and
  • an adult to buy (or attempt to buy) alcohol for any person under the age of 18

You may only purchase an alcoholic beverage from us if you are:

  • at least 18 years old
  • not buying that product for any person or persons under the age of 18

If a customer selects an item containing alcohol as part of their online purchase, then a box within the checkout process must be ticked to confirm they are 18 or over. In addition, any package containing an alcoholic product will be shipped on a signed-for service which must be accepted at the point of delivery by a person aged 18 or over. Proof of ID may be requested upon delivery of that product or at the point of collection in store where we operate a Challenge 25 Policy.

Cotswold Trading reserves the right not to sell or deliver any age-restricted product to anyone who is, or appears to be, under the age of 18.

Alcoholic beverages are able to be delivered to UK addresses only. These products are excluded from all promotions and discounts, both in store or online.
