Shipping information

VAT (20%)

UK VAT is removed at checkout only if you are shipping your bottles out with the UK. At the checkout you will have 3 options;

  1. Shipping (up to 6 bottles) UK VAT will only be applied to UK shipments and Local EU VAT to EU countries we currently ship to. If you are in another country we can ship to UK VAT will be removed at checkout. E.G – USA, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong etc.
  2. Local Collection – UK VAT will be applicable!
  3. Hold for consolidation – UK VAT will be applied to customers from the UK, local EU VAT if you are within the EU, if you are in a country we can ship to the UK VAT is removed. If you are in a country we cannot ship to UK VAT will be applied!

UK Local Pick Up & On Hold Orders

If you have selected “Hold for consolidation (3 Months max)” at the checkout for past orders, we can ship up to 6 bottles via DHL in the UK for £12.

Shipping to the USA!

We can now offer shipping to certain US states. This service is carried out via a 3rd party and is legal with taxes and duties paid. This service has many variables which means the shipping cost is never constant, however, there are economies of scale; We would suggest consolidating 6-12 bottles prior to arranging a shipment to the USA.

An example price (12 bottle shipment) in January 2022 to NYC would be £250. It is worth noting that the rates will also drop in times when there are more flights between the US-UK.

At present we can ship to the following states; CALIFORNIA, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, IDAHO, LOUISIANA, NEBRASKA, NEW MEXICO, NEW YORK, OREGON, VIRGINIA, WYOMING, VERMONT, MAINE, MASSACHUSETTS, RHODE ISLAND, CONNECTICUT, NEW JERSEY, DELAWARE, MARYLAND, TEXAS, FLORIDA

EU Shipments (No UK VAT will be applied)

Unfortunately, we are no longer able to ship to a large number of EU countries. Please see the list at the bottom for countries we can ship to.

Customers will be liable to pay their local duties and customs plus associated fees upon arrival at your border. We have tried hard to create a system where this would not happen, but unfortunately, it is currently not possible.

Customers are responsible to ensure local duties and VAT are paid. Dornoch Distillery will NOT refund any orders returned to us due to unpaid duties.

Customs invoices will be generated prior to you shipment leaving Dornoch Distillery.

We have taken the decision to stop shipping to some EU countries until allowances and duty charges become clearer – we hope to have more clarity by next year!

Customs declaration (Non-EU Shipments)

Customs documents will be automatically generated. You are responsible for declaring and arranging customs/duty payments – normally DHL will contact you directly to arrange payment, so make sure you enter your email address correctly at checkout!!

Shipments returned to us due to unpaid customs duties will NOT be refunded!

Where we ship

Until we get more clarity around EU shipping regulations on Alcohol we have taken the decision to stop shipping to some EU member states. We hope to have more clarity soon!
