• What are the age restrictions for online orders?
Due to UK licensing laws, alcohol can only be sold to persons aged 18 or over. By ordering from the Fyne Ales online shop, you confirm you are at least 18 years old and that the intended recipient of the order is also at least 18 years old.

Our delivery partner, DHL, may require the recipient to show proof of age at the point of delivery. Failure to produce proof of age may result in delivery being cancelled and any costs of attempted redelivery will fall on the purchaser.

• How much does shipping cost?
£2.99 - Merchandise and light orders (not including beer) via Royal Mail.

£5.00 - Up to 12 x 330ml or 500ml bottles of beer, up to 6 x 750ml bottles of beer, or per two mini-casks (5 litres) via DHL Express service.

• Do I need to order in case or multiples of 12 bottles?
In order to achieve maximum cost efficiency for delivery, we recommend ordering beer in multiples of 12 bottles (330ml, 500ml).

Orders of less than 12 x 330ml or 500ml bottles will still be charged at the standard £5.00 shipping rate. Orders of 13-24 units will incur two shipping charges, one per case (e.g 13 bottles = £10.00 shipping, 24 bottles = £10.00 shipping).

For 750ml bottles, the standard shipping charge includes up to six units.

For 5 litre mini casks, the standard shipping charge includes up to two units.

• When will my order be dispatched?
We endeavour to dispatch orders placed before 9.30am, Monday-Friday the same day.

Orders placed after 9.30am or on Saturday/Sunday will be dispatched the next working day.

• How long does shipping take?
Orders are shipped via DHL from our brewery in Argyll, Scotland using the Express service, however due to our location we estimate delivery takes 2-3 days from date of dispatch to mainland UK addresses.

Orders to highland and island addresses may take substantially longer due to routing. Please contact us if you have specific requirements or concerns about distance shipping.

• When will my order be delivered?
Monday to Friday between 8:00 and 18:00. If you are not at home when the courier tried to deliver your parcel, you will find a missed delivery note in your mailbox.

On this note you will see where you can pick up your parcel. You can also request a second delivery attempt at the same address.

Use the link provided in your dispatch email to make changes to your delivery directly with DHL.

• Can I track my order?
