You warrant that:
  • The Personal Information which you are required to provide when you register as a customer is true, accurate, current and complete in all respects; and

Age Restrictions

The UK Licencing Act 2003 states that it is against the law to sell or supply intoxicating substances to persons under 18 years of age in the UK. Davis Bell McCraith Wines is committed to upholding both their legal and social obligations as a wine and spirit retailer. For clarity, a drink containing alcohol is classified as intoxicating if it contains more than 0.5% alcohol by volume. By registering your details or placing an order you confirm that you are at least 18 years of age. If our carriers are in doubt of the age of the recipient of an order they will request some form of ID. In the event that this is not satisfied they are not permitted to leave the wine.


You agree fully to indemnify, defend and hold us, and our officers, directors, employees, agents and suppliers, harmless immediately on demand, from and against all claims, liability, losses, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, arising out of any breach of the Terms & Conditions by you or any other liabilities arising out of your use of this website, or the use by any other person accessing the website using your account and/or your Personal Information.
