Do I need a licence to sell alcohol ‘miniatures’ online?
Hi I’ve recently set up the website http://www.ilovewales.com and as part of the ‘wedding favours’ section I’d like to sell miniature bottles of Welsh Whiskey. I have no plans to sell full size bottles at the moment. Does anyone know if I’d need a licence to sell miniatures? I’ve had a look on the this website first and have seen some articles that suggest selling any alcohol on the internet seems to be a bit of a grey area! Thanks for any advice Ben
Yes, you need a liquor licence. You’ll also need special arrangements upon delivery to show that you’ve done your utmost to ensure delivery of the ordered alcohol to a grown-up. A warranty in your terms regarding age of buyer >18 years is also recommended.
