Customs & import duties

Products sold are subject to the Dutch taxation system. VAT, if applicable, will always be charged upon the sale of a product both within and outside the EU. We cannot deduct VAT for sales outside the EU.


Any form of import taxes, duties and associated administrative costs are to be borne by you, the buyer. As customs policies vary greatly from country to country, it is your responsibility to contact your local customs department for further information.

For some products sold on our website, the value is in the collectible glass container and not its contents. This is valid especially for very old products which are not intended for consumption as the quality can no longer be guaranteed. We will therefore in certain cases label the products as “collectible glass containers” instead of “whisky” on customs forms for shipping outside the EU. In certain countries it may however not be legal to purchase and ship any product containing alcohol online. It is your responsibility to check your local laws and regulations before making a purchase on our website. We cannot be held liable in case of loss and/or destruction on shipments outside the EU due to various customs regulations.
