Drink Responsibly

How much is too much?
Government advice is that people should not regularly exceed their weekly unit guidelines:
Men: 14 units of alcohol
Women: 14 units of alcohol
Furthermore, the guidance suggests that the unit allowance is best spread across the week and not 'saved up'.
What is a unit?
The size and strength of your drink will determine the number of units it contains.
One drink does not necessarily equate to one unit - for example a glass of wine can range between just over one unit and more than three units depending on the size of the glass and type of wine.
Remember, when you're drinking at home, you tend to pour measures that are larger than you get in your local pub or restaurant.
Alcohol and the Law
The law on alcohol covers such areas as underage drinking, drink driving and drinking in public places. The full facts can be found on the Drinkaware website. Find out more >
Our Commitment
We do not sell alcohol to anyone that we believe to be intoxicated.
We operate a Challenge 25 policy on delivered sales, always asking for a recognised form of ID when we have reason to believe that the customer or person receiving goods may be under the age of 25.
We will not sell alcohol to customers if we suspect that they intend to pass it to under 18s.
We do not offer any incentives to our customers to drink irresponsibly.
We support the Portman Group's Code of Practice regarding the responsible naming, packaging and promotion of alcoholic drinks.
Our staff have easy access to information about alcohol by volume (ABV) and alcohol units, for customers' benefit as well as their own.
The ABV of every alcoholic product we sell can be found on our website and on the product label.
We support the aims of the Drinkaware trust. This independent, public-facing body has the objective of changing the UK's drinking habits for the better.
