As the premier champagne delivery service, we take responsible retailing of alcohol very seriously. We are committed to maximising alcohol awareness for the benefit of our customers and our employees.
The UK Chief Medical Officers’ (CMO) advises that people should not regularly drink more than their weekly unit guidelines:
Men & Women: 14 units of alcohol
This advice applies regardless of how often you drink alcohol; you shouldn't interpret the guidance as allowing you to "save up" your units so you can drink them all on a Friday night.
The size and strength of your drink will determine the number of units it contains. It's not quite as simple as one drink, one unit - 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.
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.
On the DrinkAware website you'll find useful clinically approved facts and information about the effects of alcohol on your life and lifestyle designed to help you make positive decisions about your drinking.
We do not sell alcohol to anyone that we believe to be intoxicated.
We do not sell alcohol to customers whom we suspect of passing alcohol to under 18s.
We do not offer any incentives to our customers to drink irresponsibly.
Our staff have easy access to information about alcohol by volume (ABV) and alcohol units, for customers' benefit as well as their own.
Leading Industry Standards
We believe that our industry can and should work together to promote the responsible enjoyment of alcohol and that collectively, we can positively change the nation's relationship with alcohol.
