We have recently contacted our members who use our The Society’s Export Service to confirm that this will be withdrawn with effect from 31st December 2022. Recent events including global supply chain issues, Brexit, covid restrictions and fuel surcharges - have had an impact on shipping costs. Unfortunately, these have now conspired to render our export service cost-prohibitive to most members. With no end in sight to this situation, and with dwindling use of our export service, we have decided to withdraw this service at the end of this year.
Members who live abroad can use our website to place orders for deliveries within the UK, either as gifts or to other organisations who can arrange shipments, although all exporters are exposed to the same shipping cost increases. Alternatively, you may wish buy wines to store in Members’ Reserves for future UK delivery.
We will continue to organise a twice-yearly shipment of wines to the Channel Islands. For further information about when we can deliver or to place an order please contact the Export department directly by email. Unfortunately, we are not able to export alcoholic gifts outside of the UK.
