Sales and Delivery

Delivery is defined as delivery by Courier from our Elsecar Heritage site shop.

The cost to the consumer is £6.95 per delivery box of the following:

Buyers will need to produce a valid I.D to prove their age of 18+.

Once you have placed your order, we will send you an order confirmation email relating to that order. Instructions will be included as to how you can then track your delivery.

We aim to have your delivery with you within three working days of receipt of your order. For deliveries to more remote areas, delivery can take longer. For deliveries to offshore islands, delivery prices are available on request. Please email us at or call us on 01226 805255 for details of these delivery costs.

Normal delivery times are Monday to Friday between 9.00 am and 5.30 pm, but during busy times, deliveries may be made outside of these times. We can deliver to places of work if you request it at the time of order. Orders placed on a Friday will not be processed until the following Monday. If you are not home when the courier attempts to deliver, a card will be left informing you that an attempted delivery had been made. If you do not contact the courier company, a second attempt will be made. You can authorise the courier to leave the order in a certain place – please add in the delivery instructions section on checkout. IMPORTANT : if a request is made for beer to be left unattended we cannot be held responsible if the beer goes missing after the courier has delivered it. If there is no contact after the second missed delivery, the beer will be returned to us and we will credit your account, less the delivery charge.
