This website is managed from our store, James J. Fox, on Grafton Street, Dublin, Ireland. All orders received over the web are processed, fulfilled and dispatched from our store. Stock selection for your orders is carried out in store.
The stock items shown on this website are linked to our retail system stock to help ensure you can only order items that are readily available – there is no unannounced product substitution on our orders. If a product is out of stock, it will show as such and then be removed from sale through the website or marked accordingly. Please note there is a short time lag in updating stock, and therefore it is possible that a product is out of stock but is also shown as available for sale for a short period until the stock levels synchronise. In case that what you order is not in stock at the time, we will notify you swiftly and suggest possible solutions.
Orders placed Monday to Friday before midday will generally be processed and dispatched on the same day. Any orders placed after 12pm or on weekends will be processed and dispatched on the following working day.
Emails received in the course of the online ordering process will be answered promptly by one of our staff members. Alternatively, if you call us on +353 1 6770533, you will be able to get in touch with a member of staff with all our inventories on hand to help you with your product selection, or specific requirements.
Tax rates and VAT-free orders
All orders shipped within the European Union are subject to the applicable VAT rate (21% on most of our selection). The displayed prices would include VAT if you are browsing from the EU, or would exclude VAT if you are browsing from outside the European Union.
VAT is added depending on where the order is shipped to. Orders shipped within the European Union will automatically include VAT, and orders shipped outside the EU will have the VAT deducted – please note this does not apply to shipping fees.
Please note that all orders collected in our store are subject to the current VAT rate, even if you're not an EU citizen.
If, for any reason, you are uncomfortable entering credit card details online, please be assured that we use the safest security systems – our payment processing partner, SagePay, is one of the leading providers on the market. Your details are processed on their secure servers and at no point does our staff have access to your full card information, nor is it saved for any future use.
Due to postal restrictions, we are unable to send any liquid products outside Ireland by post. Liquids can only be delivered with courier service.
How much will my order weigh?
Each product listed on our website has its weight assigned to it in our database – the total weight of all items in your cart, along with your delivery address, will be used to calculate the fees and present the available options to you at checkout.
For whiskey and other spirits, the estimated weight per bottle is around 1.5–1.8kg (some bottles, such as limited releases with more robust packaging, can weigh more). To get a precise quote, add the desired items to your cart and, on the cart page, use the "Estimate Shipping" option. You can also contact us directly and we'll be happy to provide a quote for you.
