China and Hong Kong

Due to the situation in China, there are restrictions on sending packages to China and Hong Kong. At the moment there is a limited amount of flights to both Hong Kong and China, resulting in less capacity to be able to send packages.
We currently only offer: "hold for later shipment" and DHL express to China and Hong Kong. We suggest selecting the hold for later shipment option.


Hold for later shipping

With this option you have the option to purchase bottles and reserve them for later shipping. A great way to combine multiple orders into one shipment.

You will see your purchased bottles in your personal account. Whenever you are ready to have them shipped send an email to [email protected] and we will create a shipping order for you.

This service is free and you will only pay for the actual shipping costs.
