It is a criminal offence for any person to sell alcohol to a person who is under the age of 18 anywhere. There are no exceptions to this. By placing an order you are confirming that you are over 18. Under the supply of alcohol laws if you are purchasing items intended as a gift then the recipient must also be over 18. No offence is committed if a young person signs for alcohol delivered to a home or place of work provided that an adult placed the order.
