Based in France, we have the capacity to ship our Japanese whiskies and spirits to most of the major European Union countries and of course throughout France.
On each product page or during the order process, estimated delivery dates are given to you based on the following:
This first step depends on time an day of order's validation:

- Validated after noon, on a Friday or during the weekend*? Your package is prepared and shipped on Monday.
Once your package has been prepared by our logistics team, it is handed over to the choosen carrier. You will then receive an information email including a link allowing you to track the progress of your delivery on the carrier's website. Delivery times then depend on the carrier, the country of delivery and the option chosen when ordering.

* Orders are not prepared during public holidays or during exceptional closing periods indicated here. They are then prepared on the first following working day.

Sending bottles, especially premium products, requires special precautions. This is why we have chosen packaging specifically designed for the transport of alcohol bottles. They are composed of a foam shell that encloses each bottle at the base and then holds the bottle(s) in the box to avoid shocks or rubbing.
This packaging is used for the vast majority of orders, only a few special cases (oversized bottles, large numbers of bottles, accessories, etc.) are custom-packaged by our logistics team with the same objective of quality and protection.
Please note that the outer cardboard packaging is neutral and does not indicate the contents of the package. Also, except for shipments to French overseas departments and territories or export, the invoice is not provided in the package (it is sent to you by email and available for download in your customer account upon validation of your order).
For exceptional bottles.
Some rare and precious products require a specific preparation and shipping process to take into account their exceptional nature. For these bottles, a tailor-made transport solution will be defined, depending on the product and the delivery address, to ensure the best possible service and integrate the appropriate level of insurance. We will therefore contact you directly to establish this delivery protocol.
These exceptional products do not have an estimated delivery date displayed but a message confirming this specific process.
