Sent the bottle, had insurance and track and trace. Didnt hear anything for 10 days. Track and Trace said it was in transit. Then Track and Trace went blank and aletter arrived. Sending alcohol over 24% to Europe is banned .. Ok in the UK .. but abroad. I siad, Ok, it hasnt left he UK, can you send it back .. no, because you were attempting to do something against the rules, so its been destroyed.

No compensation ... tough

sorry to say this i have been saying this for a while insurance is no good as they dont cover glass ie royal mail :headbang:

some sellers have had bottles destroyed and told dont send abroad as they will be prosocuted for a second offence a lot of money i believe

I don't know if this will help or if the info is accurate, though he seems to know something of the law. Take a look at Post: #6 and #8 at this site

Maybe you can get something back!
Good luck
