It is a condition of purchase that you verify that you are 18 years of age or over and that all the details that you have provided in completing the order and the offer to purchase the liquor are true and correct. If you do not confirm that you are 18 years or over, your order will not be processed.

You agree and acknowledge that your contract for the purchase of liquor through this website is made with TDDC as agent for the Licensee of Packaged Liquor Licence number LIQP770017626 (Licence).
