• Customers will need to tick another box, confirming they’re over 18 prior to confirmation of purchase and that any recipient of the alcohol is also over the age of 18
• If the prospective buyer does not on both occasions declare they are over the age of 18 (and any recipient) we will refuse to sell the alcohol
