We are always working on keeping Drop as up to date as possible. However, we aren’t perfect all the time so discrepancies may occur, we apologise for any information which may be missing or not totally accurate. If you have any questions, or have seen anything that might not be correct, please let us know.

We try to keep all products as accurate as possible, however wines, coffees and beers produced in small quantities run out quickly and details change often, so our images may not always be update to date, so please keep an eye out on the written details of products, not just images.

If we have sold out of a particular wine that has been ordered on-line, we will do our best to re-stock the wine and fulfil the order as soon as possible or suggest a good alternative. This will be done in person, so please make your contact details up to date.


Our standard mainland UK delivery rate is £4.95 for any number of products.

We offer a reduced delivery on small items such as coffee or accessories which will be displayed at checkout.

We offer free delivery on orders over £100.
