Prices, shipping costs, and delivery information
The prices stated on the product pages include the statutory value added tax and other price components for delivery to Germany, the rest of the EU, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein. Prices including VAT are the same for all European customers – the difference between Swiss and German VAT is used to partially offset the costs of duty and customs clearance for deliveries to Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Prices are tax-free and exclusive of import duty for delivery to the USA – sales tax and duty will be charged to the customer by US customs.
In addition to the stated prices, we charge shipping costs for delivery, which appear in the shopping cart. The shipping costs are also clearly communicated on the order page.
Size of cartons
We limit the size of our cartons to 12 bottles out of consideration for the long-term health of our partners’ delivery drivers.
