THE FINE PRINT

The customer contracts with the carrier (generally UPS). Thirst Wine Merchants will engage the carrier on behalf of the customer. In the case of shipments outside New York State, the sole responsibility for complying with local regulations or tax requirements rests with the customer. If we are unable to ship to your area, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and suggest that shipping be arranged to a direct-shipping friendly state. Please call the store or e-mail info@thirstmerchants.com for additional information.
