Customer notice: New Hong Kong Law on Sale of Alcohol

Posted on December 14, 2018 by Abbelio Wines | 0 comments

Abbelio Wines has always required that all customers be aged over 18.  From November 30th 2018 however, Hong Kong law requires that:

  1. When you purchase wine from us we inform you that “根據香港法律,不得在業務過程中,向未成年人售賣或供應令人醺醉的酒類。Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.”, so you will see this wording on our web site and in our emails. In addition, if you order over the phone we will need to read this notice to you.
  2. You provide a declaration that you are aged over 18. If you have ordered online previously, you will know that we require this declaration when you place the order, and this will continue to be required going forward. In addition, if you order by email or by phone we will ask you if you are aged over 18 and will unfortunately not be able to process the order if you do not provide a positive response. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience.
