Shopping system

The Bottle Apostle online shopping system allows you to purchase wines, beer, spirits and related merchandise for delivery to any UK or international address through our secure shopping system. All major credit and debit cards are accepted through Sagepay, which is UK and Ireland’s largest independent payment service provider and provides a high level of data encryption, ensuring secure transmission and processing of your details.

You do not need to be registered on our website to order from us, although registering confers benefits such as being able to save a wish list of products, recommend wines to a friend, view orders and purchase history, store events, post a review, etc. The site is fully secure and supports encryption during the purchasing process, but if you would prefer to order by phone you can ring the shop at 020 8985 1549 during opening hours to place an order.

After placing an order online you will receive a confirmation by e-mail.

Gift Vouchers

Gift vouchers and cards may only be used in-store.

Right to cancel

We want you to be totally satisfied with every purchase you make from Bottle Apostle. It is our aim to offer you exceptional value and quality at outstandingly low prices.

If you are a consumer and order anything from us you have statutory rights in the United Kingdom to cancel the order and return any goods ordered in exchange for a refund, provided said goods are in the same condition as supplied. This statutory right of cancellation starts on the date that you submit your order and expires within seven working days, beginning on the day after the day on which you receive the goods.

Notification of intent to return/cancel goods must be received within 7 working days from customer's acceptance of delivery and also returned within 7 days of delivery. You are responsible for ensuring that the goods are received by us and are not damaged in transit. Goods should therefore be securely packaged. We recommend that you return items using recorded delivery for your protection. You are responsible for returning items to us - and covering costs thereof - unless items were incorrectly delivered through our fault.  

Notification must be made in writing - by post, email or fax. See the footer below for our postal address and e-mail. You can fax Bottle Apostle on 0208 525 8666.

Wine prices and availability

All listed prices include VAT. Online prices may differ from in-store prices. Unless marked otherwise, listed prices of wine imported to the UK include all shipping costs to the UK and duty. Prices do not include the cost of delivery to the customer, which will be calculated and displayed in the process of placing an order.

The online shop search function is intended to only show products that are currently in stock and available for despatch. On rare occasions a product may appear as available on the website but is not available (e.g. we may have just sold the last bottles but the system has not updated yet). In this unlikely event we will contact you to let you know when the product will next be in stock and/or recommend a similar alternative. You will also have the option of a full refund through SagePay.


Places for Bottle Apostle’s wine tasting events can be booked through our online shop. The event price and the number of places available is listed on each event page next to the event description. While we make every effort to ensure that availability information is accurate, on rare occasions an event may sell out but be listed as having availability (e.g. we may have just sold the last ticket but the system has not updated yet). In this unlikely event we will contact you and offer you your choice of a place of similar value on an upcoming event or a full refund.

Tickets cancelled fewer than 7 days before the event can be refunded (or, if you prefer, credited to another event with available places) only when we are able to fill your place(s).

Payment must be made at the same time as reserving each place, at which time your name(s) will be placed on the event guest list. Tickets are not despatched for our events.
