Understanding what you need to do to sell alcohol can be daunting and overwhelming (to say the least), whereas, in fact, it is quite simple. However, the way that you source/make and sell your product determines the process you need to go through.
We’ve broken this down into 4 sections depending on where you get your alcohol from, and how you plan on selling it. To help, there are a lot of useful resources available on the gov.uk website.
I’m importing / sourcing my alcohol from a wholesaler
What do I need to sell alcohol on DELLI?
Do I need a premises license to sell on DELLI?
No, as you’ll be selling your products online through the DELLI platform, you won’t be serving or selling in person.
I’m making alcohol at home
Selling alcohol that you make at home varies depending on what you’re selling, the categories change depending on the alcoholic strength of the drink. The UK government has put together guidance on this based on whether you are selling Distilled alcohol (more info here), or brewed alcoholic drinks (more info here).
