JACUSTOMER-nm48grjg- :

HI ....I am interested to know if it is legally possible to open a Alcohol delivery service (not unlike a pizza delivery service) wines, beer and spirits door to door....delivery by motorbike that sort of thing. Would like to do online and by phone. Is there legal restrictions?

JACUSTOMER-nm48grjg- :

I am interested in investing in a online/Motor bike deivery service for beer and wine not unlike a pizza delivery set up. What are the legal restrictions and requirements?

JACUSTOMER-nm48grjg- :

Please advise as to where to go for advise? Legal representation.

AlexWatts2013 :

Yes you can, you would need a premises licence. The premises / warehouse where the alcohol is being dispatched will require a premises licence. A premises licence authorities the use of any premises (vehicle, vessel or moveable structure or any place or a part of any premises), for licenceable activities. A single licence covers all activiites. However, if alcohol is sold or supplied a personal licence holder and a designated premises supervisor are a mandatory requirement.

AlexWatts2013 :

You would need to apply to the Local Council for a licence for the above activity. For detailed guidance please see: https://www.gov.uk/alcohol-licensing
