I am a solicitor in a Scotland. Was your daughter collecting the cider from your own shop?
There is a contravention of section 109 of the 2005 Act which says:
“109 Sending a child or young person to obtain alcohol(1) Any person who knowingly sends a child or young person to obtain alcohol sold or to be soldon any relevant premises for consumption off the premises commits an offence.(2) It is immaterial for the purposes of subsection (1) whether the child or young person is sent toobtain the alcohol from the relevant premises where it is sold or from some other place from whichit is to be delivered.(3) Subsection (1) does not apply where the child or young person works on the relevant premisesor at the place where the alcohol is to be delivered in a capacity (whether paid or unpaid) whichinvolves the delivery of alcohol.”So unless your daughter worked on the premises there has been a breach of the Act. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited fro my time.
Good: you can advance that as a defence then. I hope that answers your question. Please leave a positive rating so that JustAnswer credits me for my time.
