Important Notice - you must be at least 21 years of age to purchase wine and/or spirits. Due to federal and state regulations, all wine and/or spirits shipments must be received by an adult 21 years of age or older. By placing your order, you have represented to Purdy’s that you are at least 21 years of age. All alcoholic beverages that Purdy’s arranges for shipment on your behalf must be received and signed for by an adult of legal drinking age. Any items purchased from Purdy’s will be delivered with an "Adult Signature Required" designation, and the third-party carrier that delivers the items must verify identification from someone 21 years of age or older upon delivery.
Many states within the United States have laws regulating the shipment of alcohol into their jurisdiction and may limit and/or prohibit the amount and/or type that can enter the state without permits or licenses. Purdy’s does not, itself, provide shipping services. If you wish to have your purchase shipped, Purdy’s will contact a third-party common carrier to ship on your behalf. Unfortunately, common carriers will not deliver alcohol to all states - those states have been removed from our shipping options at checkout. Common carriers also cannot deliver alcoholic beverages to a PO, APO, or FPO box.
By arranging for transportation of alcoholic beverages by a third-party carrier, Purdy’s is providing a service to, and acting on behalf of, you, as the purchaser and title holder of the products purchased. By placing an order with Purdy’s and asking Purdy’s to arrange for transportation and delivery of products on your behalf, you are expressly representing and warranting that you have reviewed any pertinent local, state and federal laws and regulations before purchasing alcohol on this website and that your purchase complies with all applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations. You further represent and warrant that you have obtained any required permission, paid any required fees, are working through properly licensed intermediates where required, are legally entitled to take possession of the alcoholic beverages, are legally entitled to take the quantities ordered, will comply with any applicable tax laws, and that you and the person accepting delivery of the alcoholic beverages are at least 21 years of age.
Purdy’s makes no representation as to the legality of shipping to any state outside of New York and does not assume any responsibility for obtaining any necessary licenses or permits. If you have a specific question about states that we ship to, or licenses held by Purdy’s, please contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (518) 584-5400.
All shipping costs, including insurance, assessed by the third-party carrier are to be paid by you, the purchaser. An insurance fee may be placed on transportation arrangements for rare or expensive items. Purdy’s provides transportation coordination as a complimentary service and does not profit from any delivery arrangements we make on your behalf. Purdy’s makes no warranties or guarantees regarding the transportation or delivery by the third-party common carrier.
For local deliveries via Purdy’s truck or messenger, if there is no one is available to accept your shipment, and/or no one able to provide appropriate proof of identification at the time of attempted delivery, you may be subject to a $20 charge for re-delivery. For orders sent via a third-party common carrier, if there is no one available to accept your shipment, and/or no one able to provide proof of identification at the time of attempted delivery, you may be liable for the costs to reship the order.
By placing an order with Purdy’s, you assume title to the merchandise upon tendering full payment. All title to, and ownership of, all alcoholic beverages passes from Purdy’s to you in New York State. Therefore, New York State sales tax is applied to your order. All items must be paid for in full prior to arrangements for delivery. Purdys’ performance obligation under the purchase agreement for the sale of alcohol is complete upon tender of the merchandise to a third-party carrier for transportation and delivery.
If one or more items you have selected are not available for shipment, we will notify you to offer substitutions or make other arrangements. If we are unsuccessful in contacting you, we will refund part of an order, or the entire order, as applicable based on the missing item(s).
Customer satisfaction remains our top priority. We ask that you inspect your package immediately upon delivery, and that you promptly contact us with any issues with respect to the quality and condition of products received.
By placing an order for spirits with Purdy’s and asking Purdy’s to arrange for transportation and delivery of such products on your behalf, you understand that Purdy’s will pack your items using standard industry methods and additional wrapping as needed to ensure the safety of your spirits order during transit. However, should your package be damaged in transit, there will be zero recourse available to you for reimbursement or replacement of said items being shipped from either Purdy’s or the third-party carrier. When placing a spirits order, you agree to the above and waive all right of recourse.
We will only accept returns if the merchandise is defective in quality. The New York State Alcoholic Beverage Control Law prohibits the return of alcoholic beverages for any other reason, including liquor or wine purchased in customer error.
Please be advised that shipments will not automatically be held depending on high or low temperatures in your area. Your purchase confirms authorization of immediate shipment and delivery.
Purdy’s does not guarantee that third-party carriers have temperature-controlled warehouses. Accordingly, Purdy’s suggests that you refrain from placing orders during extremely hot or cold weather. If you must request shipping during extreme weather conditions, we encourage you to place your order at the beginning of the week using a faster service than ground shipping to avoid weekend layovers in a carrier's warehouse. Purdy’s reserves the right to delay releasing your merchandise to the third-party carrier for shipment in order to ensure that the product you receive is of the highest quality possible.
Shipping times do not include Saturday and Sunday. Most orders leave our store within 1-3 business days. Many orders placed early in the day are sent to the third-party carrier same day. Purdy’s does not guarantee any estimated shipping time. For more precise information as to shipping time, please contact the third-party carrier who is contracted to deliver your merchandise.
Overnight, 2nd Day, & 3-Day Air services are available at an additional cost, as assessed by the third-party carrier. Processing time is not included in these delivery times. If special delivery dates or immediate shipment is required, please contact us at (518) 584-5400.
