We would like to thanks everyone for their patience over the Festive period with all the strikes that were going on.

I’d like to take the time to let you all know we are back to using Parcelforce for our Rusty Nail spirits deliveries.

Delivery Update

Post edited 9/12/22

Firstly, I’d like to say initially that everyone here at Rusty Nail respects the Royal Mail’s Industrial Strike action. It’s within their rights to do and we sincerely hope they can all reach a suitable compromise that benefits everyone.


It has been pretty nightmarish from out perspective as we are desperately trying our best to get orders to customers before Xmas.

I’ve made an executive decision to return to our previous courier, APC for all orders placed today (9/12/22) and over the festive period then in there new year, we will gauge delivery schedules again and see what is happening.

As a general rule, APC are an overnight courier and deliver within 1-2 working days to all UK Mainland addresses.

For Rusty Nail spirits deliveries before Christmas, we recommend placing your order by Monday 19th December. Tuesday 20th at a push =]

Here’ s their Xmas Schedule;

Parcelforce Info

Unfortunately we can’t avoid the delivery charges; they’re an essential of internet shopping. What we can do is only charge you what we are charged by the courier.

Free delivery is offered when you get to a total spend per order of £85 (for UK Mainland orders)
To try and make it slightly more bearable, we include all packaging in the price and we use the best protective packaging to minimise breakages.

All Rusty Nail Spirits Deliveries use the Parcelforce 48 hours service option but as it stands so far, 99% of the orders sent have been delivered safely within 2 days. Therefore if we receive the order before 5.00pm, it will be collected from us the following working day and delivered to you thereafter.
Please be nice to your local delivery driver.
Remember how much you needed them during Lockdown 2020!

As we use an external delivery service, we cannot absolutely guarantee delivery times or days

All Rusty Nail Spirits Deliveries will need to be signed for unless we release a statement in exceptional circumstances (eg  Corona virus outbreak March 2020). Unsigned orders won’t be covered if they turn out to be broken.
An adult over the age of 18 years must be available to sign for all deliveries and proof of age may be asked for. The adult must sign for these at the delivery address.
We understand that many people are at work during the day, so please take advantage of our option of a different delivery address and then we can deliver to your work place during working hours.

Once your order is processed, you’ll receive a tracking email from Parcelforce where you can follow your delivery as well as add further delivery instructions or change the delivery day and time to suit your movements.
