The contact information page is blank so i would 100% not trust this website. Geniune traders would show their contact address in fact i think they have to show their address as i believe it is trading standard.

I wouldnt trust it, as Kava says they should have their contact details and there is no sign of their Company Number or mention of vat.

Some of there descriptions and images i have looked at appear to have come from thedrinkshop.com, the pricing is cheap, too cheap, they are selling bottles that have sold out long ago for a price that they would have been when they were released.

The Macallan Fine Oak Malt 18 year old is £69.99 but £200 elsewhere. The pricing is too unbelievable to be true.

I would not trust this site.

If it's too good to be true, it usually is. Be wary. As mentioned no contact info is a major red light.

There is something not right with this site, the checkout is not secure and fails half way through checking out.
