When you order wine from us, delivery will be either by one of our vans or by courier. At present, delivery with our own vans is free of charge. The minimum order on our site is 12 bottles, so make sure your cart is full before entering your delivery details. Here are some of our early summer offers to get you going:

If you live outside Central Scotland or the Borders we can deliver by carrier, the current charge is £6.50 per delivery. If you require more information please contact Charlie Shentall on 07484 719 411 or email him at charlie@cockburnsofleith.co.uk to discuss options.

The delivery schedule for our own vans has been changed due to the impact of the Covid-19 virus and will be as below:

Delivery using our own vans will be free. However there will be a charge if your order has to go by Courier – If you are unsure if our vans deliver to your area fill up your basket, put in your postcode and press update, if there is a charge it will come up.

Delivery options

Our drivers are fully aware of the need to protect themselves and yourself when delivering/picking up.

  1. They will deliver to you, and ask for a signature of receipt which they will give to you.
  2. They will leave the items safe, by arrangement, in a place that is secure, protected from weather, and not in direct site of neighbours or the Public. (i.e. a shed, porch with an outside door). Due to the high value of the wine, you must arrange how the delivery is to be made, if you are unable to come to the door or you are out.


We accept returns on the following basis:

Free of Charge:

  1. A pre-agreed Sale or Return function
  2. Faulty wine (corked or tainted) – if agreed, we may just replace the wine like for like.
  3. Wine not as described (i.e. picking error)
  4. Broken bottles upon delivery – replacement will be made for all broken bottles and those stained by the leaked wine only if immediately reported upon delivery or within 7 days and the pieces must be kept for pick up by us.

Delivery charge will apply:

  1. If you live outside Central Scotland or the Scottish Borders
  2. Dislike of the wine, if, for any reason, you do not like the wine, you can return the remaining full bottles for either a replacement or a credit.
  3. Cancellation of an event where no Sale or Return had been agreed

Ullage: Some wines with age show a drop in the level of wine due to evaporation, this is entirely natural, and therefore the wine is considered non-refundable.
