Frequently Asked Questions

For customers outside of South Africa, please check your local customs regulations and rules on alcohol imports  to verify that imports  are  permitted.  It is the responsibility of the importer to ensure compliance with the requirements of the destination country; even if our courier service delivers to the destination, we do not guarantee that it will be allowed in the Country of delivery.

Due to recent changes to import regulations within the EU, there may be potential difficulties shipping to some countries within Europe.

Also note that Import Duties, Vat and other fees may be applied by your local customs authority.  You will be contacted by the courier or your local customs authority to pay the additional costs on your order prior to your shipment being released. Please familiarise yourself with the process and rates charged in your country before placing your order.

Navigate does not accept liability for orders returned to us or destroyed by customs in the event that the import is disallowed, if local import costs are not paid or if delivery is refused.  If the goods are returned to us, we will refund the balance of your order after inspecting the goods and deducting all costs incurred.

We ship to many destinations around the world, including:
New Zealand
Hong Kong
Most countries in the European Union 
Currently, we are not shipping to the African continent, USA, Canada or South America.

We do not charge Vat or other taxes for orders that will be sent to an address outside of South Africa. You may, however, incur import costs when your order arrives at the destination country.   Please familiarise yourself with the process and rates charged in your country before placing your order.

We currently do not offer any alternative options for payment, however, if you have seen a particular bottle online and would like to pay via EFT, please email Kindly ensure that you include the item’s link in your email, and we will promptly provide you with a customised quote for payment. Bottles are not reserved until paid for in full.

One of the reasons your payment may have failed is that your shipping destination country is not the same as the country where you hold your bank account.  This is enforced by the banking industry.

Please contact your bank for further information.

Whilst we pride ourselves on usually having pristine / brand new bottlings, The Collectors Corner also contains older bottlings bottled several years or even decades ago. For this reason normal wear and tear, visible aging and even potential dust (a good sign) is to be expected.
