Yes. All our Cocktail Sorbets contain, on average, 8.3% ABV, which is approximately a single measure of alcohol in each serving (1 unit per 125ml sorbet). Therefore, the sorbets are not suitable for pregnant women. Please enjoy responsibly. Drinkaware.co.uk for the facts.

We charge a flat shipping rate of £5.99 per order, no matter how big or small. This is because your Cocktail Sorbets need to be packaged with great care and delivered in a wool-insulated box containing dry ice to keep your products frozen.

You’ll receive your Xīn and Voltaire Cocktail Sorbets packaged in a wool-insulated box and shipped containing dry ice to keep your sorbets frozen. The sheep’s wool can be repurposed – see woolcool.com for more information.

Each order of our Cocktail Sorbets comes in a complementary dust bag for you to keep and reuse.

Your order will be delivered on your chosen delivery day.

Once your order has been processed, you will be notified by the courier when it is ready for dispatch and given a delivery window.

Yes. As our Cocktail Sorbets contain alcohol, you will need to provide proof of age to take delivery of your order or complete the age verification via the link sent in your order confirmation email. 

It is essential to open each delivery with care. Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide and has a temperature of minus 97 degrees, which can cause skin damage if touched. Please do not open the bag containing dry ice, and keep it in a secure, well-ventilated area until it has fully evaporated before disposing of it.

Yes. Our packaging is fully recyclable, and we’ve taken extra care in selecting sustainable and easily recyclable packaging. The insulated sheep’s wool can be repurposed – see woolcool.com for more information.

Check your local recycling guidelines for more information on recycling the box and tubs.

No. For now, we deliver across England and Wales. We do not yet deliver to Northern Ireland, Scotland, Isle of Man, Guernsey or Jersey. This is because it takes two days to reach these places, meaning we can’t guarantee your Cocktail Sorbets will stay frozen. We are, however, growing and will be expanding to more areas across the UK soon. Make sure you follow us to find out where.

Yes. The courier will notify you of your delivery time. As your delivery contains frozen products, it must be accepted on the first delivery attempt by the courier. We regret that any missed delivery, change of delivery slot or instructions to the courier to be left outside might lead to spoiled products, and no refund will be given. 

Immediately. We take great care in packaging your Xīn and Voltaire Cocktail Sorbets, so they remain frozen from when they leave our freezers to when they arrive at your door. However, our Cocktail Sorbets contain a high alcohol level and will melt quicker than standard ice creams or sorbets. Once you have opened your box, enjoy your Xīn and Voltaire Cocktail Sorbets immediately or immediately transfer them into the freezer.
