    I was just wondering if any of you lot have had experience with buying alcohol from amazon, and if so how do they verify that you are over 18?

    I have bought several spirits / liqueurs from Amazon. Haven't had any problems so far. I don't know how they verify if you are over 18 or not however, I have always been overage when ordering but never had to prove that.

    I too am curious as to how they verify your age (I've never bought alcohol through amazon but I'm over 18 so I couldn't give an answer)

    yes i have i bought most top shelf alcohols as it cheaper that retail online but most branded stuff is cheaping the supermarket as they are so competitive
    they will check your card i tried to buy something else with an age restriction and just got a refund and an inappropriate card message
