How long will my order take to get to me?
Shipping times vary depending on your shipping address. Once our retail partner is able to verify your age and shipping address, they’ll approve your order and add a tracking number. Orders are typically shipped within 5 business days.
If your order has been approved, you can find your tracking number in your account (if you made one) or in your confirmation email.
Do I need to be present when my order is delivered?
An adult (age 21 or older) will need to be present to sign an age-verification receipt for the package.
Can I ship my package to a PO Box or UPS/Fedex/USPS Store?
Packages cannot be shipped to PO boxes or local carrier locations. Orders that are placed and addressed to these locations will be rejected and refunded. For orders that have been placed to ship to acceptable locations, you may be able to schedule a pick-up at a local carrier location.
The best way to do this is to check the tracking link in your order confirmation email and follow the carrier’s instructions.
What do I do if my package says that it’s been delivered, but is missing?
First, double-check the shipping address to make sure it’s correct. If the address is correct, file a claim with the carrier via your tracking link so that they can begin looking into the matter as soon as possible.
Then, reply to your order email or email email@example.com to notify us about the issue so that we can also contact the retailer who shipped your order.

Victor J. Bergeron, better known as Trader Vic, was the godfather of Tiki culture in America. In 1944 after success with several exotic drinks, a bit of serendipity happened that would not only place Trader Vic at the forefront of cocktail mixology, but would also earn him a place in history. That day in Oakland, The Trader pulled down a bottle of 17 year old Jamaican Rum, added a squeeze of lime, a dash of rock candy syrup, a splash of orange curacao, some French Orgeat and poured the concoction over cracked ice. He handed to a friend visiting from Tahiti who immediately exclaimed, “It’s Mai Tai Roa Ae!” (Tahitian for “Out of this world- The Best”), and the first Mai Tai was born- Paradise in a Glass.
By the 1940’s and 50’s, the Mai Tai was so popular it depleted world rum supplies in the 1940s and ’50s.
