Melbourne Pick-Up:

As an alternative to postal delivery, we offer a parcel pick-up option from our shop in FITZROY, Melbourne. Address; The Bitters Lab: Shop 9 / 397 Smith St. Fitzroy.  Simply choose 'pick up' when selecting a shipping option. We will contact you with instructions for collection usually within 24-48 hours. 


US/CANADA Customers: Sorry - no spirits, liqueurs or vermouths can be ordered from this site. Bitters and non-alcoholic items... go for it!

International shipping charges are calculated by weight. International orders may be subject to customs or import duties and applicable taxes on the importation of alcohol. Only Bitters is not responsible for these potential additional costs. 

Australian Goods and Services Tax (GST), currently 10%, is built into our prices.  This will be deducted off the total price at the time of charging for all international orders.

We use Australia Post Express Courier International service.  Please allow for 4-7 working days for the arrival of your parcel. However, some customers do experience delays due to their countries' customs offices.  If your order does not arrive within 7 days, please contact us to investigate.
