there is a lot of info here:
I am working very closely on this subject and hope to have more info in due course, but this law came into force as of Sept. 2006 and it seems that not many people know about it.
You have highlighted the two auction sites which are based in Germany, but this is not quite the point, the law affects actual sellers, not online auction sites, which are just venues for sellers!
What you need to look at is each individual seller and where they are prepared to ship to. Remember, this includes ALL internet sales, whether through auctions (including Ebay!!!), normal internet sales or even international telephone orders directly to sellers you already know.
This also includes all UK sellers who are offering to send bottles outside of the UK!!!
As I mentioned, I am looking very closely into this and working to find the reality of this law when it comes to paying the duties.
But if YOU are a seller, then you should be prepared to pay the correct duty on any excisable goods if you ship those goods into another EU state.
Oh, that duty MUST be paid before sending the goods too!
This has the possibility of being the most damaging law for whisky business. Just think of the larger UK outlets who rely upon orders from abroad - especially at Christmas-time.
I will keep you informed as I get more information.
