    Parcel rejected by UK Custom office and returned back to Spain. The buyer was immediately contacted and informed about the situation. Parcel shipped again to UK, free of charges (even if it had to be paid by the addressee).

    Message sent to the buyer:

    "Unfortunately, the parcel was refused in UK custom's office and referred back to Spain. This morning it was delivered at home. It's a very unusual situation. I will claim Correos Spain and its partner in UK. But in any case, I will send you again the wines. Of course, free of charge.

    I don't know if custom policies have changed in UK. I apologise for the inconvenience caused. Shit happens!

    Please, don't hesitate to contact me if there are more problems with the new delivery process.

    Best regard".
