I frequently get emails from both existing and prospective customers asking me if it’s possible to buy more than just 6 bottles of Westvleteren per order.
I’m happy to announce that you can now order up to 12 bottles per order!
What’s more, this is the best value for money. If you want to buy Westvleteren at a great price this is the box you should get.
Previously it wasn’t possible to ship 12 bottles because I didn’t have the proper boxes. I don’t just use any box to send out my beers. The boxes are specially sized to be as small as possible because this keeps the bottles firmly in place. The less they move around, the more likely they will not get damaged during transit.
This method of packing works very well. If you don’t take care while shipping bottles of beer you’ll eventually end up with broken ones because the boxes get thrown around a lot during transit. I’ve thrown some of my boxes down a flight of stairs as a test, and all bottles remained intact.
So, when everyone started telling me they wanted to order more than 6 beers I started looking for a box that would hold these. After testing out a few different models I settled on a box with dimensions of 35cm x 35cm x 25cm. This is the optimal size box for sending 12 37cl bottles of beer, in 3 rows of 4 bottles stacked on top of eachother.
All bottles are packed in special “bottle sleeves” made from recyclable cardboard. The bottles then go in a plastic bag packed with biodegradeable “packing chips” and this is then all placed in to the doubly ply cardboard shipping boxes.
So when you are thinking of ordering Westvlereren online from me you can be assured that you’re getting the best price and the best possible shipping to make sure your beers arrive intact.
