Shipping Instructions

1. Labeling and Documents

Clearly, label each box of spirits using the shipping label. Official USR shipping labels are on the 'My shipping labels' section of 'My account'. You can download and print your shipping label. Please note that your reference number is on the shipping label and it is very important for USR team to see your shipping label on your box and one copy inside your box. Failure to include these labels may result in your samples not being accepted at the USR warehouse.

USA Spirits Ratings is not responsible for tracking the shipping of your spirits, please ensure everything is in order before sending your spirits.
