Aelia Duty Free promotes responsible drinking and aims to be the most responsible duty free liquor retailer. We may refuse alcohol sales to an adult if we believe they are purchasing alcohol for a minor. Adults must be aware of their responsibilities regarding secondary supply. 

We understand that having a drink is a normal part of the way we socialise, but also recognise the importance of looking after your health and wellbeing. We therefore seek to assist with the management of an environment that can be enjoyed by all.

For more information about Drinking Responsibly, visit www.cheers.org.nz.

Measure Safe - Measuring spirit nips when pouring from a bottle is very important in drinking responsibly. A 30ml spirit nip (40% alc/vol) is the equivalent of one standard drink. Always refer to the alcohol volume percentage on the label. If the alcohol volume varies, it will affect the standard drink measure.
