rsa cOMMITMENT POLICY

Responsible Service of Alcohol

Selling alcohol brings with it a great responsibility to you and to the community at large. As a committed, responsible community member we actively pursue harm minimisation strategies and continually develop new initiatives in terms of alcohol safety. We acknowledge that safe alcohol consumption is ultimately the responsibility of you as an individual, however it is also our responsibility to abide by the strict policies and procedures that governs all Australian liquor licensees.

 

Our aim is to be the most responsible liquor licensee in N.S.W., and to go above and beyond legal compliance to help create an environment that can be enjoyed by all and to always add value to the community rather than adding harm.

 

Proof of age verification

 

As a part of our commitment to the responsible service of alcohol, we enforce the checking of proof of age identification. We take the responsible service of alcohol very seriously and want to make absolutely sure that we only sell alcohol to people of the proper legal age (18+). To be on the safe side I.D. is required if you look under 25 and this is enforced both in our club and for home deliveries. Please don't take offence if we ask you for I.D. Think of it more as a compliment because you look under 25.

 

Buying for minors

 

Did you know supplying alcohol to a minor can incur a fine of up to $27,500 and/or 12 months imprisonment? We will refuse service if we believe that an adult is purchasing alcohol for a minor or a person who is intoxicated. No offence is intended, and we will always err on the side of caution in the interest of safe and responsible service of alcohol.

 

NSW Liquor Licensing Act

 

New South Wales: Liquor Act 2007: It is against the law to sell or supply alcohol to, or to obtain alcohol on behalf of, a person under the age of 18 years.

 

Standard Drinks

 

Measuring spirit nips when pouring from a bottle is very important to drinking responsibly. A 30mL spirit nip (40% alc/vol) is the equivalent of one standard drink and it is very easy to go over the standard drink limit if not using measures. If in doubt, please refer to the alcohol volume percentage on the label. If the alcohol volume varies, so will the standard drink measure so calculate your measures carefully. Please note: when delivering an online order we are unable to deliver to an intoxicated person.
