Clearly label each box of spirits using the delivery label, which can be downloaded once you have entered and paid for your spirits in your account.
If you send your spirits directly to our warehouse, you must tick the option: ‘Duties and Taxes payable by shipped'. If the above is not completed, we cannot guarantee that the spirits will not be stopped in Customs and arrive on time for the competition. Paris Spirits Cup is not responsible for tracking the shipping of your spirits, please ensure everything is in order before sending your spirits.
All duty, shipping costs, and taxes must be prepaid by the submitter of the samples. Spirits must be Delivered Duty Paid (DDP), therefore instruction to complete the import declaration should be given to your forwarder/courier company, please choose ‘shipper accept all charges’ on the documentation provided by your courier company. Submitters should also be responsible for any fees related to the import declaration. Spirits cannot be accepted by our logistic partner if the charges associated with shipping have not been paid. Any penalty and additional cost incurred from the non-compliance of declaration requirement in France will be borne by the Submitters.
PSC and its logistic partner will not take responsibility for spirits damaged or lost whilst in transit. In the event that for reasons beyond the reasonable control of PSC, it is necessary or advisable for the PSC to be canceled, PSC cannot accept any liability whatsoever for any direct or indirect loss of profit, damage, or expense of any kind incurred as the result of such cancellation.

The purpose of License to Print was primarily arranged for the convenience of Winners that have larger quantities of bottles to add their PSC Medals. Large scale usage of License to Print enables Winners to save manpower to add to all bottles by hand and/or they can arrange their printing more efficiently without needing to find a machine that can attach stickers with the exact dimensions that PSC Medals are issued at, can be time-consuming/not easily accessible. PSC Medal's showcase winning spirits to buyers who are seeking the all-important PSC stamp of approval. Whether you are the Producer, Distributor, Importer or Retailer, now is your chance to celebrate and boost sales.
Winners are welcome to use the PSC artwork on marketing materials related to the winning products with no restrictions if it's used for marketing material, presentations, website, press releases, trade shows, and any other marketing purpose. For usage of the PSC materials on Bottles or Packaging/Boxes, winners order either PSC Medal Stickers or the PSC License to Print. Both have no time limit to usage and are based on quantity ordered.
