Age Verification

When you place an order online containing tobacco products we are required to verify that you are 18 years or older. The law applies to all sales of age-restricted products, both in shops and when shopping online.

When purchasing for The Hereford Tobacconist, upon delivery we will require identification.

What types of ID are accepted?

We accept a range of ID, as long as it contains your date of birth and full name. Government ID issued under the PASS scheme are also valid. You can cover up your personal details (including photo) as long as your full name and date of birth is clearly visible.

Do you accept Credit Card as verification?

We don’t accept credit cards as verification as these can be easily misused by another person, and because some types of credit card can be issued to those who are under 18.
