    • Instructions must be provided that the alcohol must only be delivered to the customer who placed the order.
    • The customer must be present at the time of delivery, and their age and identity must be verified by the delivery person via valid ID.

  3. For Returning Customers:

    • Instructions from the same customer about where to leave the order if they are not present at the time of subsequent deliveries must be obtained and provided to the delivery person.
