Additional samples

Additional samples in the purchasing process of general selection

Offers proceeding in the purchasing process of general selection will receive a request for additional samples. The additional samples must be of same production batch as the first samples delivered and the delivery must take place within two weeks after the request. A more detailed schedule including the due date of delivery and the amount of samples needed will be provided in the request.

The amount of additional wine samples requested mainly follow the general guidelines:

•       Limited availability products                         1 additional sample

•       Premium & Super premium                          2 additional samples

•       Wide Plus & Wide & Mainstream                 5 additional samples

The additional samples will be analyzed using a sensory evaluation and product analyses before the offer will continue to the next stage. If the additional samples don’t correspond to the first samples delivered, Alko has the right to demand a clarification concerning the matter.
