Responsible Service of Alcohol
Kill Kapture takes its commitment to the communities it serves seriously and places our value of ‘we’re responsible’ at the heart of our operations.
Kill Kapture has an obligation to ensure and facilitate the Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA), and in some circumstances we may have to refuse service to someone to meet our obligations.
Whilst there are various reasons we may need to refuse service, the four most common reasons are:
- Secondary Supply
We cannot sell or supply alcohol to a person who is intoxicated so we will refuse service if we believe you are intoxicated.
Secondary supply is the most common way young people obtain alcohol; this is where an adult purchases alcohol on behalf of a person under the age of 18. It is against the law to provide or supply alcohol to a minor on a licensed premises. We will refuse service if we have reasonable belief an adult is purchasing alcohol on behalf of a minor or will supply alcohol to a minor. We will always err on the side of caution in the interest of safe and responsible service of alcohol.
ID25 Policy - 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 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.

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.
