Shipping Information & Policies

Pappy & Company is located in the shipping and logistics hub of Louisville, KY. We are within a few miles of the international air operations for UPS. As such, we have partnered with UPS to offer a few types of shipping services depending on when you need the package to arrive to your location.

To provide value to our customers, we also ship via USPS priority mail. In some cases, the USPS priority option can be a lower price point with the same level of service. This is a customer option, and we will display the shipping costs for each service during the checkout process.

Special Shipping Information

Free Shipping:Orders with a value of $99 or greater qualify for free shipping. Pappy and Company will ship all free shipping qualified orders via UPS Ground or USPS Priority. Orders containing cigars do not qualify for free shipping due to increased costs associated with tobacco and state requirements around adult verification.

Food Perishables:To maintain the quality of our food products containing chocolate (Brittle and Bourbon Balls), and to guarantee freshness when you open the package, we have the following options available during the summer months:

UPS Next Day Air, UPS 2nd day Air, and USPS Priority for 1 and 2 day shipping zones are available to ship our food products. All other shipping options including ground and USPS Priority 3 day are disabled during warmer periods of the year. We also use special packaging, including insulated poly bags and ice packs. We only ship Monday – Wednesday – to avoid leaving the package over the weekend while in-transit to your location.

Tobacco Products (Cigars):Due to strict state requirements around shipping tobacco and additional handling fees and taxes – we exclude cigars from our free shipping promotion (see “Free Shipping” header above). UPS, as well as various state laws, require an adult signature for all orders containing cigars. As a customer, please expect the adult signature requirement and make arrangements to be there when the package arrives. We are following all legal guidelines in regards to this policy. See below for more options around signature required packages if unable to be there on delivery.

Additional help with signature required packages containing cigars:

UPS: Sign signature online -UPS offers this feature through the free UPS My Choice service. Create a UPS My Choice account if you haven’t already, then sign in and click the incoming package on your dashboard to get started. You can also sign for packages with the UPS app for iPhone or Android. Sign into the app and tap a package to view delivery options for it.

USPS: Sign signature online - To authorize the release of a USPS package, sign into the free USPS Informed Delivery service. On your dashboard, click a package that’s arriving. If you haven’t signed up for it yet, you can do so online, but USPS will need to send you a code in the mail before you can access the account.

You can also do this on your phone with the USPS Informed Delivery app for iPhone or Android. Sign into the app and tap a package to access its options.
