Excellent service! March 25, 2014
Reviewer: Edward Dumas from Knoxville, TN United States  
After placing my original order for 3 bottles, a representative called me a few days later and offered me another bottle with no increase in shipping cost to fill out a 4-bottle box.  It was delivered on a Saturday in time for a gathering that night.  Excellent!
