Terms & Conditions


  • Introduction

    These Terms and Conditions were last updated on 11th January 2022. We recommend that you print and keep a copy of these Terms and Conditions for future reference. You will be required to confirm during the ordering process that you have read these terms and conditions and agree to be bound by them.

    These Terms and Conditions apply to all orders made using this website.  Please read them carefully and make sure that you understand them before you order any products. They do not affect your legal rights.

    We may change these terms and conditions at any time. Any changes will take effect on the date they are posted onto the site (see date above).  You will be asked to read and accept the terms and conditions each time you place an order, to ensure that you are familiar with the most current ones.

    • Order Process - Orders For Delivery

      You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until you click the Submit Order button.

      Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you with an Order Reference Number and details of the products you have ordered. We will confirm the order details to you in an e-mail. Acceptance of your order and the creation of a legally binding contract between us will only occur when we send you this email,

      Alternatively, we may decline all or part of your order for any reason, in which case we will notify you as soon as practicable to explain why.

      When deciding whether or not to accept your order we may use certain information about you, including any received from credit reference agency checks with Experian Limited or other agencies. In particular, we may pass your details to such agencies for them to check against certain public and private databases. The agencies may keep a record to use in future security checks. This helps to protect you and us against fraudulent transactions.

      • Prices and Payment

      All prices and charges on this site are in UK pounds. They include any VAT payable, but exclude delivery charges (for details see ‘Delivery’ below).

      The total cost of your order will be the price of the products you order, plus any applicable delivery charge. All these will be set out clearly in your Shopping Basket before you submit your order.

      Prices, offers and products are subject to availability and may change before (but not after) we accept your order. If something becomes unavailable, we may offer you an alternative.

      We try very hard to ensure that all information on this site is accurate.  However, just occasionally, an error can occur. If we discover an error in the price or description of a product you have ordered, we will tell you and ask you whether you wish to continue with your order or cancel it.  We may also in our sole discretion, choose not to provide you with the product or service if there has been an error in its description or price.

      We accept payment by Mastercard, Visa and American Express, Shop Pay, Apple Pay and Google Pay. Payment is deducted when you place your order.

      • Restrictions

        You must be aged 18 or over to purchase our products.

        By placing an order, you confirm that you are legally permitted to purchase alcohol in your country of residence, and upon delivery you may be asked for ID in the form of a driving license/passport, failing which the delivery driver may refuse to deliver the products.

        • Where we Deliver

          Delivery must be to an address in the mainland United Kingdom (excluding Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man and the Scottish islands). In the event that no one is there to receive your package the delivery may be left in a safe space (please see 'how we deliver' below for more details).

          • Delivery Charges

            We make every effort to keep our delivery charges as low as possible. You only pay one delivery charge, irrespective of the number of products ordered. Very occasionally different products in the same order may be delivered separately.  If we are not able to deliver all of the products together we will not charge you extra delivery costs.

            When you add products to your Delivery Shopping Basket, the appropriate standard delivery charge will be added automatically.  If you add additional items or change the delivery address, please double check the charge by clicking “Re-calculate”.  You will always be able to see all applicable charges before submitting your order.

            • How We Deliver

              Products are delivered by our courier partner DHL UK.

              • Standard courier deliveries, normally 2 - 3 working days

              We will contact you with an estimated delivery date which will be within 14 days after the day on which we accept your order. For estimated delivery times following dispatch, please see our deliveries page.

              If we are sending your product by courier, we will wherever possible provide you with a link to the courier's website, and a tracking number, so that you can track your order right to your doorstep.  Standard courier deliveries are usually made between 9am and 5pm.

              All deliveries will be delivered to your door or left in a safe place. We may ask for you to sign for your delivery, if you are out when the courier arrives, the courier may leave a card with a contact number for you to call.

              We do everything we can to meet the delivery times specified in this section. However, delivery times may be affected by factors beyond our control and therefore they cannot be guaranteed. We will inform you if we become aware of an unexpected delay. We are unable to accept liability for any delays but you may contact us to seek a refund for any products you have paid for but not received.  

              In the event you are asked by a courier to re-arrange a delivery, you are responsible to arrange this delivery. If you have failed to do so, we will contact you for further instructions and may charge you for any storage costs and any further delivery costs. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you, we may end the contract.
