10. VINTAGES VARIATIONS / LIMITED-EDITION RELEASES

With the nature of vintage-specific wines and limited-edition spirits, there may be times that certain products on our website become out of stock.

We will notify you via email or phone within 24 hours of the order being placed of any changes in vintage to suggest alternative vintages, or similar products prior to shipping if these products are out of stock. You are entitled to a full refund if these options are unsuitable.

 

11. WEBSITE IMAGERY

We always strive to keep our website imagery up to date with the latest bottle shots or packaging, however there may be instances where bottles/labels vary as they have yet to be updated. Product images are therefore for illustration purposes only and cannot be seen as an exact representation of what is in stock. We will not contact in the instance where packaging, bottling or labels differ as the product itself remains the same. Where the product itself differs (through vintage variations, for example), we will notify you within 24 hours.
