Terms & Conditions
Periodically we may run ballots for selected products. These will usually be rare and exclusive items. We will ballot items to make it fairer for customers to acquire the item(s) rather than on a "first come, first served" basis. Balloted items may require to be paid for in full at the time of entering the ballot (by completing the pre-purchase process for the ballot item on our website or via direct payment, the customer has entered the ballot - the customer has not purchased the item). If payment is required at the time of entry, this will be communicated on the invitation to enter the ballot. In the past, we have spent time chasing ballot winners for payment only to never receive a reply or to be told that they have changed their mind. Taking payment up front means the exercise of chasing ballot winners for payment isn't necessary. We also think this process helps reduce the number of opportunistic entrants, meaning more true whisky enthusiasts have a chance of winning. When the ballot is drawn, the successful entrants will be informed, and after full payment (if not previously taken), their item will be despatched to them, and the unsuccessful entrants will receive full refunds. Full payment (if not previously taken) for the item must be made within 48 hours of the entrant being informed that they have won the ballot, otherwise the ballot will be redrawn. We reserve the right to refuse any ballot entry without giving reason. If any ballot entry is refused, a full refund will be issued. Ballots are only open to UK residents, as we are unable to process any orders outside the UK. One ballot entry per person. Duplicate entries will be deleted. By submitting an entry to a ballot, entrants confirm that if they are successfully selected, they are able and willing to complete the purchase of the product. We will be unable to process any ballots of entrants who are not the individual named in the entry. We reserve the right to close a ballot earlier than stated on any previous correspondence.
We want you to feel completely at ease purchasing from us over the internet. Security is a major concern to everyone these days and for all our transactions we therefore use Stripe and PayPal; two of the world leaders in internet financial transactions.
