Age Restrictions

We won’t sell products to anyone who isn’t 18 years old or over. By placing an order you confirm that you, and the recipient in the case of a gift, are at least 18 years old. In the UK it is illegal for any person under the age of 18 to buy, or attempt to buy, alcohol for themselves or for any other person under the age of 18.

If our couriers are in any doubt about the age of the recipient on delivery, they will request some form of ID. If the person receiving the products is unable to produce appropriate ID, unfortunately our couriers will be unable to leave the products.

Availability & Pricing

No contract exists between you and us until we notify you that we have accepted your order and despatched the goods. We are not obliged to accept your order.  Goods must be paid for in full prior to despatch.

Prices and specifications can change without notice and products are subject to availability.

We endeavour to ensure the accuracy of the information on ‘the site’. Should a product be unavailable, we will endeavour to inform you of this promptly.  In that situation you are entitled to be refunded in full for your order, or to substitute the product. If a substitution is required, you will be contacted first and given opportunities to choose the replacements, or get a refund. Order cost for substitutions will reflect the relative prices of substituted products.

From time to time, we may feature promotions or offers on ‘the site’. Each offer shall be subject to its own specific terms.

All prices are quoted in pounds sterling, and may be per bottle or per case, as marked. All delivery charges are additional.  Delivery charges may vary according to postcode, you will be informed of the final postage cost when you place and pay for your order.

We accept payment by all major credit cards and PayPal.

Description and price of the goods. We make every effort to ensure that prices and descriptions of goods shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order. The price of the goods will be as shown on the checkout page of our website when you placed your order. We will charge you this amount.  In the unlikely event that the price shown on the checkout page is wrong, and we discover this before shipping your order, we are not required to sell the goods to you at the price shown. We always try and ensure that the prices of goods shown on our website are accurate, but occasionally genuine errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the goods that you have ordered we will let you know as soon as possible and give you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it.

Errors in processing payment. If the payment is processed, but there is an error which results in us not receiving payment from the customer, we reserve the right to reprocess the payment at a later date. If this is not successful the customer will also be asked to pay on the site with an alternative payment method, and given a reasonable period of time to complete the payment – usually 14 days.

Upon receipt of your order, you should inspect it to make sure that it is intact and in full.   You should notify us immediately of any items that are incorrect or incomplete.

Your signature, or those receiving the product, at the point of delivery acknowledges receipt of the goods. Once the products have been delivered, according to your original delivery instructions, it becomes the recipient’s responsibility. We have a system in place whereby our carrier notifies us when a delivery has been made. In the event that the goods cannot be delivered a card will be left by our carrier giving instructions for collection or re-delivery.

We use protective packaging to supply your order to mitigate the risk of damage during transport. In addition, we will label our boxes to encourage carriers to keep our bottles safe and upright. This should be sufficient for your order to arrive in perfect condition.  The Delivery boxes should not carry any branding to reduce the risk of theft.

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions will reduce your statutory rights relating to faulty or mis-described goods. Further information about your rights is available from your Local Authority Trading Standards Department or Citizen’s Advice Bureau.

Unwanted goods that have been correctly supplied will only be accepted for return at our discretion. You must contact us for authorisation before returning any items. It will be your responsibility to ensure the goods are returned unopened and in a re-saleable condition. We regret we are unable to refund any carriage costs.

We cannot accept any liability for delayed or non-delivery of goods due to misinformation or an incorrectly supplied delivery address or a mistake by the carrier.

If a parcel is returned to us due to an incomplete or incorrect delivery address supplied by you, the customer, we reserve the right to charge the appropriate carriage fee to re-send.

If you do not wish the goods to be re-sent we will, at our discretion, refund the value of the goods, but we are unable to refund the original carriage fee.

We accept no liability for goods required for a specified date, which fail to arrive due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

We shall not be liable for any delay in delivering your products if that delay or failure is caused by circumstances beyond our control such as but not limited to, war, riot, civil commotion, malicious damage, compliance with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction, fire, flood, storm or Act of God, failure of ISP or telecommunications provider in connection with the performance of this Agreement or delays which occur once the package has been passed to our carrier.

Customer satisfaction – If you are dissatisfied with our performance in any way, please contact our customer services department immediately on info@craftyconnoisseur.co.uk

We aim to deal with all enquiries fairly, confidentially and quickly.  We try to resolve most issues immediately, but where this is not possible, we will keep you informed about progress until a satisfactory resolution has been achieved. We are continually improving our service, but if you have any particular ideas or suggestions about how we can improve, please send them to: info@craftyconnoisseur.co.uk


You may cancel your order for any reason whatsoever at any time up to the date that we ship the products.
