All orders are accepted by us (“the Company”) subject to and in accordance with these Conditions. These Conditions override and exclude any terms or conditions in or referred to in any negotiations or course of dealing between the Company and you (“the Customer”) or set out in the Customer's standard terms and conditions. If there is any conflict between the other provisions of this Web Site and these Conditions; or
the provisions of your order and these Conditions then, unless the Company otherwise agrees in writing, these Conditions will prevail.

Prices are in £ sterling, exclusive of VAT. Payment will be by Credit or Debit card only. We do not accept Amex. The Company has used all reasonable endeavours to ensure that prices are accurately set out in the Web Site but reserves the right to change its prices without notice at any time. Prices charged will be those prevailing when your order is accepted. Where your order is supplied in instalments (“Scheduled Delivery”) the price payable will be that applicable at the time of despatch of the first part of your order but, where Scheduled Delivery may continue for a period of 90 days or more, the Company reserves the right to charge the Customer further amounts if the price of the Goods increase before the end of that period.
Payment is due in cleared funds prior to despatch of Goods. We accept most major types of card but do not accept Amex.

Minimum order is 1 item online. An item is defined as 1 x minimum quantity that can be ordered of a specific item. (Please note that in some instances products are only available in cases and this one case is the equivalent of 1 item only).
"Single" prices are for orders of less than 12 items in your trolley.
"Mix (12+)" prices are applied for orders of 12 or more items. In this instance, the prices will change automatically for your entire order.
For some items where they are more than 1 bottle in a single item we offer the discounted price regardless of number of items in your trolley and these will be identifiable as prices will appear the same for both on these items.
Once accepted, no order may be cancelled without the prior written agreement of a director of the Company.
Orders may be accepted by the Company by despatching the Goods, but despatch will not be acceptance where the price has been incorrectly quoted or referenced by the Customer in its order.

Delivery will be made to the address specified by the Customer.

The Company will not be liable for any non-delivery of Goods unless written notice is given to the Company within 3 working days of the date when Goods should have been delivered. The liability of the Company for non-delivery or non-performance or for Goods notified as defective will be limited to replacing the Goods in question, or to refunding the price paid for the relevant Goods.
