ONLINE STORE TERMS & CONDITIONS
1. THESE TERMS
1.1 These terms govern the sale of products by us and will form the basis of the contract (“Contract”) between us and you (“you”).
1.2 Additional terms govern the sale of Founders’ Club packages (“Package”). Please refer to these terms if you wish to join the Cooper King Distillery Founders’ Club.
1.3 Please read these terms carefully before you purchase products from Cooper King Distillery. These terms tell you how we will provide products to you, how you and we may change or end the contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. If you think there is a mistake in these terms, please contact us.
1.4 When we use the words "writing" or "written" in these terms, this includes emails.
2. OUR CONTRACT WITH YOU
2.1 No part of this website constitutes a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your order constitutes a contractual offer that we may, at our sole discretion, accept. Our acceptance will take place when we have received your application or you complete the online checkout process (“Order”), payment has cleared and we have confirmed your Order in writing, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. You are responsible for ensuring that the information supplied in the Order is complete and accurate.
3. GOODS, PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
3.1 All pricing information on the website is correct at the time of going online. We reserve the right to modify prices and alter or remove any offers or services without any notice at any time.
3.2 In the event that prices are changed during the period between an Order being placed and us processing that Order and taking payment, the price shall be that displayed during the checkout process prior to payment.
3.3 We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of our products or services to any person or geographic region. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.
3.4 We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or services that we offer. All descriptions of products or product pricing are subject to change at any time without notice, at the sole discretion of us. We reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time.
3.5 We reserve the right to refuse an Order. If we cannot accept your Order we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you. This might, for example, be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because payment has not been authorised or because we find that you are under the legal minimum drinking age. Any sums paid by you in relation to that Order will be refunded within 14 calendar days.
We reserve the right to limit or prohibit Orders that, in our sole judgement, appear to be placed by dealers, re-sellers or distributors.
3.6 Whilst every reasonable effort has been made to ensure that all visual representations and descriptions of goods for sale from us correspond to the actual goods you receive, we cannot be held responsible for variations from such descriptions. This refers only to variations of the correct goods, not different goods altogether.
3.7 We reserve the right to make any changes in the specification of the goods that may be required to conform to any applicable safety or other legal or regulatory requirements without notice.
4. GIFT VOUCHERS
4.1 ‘£’ or ‘%’ gift vouchers can be redeemed on our website or in the Cooper King Distillery shop as full or part payment of products, subject to availability. Each voucher will detail a unique ‘promo code’: if purchasing online simply enter the promo code at the checkout. For all other purchases present your voucher or code to a member of staff and they will apply the discount.
4.2 ‘£’ or ‘%’ gift vouchers are required to be used in their entirety in one transaction; remaining balances are not carried over and no change can be given. ‘£’ or ‘%’ gift vouchers can only be redeemed against purchases made in pounds sterling. ‘£’ or ‘%’ gift vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash and cannot be used in conjunction with other offers or discounts. Gift vouchers do not expire.
4.3 Tour gift vouchers entitle the bearer to a complimentary standard distillery tour. The voucher must be redeemed online by entering the unique ‘promo code’ at the checkout. Vouchers can be used to book onto any available standard tour. Tour gift vouchers cannot be exchanged for cash and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers or discounts. Tour gift vouchers do not expire.
4.4 We are not responsible if any type of Gift Voucher is lost, stolen, destroyed or used without permission and no replacement will be provided in these circumstances. We reserve the right not to accept any vouchers that have or appear to have been forged, damaged, defaced or otherwise tampered with.
5.1 All payments will be processed in pounds sterling (GBP) by Stripe or Paypal.
6. PRE-ORDER PURCHASES
6.1 Any purchase of an item made before it is available to the general public is deemed a ‘Pre-order’ and will be treated as such. We will endeavour to dispatch all Pre-orders on or after the date shown on the website and/or within the item description. Please be aware dispatch dates may change on Pre-order items due to the nature of our production process.

7.7 AGE RESTRICTIONS.

9. FAULTY, DAMAGED OR INCORRECT GOODS
9.1 We hope you will be happy with the goods you receive. However, should you feel it necessary to return an item because it is faulty, different from its description at the time of purchase or different to what you ordered, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days to inform us of the fault or error and to arrange a refund or replacement.
9.2 GOODS DAMAGED IN TRANSIT. We will take great care to pack your Order to ensure that it arrives in perfect condition. Unfortunately, some parcels may incur damage while in transit. If a parcel shows clear signs of damage or leakage at the time of delivery, we suggest that you refuse the parcel and ask the courier to return the goods to sender. If you discover the goods are damaged after taking delivery, promptly notify us in writing with photographic evidence of the damage no later than seven days after the date of delivery. Provided notification is received within this time, we will replace the damaged goods where a replacement is available and bear the associated costs. Where replacement goods are not available, for example, Inaugural Release Whisky, we will refund you the recommended retail price (RRP) of the individual damaged goods and where an RRP is not indicated the refund will be limited to £250 per individual item.
10.1 We will use the personal information you provide to us: to supply the goods to you; to process your payment; and if you agreed to this during the order process, to give you information about similar products that we provide, but you may stop receiving this at any time by contacting us.
