Children must be accompanied by an adult. It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 years to purchase alcoholic beverages in the UK therefore customers under the age of 18 will not be allowed to participate in the tasting. You may be required to supply proof of age on request and we shall not sell or deliver alcohol to anyone who is, or appears to be, under the age of 18. You must be over 18 years of age and capable of entering into a contract and by placing an order you confirm this.

Tour bookings will be processed during the hours of 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday. Any orders received during the weekend or on public holidays will be processed on the next working day. Periods of high demand may result in delays to the processing of orders.

Despite our best efforts to maintain fully accurate tour availability records, it may sometimes happen that we are unable to fulfil a tour booking. In this case, we will contact affected customers directly to make alternative arrangements.

You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.

  1. Payment

Full Payment must be made prior to confirmation of the tour booking or the delivery of the tour gift vouchers, by credit or debit card (we accept all major debit/credit cards, but unfortunately we cannot accept Diners Club or American Express).
