By using the site and/or placing an order with us you are agreeing to the following Terms and Conditions of sale:
We supply fine, rare and collectable bourbon, whiskey and rye. As such, the products on our site are either limited edition and or new, stored or sourced externally through third parties, collectors and resellers.
All descriptive matter and specifications are for the sole purpose of providing a portrayal of the product that is for sale. It is based on the information on the bottle and our research from distiller literature, books and desktop research. Whilst we go to great lengths to ensure this information is verified, accurate and true, we will not be held liable for incorrect information.
Some of the products we offer span over a century of production and bottling and as such the condition of bottles, labels, seals and contents are variable. We endeavour to source the best available examples and to supply them to you at affordable prices.
Due to the age of some of our bottles we cannot guarantee that all stock is in 100% perfect condition. Some items are so rare, that there might be presentational compromises with labels, presentation boxes or seals, and some bottles of unfiltered rye may suffer from clouding. We cannot guarantee the condition of a bottle's cork, seal or closure and the condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion. Because of the age and condition of some bottles, we cannot accept responsibility for failure/leakage in transit.
The products displayed on our site and the images are of the actual bottles for sale, unless otherwise stated, so please pay close attention to the pictures and look for bottle condition and fill level.
Whilst we operate a real time inventory system a large number of our products are rare and produced in limited quantities. As such, all orders accepted, are subject to the availability of stock at the time of placing your order. We therefore reserve the right to cancel an order if the product is no longer available at the moment of purchase. If your order is not fulfilled you will receive a full refund and we will endeavour to offer you a replacement product at a similar price.
We try to ensure the accuracy of stock information on the site and the information provided to our affiliates that link to our site. Should a product be unavailable when you link through to the site from a third party website please contact us and we will do our best to source a bottle for you.

We reserve the right to amend our prices without notice where necessary
