How can I return a product?
Old Liquor Company (OLC) will replace or reduce the price or issue a refund if goods bought turn out to be faulty or do not look as advertised.
If you bought any good outside of a shop (by telephone, mail order, from a door-to-door salesperson), you also have the right to cancel and return your order within 14 days, for any reason and with no justification. This is known as the ‘cooling-off’ period.
The “cooling off” period expires 14 days after the day you received your goods. If this period expires on a non-working day, your deadline is extended till the next working day.
You must unequivocally inform the trader of your decision to cancel the purchase. It is not enough to just send the goods back. The trader must provide you with a model withdrawal form , which you can use to inform him/her of your decision but you don’t have to use it.
You must send the unused goods back within 14 days of informing the trader.
You can combine the obligation to inform the trader and to send back the goods, for example, by adding a written statement with the goods that you are returning by e-mail or post.
OLC must and give you a refund within 14 days from receipt of your cancellation, but preserve the right to delay refunding you if we have not received the goods or evidence that you have actually returned them.
This refund includes any shipping charges you paid when you made your purchase. However, OLC may charge you additional delivery costs if you specifically requested non-standard (express) delivery.
The trader should inform you that you have to pay the costs of returning the goods. If they fail do so, they will have to bear the cost. You do not have to pay any other charges that you were not informed about.
All creditcard payments are returned to the creditcard used while ordering, payment by bank to the bank indicated by client.
Please be aware that goods need to be be in the same condition as when shipped by us: bottles must be closed, boxes included etc. Bottles which have been opened and/or partial consumed cannot be refunded.
