    8.1. Greater Whitsunday Distillery excludes all other implied terms and warranties from these Conditions;

    8.2. Greater Whitsunday Distillery does not accept any liability under these Conditions for matters outside of its direct control or which are not preventable by reasonable diligence on our part (including without limitation, fire, floods, unusually severe weather and acts of god);

    8.3. Greater Whitsunday Distillery is not responsible for any loss or damage suffered due to a delay in Goods being delivered to the Delivery Address; and

    1. SPECIAL CONDITIONS FOR THE PURCHASE OF BARRELS (WHEN AVAILABLE ONLY)

    9.1.   Greater Whitsunday Distillery has barrels available for sale at $500 each (inclusive of GST), which were used in the maturation process for Greater Whitsunday Distillery Rum (“Barrel”). The Barrels are not all of a uniform size, shape or colour and no guarantee can be made as to the physical appearance of the Barrel you purchase and are allocated. Any images of Barrels are for indicative purposes only. You acknowledge the Barrels are for display purposes only - they have been “dried out” and a hole has been drilled into one side so they are not suitable for storing or maturing spirits.

    9.2.   The Barrels are only available for sale to current members from 15 October 2019 and, subject to availability, to 31 April 2020. In the event there are Barrels left after this period, these will be available to purchase by the public in person at the Greater Whitsunday Distillery (no online sales of Barrels are available).

    9.3.   Upon payment you must (that same day) collect a Barrel from the distillery location notified to you by Greater Whitsunday Distillery. You may not have a choice presented to you of Barrels. Risk and title passes to you upon payment.

    9.4.   You acknowledge that a Barrel is a large, heavy item and it is your sole responsibility to get the Barrel into your vehicle and secure it for transport. Greater Whitsunday Distillery employees cannot assist you with lifting the Barrel and Greater Whitsunday Distillery accepts no liability for personal injury or property damage which may be caused by you manoeuvring the Barrel, which you acknowledge is done entirely at your own risk.  

    9.5.   Refunds:

    9.5.1. Once placed, an Order for a Barrel cannot be changed or cancelled due to Your change of mind.

    9.5.2. Barrels come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a full refund for a breach of guarantees which cannot be excluded (for example if the Barrel fails to be of acceptable quality). Due to the limited number of Barrels we cannot offer a replacement Barrel. To the full extent permitted by law all other warranties, conditions and other terms (express or implied) are excluded.

    9.5.3. If we breach the consumer guarantees (for example if the Barrel is not of acceptable quality), please contact Greater Whitsunday Distillery customer service number. Refunds will not be provided if the damage has been caused by You or a third party (whether by accident or neglect) after risk has passed to you, or (subject to law) if the defect arises more than 12 months after purchase.

    9.5.4. Following Your call to customer services we may require You to provide photographic evidence of the fault, issue or concern You have in respect of the Barrel as well as proof of your date of purchase.

    9.5.5. Provided Greater Whitsunday Distillery is satisfied there was a breach of the consumer guarantees, (subject to law, within 12 months of purchase) a full refund will be provided.

    10.1 Exchange/refund policy for personalised labels:

    (a) Please ensure You check the text and spelling of Your personalised label carefully before submitting Your Order. We do not reprint labels, re-print Goods or provide a refund if You made a typing error in Your Order or if You change Your mind

    (b) Orders of Goods being personalised labels will only be considered eligible for a replacement or refund (at our option) if they either display a manufacturer's defect, there has been a breach of a consumer guarantee and/or the Goods delivered are different Goods from those stated in the Order (for example where the label printed does not match the Order You placed). Please call the customer service number and You may be asked to send photographic evidence of the issue in respect of the personalised label before we replace, or refund the price paid for, the Goods.
