1.1          These terms and conditions as amended from time to time (“Conditions”) together with a related Shopify order on our website www.fynoderee.com constitute a contract between Fynoderee Limited, trading as The Fynoderee Distillery (“Fynoderee”) and you (“you” or “Member”) in connection with your membership of the Fynoderee Founders Whiskey Club (“Contract”) to the exclusion of any other terms.

1.2          The submission of your Shopify order (“Order”) online constitutes an offer by the Member to become a Member of the Fynoderee Founders Whiskey Club in accordance with these Conditions. You are responsible for ensuring that the terms of the Order are complete and accurate.

1.3          The Order shall only be deemed to be accepted when Fynoderee issues a Welcome Pack (defined below) in respect of each Order, at which point the Contract shall come into existence.

1.4          Subject to clause 10.4, the Contract constitutes the entire agreement between the parties.  The Member acknowledges that they have not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by or on behalf of Fynoderee which is not set out in the Contract.

1.5          By placing an Order you acknowledge and confirm that you are at least 18 years old. Fynoderee will not accept Orders from, nor arrange delivery of Whiskey to, any person under the age of 18 at the date of the Contract. If the Delivery Location (defined below) is specified to be an Overseas Delivery (defined below), then by placing an Order you acknowledge and confirm that you are at least of the minimum legal age to purchase alcohol in accordance with the laws of that country and you will be liable to additional delivery charges and related taxes and duties as detailed below in clauses 3.2 and 6.3.

2              GOODS

2.1          The goods to be supplied by Fynoderee to Members under this Contract in connection with membership of the Fynoderee Founders Whiskey Club will consist of liquid bottled by Fynoderee taken from casks of whiskey (“Casks”) produced by the Fynoderee at The Fynoderee Distillery (“Whiskey”) in accordance with this Contract.

2.2          It is intended by Fynoderee that the first bottles of Whiskey will be filled from the Casks within a time period determined at the discretion of the Fynoderee following a date being no less than 3 years and 3 months and 3 days of the date the liquid is put to Cask and Fynoderee will then bottle the Whiskey to meet the Fynoderee Founders Whiskey Club requirements within 2026.

2.3          Membership of the Fynoderee Founders Whiskey Club entitles the Member to receive:

3              DELIVERY

3.1          Fynoderee shall ensure that each delivery of the Whiskey is accompanied by a delivery note which shows the date of the dispatch from The Fynoderee Distillery, all relevant Member and Fynoderee reference numbers and the type and quantity of the Goods.

3.2          Fynoderee shall deliver the Whiskey to the location set out in the Order (“Delivery Address”), or to such other location as the Member may notify Fynoderee in writing by emailing to founders@fynoderee.com at any time, at the discretion of Fynoderee, but before the end of 2026, accompanied by an appropriate delivery note.    Delivery to an address in the United Kingdom (including Northern Island, Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man) (“Domestic Delivery”) is included in the Membership Price. 

If the Member requires delivery of the Whiskey other than a Domestic Delivery (“Overseas Location”) this will have to be by separate agreement with Fynoderee at the time of dispatch and associated delivery charges to be paid to Fynoderee prior to dispatch by the Member.   Some locations will not be possible for delivery of the Whiskey due to issues such as customs clearance not being possible but this will be discussed with the Member at the relevant time, if issues are identified.   It shall be the full responsibility of the Member to pay in full any taxes, duties and other relevant sums due in connection with the importation of Whiskey to any Overseas Location.   All such shipments to Overseas Locations are also at the complete risk of the Member and if the goods are seized or impounded by any relevant authority, it is for the Member to resolve the effective delivery of the same, albeit Fynoderee will endeavour to assist in the effective delivery, provided this is at the Member’s cost and expense.

Alternatively, all purchases can be collected from The Fynoderee Distillery, Parsonage Road, Ramsey, Isle of Man.

3.3          Delivery of the Whiskey shall be completed on the arrival of the Whiskey at the Delivery Location, whereby title to and risk in the Whiskey shall pass to the Member. In the event that a bottle is broken in transit prior to delivery, the member must promptly notify Fynoderee in writing, and in any event no later than seven days after the date of delivery and provided prompt notification is received within the time period stated, Fynoderee shall arrange for delivery of a replacement and may request that the Member return the broken bottle of Whiskey at the cost of the Fynoderee.

3.4          Fynoderee shall not be liable for any delay or failure in delivery of the Whiskey that is caused by any event beyond its reasonable control, which by its nature could not have been foreseen, or, if it could have been foreseen, was unavoidable including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or default of subcontractors (“Force Majeure Event”) or which is caused by the Member’s failure to provide Fynoderee with adequate delivery instructions, a correct delivery address or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Whiskey.

3.5          In the event of an irremediable Force Majeure Event (including but not limited to total destruction of the Whiskey and/or the Casks) no Member shall have the right to terminate this Contract and/or obtain a refund of the Membership Price (defined below) whether pro-rata or otherwise, but Fynoderee retains the right to either (i) refund such proportion of the Membership Price that relates to Whiskey yet to be supplied or (ii) deliver alternative bottles of Whiskey to Members.

3.6          If the Member fails to accept delivery of the Goods within two attempts at delivery by Fynoderee, then Fynoderee shall return the Whiskey to its premises and attempt to contact the Member by email or telephone to arrange delivery (“Last Attempt”). In the event of contact with the Member, any further delivery costs for such re-delivery of the Whiskey shall be borne by the Member. If contact is not made within 90 days following the Last Attempt then Fynoderee shall be entitled to dispose of the undelivered Whiskey as it sees fit without liability to the Member and Fynoderee shall be released from any future liability to deliver Whiskey to that Member.

Should a Member die or, by reason of illness or incapacity (whether mental or physical), is incapable of managing his or her own affairs or becomes a patient under any mental health legislation, Fynoderee shall continue to supply the Whiskey to the Delivery Location, but shall recognise instructions in connection with the Contract (including but not limited to any amendment to a Delivery Location) only from the personal representatives, or those persons duly authorised to act on behalf of, the Member.
