Stock Availability

All of Summerhall Distillery’s products and services are subject to availability.
If we are unable to fulfil your order we will contact you within 3 working days of receiving your order.

Pre-Ordering of Goods and Returns

Where a product is open for pre-order by us, with a delayed date of release, payment will be taken immediately upon receipt of a pre-order and the product will then be dispatched to you as soon as reasonably practicable after the release date. Should you wish to cancel your pre-order with us, you must notify us within 14 days after the date of the pre-order to be eligible for a full refund. 

In all other cases, we can offer a full refund of the product price only, on any products purchased by you that you are not completely happy with so long as the product is returned to us (at your expense) and that after inspection by our staff the product is found to be in its original, sale condition, and specifically that the seal has not been tampered with. In any other case, we will review returns on a case by case basis.


Cancellation of Tours

We regret that no refunds are available for tour bookings cancelled less than 24 hours prior to the pre-booked tour. Should a cancellation be made up to one week prior, but not less than 24 hours, of a pre-booked tour, a refund of 50% of the price paid will be applied. A full refund will be applicable in all other cases.


As all products and services are subject to availability, there will be no contract of any kind between you and us unless and until we actually process and despatch the goods to you. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods to you without giving any reason. At the moment that the goods are processed and despatched, and not before, a contract will be made between you and us. We cannot sell alcoholic products to anyone under 18. By using this website shop, you confirm that you are at least 18 years of age and of legal drinking age in your country of residence.
