Welcome to our Terms and Conditions which outline what you can expect from Griffiths Brothers Distillery and what we expect of you, as a visitor. We aim to exceed your expectations and ensure that you have a fantastic time with us.
Booking service: telephone and in person
We will endeavour to ensure that the information displayed on the website is current and accurate. However, we cannot be held liable for any errors. We reserve the right to change or withdraw the Events on the website without any prior notice. We cannot be held responsible for the accuracy of Event information posted by third parties in print or online.
Upon booking tickets for an Event, you warrant that:
1. you are 18 years old or over
2. all details you have provided for yourself, or other guests are correct to the best of your knowledge
3. the total amount for the booking is to be paid for in full five working days prior to the Event and not including the day of the Event itself (private group bookings), and at the time of booking for mixed group tours
4. For private group Events a deposit of £50 is required to secure your chosen date if less than 20 people and £100 if more than 20 people
. You will abide by these Terms and Conditions.
Conditions of entry to the Event:
1. All Events are subject to availability and may be altered or cancelled at any time. On arrival, you must show the confirmation email or gift vouchers for your party, or tour, as proof of payment is required prior to entry to the Distillery.
2. All visitors may be subject to an age check on arrival at the Distillery, so visitors should bring photo identification (‘ID’) with them. We operate a Challenge 21 policy. If our staff believe or suspect any visitor who wishes to consume alcohol is under 21, that visitor will be asked to produce photo ID. In that event, if you cannot produce valid photo ID, you will not be served, and you may be asked to leave the Distillery. Valid photo ID in this case can be a photo driving license (provisional and full) or passport. We cannot accept photos of these documents as proof of ID.
3. We cannot accept any guests under the age of 18.
4. Tour events involve the sampling and consumption of alcohol and as such we would encourage guests to use public transport, taxis or arrange drop offs and pickups where possible. Vehicles cannot be left overnight at Griffiths Brothers Distillery.

A deposit of £50 is required to secure an evening tour Event for less than 20 people and a £100 deposit is required to secure an evening tour Event for more than 20 people. Full outstanding payment is required five working days prior to the Event, not including the day of the Event itself.
