My good(s) are faulty/damaged, can I return them?

Regarding any food, beverage, drink or spirit goods, if there is a problem with your order, items are damaged or faulty, or you wish to return goods for any other reason, please contact us on hello@thegincooperative.com before attempting to return them. We reserve the right to collect damaged or faulty products for inspection or may request evidence of damaged or faulty goods. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Where applicable, return shipping will be paid by the customer except in cases where goods are damaged or faulty, in which case the customer will be reimbursed. Once good(s) are received back and verified, a refund will be processed for the goods, minus applicable shipping costs, unless the return concerns faulty or damaged goods.
