9 Nature of the goods
9.1 Through our site we sell both new goods, and goods which are old (commonly called "vintage" goods).

9.2.1 of satisfactory quality.
9.2.2 fit for purpose; and9.2.3 match the description of them set out upon this Site.
9.3 Old or vintage goods are in essence second hand – they are not new, and they are supplied to us from various sources, including private sellers, dealers and such like. Where we offer old or vintage goods, whilst we will endeavour to check the provenance of the goods, we cannot guarantee absolutely that their contents are
what they purport to be upon their packaging, as the only way in which we could do this would be to open the goods and have them tested. Please also note that in the case of bottles, whilst we will endeavour to check their condition, their corks may have deteriorated in ways which are not immediately visible to us. As such, we
cannot guarantee that their contents will not leak, or that they have not been exposed to the air. In addition, we cannot guarantee that the contents will not have reacted with the cork or the air and "spoiled". Old or vintage goods are "sold as seen", and if upon opening the goods are found not to be what they purport to be, or
if they leak or the contents are "spoiled", this shall not provide a basis to reject or return the goods, and you will still be bound to pay for them.
9.4 Please note that the packaging of our goods may be different from that shown on the Site. While we try to make sure that the appearance of our goods matches that on our Site, there may be small differences between what you receive and what is displayed on our Site. All sizes, volumes, content, and capacities set out on our Site
have a small tolerance. The size of this tolerance is set by reference to applicable law. Where we include tasting notes, these are the opinion on the taster; your experience and perception may not match their experience and perception.
