Age Restrictions

It is against the law to sell or supply intoxicating substances to persons under 18 years of age in the UK. By placing an order you confirm that you are at least 18 years old. Our couriers are instructed to ensure the person signing for the goods is of the legal age to purchase alcoholic beverages and may request some form of ID to confirm this. In the event that this is not satisfied they are not permitted to leave the goods.

General

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase alcoholic beverages. It is an offence to sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 18 in the UK. When ordering and making a payment you are declaring that you are aged 18 or over. If your order is a gift please ensure the recipient is 18 years or older.

Hippo Beers reserves the right to amend these Terms and Conditions without notice at any time. The Terms and Conditions on the Hippo Beers website supercede all others.

All prices are quoted in pounds sterling. We aim to ensure the prices shown on our website are correct. In the event that a mistake does occur we will contact you to enquire whether you wish to proceed with the transaction.

Your order is an offer to Hippo Beers to buy the products in your order. When you place an order we will send you an automatic confirmation e-mail. This e-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the products ordered. We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale, when we dispatch the products to you.

Whilst every effort is made to supply all items listed online, there are instances where this may not be possible. In these cases we will contact you and offer a substitute. Hippo Beers will not be held responsible for any loss, consequential loss or damage to any individual or business which may have occurred from the use (or misuse) of any product or any information contained on this website.

We cannot accept responsibility for delivery failure if you provide an incorrect address and postal code or incorrect contact telephone number or do not ensure an adult is present to accept the delivery. Please check your information when placing your order.

Cancellations of Orders

We will cancel your order and refund any payment provided cancellation is in writing within 7 days after the receipt of the beers and that the beers are returned in good condition, unopened and sealed as required by the Consumer Protection from Distance Selling Regulations 2000 (as amended).

Deliveries must be signed for by a person of 18 years or older. If our couriers are in any doubt about the age of the recipient on delivery, they will request some form of ID. We reserve the right to cancel the delivery if the age and identity of the recipient is in doubt.
