As a retailer of intoxicating beverages; we take our legal and social responsibilities very seriously. You must be 18 years of age or over to browse, use or purchase products from www.sippwine.com as defined by UK Law and may be required to provide identification at any point if using or consuming products. If you are under the age of 18, you must cease to use this website immediately.
You/Your: Applies to you, the buyer of goods.

Goods: Any products or services that are sold by us, to you.
Order: Any request made for goods to be sold to you.
Written/Writing: Communication made in the form of letter or email to or from company addresses or email addresses.
All orders are subject to availability.
A contract of sale will be said to exist upon written confirmation by us, to you, that we have accepted your order. The act of making an order on your part implies complete adherence to these terms and conditions. This contract is purely between you and us, is subject to UK Law and no other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
We reserve the sole right to cancel this contract of sale if we have insufficient stock, do not deliver in your area or in the event of incorrect advertising of the price of a product due to a typographical error or errors resulting from our suppliers. Should we do so, we will notify you immediately and will refund, within 30 days, to you any sums deducted from your debit or credit card that relate to that contract of sale.
Any images on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the images with as much accuracy as possible, the actual tones, colours and measurements may vary slightly from the digital images.
We reserve the right to refuse any orders at our sole discretion.
You may cancel your contract of sale with us at any time up to the seventh working day from the date you received the goods. You may amend your order up to 24 hours from the day it was originally sent to us, assuming it has not been dispatched. Any such actions should be done in writing either to our registered address found at the top of this document, or to our customer service team. No refund will be provided if you have already opened the bottles or have failed to notify us of a fault or damage within 24 hours of receiving the goods as detailed in our Returns and Refunds policy.
It is your responsibility to verify the contents of your order and to notify us of any problems within 24 hours of receiving said order. We are not obliged to offer any additional compensation for disappointment suffered as a result of a cancelled order.
Our delivery information can be found:
Whilst we endeavour to deliver as soon as possible, late deliveries may happen for reasons outside of our control. A late delivery does not constitute a breach of contract by us.
Late delivery does not constitute a breach of contract by the seller and no claim can be made by, or on behalf of, the buyer, whatever the cause. We cannot be held responsible if a delivery is not possible due to an incorrect address. It is the responsibility of the recipient to verify the contents of the delivery and inform us of any concerns by means of letter or telephone within 24 hours of receiving the package.
Due to the nature of fine wines and wines purchased in bond, delivery may be slightly longer than usual as they must be transferred from a bonded warehouse. Delivery information on these wines will therefore be made on a case-by-case basis.
All prices are in British Pounds (GBP) and are listed inclusive of VAT, unless otherwise specified.
Products are sold according to the price indicated on the site the day of the order. We have the right to change these prices when and if deemed necessary. Any changes in price will not affect existing contracts of sale between us and you.
These prices do not include the cost of delivery, with the exception of the sippBOX subscriptions, or other products such as experiences, which do not require delivery.
Promotional discount codes & cashback offers do not apply to our subscription or UK supplied champagne unless specifically stated and cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotional code or exchanged for money. However, some offers are available to be used on marked down items where indicated. Promotional codes must be used at our online checkout only and cannot be applied after an order has been processed. Sipp reserves the right to amend or withdraw these offers at any time.
All champagne offers:
Limited to a maximum of 24btls of Champagne per order/per person only. If you'd like to order more than 24btls of Champagne please phone 0203 131 0012 or email email@example.com for a quote. This offer can't be used in conjunction with any other promotional offers such as cashback promotions. Promotional discount codes are not eligible to be used in conjunction with any champagne offer. Sipp reserves the right to amend or withdraw these offers at any time. Sipp reserves the right to cancel - at its own discretion - any order which includes over 24 bottles of Champagne and uses a promotion code.
By ordering a sippBOX subscription, you agree that you will receive 3 bottles of wine and the associated content every month. Your membership will be automatically renewed at end of the period on a one month rolling basis at the cost of £29 per month including free delivery.
We may from time to time send you promotional offers that are relevant to your membership or to your personal preferences.
You are only eligible for one sippBOX subscription per household and we may choose to cancel orders of more than one sippBOX.
Your first sippBOX will be delivered within 3 working days of your order being placed (we aim to achieve next day whenever possible subject to placing your order before the cut-off time of 4pm) - subsequent sippBOXes are dispatched every month around the same time as the first purchase.
Delivery will be made via DHL, who will send you a tracking email and will also contact you via SMS on the day of delivery to give you an hour time slot for your delivery. You will also have the option to choose to have your delivery made to a neighbour, leave at a local parcel collection point or arrange for a different delivery date. We do not deliver to BFPO addresses or PO boxes. Deliveries to Northern Ireland, Scottish Highlands & UK Islands will be subject to a delivery surcharge at checkout.
Any relevant sippBOX subscription product cashback or voucher code discounts can only be applied to the first month payment only and will not be applied on any subsequent month’s payments.
sippBOX - products:
The packaging of the products may vary from that shown on images on our site.
All wines and information are subject to availability. Wine is an agricultural product and runs out from time to time. Occasionally we may substitute wines for a later vintage.
sippBOX - cancellation:
You can pause or cancel your subscription anytime during the month up until 5 working days before your renewal date. If you have not paused/cancelled your sippBOX subscription five working days before your renewal date, your next box will be despatched and we will proceed with the delivery. Once your sippBOX has been despatched, no refunds can be given.
To cancel your subscription, you can either email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or log into your account and manage your sippBOX preferences.
sippBOX - change of address:
We require seven working days’ notice by e-mail email@example.com if a different delivery address to that of the original is required.

Unless otherwise stated, voucher codes are only to be used once by new customers on their first purchase. You are not entitled to any further introductory vouchers or other introductory offers from sipp. Vouchers are non-transferable, may not be sold at auction and have no cash alternative. Where a voucher is used in breach of these conditions we reserve the right to refuse to supply wines to you or to make a charge equivalent to the value of the voucher against the payment card used on the contravening order or take steps to redeem the products as we deem appropriate. A charge may be made to cover the cost of recovery of the goods.
Any cashback or voucher code discounts can only be applied to the first month payment only and will not be applied on any subsequent month's payments.
Cashback offers can’t be used in conjunction with any other voucher code offers.
All sipp gift vouchers cannot be purchased using any discount codes, cashback offers or other promotions. Any orders using discount codes will be invalid and not issued.
Refunds and returns:
These can be found in full in our Returns and Refunds policy:
