EVERYWHERE WE GO...

www.masterofmalt.com is a website operated by Atom Supplies Limited (we or us), a limited company.

We are registered in England and Wales under company number 03193057 and we have our registered office and main trading address at First Floor Offices, Unit 5, Chapman Way, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England, TN2 3EF. You can contact us anytime on 01892 888376. We are registered for VAT and our VAT number is GB 662241553.
 

OUR CONTENT

The content on our website is provided for general information only. It is not intended to (and does not) amount to advice on which you should rely. Although we make reasonable efforts to update the information on our website, we make no representations, promises or guarantees that the content on our website is accurate, complete or up-to-date.

We may update our website at any time. Despite our best efforts, some of the content on our website may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update it.
 

PRICES

All prices shown on our website are subject to change without notice. The order total, the amount you will actually be charged, will be displayed before you place your order. You must check the order total before placing your order.

The product prices displayed on our website do not include delivery charges or any additional customs charges, levies or surcharges which are imposed by the country or state of delivery unless specifically stated at the point of sale (at the checkout).

All orders placed on our website are charged in pounds Sterling (GBP). Our website has the functionality to display approximate prices in other currencies but prices shown in currencies other than GBP are for illustrative purposes only and do not constitute an offer to sell any product at that price in that currency. These illustrative prices may differ from the actual amount which is charged to you. The order total, the amount you will actually be charged, will be displayed in GBP before you place your order.

We are not able to tell you exactly what you will pay in currencies other than GBP because exchange rates are changing continuously and because the exchange rate used by our payment providers may differ from the exchange rate which we use to calculate the illustrative price. Your credit or debit card company or your bank may also impose additional charges in respect of payments in foreign currencies and we do not know, and cannot estimate, what those charges (if any) will be.

If you elect to pay for your order by way of a bank transfer, you must ensure that your order is settled in full in GBP only and that the amount which you transfer to us (after currency conversion and after deduction of any bank or other payments service charges) is equal to the order total which is displayed in GBP before you place your order. Your bank or other payments service provider will be able to help you make this calculation.

LIMITATIONS ON OUR LIABILITY TO YOU

Nothing in these terms of use excludes or limits our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, or our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited under English law.

To the extent permitted by law, we exclude all conditions, warranties, representations or other terms which may apply to our website or any content on it.

We will not be liable to any user for any loss or damage, whether in contract, tort, breach of statutory duty or otherwise, even if foreseeable, arising under or in connection with use of, or inability to use, our website.

If you are a business user, please note that in particular, we will not be liable for:
  • loss of profits, business, or revenue;
  • business interruption;
  • loss of anticipated savings;
  • loss of business opportunity, goodwill or reputation; or
  • any indirect or consequential loss or damage.

If you are a consumer, you agree that you may not use our website in connection with any commercial purpose and that we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

We will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a virus, distributed denial-of-service attack, or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer equipment due to your use of our website or your downloading of any content on it.

We assume no responsibility for the content of websites linked on our website. Such links do not constitute approval by us of linked websites. We will not be liable for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them.

Different limitations may apply to any liability which arises as a result of the supply of any goods by us to you. These limitations and exclusions are set out in our Consumer Terms of Business.
 

CONTRIBUTIONS TO OUR WEBSITE

Whenever you make use of a feature that allows you to upload content to our website, or to make contact with other users of our website or members of the Master of Malt team, you must comply with the content standards set out in our Acceptable Use Policy.

You acknowledge and agree that you will pay us for any loss or damage which we suffer as a result of any breach of this requirement.

Any content you upload to our website will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. You retain all of your ownership rights in your content, but you are required to grant us permission to use, store and copy that content and to make it available to third parties.

The permission which you give us:
  • lasts forever;
  • applies to the whole world;
  • does not require that we pay you any royalty;
  • can be transferred by us to any third party;
  • allows us to use, copy, share, summarise, amalgamate with other material, display and perform that content in connection with the website and across different media.

The permission extends to allow us to use the content to promote our website and business.

Except where the law provides otherwise, we will not be responsible, or liable to any third party, for the content or accuracy of any content posted by you or any other user of our website.

For the avoidance of doubt, the views expressed by other users on our website do not represent our views or values.
 

VIRUSES

We do not guarantee that our website will be secure or free from bugs or viruses. You are responsible for configuring your information technology in order to access our website. You should always use your own virus protection software.

You must not misuse our website by knowingly introducing viruses, Trojan horses, worms, logic bombs or other material which is malicious or technologically harmful.

You must not attempt to gain unauthorised access to our website, the server on which our website is stored or any server, computer or database connected to our website. You must not attack our website via a denial-of-service attack or otherwise.

By breaching these rules, you commit a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. We will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will co-operate fully with them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use our website will cease.
 

LINKING TO OUR WEBSITE AND TO OTHER SITES

You may link to our website, provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal, is not defamatory and does not take advantage of our reputation. Our website must not be framed on any other site.

Where our website contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. We have no control over the contents of those sites or resources.
 

PRODUCTS WE MAKE

We manufacture drams, dram sets and independent bottlings from the Master of Malt Single Cask range and That Boutique-y Whisky Company, among many others.

We use factual statements to describe the source of the whisky or other contents of those products. For example, if we bottled a delicious single cask distilled at the outstanding Aberlour distillery then we would say exactly that. In that instance we would not be asserting any ownership of, or other rights in, the trademark "Aberlour", which we do not own.

The same goes for drams – the label describes the bottle we opened and decanted into drams, so a dram with "Glenfarclas 40" on it indicates that we opened up a sealed bottle of rich, dark, Christmassy Glenfarclas 40 Year Old and carefully decanted it into clean food-safe containers in a food-safe environment.

Any defects introduced by our manufacturing processes (bottling, re-bottling, dramming, labelling, waxing, etc) are not the responsibility of the third party which produces any whisky (or other raw material) which we have used.
 

NAMING CONVENTIONS

On our website, all whiskies (and other spirits), including independently-bottled products, appear according to the following naming convention: [Distillery name] [Age] [Batch] [Year] [cask number] [range] [(independent bottler)].
 

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

We may revise these terms of use at any time by amending this page. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we make, as they are legally binding on you.
 

APPLICABLE LAW

If you are a consumer, please note that these terms of use, their subject matter and formation, are governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have non-exclusive jurisdiction to hear disputes relating to these terms of use and your use of our website. However, if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.

If you are a business, these terms of use, their subject matter and their formation (including any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law. We both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
