As such, we cannot guarantee the condition of bottles on arrival sufficiently that they will be pristine enough to satisfy a collector's needs. Some scratches on labels and minor damage to the packaging is to be expected and we will not be able to accept refunds for purely cosmetic reasons unless labels are unreadable and therefore the contents and product details are unclear.
6.8. Please contact us if you have a specific requirement regarding the cosmetic appearance of the bottle labels in your order. We will consider these requests in the hope that we may be able to take extra precautions for you, but this does not constitute any guarantee from us.
