The “Terms”

By using this website you agree to be bound by these Terms.  The Terms apply to all users of this website, and to all purchases of goods and services from Dancing Sands Distillery (we/us).  If you do not accept these Terms, then please refrain from using this website.

We may amend the Terms at any time by updating them on this website. The amended Terms will take immediate effect upon publication, and by continuing to access the website you agree to be bound by the amended Terms. 

Your Information

In order to purchase products you will be asked to provide some personal information (e.g. name, delivery address, phone number, email address). Please refer to our Privacy Policy to review our policy on these matters.  


We remain the owner of the product that we supply to you until we have received payment in full for the product, including AfterPay orders.  All prices are listed in New Zealand dollars and must be paid for in New Zealand dollars.  All prices include GST.  No contract for the sale and purchase of products will be formed, or variation or cancellation made, until we confirm acceptance of your order, variation, or cancellation.

We reserve the right to update prices at any time, which may update real time prices at checkout. Prices may also vary between Dancing Sands Distillery sellers.

The product is at your risk as soon as it is delivered to you.  Delivery will be deemed to have been made when it is left at the address nominated in your order, or when a “Card to Call” delivery slip has been left at that premises.  All our shipments are sent with ‘Signature Required’ service. 

We supply premium products and endeavour to ensure that these leave the Distillery in good condition.  We use third parties to deliver our products so please contact us immediately if our product has been damaged in transit.

We will re-deliver, replace or refund the product (at our option) if the delivery was incorrectly addressed but we take no such responsibility if you gave an incorrect or insufficient address, or if there was no delivery due to the premises having no safe access point.

Cancellations & changes

Should you wish to change or cancel your order, you must contact us as soon as possible.  We generally ship all orders within 24 hours of receipt and we cannot change or cancel an order after it leaves the Distillery.

Delivery & Returns

Please see our Delivery & Returns page for information.


You may register with us when purchasing items using this website. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account username and password, and for preventing unauthorised access to your account. You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password, so please take all necessary precautions to ensure that the username and password is kept confidential and secure.

Please inform us immediately if you have any reason to believe that your username and/or password has become known to anyone else, or are being, or are likely to be, used in an unauthorised manner. Your information will be used for management purposes, to process your order (and any future orders you may make), to enforce any legal or other rights we may have against you in any manner that we see fit.  Please contact us if you wish to delete your customer account. 

Legal Age

By law we cannot sell or supply alcohol to persons under the age of 18 years. When you place an order for alcohol you confirm that you, and the recipient, are both aged 18 years or over.  Proof of ID may be requested at the time you place your order or at the time of delivery.
