DELIVERY AND RETURNS

We are still accepting and fulfilling orders as usual, but please allow 3-5 working days for your order to be delivered.

We use APC and Royal Mail for all orders within Mainland UK. All items are usually delivered within 3 - 5 working days, although we endeavour to dispatch earlier than this where possible. Please see below for more information.

Refunds will not be issued in the instance of an order being placed outside the conditions of the delivery parameters stated on the checkout page.

If your order contains alcohol, you will receive an email from APC when it is dispatched with details about how to track your parcel.

If you are not in when your parcel is delivered, a card will be left at your address with details about how you can rearrange delivery. During periods of Covid-19 restrictions, this card service may be suspended without warning. Therefore, if your parcel is not delivered when you expect, we recommend using your tracking number to check if delivery has been attempted.

DELIVERY COSTS AND TIMES

Orders must be received by 3pm Monday-Friday to be processed the same day. Any item ordered after 3pm, at Bank Holidays or the weekend will be processed the next working day. Whilst we aim to dispatch all orders as quickly as possible, please allow 3-5 working days for delivery.

Orders Containing Alcohol

All orders containing alcohol are dispatched via APC, except those that qualify for local delivery (see below).

The delivery costs detailed below apply to an order of alcohol weighing up to 20kg in total. You can find details of the weight of individual items in the “Additional Information” section on the relevant product page. Orders weighing more than 20kg will incur an additional charge of £4.60 up to each additional 10kg

ENGLAND AND WALES MAINLAND (EXCLUDING LONDON) - £10.15

LONDON - £12.10

SOUTHERN AND CENTRAL SCOTLAND - £14.10

NORTHERN SCOTLAND - £19.95

LOCAL DELIVERY

FAVERSHAM (ME13 Postcode area) – FREE

ME and CT POSTCODE AREAS (Maidstone, Medway, Swale, Canterbury, Thanet, Dover, etc) - £5.00 flat rate (no additional charge for extra weight)

We regret that at present we are unable to ship alcohol to destinations outside the British Mainland due to the prohibitively high costs involved. This includes:

  • Northern Ireland
  • Scottish Islands
  • Channel Islands
  • Isle of Man
  • Isle of Wight
  • BFPO Addresses
  • International Destinations

Orders Not Containing Alcohol

Orders not containing alcohol, such as clothing and merchandise, and weighing less than 2kg in total will be dispatched by Royal Mail at a cost of £3.10.

As they are delivered by Royal Mail, such orders can be dispatched to any location in the UK.

Orders not containing alcohol but weighing more than 2kg are subject to the same costs and conditions as orders that do contain alcohol.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU PLACE AN ORDER 

As soon as you place an order, you will receive an order confirmation email from Mad Cat Brewery Ltd. and you will receive another email from APC with a parcel tracking number when it has been dispatched. Please note that the tracking number included on this dispatch email may take a few hours to show in the courier’s system so don’t worry if it doesn't show you the details of delivery immediately.

If you are not in when delivery is made a card will be left with contact details for you to arrange another delivery. (During periods of Covid-19 restrictions, this card service may be suspended without warning. Therefore, if your parcel is not delivered when you expect, we recommend using your tracking number to check if delivery has been attempted). Should further delivery attempts fail, the goods will be returned to us and a full refund will be issued to you, minus the cost of delivery.

All goods require a signature from an adult who is over the age of 18. We will not deliver alcohol to anyone under the age of 18.

RETURNS AND REFUNDS

To return merchandise goods, the customer is liable for all return shipping costs except in cases where goods are faulty, in which case they will be reimbursed to the customer. Once the goods are received back at our premises, and in a saleable condition, a refund will be processed for the goods, minus applicable shipping costs, unless the return concerns faulty or damaged goods. Please return merchandise items in their original packaging to;

Mad Cat Brewery, Brogdale Farm, Brogdale Road, Faversham, Kent, ME13 8XU

Customers are responsible for ensuring products are returned in a saleable condition. Any returned items which are received open, broken or past their Best Before date will not be refunded, except in cases where goods were received by the customer in a faulty state.

If there is a problem with your order, items are faulty, or you wish to return goods for any other reason, please contact us at info@madcatbrewery.co.uk or by calling 01795 597743.

If an attempted delivery is obviously damaged, you are within your rights to refuse the order, at which point it will be returned to us. If you choose to do this, please contact us at info@madcatbrewery.co.uk and we will issue either a resend of the order if every item is in stock, or a full refund, whichever is preferable.

Refunds will not be issued in the instance of an order being placed outside the conditions of the delivery parameters stated on the checkout page.

We cannot accept responsibility for delivery failure if you provide an incorrect address and postal code or incorrect contact telephone number. Please check this information when placing your order.

As our online gift vouchers are issued as a code (sent automatically when placing the order) we are unable to offer a refund on these purchases.

This does not affect your statutory rights.
