Frequently Asked Questions

How can we help?



Can I cancel my order?

We completely get it, we change our minds too! While we wish could, once an order is placed, we are unable to alter or cancel it at this time. We hope to have a cancellation window one day in the future.

Should the item(s) not work out, make sure to exchange for a preferred style or return for a refund. As a reminder, domestic return shipping is free.

I have a tree nut allergy, do your products contain nuts?

Our Mac Liqueur and Barrel-aged Mac. both contain macadamia nuts.

Our gin products are distilled with macadamia nuts. During distillation, the proteins that contain the allergens are removed. Macadamia oils have a very high boiling point, which means that they don’t vaporize during the process. As a result, they are left behind and do not pass through.spirit.

Are your products gluten-free?

Yes, all of our range spirits are Gluten Free.

During distillation, components with lower boiling points are separated from those with higher boiling points.

Gluten, like all other proteins, has a boiling point that’s very high. This means that it doesn’t vaporize during this distillation process. As a result, it’s left behind and does not pass through in the process of distillation.

What is the shipping policy?
