INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAFE STORAGE AND CONSUMPTION
Our natural products require special care in their storage and maintenance, following the general rules for the storage and maintenance of food and beverages.
Pay attention to the following instructions:
- Before or after unsealing the products, store them in a cool and shady place without humidity, as exposure to sunlight, may cause deterioration.
- Alcoholic products, due to the alcohol content, do not have an expiration date for the period they remain sealed. However, once unsealed, always tightly close the bottle cap after each use to prevent the content from evaporating.
- The glass bottles used by our company are approved and suitable for the proper storage of alcoholic products. Do not transfer their content to another bottle or container you may have.
- Since we use only natural raw materials such as fruits and herbs, you may find sediments in the bottom part of the bottle, especially in wine products. This is entirely normal and does not indicate any product alteration.
- Do not consume alcoholic products if you have not reached the legal age limit for your country.
- Consume alcoholic products responsibly without compromising your health.
- All our product packaging is recyclable after use, so we encourage you to recycle them to protect the environment.
You can cancel your purchase at no cost if the cancellation is requested before the shipment. In case you wish to cancel your order after it has already been executed, you are only responsible for the relevant shipping costs, even if the initial shipment did not include transportation charges.
If a product is defective, damaged or broken, you must contact us within 2 days of receiving it to be replaced immediately and at no cost to you. Replacement can be made with the same or a different product. Alternatively, your account may be credited, or a refund (credit card refund or cash return to a given account number) may be made as soon as possible.
Customers do not have the right to return products, as the safe maintenance and storage of the products are critical.
The Company is not responsible for the failure to fulfill its obligations in case of force majeure, meaning under conditions that cannot be foreseen and prevented, such as floods, earthquakes, fires, strikes, epidemics, emergency prohibitions by the State, and any other event that could not reasonably be anticipated and creates problems in the proper execution of the Company’s obligations.
