How can I get in touch?

I want to buy a gift subscription for my friend/parent/partner/boss - how do I do this?
What an excellent gift idea! You can head to https://whiskyloot.com/pages/gifts to get started. You can select the period of your gift subscription (3 months, 6 months, or 12 months), then the method of delivery. You can either email them a voucher to redeem their subscription, or have the first box sent as a surprise (and then the recipient can redeem the remaining boxes.)
How does an Email Surprise Work?
Once you place your order, we create a personalised e-gift voucher for you that includes your name, the recipients name, and the personalised message you provide to us in the checkout process. We then email you a copy of this voucher, so you can forward it to the recipient or print it out and give it in person. The recipient then follows the instructions on the voucher to begin their subscription, which can be done on our website at https://whiskyloot.com/pages/redeem-email.
How does a Gift Surprise Work?
Once you place your order, we put together your recipient’s first box which includes three bottles, a tasting card, a tasting journal and a personalised letter with their unique code + instructions on how to redeem their remaining boxes, which they can do at https://whiskyloot.com/pages/redeem-email. We sent order confirmation + shipping notifications to your email, so the arrival of the box is a surprise!
Double check you have their address correct, and please take note of the tracking number which will be sent to you once the gift ships. All our parcels require a signature upon delivery (so the whisky arrives safely!), so if your recipient is not home, a slip will be left. Any return or redelivery fees due to incorrect shipping information will be charged to the gift sender.
What does my gift recipient get?
Once your recipient redeems their gift, each month they will receive a beautiful bespoke presentation box, with three custom-designed glass bottles containing hand-selected whisky. Our team of whisky sommeliers create tasting notes each month which accompany each box, so your recipient can understand and appreciate the aroma, taste + unique finish each whisky has to offer. Your recipient will also receive a beautiful tasting journal with their first delivery, so they can make notes + track their whisky adventure.
Are there any additional charges or fees to buying an email gift, or a surprise gift?
No! Once you purchase the gift, you are all set. If a surprise box is returned to us due to incorrect address or it is not collected from the post office in time, there is a $16 return fee, and a $10 fee to redeliver your gift to the correct address. Aside from this, there are no additional fees to send a gift.
REDEEMING MY GIFT SUBSCRIPTION
I got a voucher for a gift subscription! Yay! What do I do now?
Awesome! We are so excited that you are joining us. Simply head to https://whiskyloot.com/pages/redeem-email and follow the prompts to enter your details, and we’ll send out your first box! Your first box is sent within 5-7 business days, and the next box in your subscription will be sent the following month in our shipping window of the 22nd - 27th. So if you redeem your voucher on the 20th June, you will get your first box by the 27th June, and your next box around the 25th July.
I got a surprise whisky box with a gift subscription! Yay! What do I do now?
Awesome! Welcome to the club! We are really excited to guide your on your whisky adventure. Please follow the instructions on the letter included in your box, and head to https://whiskyloot.com/pages/redeem-email to redeem your remaining boxes. Please note that our cut-off for our monthly subscriptions is the 1st of the month, and monthly subscriptions are shipped on the 22nd - 27th of each month. So if you redeem your gift on the 3rd July, your next box will be sent in our August shipping window.
Why do I need to enter my credit card details to redeem my gift?
Our current subscription service requires all subscribers to enter their credit card details as part of the redemption + subscription process. So long as you enter the unique code sent to you on your gift card or gift letter, there will be no charge, and no charges in the future. Your personal information is stored securely - your privacy is of paramount importance to us. If you have any questions about this don’t hesitate to get in touch at email@example.com.
What am I getting each month?
Each month you will receive a beautiful bespoke presentation box, with three custom-designed glass bottles containing hand-selected whisky. Our team of whisky sommeliers create tasting notes each month which accompany each box, so you can understand and appreciate the aroma, taste + unique finish each whisky has to offer. You will also receive a beautiful tasting journal with their first delivery, so they can make notes + track their whisky adventure.
How do I know what whisky I am getting?
Each month’s box comes to you with a unique tasting card with information about each of the three whiskies. You will receive an email around the 10th of the month with information about that month’s box, so you can get excited!
I have questions!
No problems! You can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call 9.30am - 1.30pm on (02) 8055 3724, and our dedicated customer service team will be more than happy to assist you.
