The Legal Info

We’ll try and make it as painless as possible.

We’re delighted you want to be part of our In the Welsh Wind journey as we move to our new premises, and we want to make sure you get the best experience from being a Zephyr. Tedious as the legal stuff is, you know it’s for the best – we’ve put together these ‘terms and conditions’ to make sure your Zephyr experience is great for you and for us.  We’ve tried to cut out the jargon and make it as straightforward as possible. Got any queries? Get in touch!

First – some Definitions – so we’re all on the same page

“You” – (also ‘you’, ‘your’ etc) – that’s right! The lovely person reading this. You’ve either bought or been gifted (lucky thing) a Zephyr Edit.

“Us” (also ‘our’ ‘we’ etc etc) – In the Welsh Wind, and our employees and agents

“Gin tasting voucher” A voucher redeemable through our online booking system for 2 people to attend our gin tasting experience at In the Welsh Wind’s premises.

“Gin making experience voucher” A voucher redeemable through our online booking system for 2 people to attend our gin making experience at In the Welsh Wind’s premises.

“Premises” These will be specified on your voucher and will normally be In the Welsh Wind, Tan y Groes, Ceredigion SA43 2HP; however, as at the launch of the Zephyr Edits, we are still in the process of creating our gin lab space at the new distillery, so it may be necessary for the experience to take place elsewhere. If the location changes, we will advise you at least 24 hours prior to the date you are booked to attend for your gin making or gin tasting experience.

“Private party voucher” A voucher redeemable by calling us at In the Welsh Wind to hold a private party at our Premises. The voucher will be for either 10 people (including you) or 20 people (including you) depending on whether you have a Distillers Edit or a Mavericks Edit.

“Vouchers” The general term for all the vouchers – some of the Ts and Cs apply to all of them, whether they’re for a gin tasting, a gin making or a private party.

“Zephyr” We use the name ‘Zephyr’ to mark you out as someone special to us. For us at In the Welsh Wind, a Zephyr is someone who has purchased a Zephyr Edit.

  1. Each Voucher will have a unique code and can only be used once (sorry!)
  2. Our Vouchers have no cash value (although they do look pretty) – and are not refundable. We can’t swap them for product either.

Receiving your Zephyr Edit package

  1. Your Zephyr Edit package, containing the Vouchers that relate to the Zephyr Edit you have purchased, and your Zephyr Card, will be posted out to you, normally on the day of purchase (if a working day) or the next working day of us receiving payment through our online shop. We will send the package via first class post.
  2. Early purchasers: our Zephyr Edits will be available to purchase in the pre-launch phase before our voucher packages are available. For early adopters – if you purchase your Zephyr Edit during the pre-launch phase (why, thank you!) the earliest date your Zephyr Edit voucher package will be posted to you is 23rd August 2019.

Booking your Gin Tasting and Gin Making Experiences

  1. Gin tasting experiences and gin making experiences are only available to over 18s. We do take our responsibilities seriously, so if you’re under 25 or appear to be under 25 (lucky you – what’s your secret?) please bring ID with you – a driving licence or passport is ideal.
  2. You must redeem your Gin Making Vouchers or Gin Tasting Vouchers by booking through our online calendar booking system.
  3. Our online calendar will offer a choice of dates on which to take part in your gin making or gin tasting experience. You will join others taking part in gin making experience at the same time. We’re afraid we cannot offer dates outside those specified on the booking system.
  4. Dates for gin making and gin tasting experiences are available on a first come first served basis and we cannot guarantee that any particular date will be available.
  5. You do not have to come for your gin making experience and your gin tasting experience on the same day – feel free to spread them out over a couple of different days.
  • We would prefer it if you could come along to your gin making experience and gin tasting experience within a year from the date of purchase of your Zephyr Edit. If you can’t come along within that year, we will do our best to accommodate you but may not be able to do so. If we are unable to accommodate you, we will not be able to offer a refund or to exchange the voucher for cash or product from either our online or retail shop. 
  1. If you have lost your physical vouchers (with the unique voucher code) you will be unable to book your experience online – we need the voucher code when you book. Please get in touch with us and we will do our best to help.
  2. It’s unlikely that you’ll come away from either gin tasting or gin making without having enjoyed a gin and tonic or 2 – so please make sure you have made suitable transport arrangements that mean you aren’t even tempted to drink and drive. The distillery premises are conveniently located to the main bus routes running between Aberystwyth, Carmarthen and Haverford West, and there are several local taxi companies who will be able to assist.

Booking your Distillery Party (Zephyr Distillers and Zephyr Mavericks Only)

  1. If you have purchased a Zephyr Distillers Edit or Zephyr Mavericks Edit, and wish to redeem your Distillery Party Voucher, please contact us directly, either by email or phone
  2. We will do our very best to accommodate your party at any date and time to suit you, although it will also need to be on a date that fits in with any commitments we have, and with any licensing, or other, restrictions beyond our control. Please bear in mind that we are a working distillery, so if you wish to hold your party during the day, we may be distilling in the background!
  • We would like you to hold your distillery party within a year of the date of purchase of your Zephyr Edit but will do our best to accommodate you if you cannot use your party voucher within that first year. However, if we are unable to agree a date and time with you, we will not be able to offer a refund or to exchange the voucher for cash or product from either our online or retail shop. 
  1. If for some reason, we are unable to accommodate your chosen date and/or time within a year of the date of your Distillery Party Voucher, we will prioritise your chosen date in the following year.
  2. While we think it’s extremely unlikely, there is always the small possibility that having agreed a date and time for your party, a genuine business reason means that we cannot honour that date and time. In these circumstances, we will let you know as soon as possible, and work with you to arrange a re-scheduled date and time. In these circumstances, we will take responsibility for any costs directly related to the party that are incurred as a result of the change in date and time. Our responsibility would not extend to any additional costs incurred by you and/or your guests – for example transport and/or accommodation costs.
  3. While the offer is for a distillery party for 10 people on the Distillers Edit and 20 people on the Mavericks Edit, we will be happy for you to extend your party at a cost of £50 per head up to a maximum of 100 people in total – please let us know when booking if you wish to extend your party and how many additional people will be coming.
  4. The distillery is an ‘adult’ space (although not ‘adults only’!). We anticipate that our distillery parties will usually be for over 18s. We take our responsibilities relating to the legal drinking age restrictions seriously, and would ask that any guests under the age of 25 (or fortunate enough to appear to be under the age of 25) bring ID with them so we can make sure we’re complying with our responsibilities. Under 18s are welcome to come along as part of a distillery party, but they will be included as part of the head count, and must bring a responsible adult with them who is prepared to supervise them throughout the party.
  5. Your party will have the use of our public space for 4 hours and you shouldn’t feel that you must leave at this point. The distillery space will remain open until our scheduled closing time, and you and your guests will be welcome to stay on. If your party extends beyond 4p.m. at the weekend (Friday, Saturday or Sunday), our doors may also be open to the public.
  6. You and your guests will be welcomed with a welcome cocktail/soft drink
  7. We will run a tab behind the bar for your party up to a maximum of £300 (Distillers Edit) or £600 (Mavericks Edit).
  8. Once this tab has been used up, you and your guests will continue to be able to purchase alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks from the bar at our advertised prices. Any guest who is
  9. Our bar will be stocked with a variety of In the Welsh Wind gin brands and premium tonic plus a selection of beers, lagers, wines, spirits and soft drinks. If you have any particular requests, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
  10. We aim to use local food suppliers where possible and will discuss the available food options from our list of preferred suppliers with you at the time of booking. Options that may be available include wood-fired pizza, Mexican street food, BBQ using locally sourced meats and salads, and Asian cuisine. We will give you a complete list of what is available at time of booking.
  11. We will, as far as possible, provide a food offering suitable to the dietary requirements of your guests – please advise us of any allergies or intolerances, or of any vegetarian/vegan or other dietary requirements when you get in touch to discuss your party. If you do not mention any dietary requirements or issues at least 2 weeks before the date of the party, we cannot guarantee that we or our suppliers will be able to accommodate this (although, as ever, we’ll try our best).
  12. We all love a party, and we’ll work hard to make sure you and your guests have a great time, but it goes without saying that if things get out of hand, or if you or any of your guests are abusive to our staff or cause damage to our property, we reserve the right to bring the party to an end immediately and to insist that you and your guests leave. We reserve the right to invoice you for the full cost of the party, and for any damage caused to our premises. In the event of criminal activity taking place during the party (including, but not restricted to the use of drugs on the premises, assaults or criminal damage) we reserve the right to inform the police, and to press charges.
  13. We’re sure you’re going to have a brilliant time with us at In the Welsh Wind and won’t want to leave – but please do make sure that you make arrangements for safe departure from the premises at the end of your party. We do not condone drinking and driving in any circumstances! We’re conveniently situated on the main bus route between Aberystwyth, Newcastle Emlyn/Carmarthen and Haverford West and there are several local taxi companies who would be delighted to help.

Zephyr Members Card

  1. The Zephyr Members Card will be sent to you with your Zephyr Edits package. It may look like an unassuming business card, but it opens up the opportunity to access our monthly offer every time you come and visit us In the Welsh Wind. It could be a free coffee, brewed up in our state of the art (did you know that gin distillers make awesome baristas?); it could be a generous discount on one of latest gins. Our offers will evolve as we grow and develop and as our space lends itself to different uses.
  2. Our monthly offers will only be available at the distillery – come along, shoot the breeze with us and take advantage!

Membership of our Zephyr Edit Email list

  1. Part of being one of our Zephyrs is our Zephyrs Edit email newsletter. This exclusive mailing list will keep our Zephyrs up to date with the latest news from the distillery and exclusive offers.
  2. In order to comply with data protection requirements, we need your explicit consent to add your email to this mailing list. We’ll send out information about how to sign up to our Zephyr Edits mailing list with your welcome information. If you’re purchasing as a gift, please pass this information on to the lucky recipient.
  1. We reserve the right to change these Terms and Conditions as necessary and without notice.
  2. In the event of any dispute (although we do hope there won’t be) the law of England and Wales will apply.

Zephyr Edit FAQs

Am I investing in In the Welsh Wind?

By purchasing a Zephyr Edit, you are not investing in In the Welsh Wind in the traditional sense. There is no equity or shares involved in your purchase and you aren’t receiving a stake in the business. However, your purchase gives us the opportunity to grow and develop our business; hopefully you’ll be able to visit us and see what you’re contributing to.

When will my Zephyr Edit package arrive?

If you purchase a Zephyr Edit package during the pre-launch phase, it will be posted out to you on 23rd August 2019. if you purchase your Zephyr Edit after 23rd August 2019, we anticipate posting the Zephyr Edit packages our either on the day or purchase or the next working day. We’ll be sending them to you by first class post.

Can I take my gin making experience and gin tasting experience on different days?

Yes, you can take your gin making and gin tasting experiences on different days – simply book in using your voucher codes using the online booking system.

Can Under 18s attend a Distillery Party?

We expect that our Distillery Parties will mainly be attended by those over 18. We are a working distillery and do not have a huge range of facilities for children – although our woodland is great for exploring. However, if you would like to bring any under 18s with you, we will be happy to welcome them to the distillery as your guests and part of your party headcount. We do ask that under 18s are supervised at all times by a responsible adult, and that you respect the licensing rules that apply.
