Returns Policy

Here at KWM Wine & Spirits we want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you decide that the product you purchased is no longer required, not the right item or you simply wish to return it you can do so. We accept returns for exchange or a refund within 30 days of the original purchase date providing the product is unused, in its original packaging and accompanied by a receipt. The goods need also to be packed securely to avoid damage on the way back. The packaging you received them in would be ideal to ship them back it if you still have it available.
