Mezcalero Club LLC (“Maguey Melate”) is the owner of www.magueymelate.com (the “Website”). By using this Website you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agreed to be bound by these Terms of Service (the “Terms of Service”). If you do not accept these Terms of Service, do not use the website or service.

The Sale of Alcoholic Beverages

Maguey Melate does not sell alcohol to anyone under the age of 21. By using this Website you are representing that you are over the age of 21. Any alcohol purchased through this website or the mobile app must be shipped to someone over the age of 21. The shipping carrier will require proof of age for any shipment containing alcohol.

The Shipment of Alcoholic Beverages

Maguey Melate, LLC partners with a retailer with a valid retail liquor license in Washington DC. Maguey Melate will ship alcohol to other states if UPS or FedEx agree to ship alcohol to that state with age verification upon delivery. An adult must be available with proof of age to accept delivery of any shipment containing alcohol. The carrier will make three attempts to deliver the package to you before returning the package as unclaimed. You will be responsible for any additional shipping if you would like the product redelivered.

On-demand products take usually up to one week to fulfill and the date of the next shipment is listed on the bottom of the website. Subscription club boxes and clubmini boxes have scheduled ship dates. We will send an email at least one week before announcing the ship date and we will solicit for any address changes or vacation holds (we can wait to ship your box if you are out of town) which do not come with a fee. After making a purchase, the customer can request us to change the address, re-direct to a hold location, or post pone the shipment for up to 4 months and so long as we are notified 48 hours before the ship date, the change is free. Within 48 hours of shipping or once the package is en route, most changes will incur a fee between $12-22 paid by the customer unless Melate or UPS is at fault in any way. 

We highly recommend using UPS My Choice for receiving live alerts about your shipment. We also highly recommend shipping to an office or residence with front desks or UPS hold locations.

It is your responsibility to know whether you may receive shipments from out-of-state Retailers. Maguey Melate makes no representation as to any laws, rules or regulations regarding the sale, service, transportation or delivery of alcoholic beverages to you. Maguey Melate agrees to refund 100% of the contents if a package does not arrive due to restrictions within that state.

The purchaser of any alcoholic beverages from this site is representing that he or she is acting in compliance with his or her local and state laws regarding the purchase, transportation, and delivery of alcoholic beverages. The purchaser represents that he or she has obtained any required permits and/or permission, paid any required taxes and/or fees, is working through properly licensed intermediaries where required, is legally allowed to take possession of alcoholic beverages, and is legally entitled to take quantities ordered. Ownership for any product sold on this site passes to buyer upon our delivery to UPS or other common carrier. We make no representation to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import alcoholic beverages into any state outside California.

The laws regarding the shipment of alcoholic beverages between state lines are complex and constantly changing. Maguey Melate is unable to make any representation that the shipment of alcohol to any given state is legally permissible. Maguey Melate makes every effort to comply with state laws regarding the shipment of alcohol and may be required to cancel a shipment without advanced notice. A full refund will be provided to you if a shipment is cancelled by Maguey Melate. Unfortunately, state and federal law do not allow customers to return alcohol from outside of Washington DC. Thus all sales are final. Please contact customer service at info@magueymelate.com if you have any problems with your order.

Payment, Subscription, and Cancellation Terms

By placing an order you agree to allow Maguey Melate to immediately charge your credit card for the order amount. If you are purchasing a subscription, you authorize Maguey Melate to charge your credit card for the subscription price on the first of even months until the subscription is cancelled. The subscription plan you choose will auto renew at the same price unless we clearly communicate otherwise.

The deadline to cancel your next box is the 20th of even months. After the 20th, you are committed to receiving your next box and then your membership automatically cancels thereafter. That said, we often provide 2 days leeway on this date since we do not send automated reminders of upcoming renewals and want to be fair. If you absolutely do not wish to receive the next box and the deadline has passed, reach out to us to see about a partial refund at info@magueymelate.com

Returns and Damaged Items

If a bottle is broken, we will replace it or offer a refund. Please take photos of the damaged product immediately before opening further, email us at info@magueymelate.com,  and we will take great care of you! Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns due to complicated laws regarding shipping, state taxes,  and restocking alcohol. If something is not satisfactory, contact us and we will find a fair resolution.
