House of Après — FAQ/T&C

FAQ/T&C

Hopefully you find the information you are looking for here, but if not then get in touch via our 'contact page'. 


What is Après all about? 

Dictionary definition: APRÈS = coming after in time, typically specifying a period after an activity e.g. Après Ski. 

So as Après is French for after, put literally in our terms it can relate to what you do when you leave the snowy mountain piste, or when you are raving or even behaving at the end of an epic day, having fun and being happy is the key.


As a company, how green are we? 

Mother nature is a lovely lady, so we try and look after her and do what we can to be environmentally friendly i.e. our t-shirts are industry approved by the Fair Wear Foundation / Organic Blended content standard. Our bottles can be recycled. We encourage all to recycle so the packaging we use is fully recyclable and we won't be sending you any nasty little poly bags. 


What's the deal with delivery and shipping? 

We post it as soon as possible, using professional delivery companies and aim to deliver within the stated time frames. 

Please check item descriptions for delivery costs. 

Please see AGE RESTRICTIONS for all terms relating to the purchase and delivery of our alcoholic product(s). 


I want to return my purchase, what do I need to know and do? 

Ok, no worries about that, but the following conditions must be met and if all is good then we will offer the refund or exchange; 

Returns and exchanges must be sent within 28 days of receiving the package. Items returned after this date will not be refunded or exchanged. 

We are responsible for the product up until acceptance of delivery. Likewise for any returns it is the responsibility of the customers until delivery is accepted at House of Après.    

We ask that you email info@houseofapres.com to state the reason and to state whether an exchange or refund is required. 

Item/s must be in a perfect resalable condition. 

Ideally if you can include a printed copy of the order confirmation which was sent to you by email then that would be helpful. 

We do not cover the cost of shipping of a returned item, however we will not charge you for new postage if it is an exchange. 

If all conditions are met please send the item/s to: House of Après, Finstock, Rock Hill, Georgeham, Braunton, United Kingdom, EX33 1JW. (Not our home address, so please don't pop in for a cuppa).
