The Apostle Membership Terms and Conditions

The apostle level of membership is open to anyone over the age of 21. This membership does not expire unless The Gin Lounge chooses to withdraw the scheme. By becoming a gin apostle, you are agreeing to us sending you email communications regarding The Gin Lounge products and services. Apostle members can ‘resign’ at any point by either email request to info@theginlounge.com or by choosing the unsubscribe option on any TGL email communication. This membership is not associated with the full membership program and does not include the benefits that full members are entitled to. Apostle members can choose to become full members at any time and are entitled to a one-off 10% discount off full membership.

The Gin Lounge Membership Terms and Conditions

Membership is on an annual basis and starts when the member activates their account online at www.theginlounge.com/members. It is the responsibility of the member to use their free tasting vouchers within their 1 year membership period. These will not be accepted outside of the 12 month membership period. Tasting vouchers are valid for any £20 tasting event during the 1 year membership period. If the member would like to use the voucher for a more expensive tasting, a supplement will be chargeable which will be the difference between the voucher’s value (£20) and the cost of the tasting. Festival vouchers are valid for any single session of any TGL Festival during the 1 year membership period. They entitle the member to entry to the event and all applicable benefits of general entry. This does not include masterclasses, ‘Top shelf tipples’ or other special events during the festival, unless advertised. Vouchers are only for use by the member. When using one of their free vouchers, the member must book onto a tasting 14 days prior to the event taking place. They must book into a festival 28 days prior to the event. Free tasting and festival vouchers are not refundable and have no cash value. Where a member has booked onto a tasting or festival, and can no longer make the date, we may transfer their booking at our discretion dependent on availability. 10% discount is only for the use by the named member. The member can buy tickets for friends and family using their membership but must not allow others to use their membership. Any member found to be allowing others to log in and/or purchase items or events through the website will have their membership privileges revoked until further notice. 10% discount does not include items already discounted or Early-Bird ticket sales. It does not include any gin trips except at The Gin Lounge’s discretion. Members must conduct themselves with decorum at all events. We reserve the right to revoke a member of their privileges due to errant behaviour.
