If your gift is urgent, you can download a PDF gift certificate (see point 6 lower down this page) to print out and fill in to present to them in person.

1. You can opt to have the Gift Membership delivered in two ways:
a) Direct to the recipient – please ensure that you complete your own details in the billing address section at checkout and the recipients details in the shipping address.
b) To yourself – to allow you to personally present the membership box as a gift. In this instance, please only complete your own details at checkout. Please be assured that the recipient will not be made aware of the gift until they receive it.

2. After purchase you will receive an email confirmation.

3. Membership processing takes around four working days, during which time we will send a membership pack along with any other purchase you may have made. Please note that as bottles are fulfilled at a different location to gift membership packs you will receive two separate deliveries.

4. Once they receive their membership pack, this will include a code to activate their membership online, providing access to our online members’ area, as well as to Members’ Rooms and to take part in tastings and events. Once membership is activated, they will receive their membership card in the post in around four working days.

5. Each month they will receive regular updates by email about Outturn bottle releases, events, tastings and much, much more. They can also keep up to date with what’s happening on social media too!

6. You can also download a PDF gift certificate to print out and fill in to present to them in person.
