If you continue to browse and use this website, you are agreeing to comply with and be bound by the following terms and conditions of use, which together with our privacy policy govern Stretton Oak Tub’s relationship with you in relation to this website. If you disagree with any part of these terms and conditions, please do not use our website.

Customer Orders/Processing

Orders can be placed through our website and will be processed within 24 hours of receipt.

We cut and paint all our oak whisky barrels to order and will email as soon as we get your order to advise on delivery timescale.  All our barrels have originally contained whisky unless specifically specified.  Most orders are dispatched within 3 working days and with you within 7 working days.  Should you not be happy with the timescales, please contact us and we will endeavour to get it to you as quick as possible, or if we are unable to meet you requirements we will issue an immediate refund.

We sell our goods for the specific description, i.e. planters are for planting in, water butts for catching water via a drainpipe etc.  If you have specific requirements then it is your responsibility to contact us prior to ordering and then ensure that notes are put on your order with your requirements.  If you do not put these requests in when ordering if the goods do not fit the purpose you intend to use them for, then you are responsible for the delivery costs both ways if you wish to return them.

All our goods are made from recycled barrels, therefore ever barrel is different, when ordering more than one item we try to find similar looking items, but if you order again in future we won’t be able to match to what you have had previously.  As each barrel is individual the sizes are approximate, if you require specific sizes it is your responsibility to contact us prior to ordering to ensure that we can meet your requirements, our measurements are the external measurements and the height measurement is the outside edge (always remember that the wood can be up to 2cm thick and this reduces the internal diameter)  Sometimes the barrels will have a cork in the base, and also quite a few have painted ends but this does not effect the use of them.

With water butts these should be put into position straightaway so that they get water in them as soon as possible, if you are not going to be using them for a while you will need to ensure that they are filled with water to stop the wood from shrinking and drying out.

We will always email and keep you informed of expected delivery dates together with tracking details of the courier used.

Should on the rare occasion a product be out of stock, we will fully reimburse you immediately.  If you wish us to reserve one for when it comes back into stock we will (with your permission) contact you as soon as it becomes available.

If you subscribe to our website and apply for the promotional offer then this is only available on full price items with a minimum spend of £150.00.
