We do not claim, and you should not assume, that all users will have the same experiences. YOUR INDIVIDUAL RESULTS MAY VARY.
The testimonials on the Site are submitted in various forms such as text, audio and/or video, and are reviewed by us before being posted.

While we endeavor to provide full and accurate information on our website, there may be occasions where producers have updated their recipe or failed to provide full details of their ingredients and processes. This may affect factors including the product style and allergen information, and we would advise that you always check the label and not solely rely on the information presented here. If you are at all uncertain about a product then please contact our customer service team before purchase.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to be confident about what you buy from us. As such, we display allergen information in a prominent place on all relevant product pages, which let you know that the product may contain ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction.
WHICH ALLERGENS DO WE COVER?
Where a product has been made with any of the following as an ingredient or processing aid, we tell you about it on the product page:
- cereals containing gluten – including wheat (such as spelt and Khorasan), rye, barley and oats
- crustaceans – such as prawns, crabs and lobsters
- molluscs – such as mussels and oysters
- tree nuts – including almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, brazil nuts, cashews, pecans, pistachios and macadamia nuts
- sesame seeds
- sulphur dioxide and sulphites (if they are at a concentration of more than ten parts per million)
WHERE DOES OUR ALLERGEN INFORMATION COME FROM?
We request allergen information from the supplier of every single product that we sell. In a few instances it may be possible that the supplier has failed to provide information, and if you are at all unsure about any product then please contact our customer service team before purchase.
ALLERGENS IN DISTILLED SPIRITS
Due to the nature of the distillation process ingredients which are allergens in their natural state, for example wheat, are not carried over into the finished spirit. As such, unflavored spirits are considered allergen-free by EU law and we do not display information on their product pages. Where the spirit has been flavored after distillation and the flavoring contains allergens, however, this information will be displayed.
OLD AND RARE WHISKIES AND SPIRITS
We are very proud to stock a wide range of old and rare whiskies and antique spirits. By their very nature, detailed production information about these bottles is most often non-existent, and we are therefore unable to provide allergen details in these cases. However, if you are interested in one of our old and rare bottles and have concerns, please contact our customer service team for further information and advice.
VEGETARIAN AND VEGAN PRODUCTS
The Whisky Exchange is constantly working to support those who follow vegetarian and vegan lifestyles. You may find our vegan wines list (Vegan Wines : The Whiskey Mart) as a useful place to start, but please contact us with specific product queries.
The Whiskey Mart is working on ways to display which products in its range are Kosher. In the meantime, we have compiled a list of those spirits which have been confirmed as Kosher by their producer. You can find this here: Kosher Spirits : The Whiskey Mart
