The following terms and conditions (“Terms of Sale”) apply to orders you place on this website (“Website”), which is operated by Lion – Family and Friends (a trading division of Lion – Beer, Spirits & Wine (NZ) Limited) (“Lion”), and are to be read in conjunction with the General Terms and Conditions of Use, and the Privacy Policy (collectively, those terms and the Terms of Sale are referred to as the “Terms”). By placing orders using the Website you will be deemed to agree to the Terms. If you do not agree to be bound by the Terms you must stop using and accessing the Website.


You can browse a range of Products that we have made available on the Website, at that time, for you to purchase.

If a Product is marked as “Out of Stock” or has similarly been marked as unavailable, then it is not available for you to purchase.

The minimum order size varies depending on brand of Product purchased.
The minimum order size will be clearly stated on the Product selection page.

When you have selected Product(s), these will sit in your shopping cart until you are ready to complete your purchase.

You may complete your purchase by confirming the Product(s) you intend to purchase, providing your payment details, delivery address, delivery details and any other information that we may require, and then confirming and submitting an order (“Order”). You acknowledge that an Order is a legal offer from you to us, to purchase the Products in that Order.

Upon receipt of your Order, we will either: (a) accept the Order and email confirmation of the Order to you using your email address provided, and then organise delivery to occur; or (b) reject the Order for any reason at our complete discretion and email notice and details of the rejection to you. If this occurs, no payment will be processed.

If Lion has trouble processing your Order, any contact information you provide is used to get in touch with you. This information is stored in a secure area, is encrypted for Lion customers’ protection, and is not sold or shared with anyone else under any circumstances, except to the extent set out in the Privacy Policy.

The Order total includes the price of the Product(s) ordered, delivery costs (where applicable) and GST.

Acceptance of any Order placed through this Website is conditional on validation of the credit card number you provide to us and approval of the purchase amount by the card issuer. All transactions are billed in New Zealand dollars.

Delivery times

Delivery days are available Monday to Saturday, except where delivery is to rural areas in which case delivery days are available on weekdays only. Lion does not deliver on public holidays where it is illegal to trade.

Orders will be dispatched within 2-5 working days of the Order being accepted.

You will be notified via email at point of dispatch and informed of the delivery tracking reference.

Orders with a delivery address in the North Island will take 5-7 working days to be delivered.

Orders with a delivery address in the South Island will take 5-7 working days to be delivered.


Delivery will be made to the delivery address provided by you.

Delivery can only be made to a New Zealand street address. If you have provided a delivery address that is outside New Zealand or not a street address, then your Order will not be accepted.

Lion will endeavour to deliver all normal Orders within a reasonable time. However, you accept that delays may arise in some circumstances. You acknowledge and agree that to the extent permitted by law we will not be liable to you for any damages, costs or expenses of any kind, suffered or incurred by you due to the Order not being fulfilled or the Products not being delivered within the anticipated delivery time.

You understand and warrant that it is your responsibility to show (or to procure the person or persons receiving the Products (“Recipient”) to show) current identification to the person or persons delivering the Products. The identification must include you or the Recipient’s:

  • full name;
  • date of birth;
  • photo; and
  • signature.

Alcohol purchases must be signed for by someone over the age of 18 on delivery. Lion staff may insist on age verification.

It is against the law to leave restricted Products such as alcohol unattended at an address. Please make sure that someone will be available to take delivery at the requested time because it will not be left at the address.

If you have any questions and queries, please contact info-buyspeights@buyspeights.co.nz

If the Products cannot be delivered for any reason, such as you or the Recipient failing or refusing to accept the Products, or you or the Recipient failing to produce adequate identification, the Products will be returned to Liquor King Takapuna and held for you to collect. You must, at your expense, collect the Products within one week of the attempted delivery.

If you receive Products from us that are not part of your Order, you must immediately notify us. If you choose to keep those Products, we may charge you accordingly. If you choose to return those Products to us, we will refund you any amount charged to you for those Products and reimburse you any reasonable costs incurred in returning those Products to us.

Lion is deemed to have fulfilled its obligations upon delivery of the Products.

Returns policy

If you are unhappy about any aspect of your delivery, please contact info-buyspeights@buyspeights.co.nz with all details of your Order and what is required.  Lion only offers refunds/replacement of Products where a Product is defective.  Defect claims must be made within 7 days of receipt of Products.

Warranties and liability

Subject to the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and otherwise to the maximum extent permitted by law, Lion expressly excludes all express or implied warranties, descriptions, representations, statements and advice given as to the fitness or suitability for any purpose, tolerance to any conditions, similarity to sample, merchantability or otherwise.

If you are not a “Consumer” as defined in the Consumers Guarantees Act 1993, or where you hold yourself out as acquiring the Products for the purposes of business then the provisions of the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 shall not apply.

You accept and acknowledge that regardless of any advice given by an employee, agent, supplier or delivery person, that upon acceptance of the Products by you or the Recipient, all risk in the Products passes to you. Title in the Products passes to you once you have paid for the Products in full.

Subject to the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and otherwise to the maximum extent permitted by law, Lion excludes all liability against any damage and/or injury and/or loss arising directly or indirectly from any defect in or non-compliance of the Products. You acknowledge and accept that, to the maximum extent permitted by law, any damages for any other breach of Lion’s obligations shall not in any event exceed an amount equivalent to the price of the Products you have paid for.

Force majeure

Lion shall be under no liability to you in respect of anything that, if not for this provision, would or might constitute a breach of the Terms, where this arises out of circumstances beyond the control of Lion, including but not limited to acts of God; natural disasters; sabotage; accident; riot; shortage of supplies, equipment, materials; strikes and lockouts; civil commotion; computer hacking; or malicious damage.
