WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

There are two different types of cookies: Session and Persistent. They are used for different things and contain different information.

Session cookies contain information that is used within your current browser session. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Nothing is retained on your machine beyond the time you spend on the website.

Persistent cookies are used to hold information that is used between visits. This data allows websites to recognise that you are a returning customer and react accordingly. Persistent cookies have a lifetime value that is set by the website, which can vary between a few minutes or several years.

We use a number of first party cookies which are generated by Edrington and the information collected is used only by Edrington. We also use some third party cookies.  These cookies are placed by third parties and the information they collect through our website is shared with that third party. Further details of where information is shared with our third party cookie partners is detailed below.
