We were gifted a 3 month subscription and the first package arrived last week. My husband, at first, was skeptical. That changed when I told him the cocktail was a bourbon one. There was ample syrup and rim dip for more than four drinks, and given we’re lightweight s, we extended the four portions of bourbon to eight delicious drinks. We shared with friends, which added to the enjoyment. Anxious for next month’s delivery!
This box came with 1 small bottle of syrup, 4 mini bottles of whiskey, and 4 dried limes - for $50. It was worth maybe $15 so I was totally disappointed. There was nothing special about the syrup, which was so simple I have made similar in the past, and the dried limes as a garnish were just tacky. I canceled after receiving the first box.
I am not a Jim Beam drinker but willing to try the Hot Totty
Was really wanting to love this box but it was a terrible value for the money and very boring. I received 4 mini bottles of Bacardi rum, a single can of hard tea seltzer, sugar, and some powdered lemon. Really hoped this would be more interesting.
My brother gave us this gift for 6 months. He is an awesome brother because this is an awesome gift. Meaning, he knows how to select a gift. The picture is of the contents of the box on opening. Well laid out, well protected. The cocktail was easy to mix and delicious. (My brother-in-law once stopped me from making a rum and coke because I was doing it wrong). The directions on the card and the success of mixing (my wife talked me through it), made this an enjoyable evening and a repeatable event. The shipment was for 4 drinks. Two each and an easy to repeat recipe means more innovative buying at our alcohol store. I am very grateful and highly recommend this fabulous club.
We asked for the “no booze “box and we keeping the booze. And the booze is platinum vodka- not the best out there. They did send us a replacement for their mistake but it was the exact same box lol we tried another subscription box one time and it was much fancier and made 12 drinks.
I ordered these monthly boxes as a gift for someone, however, was quite disappointed with them. There were no specialty items or ingredients, nothing exciting or exotic - most of the boxes came with small alcohol bottles & a mixer bottle (pre-mixed ingredients, not even fresh - could have just done a fresh juice at home and would have been much better) and a few pieces of garnish.
Even if you have no knowledge of cocktails whatsoever, I wouldn't recommend this box as your introduction - book a cocktail class or just take this money and spend it in a bar and you'll be way less disappointed.
The idea is great, however, the execution is quite cheap and sloppy.
Everything was first rate except the drink selection. I was hoping to get a collection of exotic drinks with an exciting, unique liquor or ingredient and was disappointed with two disappointing mule drinks that I have been drinking and mixing quite regularly.
The box was lovely, since I am not a tequila drinker I will gift this one. Looking forward to more!
This is the 3rd month of my subscription. The first 2 were amazing. Feb box was really really bad. I had 2 friend try it with me and all of us thought it was terrible. I did order prior to this another 3 months. I am not trying to be negative because I loved the first two. I just wanted to give feedback on the watermelon mojito.
Not worth the money. E
Great! Always interesting and tasty. Portions are weird though. Usually have leftover something but that's okay.
Issue with incorrect address delivery and took over 20 email follow ups on my end to sort out (issue by company, not on my end). Can only contact customer service via email and cratejoy defers any issue to the actual 3rd party company as they don’t actually make any of these products. Would not recommend nor ever order from again as impossible to get any real customer service assistance.
I love all the concoctions & recipes that come with the box. If you love making cocktails at home you'll definitely enjoy this box!
Still waiting for the first delivery that was mailed out December 23! Can't even track where it is. HORRIBLE!!!!
I ordered 3 (3) month subscriptions for family and friends. While one got there relatively quickly, two were “lost” for two weeks, with very little info from customer service (first tracking number was invalid; the second wasn’t a tracking number).
But they did finally arrive and my friends seem to like it.
Since I've not yet received my shipment, I can't attest to the quality of the product. However, I can attest to the quality of customer service that I've received....and that's been non-existant. The company does not utilize standard shipping companies like UPS, FedEx or USPS, but rather sends you a portal link with crazy information and unfortunately no valid tracking numbers. So, I have no idea where my box is and when it will be delivered. Upon contacting the company, they send an email with the same portal link that offers no valid information. In the age of customer experience wins, this company is a total LOSS!
Hi Meredith, Thank you for you review. We truly appreciate you bringing this to our attention. This is truly not the experience that we want our customers to have. Due to the volume of the holiday shipments via usual carriers, we opted to use alternative shipping partners to help us with our deliveries. This however did not alleviate some of the shipment delays and sadly our customers still experienced them. We agree that we should have given a heads up on what's going on and also provided you with an update. This shipment was already refunded to the account you used at the time the order was placed. Another email response was sent to you confirming this along with an automated email with details of...
Loved the drink, however I have sampled other boxes…
Where you are able to learn to make new drinks.
So I would love to re- create this drink, but the bottle of mixer did not have directions.
I presume this is proprietary….but the joys of trying new drinks is to be able to re-create
Can you buy Smokin’ Margarita Mixer?
Easy to follow instructions and everything you need to make a good drink! Really enjoyed it!
Ordered for a birthday gift for my bf. They grabbed the $ from my checking Sept 3. Requested a birthday email to her on her birthday-Sept 7th. No email. Emailed the company several times. Finally responded after 2 weeks.
Still no gift to my friend. 9/27
We were missing the chili lime seasoning for the glass rim
I initially received my order with a broken liquor and I reached out to customer service. They were able to immediately addressed the issue and the replacement bottle was reshipped. I love this month's recipe especially the choice of Cognac! I look forward to ordering this as a gift
I subscribed several months ago as an anniversary gift for my husband, and we are obsessed! We have been having so much fun putting these cocktails together, and the box makes it fool proof. All of them have been delicious so far, and we couldn't recommend more! Perfect gift idea, but also to buy for your own enjoyment! 10/10.
This is a great gift idea. It was fun and exciting to make your drinks together. Such a great way to bond.
loved the branding - it's well done - and nothing came out of place! Nice gift idea, my mom loved it! Excited to taste the recipe!
