Q: If no one is home at time of delivery, am I able to pick up at UPS, or do I have to wait for them to redeliver?Asked by Jayme R., November 2019
If you sign up with UPS My Choice you can have it held at a UPS location.
Q: I actually have a few questions. I will be sending this to my son's apartment. Does it come in a discrete box? Does someone have to be there to sign for the box? With his work schedule, he can't always be there to sign for anything. Thank youAsked by Kathleen L., October 2019
The box is discrete, inside a plain white plastic bag/envelope. Someone does have to sign for it since it's alcohol, but they have it set up now where you can get a few months worth of the booze part at once, so when they send the other ingredients and recipe monthly nobody needs to sign for it.
Could the box be sent to his work? That way it's easier to have someone sign for it.
I first ordered Saloonbox as a gift over a year ago and have kept them coming! As parents to a young child (that can’t make it out for a nice drink as easily as we used to), Saloonbox has been perfect for date nights in. We have so much fun trying new drinks and have added a wide variety of new drinks to our repertoire. Love how the box is catered to the season and the quality of items is fantastic.
I've been subscribing to this box for two and a half years, and I look forward to it every month. I always enjoyed cocktails at bars, but would stick to ones I knew I liked. I decided to subscribe to this to expand my palate and see what I might like that I wouldn't think of trying. You get to try liquors from different companies and see which appeal. There have been several recipes that I ended up getting the ingredients for so I could keep making them, like a saffron syrup to make a Saffron Drop vodka drink. Also it has been a fun way to learn home bartending skills.
I'd say my only hesitation is if there are a lot liquors you don't like, you should look at how often they end up in recipes they send. Personally, tequila gives me headaches, so I tend to use those as gifts for friends. They always go over really well as gifts, though, so it's a win-win!
Great products, great variety of mixes and spirits. Wonderful company that is very responsive and timely. Would recommend to anyone looking to grow your cocktail knowledge. Great writing about the sources of the product and the history of cocktails.
We have tried a bunch of box services and end up canceling them all, except Saloon Box, We still look forward to what each box brings and continue to learn new drinks
I love this box! I have subscribed for YEARS. We have discovered SO many excellent cocktails over the years. I am never at a loss for what to order when we go out. I keep the instruction cards and have made some our favorites over and over. I do have it delivered to my office which helps with the someone who is 21 or older needs to be there to sign for it.
Great product and service overall. I like that you can try a couple of cocktails without getting large bottles when you may not love it. Saloon Box gets you to experiment and try new flavors. They also do an excellent job of finding craft mixers that are hard to find and also do a great job with small batch spirits. I wish certain of the classics (negroni, manhattan, etc.) were developed with perhaps a twist and shipped out, but still a great service overall!
One reason I chose SaloonBox for a monthly cocktail subscription was the inclusion of the alcohol with the recipe and mixings. Little did I know that the alcohol comes weeks (still waiting for the first alcohol shipment nearing two weeks after I received the box with the recipes, etc.). I contacted SaloonBox and they explained how they need to ship the alcohol separately, which is fine. But if the gap between the "SaloonBox" and the alcohol is so large, something is wrong. I would like to say something about the quality of the drink, but seeing as I haven't even been able to taste it yet, I can't comment on that. If you want to actually sample the product when you receive it, best go somewhere else. If you enjoying waiting endlessly before you can sample a drink, then this is the club for you.
Paul, we're so sorry to hear that your spirit shipment took a long time to get to you! We reached out to our liquor partner to see what happened, as typically spirit shipments take 1-5 business days to deliver. Unfortunately there was a delay with your order. We've emailed you regarding a refund we are making to your account to apologize for the delay.
