Our son gave us a gift subscription and then renewed it when we said how much we enjoyed it. We have recommended the monthly box to so many people and intend to give subscriptions as gifts to friends. Not only are the boxes well crafted and details, but the company has amazing customer service. We have done an awful lot of subscription boxes ranging from wine, clothes, and personal items to snacks and bespoke gifts. This is the first one that we have wanted to stick with!
I love this box. I look forward to trying new crafted drinks every month. Customer service is great and fast at fixing any issues.
I bought this subscription as a Christmas gift for my husband, and honestly for myself as well. I figured it would be good based on reviews, but really had no idea just how good it would be! We have received 5 boxes so far, and continue to be blown away by the quality ingredients and delicious craft cocktails. I remember the very first drink we made, "The Kitashima." We took a sip, and it was like, "What is happening? Because, this is so delicious!!" I don't know about you, but the older I get, the harder it feels to find a cool gift that sparks a bit of actual fun and excitement. First of all, I love the way everything in the box is packaged, from the little glass bottles, the choice of quality card stock, and the design of each individual recipe card, it just feels special. The box includes information on what glassware and barware to use, techniques, terminology, and whatever else is needed to make the high quality cocktail. They include things like; various citrus, bitters, oils, salts, and spices. Shaker & Spoon will email you ahead of time with information about the box. They make recommendations for the alcohol to purchase, which we have followed, and have been very happy with. Their recommendations definitely work well with the ingredients they send, and they are not super pricey. They also include a playlist, which is another cool thing! They really do have everything covered.
Not only a fantastic gift for my cocktail-obsessed husband (& by extension, me!), but amazing customer service and integrity. Great for novice cocktail makers and expert intoxicologists!!!
Customer service here is awesome. Very helpful. The box I recieved was very cute and ingredients are delicious.
I got this for my husband's birthday. We had fun mixing the cocktails and learning about the ingredients. Customer service is also great.
I bought a one-time box for my sister and brother-in-law for Christmas. My sister said it was one of the best gifts she has ever received. They loved everything about it!
I have been beyond impressed with Shaker & Spoon. I purchased a 3 month subscription for Valentines Day for my husband. It's been fun to share these cocktails in front of a fire on cold winter nights in Chicago! The drinks have been delicious and great quality. The box does not include the alcohol as regulations do not allow the shipment of alcohol, however I just picked up a bottle of whatever liquor was being featured that month and we pretty much went through the bottle by the end of the month. Everything else is inside, which includes unusual ingredients that I could not have found in the store. They also allow you to skip a box if you are not fond of the featured liquor or switch it out for a previous box. Regarding the price, I got it at a discounted price as a Cratejoy feature. It's probably about the same as you would spend in a bar, but allows you to make quality and interesting cocktails at home without the hassle of digging up new recipes and finding the unusual ingredients which you would have to purcase at higher quantity thus higher cost. To top it off, the customer service has been excellent with quick responses from the team with several questions I had at the onset. This makes a fantastic gift for the cocktail lover!
Bought this for my husband for Father’s Day and we both love it! It’s a great way to try new cocktails. Everything comes beautifully packaged.
What do you get a person who seems to already have everything? Shaker & Spoon! Got a 3 month subscription for my husband’s birthday and he liked it so much, we signed up for another 6 months. The box comes with 3 easy to follow recipes, barware suggestions, techniques and QUALITY ingredients including fresh fruit. Cocktails are delicious! Plus S&S has videos on their website that are quick & helpful. AND if you just loved a certain cocktail in the box, you can purchase the mixers in their store. Got a subscription to American Cocktail and the drinks are boring, blah...mediocre at best. If you’re looking for something far superior, Shaker & Spoon is definitely the way to go. Also, from my experience, they gave amazing customer support; Mike, Brittany and Joel were fantastic.
“Liquor of the gods,” “the water of life,” and “the drink of heroes”: just a few of the laudatory nicknames given to brandy over the years.
Our expedition into Canadian territory required just two things: a bottle of the country’s rye whisky, and a thirst for creative cocktails.
We curated 3 collabs pairing up chef and bartender, featuring boundary-pushing ingredients assembled with masterful technique and flair!
This box featured vibrant low-ABV cocktails showing off the versatility of a barroom staple, making for a swanky and sophisticated affair.
Just in time for the Derby, this collab with the Broken Shaker featured a refreshing highball, creative julep, and summery old fashioned.
This toast to the noble Negroni featured 3 variations on the classic: a spritz, a tropical sipper, and even a gin-only adaptation.
With this box, we kicked our feet up and stayed put in joyful Jamdown with 3 hometown hosts as our guides to help us “Stir it up”!
