In the past we’ve jammed in Jamaica, careened elsewhere thru the Caribbean, and vroomed thru Venezuela, noticing at every turn the different ways these countries and cultures approach their rums—an endless variety of styles to which our intrepid bartenders deftly tailored their recipes. This year, the holidays are going to be more adventurous than ever when Rums of Origins 3 comes to town. Sign up today to get your name on the list for a delicious December to remember!
Order by December 15th to get this box!
Q: Is there a reason this box doesn’t have the “gorge as a gift” subscription option?Asked by Jenny D., December 2019
Our gift subscriptions are set up differently from the ones offered on the
Cratejoy Marketplace, so they are only available on our site, because the
Marketplace is not able to offer them at this time.
The way our gift system works is that we send your giftee an email—on
whatever day you wish—to notify them of your gift (with a personal message
from you), and then they'll be prompted to claim their gift, creating their
account and providing their preferred shipping address.
We do things this way for a few important reasons. Firstly, our boxes are
perishable and need to be refrigerated on the day that they arrive, so we
want the people receiving our boxes to know to expect them. And secondly,
people are sometimes quite particular about the liquor they want and don't
Q: If I can’t find Pisco what can I useAsked by Malena K., September 2019
Grappa is the most comparable thing to pisco flavor-wise! Just make sure
it's around 40% ABV.
Copper & Kings and a few other domestic distilleries also have some unaged
grape distillate (sometimes places will call it "white brandy") that will
You could try white tequila or grappa. We had to ask our liquor store to order it for us since they don’t normally carry it. We’d never heard of Pisco before receiving our S&S box. It’s a smooth and pleasant liquor. Really glad we tried it, we ended up buying another bottle.
I asked the same question! I was told to go with an aged rum.
Aged something like 5–8 years. :)
Q: Is there a way to do a every other month subscription?Asked by Kimberly E., November 2020
Q: I see it says you are shipping out on the 7th of December for Christmas. Will any of the ingredients have trouble staying fresh enough for it to be opened on Christmas morning?Asked by Simone P., November 2020
Hi Simone! The Rums of Origin 3 Box will be shipping throughout the weeks of December 7th and December 14th. Once the box arrives, the perishables should be removed and placed in the fridge. That way everything will be good to go for Christmas morning!
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!
Thanks for the wonderful review, and for sharing the love about Shaker & Spoon, Marta! We're so happy to hear about your positive experience with our boxes. Cheers!
I love this box. I look forward to trying new crafted drinks every month. Customer service is great and fast at fixing any issues.
Thanks for the review, Lisa. Cheers!
The best box ever to get you out of your cocktail comfort zone!!! So much fun trying new things!!!
We're thrilled to hear that our boxes are inspiring you to expand your cocktail horizons! Cheers to that 😊
A gift for my sister-in-law and she couldn't stop raving about the box. She was so impressed with the packaging, content and how wonderful drinks came out. She was kind enough to share a cocktail with me and it was delicious. We both loved that there was one bottle of alcohol involved to make such a variety of cocktails
Thanks for gifting Shaker & Spoon, Kathleen! We're thrilled to hear about your experience. Cheers to many delicious cocktails to come!
I've actually ordered two boxes, so this review counts for both of them. They are gifts for my parents and my BF and her husband. THEY LOVE THEM! I have received nothing but raves for these boxes...now some drinks were more popular than others, that I will say. However, considering the age difference in the couples, finding a gift that works for different generations with varying tastes...this worked! So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! If I personally drank hard liquor, I'd order it for myself just based on how much they love it ;-)
Hi Kelly. We are so happy to hear about your great experience with Shaker & Spoon! Thanks for sharing the love. Cheers! 😊
Really complete and cute kit! Made a great gift for my husband!
Glad to hear your husband enjoyed, Jennifer! Cheers 😊
I suspected a cocktail sub box from New York might result in an experience akin to reading a high fashion magazine and I wasn't disappointed. From specialized recipes to flavors completely new to me to the delightful bottles with all the exotic syrups and drops, the box felt like a very fancy pick-me-up that I needed. The recipe cards include a glossary and make drink mixing easy to understand, fun, and quick. Each box has a theme surrounding one particular type of alcohol with three different drinks to mix. Some of the drinks are a little too flavorful for my underdeveloped palette, but the whole experience has overall been a gastronomical delight.
Hi Renee, We're so happy to hear that our boxes have brought you such a memorable experience, thanks for sharing the love! 😊
If you are looking forward to looking forward to a monthly subscription box - this is it! It comes with everything you need (except alcohol), detailed instructions, fresh materials and excellent cocktail choices. You can go a step further and follow Shaker & Spoon on social media for box announcements, recommended alcohol pairings, and technique video to really get your inner mixologist flowing. Great company!
Thank you for your kind words, Kimberly! We appreciate you taking the time to share your positive experience with us. Cheers 😊
I absolutely love this subscription. It is definitely worth the cost and stocked full of ingredients and delicious recipes. I just received my second month and am currently enjoying the Chinotto drink with Blanco Tequila. I love it!!
Thanks for the awesome review, Amanda! We work hard to meet expectations like yours, and we’re happy to hear we hit the mark for you. Cheers! 😊
A delightful way for you to up your cocktail game. Incredibly generous customer service too. Highly recommend if you're looking to expand your home cocktail skills and repertoire. Cheers!
We count ourselves lucky to have people like you in our community, Heidi. Thanks for leaving such a kind review. Cheers! 😊
“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,” little darlins!
You may be familiar with pisco’s subtle floral and fruity flavors and the traditional Punch and Sour to which it lends its name, but with this box, we had a few other ideas on how to keep it flowing this August. Yes, we came down with another case of Pisco Fever right on time for summer—and the only known cure is relaxation with three refreshing cocktails.
Scotchtember: a brand new month for your calendar, and our chance to show off and celebrate Scotch in a new light. It was an expedition for a month-long discovery of some all-new ways to enjoy Scotch, featuring Caer Maiko Ferguson’s Japanese-inspired highball, Robert Sickler’s rich, decadent concoction, and Aaron DeFeo’s floral, spiced, and herbal old fashioned!
To pay homage to the history and deliciousness of Mexico's national treasure, we set the Mezcal Moods with three drinks that head out in entirely different directions but ultimately meet back up at the destination of Mmmmmm—featuring Caer Maiko's smoky mango lassi, Jules Mavromatis's diabolically drinkable blood orange brew, and Sam Jimenez's rich, earthy, and aromatic agave-based libation!
For November’s box, we featured cocktails that celebrated all things natural and wild. Via recipes that highlighted ingredients from their necks of the woods, our featured bartenders offered up glimpses of three majestic National Parks and Monuments near and dear to them—and donated their proceeds directly to those lands for preservation and beautification efforts.
Just in the nick of time, Party Punch: Bourbon & Bubbles made its way through the workshop to arrive for holiday celebrations. With rich, oaky bourbon and effervescent sparkling wine as their foundation, the three classy and nuanced concoctions soared from there, taking punch's traditional five segments of flavor and expanding on them in delightfully surprising ways.
