Q: The person whom I offered a subscription was supposed to receive a not by email today and never got it.. How can I make sure the note will be sent? Thanks!Asked by France-alia B., December 2020
Hello! Thank you for posting! Usually this happens when the gift email goes to spam, or if we send it to the sender's email instead of the recipient by accident. We just resent the note to your gift recipient, so it should now be securely in their inbox for Christmas. If there is anything else that we can do for you, please feel free to reach out to us!
Have a wonderful holiday!

Thank you so much for posting this question! We can fix the address one of two ways: the gift sender can log back into the account and change the information for the shipping address, or you can email our team with the gift information, and we can change it on our end for you.
Thank you again for the question, and if there is anything else that we can assist with, please feel free to reach out to us! We hope that you have a wonderful holiday!
Q: Do you find out the book ahead of time, and if so, can you skip a box if you don't like the book? Asked by Caitlin B., November 2020
Thank you so much for posting this question. Subscribers can choose to pause their subscription or skip a month at any time, and that is totally fine!
For learning the book ahead of time, we originally did send an email to all subscribers each month with the book selection, but we received feedback from several subscribers that they preferred for the book selections to be a surprise. We currently only send a notification about the month's book to subscribers who have let us know that they would like to know the book ahead of time. If you would like to learn about each month's book and cocktail pick, please feel free to message us! We would be happy to add you to our email...
I have been an Intoxicated Intelectual subscriber prior to it's debut on Cratejoy (during the Beta Launch) and have been satisfied with every box I have received.
My July shipment included the stylish box pictured in this review. Each ingredient compliments the book, and is enough to make multiple drinks. You really could not ask for a more reasonable price for how much is included, and I am constantly surprised by how much they pack into the boxes.
The thoughtful presentation, quality ingredients, and overall value of the box make this a subscription I look forward to every month.
I've been an Intoxicated Intellectual subscriber since the launch, and am so satisfied with the boxes I have received so far! The recipes are creative, and I love reading the extra info that comes in each kit. It has also been a good mix of older and more modern classic books, which I appreciate. Their customer service is also fantastic. Overall, I highly recommend this box!
Loved my first box!
Fun, clever, new, on time, great surprise!
I bought this as a gift for my daughter. I know she has already read this book but I am not sure if she owns her own copy. Theme of the box was amazing and I loved the ice cube tray. I do think she will love this.
This is EASILY the coolest thing I have ever gotten myself! I practically stopped reading books after graduating so subscribing to this box was a good move. It came earlier than expected and the box had so much thought put into it. I even forgot I gave this to myself as a gift and put a cute message in it for me. My boyfriend thinks it super cool too and loved what we got and the other reviews are right about there being more than enough supplies to make multiple drinks. I LOVE this and it was definitely worth the price.
Can’t believe I didn’t write this review yet. Crazy year eh? Got this for my boyfriend and he loved it. Book was “Of Mice and Men” (which happened to be one of his faves) and the cocktail was the Jack Rose, John Steinbeck’s tipple. We are still enjoyinf the cocktails :) Shocked at the value - sentimental and intrinsic - packed into this box. Will get another for us! If you like books and/or cocktail making, this fits the bill!
It’s okay. I think the price is quite inflated, but am sure that’s due to whatever percentage Crate Joy is taking for showcasing the box on their platform to their massive audience. The box was well put together and well packaged. I received Alice in Wonderland, a bottle of orange bitters, a container of hibiscus flowers in juice, a bottle of lime juice, and two skewers. For $49.95, eh.
Purchased this as a gift. For $46 I expected way more. Hopefully the next two boxes are better..
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback on our most recent box. We try to ensure that each of our boxes is full of thoughtful curation and value, and we sincerely apologize. The good news is that we are so excited for our book and cocktail picks for January and February, and we hope that we can make it up to you!
Additionally, if there was anything missing from your box (it was meant to include a set of stainless steel cocktail picks, Hibiscus flowers in syrup, Raft Orange bitters, Key West Lime Juice, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and three recipe/info cards) please feel free to reach out to us!
Thank you so much for providing your feedback on our...
I love this box! I have been blown away by the quality ingredients and delicious craft cocktails, and the ways that the drinks tie in with the book. I have been trying for a while to read more classic lit, and this makes the whole experience so much more fun.
I knew when I ordered it that there is no alcohol in the boxes, and they sent out an email before I received the box to let me know that the box featured gin, and even gave recommendations for types that would work best for the recipe (The Sherlock Holmes Earl Grey Martini last month).
Regarding the price, it's less than you would spend in a bar for the same number of drinks (not even counting the books and bar tools that are also in the box), but this allows you to learn about the cocktails and enjoy the books wherever you want, without having to find the unusual ingredients which you would have to purchase at a higher cost. To top it off, the whole package is really nicely presented, and overall it feels like a unique experience.
Our August box featured a classic detective in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "A Study in Scarlet," paired with a delicious and intriguing Earl Grey Martini cocktail.
Our September Box features Franz Kafka's masterpiece, "The Metamorphosis," paired with a surreal and perplexing espresso cocktail.
Our November box features George Orwell's classic novel "1984," paired with a delightfully dystopian Smoked Rosemary Victory Gin.
