Purchased this as a gift. For $46 I expected way more. Hopefully the next two boxes are better..

Hi Fallon!
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!

The curation was thoughtful, and the shipping timely. However, the name of the subscription is a bit misleading. It gives the impression that alcohol is included in the box. It is not. Only the other ingredients used in the cocktail are included. Totaling up the average prices for the items included in the box, there is not a lot of value for money. I would suggest lowering the price of the box by about $15 and including a bold disclaimer that alcohol is not included.

We would also love for you to reach out to us is there was anything missing from your box. We strive to give each of our boxes a retail value over $50 (+discounted shipping), and hope that you will let us know if we forgot to put any items in the box that you received. Our July box included a 750ml bottle of Monin honey...
