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!
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.
