Bespoke Post is a monthly men’s subscription box. Unlike most subscription boxes, you get to preview the new Bespoke Post box offerings on the first of each month, and you can easily skip any month you aren’t interested in your account section.

This month we picked the Distilled box.

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Each box comes with a fold out sheet detailing the items included and it usually has tips on how to one or more of the items. This month Bespoke Post includes directions to crate your own batch of homemade gin!

Everything came nicely packaged together in a nice, reusable drawstring bag. It’s a customized version of W&P Design Homemade Gin Kit.

And here is everything laid out from the kit!

bespoke-post-distilled-tonic

Boylan Heritage Tonic – Value $2.50

12 oz bottle

Here are the first pieces of the kit. I’m excited to try this tonic, I know most tonics are pretty similar, but I have found some that I like better than other, so I’m always excited to try a new tonic for my gin and tonics! The bottle is the first piece of customization from the typical kit. The typical kit includes 2, 375ML bottles. I like this customization because I’d like to make a much bigger batch to sample – so I like getting the 12 oz bottle!

The next piece of the kit contains two stainless steel instruments for creating your batch of gin.

Botanical Blend

Juniper Berries

Next up are the berries and botanicals that you’ll include in the vodka to get that classic gin taste!

W&P Design enamel tumblers – Value $25

This is an exclusive color for Bespoke Post. Liz and I love these. They have that classic solo cup look, but are a nice, solid, enamel cup.

Verdict: I love this month’s Bespoke Post. While I haven’t started the process to make my own gin, I have used Bespoke Post kits for other alcohol creation/aging and have loved it. The process only takes a day and a half, so I’m excited to get it underway. The value is fantastic as well – The tumblers and the tonic cover your cost by themselves, and while I’m not sure how much the kit costs, it’s already above cost of the box!

  1. I have been admiring this sub on here for a while- now i just subscribed for this one. It looks so fun!

  2. ha this is a really fun idea!

  3. FYI, the $31 price for the tonic is for a case of 12, not just one bottle 🙂

    • Fixed – thanks! 🙂
