Bespoke Post Review - Bota - July 2013

Bespoke Post is a monthly subscription box service for men. Each month they have several box options you can preview before you select which one you want, or you can always skip a month. Each box has a theme, and this month’s theme is Bota: “helping you and your crew make the most of your next outdoor gathering.”

Bespoke Post Review - Bota - July 2013

Curved WineBota –  Value $50

I had never heard of WineBotas before, so I had to try out the Bota box this month. Here’s a brief explanation from Bespoke Post if WineBotas are new to you too:

Bota wineskins have been used for thousands of years in Spain as a convenient and durable storage device for travelers, shepherds and farmers alike. One of only a handful of authentic bota craftsmen, Jesus Blasco leads his generations-old family business that his great great grandfather pioneered. Taking about 40 steps from start to finish, each bota is hand sewn and crafted in the small town of Sigüenza, Spain. The exterior is 100% genuine leather with a latex liner.

So I guess a WineBota is kind of a very sophisticated flask! Bespoke Post even put together a list of 10 sneaky ways to use your Bota (concerts, movies, sporting events, etc).

Bespoke Post Custom Series 20 wooden dice & 4 cups – Value $25 ?

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of these wooden dice and felt-lined cups – Bespoke Post has yet to disappoint me with their material choices in their boxes! Bespoke Post also put together instructions for five of their favorite dice games, so we have no excuse not give these cups and dice a try!

Verdict: I am very pleased with the Bota box from Bespoke Post! This box had a value well over the $45 we paid for it, and everything will go to use! I  always recommend Bespoke Post as a great men’s subscription box, and I often gift subscriptions to it as well – I love that you can select which box you want to receive or skip if you’re not interested that month! What do you think of the Bota box? Which box did you select from Bespoke Post for July?

  1. Hi, I’m currently in between getting the Bespoke Subscription or the Fancy Box. Which one would you recommend for a guy?

    • If I could only pick one I’d go with Bespoke Post – in part because you can preview the boxes and skip a month if you aren’t interested in their offerings that month. If you are looking for more of a surprise you could try Fancy though!


      • What about going with the Fancy Box vs Ashton Kutcher’s Fancy Box?? which would you choose?

        • It seems like Ashton has been picked at least one tech item each month, so if you’re interested in tech / gadget items I’d go with the Ashton Kutcher box. If you’re up for any variety, Fancy Box works!

  2. So it’s a wineskin? Not sure if I would use it for wine, but maybe a way to carry water for short hikes. It doesn’t seem like the easiest thing to clean…

  3. I don’t like how they are describing the winebota…
    I looked at your link about the sneaky ways to use the winebota, and it sounds like it was made for an alcoholic to get away with drinking in public, like come-on, using this at a circus? Thats a little ridiculous.

  4. I always really like that you know ahead of time what you are getting, so if you don’t like what’s in the box(es), you can skip a month.
