  1. I’ve been subscribed for a few months now and I’m enjoying it. In fact, I’ve found 2 cocktails that I’ve added into my repertoire. The value is there for me because of the syrups mainly. I do wish they would suggest lower-priced alternatives to the liquors they suggest because most of the time the bottles they suggest are pushing $50. Overall it’s been a fun subscription for me thus far.

  2. This is a subscription box that really ought to be a youtube channel.

  3. Overpriced. Not interested.

  4. They need to include booze even if it’s a pint, I don’t see the value in mixers and fruit.

    • Agreed. If they could add the booze and keep the price the same, I’d be much more interested and feel the value was more there.

  5. Wow! You should be the teviewer! I never know what to say when you ask if something should be reviewed. I assume you are only able review a finite number of boxes and if there is interest in one you won’t be able to review something else. This one always seemed terribly overpriced for my life.

  6. I subscribed to this for several months. The one down side was that I was paying for including lemons or limes, for instance, that were extremely inexpensive and not arriving in good shape. No alcohol is included, but I always bought the recommended brands, sometimes $150 a month, which was my decision, because I like a truly top shelf bar. While Waterford was my registry, I didn’t have some of the fun cocktail glasses and Negroni stirrer, etc.

    If you are looking for a reviewer, I’d be happy to finally use a thousand dollars worth of professional specialty cocktail equipment and crystal. Haha

    Long story short: I wish they would lower the price of the subscription and stop including produce that is so easily accessible. Why ship perishables that are so common and in most people’s produce drawer at the moment and suggest an obscure gin like Monkey 47, for instance, which is fantastic, but not everyone will have access to specialized wine and spirits businesses like Martin’s Wine Cellar in New Orleans or some great stores in NY that will get whatever your heart desires?

    One could happily subscribe to this and use whatever glasses are on hand and cheaper liquor, but I did enjoy following the recommendations of the mixologists, which increased the cost, and used my own produce.

    It is a lovely subscription, but just one that I chose to cease after several boxes. The customer service was phenomenal! I just lost interest in it. As far as reviewing it, you would need to decide if you are going top shelf or just the easier way. It’s definitely a fun box for a while if one is truly a craft cocktail lover and willing to pay for the experience.
