Bespoke Post “Orchard” Review

 

If you read my last Bespoke Post review, you might be noticing a fermentation sort of theme going on for me this fall. This box contains everything I need to brew up some apple cider, aside from the apple juice.

 

Hard Cider Brew Kit – Retail Value $45.00

So every fall, Will goes into beer brewing mode and most weekends are filled with him creating some magical brew in the kitchen. They take some time to ferment, so as the year gets colder there are always random jugs filled with brewing beer around the house in black bags to protect them from light. He really, really enjoys craft brewing! When I saw this hard cider kit, I knew it had to be his. I brought it home and he wanted to get started right away. The only thing we needed was to source a gallon of fresh apple juice, and (lucky for me!) there is a farmer’s market down the road every Thursday. Once we acquired the juice, we were on a roll!

 

The hardest part of brewing is the wait. Will is a proponent of secondary fermentation, which doubled the wait time. It’s ok, I trust his genius.

Here is the first pour! It was really mild and yummy. While it was carbonated, it wasn’t harsh like some sodas or beers. It was actually so yummy warmed up with an orange slice too!

 

Tasting Cider by Erin James and CIDERCRAFT Magazine, 288 pages – Retail Value $19.95 (found here for $17.69)

I thought this would be a recipe book, but it was more like a giant tasting journal for ciders across the country. The end had some yummy food and cocktail recipes too.

This complete guide to North America’s oldest beverage celebrates hard cider’s rich history and its modern makers, as well as its deliciously diverse possibilities. Flavor profiles and tasting guidelines highlight 100 selections of cider — including single varietal, dessert, hopped, and barrel-aged — plus perry, cider’s pear-based cousin. A perfect addition to any meal, cider pairings are featured in 30 food recipes, from Brussels sprouts salad to salmon chowder, brined quail, and poached pear frangipane. An additional 30 cocktail recipes include creative combinations such as Maple Basil Ciderita and Pear-fect Rye Fizz.

Though I would have preferred a book of cider recipes, this was still very cool and the perfect addition to this box.

Verdict: This Bespoke Post contained another fun drink brewing kit and our cider turned out pretty great! I was surprised at how easy it was and we will totally make more cider in the future. For $48.95 ($45.00 + $3.95 shipping), we received $64.95 in value for the kit and tasting journal (this does not include the cider I purchased). The value was here since the drink kit itself covered the subscription cost, leaving the book value as a fun extra! If you are looking for a really fun and totally ‘fall’ activity, grab this kit.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yep! Brew with me, friends!

COUPON: Use code ADDICT25 to 25% off your first box.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $45 + $3.95 shipping meaning I saved about 26% with my Bespoke Post membership this month.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I agree with all the different points. I’d like a lot of the clothes, a recent box had a packable down jacket that retails for four times the cost but only in men’s sizes and They won’t fit me! I would buy all the boxes Leslie created too!

  2. You are both right in that creating “female” and “male” boxes creates unnecessary gender categories. The boxes obviously appeal to both genders as they are now. I think it would be interesting for them to add more female centric boxes, but forget labeling them for the subscribers will just pick what they like as people not as a gender. Especially now that there is much evidence that for some, perhaps many,, the gender binary is constricting.

  3. For the September box, I chose the “clear” box. Four full size Murad products and a konjac sponge. You can’t beat the price for four Murad products. For October, I will select it again. I love the brand and refuse to pay full price for it, so this is an awesome box for me.

  4. For those who are looking into breaking into the subscription box market, follow bespoke’s model and make a woman’s version of this box. We are tired of waiting for bespoke post to do it. Obviously many of these boxes can be enjoyed by both sexes, but the clothing, traveling gear, skin and hair care all can be created with women in mind. How about a felting kit, or Guided, which could have a guided sleep journal with a weighted sleep mask and one of those sunrise mimicking clocks, or Sublime, a very light background scent with a diffuser and 3 way light bulbs that can dim to a pale pink, pale blue or pale orange light. You can name either of those boxes with a better name. There are so many themes this box could explore that appeal more to females.

    Hey Bespoke Post, how about you do this. You allow both sexes to pick among the male or female boxes, for a man may want to buy his significant other a box or a man may like the “female,” box theme and vice versa. You would need to expand your workforce, but I bet you would gain about a 40% increase in sales, maybe more once people realize they have greater choice. You could even have 2 new choices for women, men and both genders creating six new boxes any subscriber could choose from. More work but I think your sales would see a huge increase.

    Cool box though.

    • I’m female and was a Bespoke subscriber for at least a year and I enjoyed every single months’ choices. I’m married so if something caught my eye that my husband would like I chose that. However their kitchen items and home items usually drew me in. I feel that although Bespoke isn’t drawing a gender line in the sand for any and all sides, they have done a fantastic job in curating boxes for everyone. There were choices that existed “For Her” for a few months and those ran out and I don’t think they ended up continuing to go down that road. But there were 4-5 to choose from. I never once chose them, for what it’s worth.

    • They actually have a few boxes specially designed for woman. If you so a search here, I think MSA had a post about it when it was first announced. However, those boxes never appealed to me quite like the normal ones do.

    • The only change I wish they would make is in clothing size. I love their selections, but I have boobs and my feet are 5.5 in women’s. None of the clothing options would fit me well.
