I’m no stranger to a subscription box and neither is Laura so when we heard about Tipple Box we were intrigued and decided to give it a try as we both enjoy a good cocktail at home, however, sometimes having everything you need isn’t always possible and this is where Tipple Box come in, a box with everything included to make life simple.
Tipple Box is a monthly subscription service that offers monthly, 3, 6 or 12-month subscriptions. A monthly box starts at £24 and becomes discounted the longer you sign up for, the box includes a recipe card for two cocktails that serve two people each plus all the alcohol and mixers you need to make your cocktail.
The recipe card for our box included a Darnley’s Delight and Spiced Snapper cocktail, they tasted delicious especially the Darnley’s Delight. The recipes for both were easy to follow however we did struggle with some of the measurements as the printed card shows ‘ml’ and on the bottles supplied they were ‘cl’ so some converting was needed.
We both really like the concept of Tipple Box and having small amounts of what you need for each cocktail to serve 2 is ideal, you don’t always want to buy a full bottle of alcohol to try a new cocktail your not even sure you will like. Trying different recipes each month and making them at home is fun and a nice thing to do as a couple when you want to enjoy your weekend in without the hassle of leaving home. Including small amounts of everything you need in one box is clever and we were very impressed with the packaging and style of the box, the brands of alcohol and mixers were unique and not your average big brands which is positive knowing you will receive premium products.
In conclusion, we think £24 for a monthly subscription is a little steep but we appreciate that Tipple Box market themselves as a “premium craft spirit experience” and, when you think on a night out 4 cocktails would probably cost you around the same it’s a fair comparison. As a gift, this is a great box to receive and we certainly recommend you give it a try, to make that temptation a little easier here is an exclusive code for £12 off your first box!
