Top notch

I’m very pleased about the box set. I’ll rate myself as a 4 out of 10 for a cocktail knowledge. The booklet it’s pretty cool. I especially like the history of the cocktail, equipment and that is what is for me the coolest thing about it. The hole package is of very good quality. I think you should get more pickles done. And I will definitely get the garlic moonshine as well. I personally do not really care about those butter tarts and dessert flavours. And to finish all your fruity flavours that I’ve tried, cherry ,blueberries and raspberries are absolutely delicious! Keep up the good work guys. I am a big fan and will spread the word as much as I can. Cheers Manuel Cantara

Enjoying Cocktails

It’s a great experience and fun! I love the ideal promoting other businesses as well. We also enjoy the surprises every month by getting cocktail tools and proper glassware. The only downfall is making the syrups for cocktails especially when you don’t have the products. Having to buy more items for the cocktails provided.

Party In a box!

This Top Shelf Guide to Cocktailing is a lot of fun. My wife and I would open the box, read up on what's in the box and make the Cocktails together! We have friends that has started this as well after sharing with us. You get all the tools you need as you build up your Cocktail bar. Cheers!

A Big Fan!

I purchased this subscription box for my husband because he has been wanting to learn more about creating the perfect cocktail. This ended up being the perfect gift for him because he loves learning and growing in this area. The box included a top notch tool that was perfect for him as a beginner. He also enjoyed creating a new drink. I would highly recommend this box as a fun, unique gift. The bonus? You will likely receive a high quality drink for your thoughtful gift giving.

So much fun and very educational.

We look forward to getting our new subscription box every month. Although we will never be master mixologists, we love to try the cocktails created by Top Shelf using the high quality products and great instructions. The bar tools are high quality too. I have recommended this to several friends.

Cocktailing guide

When subscribing I thought there might be more alcohol and bitters products. The cocktail tools in the kits were good quality, but I already had most of them. I thought it was a little pricey for what I received.

Really well thought out.

The boxes are extremely well thought out. Can't beat it really on that end. Little pricey though. Hard to justify long term for us.

Always awesome!

The Top Shelf subscription boxes NEVER disappoint! Love the surprises in every package; the value of the contents is substantial, and the recipes alone are worth every dime. A definite ‘must have’ in my bar!!

So much fun!!!

Before I wrote my review I thought I would add up the total of my first box (that I just received) if I were to buy each item separately and speak to that first and foremost because I think most people wonder if the price is well reflected in the items received. The answer to that is yes, I don't know the exact price of some specially produced curated items (and I won't spoil the surprise) but my estimate is that full price of those items together would equal to about the $99.95+taxe and that does not count the charity supported. So if I can buy all the items myself why bother, especially since I could choose items more desirable to me. Well, some of the items were completely new to me and I would not know about these products or know to put them together the way they were and that is why it's so much fun! The surprise and effort in the combination had value. Personally I loved every item in the box, so much so that it's inspired me to look up some of these great things (in particular the delicious mix) and I've bought some of them online... Talk about win win with the businesses they partner with. I absolutely loved the first box, I recommend it and I can't wait to get the next one!!!
