Well there has never been a better time to jump on the gin bandwagon. There are so many gin bars, and tonics these days, why not get a gin subscription box! Well as a “typical” mother I absolutely love gin so when I came across this subscription box I thought I would have to give it a try!! Every month Craft Gin Club send a mystery subscription box at the beginning of each month. Inside there will be a full sized bottle of craft gin, plus a 28 page magazine all about the products and some awesome cocktail recipes, plus some foodie items and a tonic.
As a lot of new companies start these days, this subscription box appeared on Dragons Den and got backing behind Sarah Willingham in the summer of 2016.
I was sent the subscription box to review, so I didn’t look at previous reviews too much before it arrived as I wanted a proper surprise! And what a surprise it was! It was sent in a very funky cardboard box with flowers all on the side, and was very carefully packaged. I was very excited as I am sure you can imagine!
When I opened it I was absolutely taken aback with what was inside.
There is a full sized bottle of gin that I had not come across before, a bottle of tonic water (again I only normally drink Fever Tree so this was a new one too), a small packet of classic sea salt nuts, some Whittard tea bags, 4 Monty Bojangles chocolates plus a 28 page magazine telling you all about it with some great recipes in. I was genuinely shocked with the contents and when I discovered the price was only £40 per month including postage (with £10 off the first order) I was super impressed.
These boxes can be either ordered monthly, bi monthly or quarterly all only for £40 per box. All of the gin sent can not be found in supermarkets which is nice so you are always getting a different bottle to try each month. I actually can’t find this bottle of gin for sale, but a 50cl sized bottle is £30 direct from the distillery. But as there was 70cl included in the box forgetting everything else the box was well worth it.
It arrived on a “school” day but there was nothing stopping me trying it out on the first night and it really tasted as nice as it looks, and the nuts, popcorn and chocolates got demolished too!
I have nothing negative to say about this subscription box, it is absolutely fantastic, I would certainly be purchasing again both for myself and for gifts. I love the fact you get a full sized bottle of gin along with other goodies that are different each month.
