Yes, you read that correctly. There is now a monthly subscription service that delivers cocktails and scrumptious snacks straight to your door. Founded in 2014, Tipple Box is a Scottish-based company with humble beginnings that is now the UK’s No. 1 cocktail club. Each month a panel of experts source premium spirits and exclusive ingredients to curate delicious recipes to be mixed in the comfort of your own home.
What’s great about Tipple Box is that your subscription can be paused or cancelled at any point (take a look at their various packages here) and there are even limited edition boxes such as the Great British Gin Tasting Set that can be purchased individually with free delivery (hello Father’s Day!). This month’s box contained all the ingredients to make two delicious cocktails that I’d never heard of before, an Orange Lady and a Westminster Abbey Martini also know as a Bronx.
Your box comes with a recipe card with all the measurements, the method and a short history about the drink. The Orange Lady, for example, is believed to have been named after F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wife, Zelda, after a mixologist made one for the platinum blonde during her stay at the Savoy.
June’s ingredients included 2x Sipsmith Dry Gin (5cl each), Sweet Vermouth (5cl), Sipsmith London Cup (5cl), Frobishers Squeezed Orange Juice (250ml), aromatic bitters and syrup. Plus, I also received a huge bag of Metcalfe’s Skinny Popcorn in Salted Caramel.
Our busy schedules often mean that we don’t have time for a cheeky night out or even a bit of me time. Tipple Box is a brilliant monthly treat as each delivery gives you the perfect excuse to get the girls round, plan a date night or even just have a cosy date night in front of the telly when the kiddos are asleep. Tipple Box is a fun, indulgent little treat that anyone who loves a wee tipple is sure to love.
