Tipple Box Valentine Giveaway (Closed)

The last two years have seen a surge of specialist food and drink subscription services (such as the Carnivore Club cured meat and Beer 52 craft beer boxes I reviewed previously).

The latest to come to my attention is Tipple Box, a monthly cocktail subscription created by founder Sonny Charles. After launching just last month with the help of crowdfunding, Sonny is now ready for cocktail lovers to sign up. Each month, he sends out two cocktail recipes with ingredients (spirits, mixers and anything else in the recipe) and mixing jar. All you need to add is the ice.

Pete and I enjoyed the two cocktails in our Tipple Box, one a combination of gin, marmalade and mixer, the other a blend of vodka, strawberry jam and mixer, though it’s a shame the two recipes were so similar. I’d like to see a little more creativity in future boxes (small batch spirits and mixers, rather than mainstream brands, and the addition of intriguing bitters, fruit and herb syrups and cordials, flavoured salts and sugars – the kinds of things a keen cocktail maker might not readily be able to source themselves in the supermarket).

But it’s a great start for a new business, very nicely presented and a rather lovely idea for an intimate night in making and drinking cocktails together. Of course, you can buy this to give to your loved one in person but I think it would also be a charming gift to send via the post to a LDR lover, ready and waiting to make cocktails the next time you get together.

One box costs £24 including delivery in the UK, with reductions in price for longer subscriptions.

    My favourite Valentine’s memory was the year we decided not to go out for dinner for the first time. Instead we bought lovely steaks from our favourite butcher, and picked a really nice bottle of wine to go with them. So much more relaxing than the over-crowded restaurant of the year before. And not a silk rose, or endless repeats of Lady in Red to be seen or heard!

    My other favourite memory is the card my husband bought me for our first married Valentine’s Day. He doesn’t normally buy me a card but he found one that said ‘To my wife, you’re just my cup of tea’ on the front! The most perfect card imaginable. I’ve now got it framed!

    I love all the subscription boxes but usually hop from one to another as I just can’t afford them all. I tried a cocktail before and really like the idea of it. The presentation is beautiful.

    My favourite Valentine’s Day memory was the first Valentine’s Day my husband (then just my boyfriend but I was sure he was “the one” so it made the day seem extra special – the roses helped too!).

    My favorite Valentine’s Day memory is when I was a little kid and we would exchange those cute little kids valentines and put them in the envelope on each others desks.

    My best Valentine’s Day memory was when I realised me and my wife both hated going out for valentines meals, we now go out the week before or after for a nice meal instead.

    My favourite Valentines Day memory was when the local florist came to my door with a single red rose; I do not know to this day who sent it.

    It would have to be the red roses which I still have no idea where they came from. I’d moved to a new town and they came out of the blue. Whoever it was, they gave me the boost I really needed.

    Receiving Valentines cards every year from my elderly neighbour. She’s passed away now and at the time it seemed really uncool, but looking back I can appreciate what a sweet and kind gesture it was.

    I actually started dating my husband on valentines day because I sent him a valentines day card and apparently he promtly dashed to the corner shop to get me one in return and asked me out…. – so the day is quite special to us!

    We don’t really do Valentine’s Day. We celebrate the 21st instead, which is the anniversary of when we got engaged – and it will be 40 years next year.

    My boyfriend (now husband) once laid clues around the house which eventually led to the remote control for the dvd player and it had a note on it saying press play, when I did the film Romeo & Juliet came on and my boyfriend appeared with flowers, chocolates and a bottle of wine!

    The day he bought me toffees not chocolates – it showed he had been listening!

    My favourite valentines day memory was my partner and I’s firstvalentine’s day. He arranged for me to go get my hair cut coloured and styled, he bought me a very beautiful and expensive (I protested about this) He then got very dressed up and took me out for a romantic dinner. It might not sound too great but we where about 16 and goth’s. This kind of thing just didn’t happen!

    Our sofa got delivered on Valentine’s Day 2 years ago… Prior to which we’d spent 2 months with just a beanbag to sit on! We spent the night drinking cocktails and slouching, perfect 🙂 a TippleBox would be a perfect birthday present for the settee!!! X
