There are so many subscription boxes on the market now, it’s becoming a little confusing to know which is which.
But I have come across a subscription box that I think is unique and would make a really special Christmas or birthday present – particularly for stressed parents!
Microbarbox is a monthly tasting club designed for those who want to try different alcoholic drinks and cocktails without investing in full-sized bottles.
Each Microbarbox contains a carefully chosen selection of wines, spirits, mixers and snacks.
I was sent the October box to review and it came beautifully packaged in a black box with the contents wrapped in bright lime green tissue on a bed of hot pink paper shavings.
You can’t immediately see what’s in the box as you have to unwrap everything which adds an extra element of surprise.
My box contained:-
* Cawston Press Cloudy Apple Sparkling Apple Soft Juice Drink x 330 ml
* Funkin Mixer Mojito x 120g
* La Perle by Paul Sapin Merlot Pay d’Oc x 187 ml
* Bacardi white rum x 50 ml
* Coole Swan Irish Cream Liqueur x 50 ml
* Feigling’s Apple Pie Liqueur x 20 ml
* Raisthorpe Wild Vodka Toffee/Caramel Liqueur x 5 cl
* Cambrook Sesame Peanuts x 45g
* Schwermer Zombie Liqueur Chocolates x 50g
The box contains information cards which show you how to combine the drinks to make a variety of cocktails.
For example, you can combine the vodka, apple liqueur to make a Toffee Apple cocktail.
or you could combine the vodka with the Coole Swan cream liqueur to make a Toffeetini.
Microbarbox offer 3, 6 and 12 month gift subscriptions and have a great range of single boxes available in their online store for people who are generally tricky to buy for.
Each box is £24 + £3.50 p&p which, given that one large glass of wine in Cardiff Bay is around the £9 mark is good value. Single boxes are themed, such as the Birthday Box for £29 and the Christmas Gin Box at £35. There are some great Christmas present ideas which are far more exciting than socks!
I won’t spoil the fun of discovering the other cocktail combinations in my box because I have an October Microbarbox to give away.
