Press and Social Media Talking About SaloonBox:

"Meet SaloonBox, a cocktail kit subscription-and-delivery service that’s kind of like Blue Apron for good drinks made by your favorite bartenders"

                                                                     - UrbanDaddy

"As people who love a good cocktail, but don't always have the spirits necessary to make some of the more inventive drinks in our cocktail books, this subscription looks right up our alley."
                                                                     - Apartment Therapy / TheKitchn

SaloonBox brings curated cocktails to your door

  • Easy - Making cocktails at home is no longer a hassle. SaloonBox gives you a new cocktail recipe each week.
  • Craft cocktails at home - No need to travel to find cocktails made by the best bartenders. Perfect if you have kids or want to stay in while still having fun.
  • Good - Each recipe is curated by the best mixologists in the country so you know you're getting something good. 

FINALLY, EVERYTHING YOU NEED

  • No missing items - Once SaloonBox is fully launched post-Kickstarter, each box will have all the ingredients needed to make your cocktails. No need to run to the store for bitters. No full-sized bottles lying around in the end. [Kickstarter rewards will not include alcohol].
  • Unique recipes - You get a recipe card with instructions on how to make the drink along with background information on the mixologist, their bar and the history of the cocktail. Each week will feature a new recipe for you to try.

LOOK LIKE A MIXOLOGY PRO

  • Create - Each box features one cocktail recipe crafted by an expert mixologist, complete with images to help guide you and all the fresh ingredients you need. 
  • Learn - You will be able to visit the SaloonBox site to watch how to create the cocktail. You get to learn the history of the cocktails and the spirits used. We'll also give you background information on the mixologist and their bar.

SAVE MONEY

  • Discover - You could easily spend $100 getting all the bottles needed to make a specialty cocktail. These full-sized bottles may end up sitting in your cabinet. SaloonBox gives you all you need to make 2 cocktails at home. If you like it, you can always order more through our retail partner.
  • Experiment - Our idea for SaloonBox is that you will be able to try a wide array of whiskeys, tequilas, rums and vodkas without dropping hundreds of dollars on full-sized bottles. [Note that Kickstarter rewards will not include alcohol].

A DELIGHTFUL EXPERIENCE

  • Enjoy - SaloonBox is perfect for a date night or when hanging out with friends. Share the delicious cocktail you created with someone special….or have seconds. Each weekly kit contains enough ingredients for two servings of one featured cocktail. It’s all nestled into a well padded (and sometimes chilled depending on the ingredients) package.
  • Gifts - It makes a fun gift for the cocktail connoisseur in your life. With Mother's Day and Father's Day coming up and graduations around the corner, SaloonBox is the perfect gift to give instead of just buying flowers for mom or a tie for dad.

BE SOCIAL

  • Share - Post your creation with #saloonbox and we'll be sure to highlight it on our social channels. 
  • Rewards - The photos above are from the cocktail recipes offered in our rewards section.

LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR NEXT SHIPMENT

  • Repeat -  Each kit will include a different recipe delivered to your door weekly. For now, get a sneak peak by ordering one of our preview boxes. When we are ready to start our weekly service, you’ll be among the first to know!

TIMELINE

Risks and challenges

Product availability:
Our ingredients are top of the line and, although we’ve already confirmed with providers that our orders can be fulfilled, there’s always a possibility that a glitch occurs in fulfilling our orders. If this happens we will substitute that item with something equally top-notch.

Shipping delays and handling:
Despite our perfect planning and packaging the delivery service might experience a delay or our shipments might be handled a little too roughly. If you don’t receive your SaloonBox on time or something was damaged en route, let us know!

Alcohol laws:
We plan to partner with an alcohol retailer, which has a liquor license and can ship to most US states. However, alcohol laws can change and they vary by jurisdiction. We have several retail partners that we can turn to should there be an issue with our main retail partner. Our Kickstarter rewards don't include spirits so there won't be a problem shipping those.
