Frequently Asked Questions
Great question! Mainly the difference is cost. If you are skeptical about monthly subscriptions and want to see what we are all about, you can choose to build a cocktail box for a one time charge in our "Shop Kits" section. These buildable boxes consist of fan favorite past boxes and recipes that we keep on hand and ship asap after ordering. We also offer our "feature box of the month" in this section. If you choose the feature box in the "Shop kits" section, it will ship with all of our subscribers boxes when we have that specific box ready to go. If you want to save some money you can join our monthly subscription and each month we will send you a new box starting with our next featured box.
Booze is the easiest ingredient for you to pick up (usually discounted) at your local liquor store and the hardest element for us to ship. If we included the alcohol, the cost per bottle & shipping costs would be unappealing and someone of legal drinking age would have to be home to sign for the package. We instead chose to focus on the harder to find, more exotic ingredients. Trust us, spending your Friday evening looking for obscure ingredients like charred cedar bitters or a kalamansi limes isn’t a lot of fun. You grab the bottle of booze from the liquor store in your neighborhood (you may already have a bottle at home) and we’ll do the rest!
Our Crafty Cocktail boxes come with 3 unique cocktail recipes designed by our master mixologist and the hard to find ingredients to make 4 of each cocktail. That's 12 total cocktails in a box! Our Crafty Lite box has 2 unique recipes and makes a total of 8 cocktails.
As is the case with any fine craft, having the right tools for the job is very important. At the very least we recommend having a proper cocktail shaker, a 1 & 2oz jigger, a muddling stick, a fine mesh strainer and a hawthorne strainer. We have complete bar tool kits available for purchase in our shop + section.
We love working with fresh ingredients! We try and include them in our recipes whenever possible and hand select the freshest and healthiest looking produce we can find. These ingredients should remain useable for up to 10 days after you receive your box. Occasionally some fresh fruit or herbs might get a little janky on route so please use your best judgement and always remember to wash your fruit before use.
ALL of our subscription packages are pre-paid and will auto-renew on the 15th of each month. For example, if you ordered a 3-month subscription on June 5th, you would receive our July, August & September boxes and your subscription would renew on September 15th. If you are on a month to month plan, we will send you our new box on the first Monday of each month and you will be billed on the 15th of each new month. If you wish to cancel or skip a box please do so prior to the 15th of the month
We are located in Calgary AB and ship Canada wide. Unfortunately we do not ship to the US at this time.
All shipping costs are calculated at the checkout using our special discounted Canada Post rate. They are very resonable for a large 8lb box.
We are located in Calgary AB and ship across the country using Canada Post. Our subscription boxes ship out on the first Monday of each month. Our recipes and feature spirit change monthly so we need time to source our new ingredients and curate our next box offering. Typically, you will see your Subscription cocktail box on your doorstep in 2-7 business days after we ship depending on proximity and Canada Post's effectiveness. Our "Shop Kits" one time boxes are available immediately to order but usually take a day or two to procure the fresh ingredients before we ship out. If you are worried about hitting a certain delivery date, please email us to confirm
Sure! Skipping a box is easy. You have full control of this in your customer account. Just log in an pause, skip or cancel as you see fit. Please keep in mind that we reveal our feature box at the beginning of the month so if you want to skip it, you need to do this on or before the 14th of the month when the recharge hits. Your subscription will not auto-renew until all of the boxes on your purchased subscription package have shipped. We do urge customers to give each of our featured boxes a chance. A Crafty Cocktails box subscription is all about education in the world of cocktail creation, and it is very hard to learn new things if you don’t step outside your comfort zone. We strongly encourage you to make your cocktails with the recommended spirit for the month, even if you think you don’t like it. If a recipe is well balanced and acutely aware of the flavor profile of its given base spirit, the result can surprise even the most discerning of palettes. Let us show how something you thought you disliked, can become something you absolutely love.
Not a problem! Since we don’t include the booze our boxes don’t require a signature. Your Crafty box will be on your doorstep, or in your PO box anxiously awaiting your arrival.
Baby come back! We will be devastated to see you go, but totally understand life happens and therefore have made it easy to cancel. You can cancel your subscription anytime from your customer account and there will be no further auto-renewals. When you place your first order our website auto-emails an invite to setup your account. If you don't see it immediately it may have been filtered into your spam folder. Let us know if you need us to send it again. Once activated you can skip boxes, pause shipments/billing or cancel your account outright. We do not manage customers accounts. Please note cancelling will not affect your previously purchased packages so you will still receive the boxes you initially purchased. If there is an immediate need to cancel after you have been recharged please reach out via email and we will consider your refund with a restocking fee to cover service fees etc
Absolutely! You can order past boxes in our Build-A-Box section while supplies last. These boxes sometimes include the fresh ingredients, but if we do not have them on had or they wont ship well seasonly, we will ask you to grab them. Don't fret! We will make sure to list exactly what you need to pick up. Usually its just a few small items like a couple limes and a ginger root. Easy peasy
No worries. Shoot us a quick email and if it’s something easy for you to pick up, we will refund the cost of the item. If it’s a hard to find ingredient we will ship you out a new one asap.
Gifting a cocktail box is super fun and thoughtful. We have options to gift single boxes or subscriptions. We can send out gift boxes usually within a day or two or delay until a later date but send an email to your giftee letting them know a cocktail gift is on route. This is a great option if you are last minute shopping. Just pick your date and we will send them a branded email with a custom note from you notifying them they have cocktail mail on the way!
You bet! Typically a gift subscription purchase would mean we would send out our next feature box as your recipients first box . If you purchase a single gift box and want us to notify them on a specific date please reach out via email and let us know and we will do our best to accommodate
