What’s a Microbarbox?
Microbarbox tasting club is a bar in a box with a subscription service where you get gift boxes each month, containing cocktails, alcoholic drinks and snacks. The perfect way to treat yourself.
Featuring the most exclusive spirits and mixers, these boxes are a treasure chest of extraordinary treats.
It’s perfect for when you just want to unwind or even as a taster for those special occasions.
They include trial sizes of various cocktails, mixers and spirits. Each monthly box content is different so you’ll always be surprised. Exciting, I know! You get to try so many different flavours. Once you’ve had the trial sizes and you like it, Microbarbox can source the full size bottle for you.
What’s In The Box
Everything you need to make a fabulous cocktail! Did someone say cocktail? That’s right up my street.
The contents include:-
Les Olives du Marche’
I love olives and this was my favourite item in the November Microbarbox. They were both green and natural black olives, pitted and marinated in EVOO (extra virgin olive oil). They were a real treat.
Lyme Bay Apricot Brandy
I found this brandy quite pleasant tasting and would get a full size bottle to keep in my cabinet so I can impress my family and friends when they pop round unannounced. It had a sweet, distinctive flavour which was easy on my palate.
I found this vodka very strong but lovers of vodka would appreciate it.
Chase potato vodka
Very smooth but too sharp for me.
It left a weird taste in my mouth. I’m not a fan.
Small can of Schweppes.
I like mine shaken, not stirred. I really enjoyed the martini and highly recommend it.
The contents were meant to be shaken and strained then garnished with the lovely olives but as I’m not a huge fan of strong alcoholic liqueurs, I sipped mine slowly over the course of a week. Lightweight, I know.
These can be used to make the Americano, the first cocktail James Bond drank in his debut film, Casino Royale. It can also make the Vodka Martini, using Chase potato vodka. It’s really smooth.
To be completely honest, I’ve never been a fan of subscription services but for Microbarbox I made an exception. I decided to support them because I know this business has great potential.
