Quarterly Co. - Mixed Up

Quarterly Co. is a slightly different kind of subscription box company.  The way it works is you pick a contributor you would like to receive a curated gift from anywhere from $50-$100 and every 3 months you will receive your item in the mail from them.  With each gift you receive the story behind it. This subscription is for the Culinary box. Each shipment is curated by a different person in the food field.

This months box featured editors of the book "Mixed Up", Nick Mamatas and Molly Tanzer. 

Price $75 every 3 months.

The good:

Variety: There are lots of different curators to choose from.

Something different: This is definitely different from other subscription companies

Commitment issues? Don't want to make a monthly commitment but still want a treasure?  You can get a quarterly treasure. 

The not so good:

Don't like waiting: If you don't like waiting this may be torture for you. 

Quarterly Co. Culinary Box

Contents of box with approximate retail price:

Mixed Up exclusive annotated edition. Value = $14.97

Liber & Co. Real Grenadine. Value = $10.00

Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. Vermouth Brined Olives. Value = $14.00

Royal Rose Natural Cocktail Syrup. Value = $8.00

Fabbri's Amarena Wild Cherries in Syrup. Value = $6.95

Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. Aromatic Bitters. Value = $12.00

The approximate value of this box is $65.92. I was pretty excited about this box. One of my goals this year was to try as many different cocktails as possible. When we travel we always bring back alcohol that is specific to that area of the world or something we can get in USA. Now we have quite the alcohol collection and I need some inspiration for drinks. The Mixed Up book isn't even out yet so that's pretty exciting AND it has sticky notes throughout that won't be in the store version. Everything in this box is great except the olives. I'm not a fan of olives and especially not green olives. The boyfriend likes them though so they won't go to waste. 

Verdict: This box has great bar theme. I can't wait to start mixing!
