Speakeasy Co. specializes in small-batch stuff
What's in it: All the mixers needed for two pairs of original cocktails, including small-batch and/or house-made fruit syrups, bitters, garnishes, tinctures, and sodas with the option to add small bottles of artisanal liquor for a higher monthly rate
How it works: San Diego-based Speakeasy Co. has it all: ultra-sleek product design, creative recipes, detailed instructions (including links to beautifully shot video tutorials), and fresh, specialty ingredients, plus a bunch of bar tools for purchase just to seal the deal. Customers choose between the Prohibition package (no liquor, $19.99 monthly) or the Speakeasy package (a couple teeny liquor bottles, $34.99 monthly) and can also browse optional add-ons like glassware and featured spirits.
Speakeasy Co. partners with (mostly local) distilleries, barkeeps, and bars to keep things fresh and each kit contains all the ingredients required to make two sets of original craft cocktails. If you're interested in emerging brands and off-the-beaten-path recipes, this might be the starter subscription for you -- and hey, the price is right.
