"The cocktail making set was excellent. It was well presented in a box and the accessories were good quality. Excited to make my cocktails for my party - very happy."
Jenni - Norfolk, 9th July '14
"I purchased this item for a quick party I had thrown. The delivery and the quality for the price I paid I was very happy."
Michael Fisher - London, 21st May '13
"I ordered this for my daughter, who has worked in a cocktail bar - she was very impressed with the set and made us some fantastic cocktails using it! It's great value for money."
Angie - Worcester, 31st December '12
"All of the items I ordered arrived in good time and appear of decent value. Unfortunately, the Hawthorne strainer as described on the website as being included, was missing."
Susan D'Arcy - Glasgow Scotland, 18th December '12
"The set arrived in good time and was exactly what is advertised. For the price, it is good value for money and has been useful so far to allow me to make cocktails at home. As someone who works in the hospitality industry using quality equipment, the products I received so far meet the same standards.
As a starter kit, I would definitely recommend this purchase."
Phil Jones - Liverpool, 20th November '12
"What a bargain, I made some yummy dark rum mojitos with this kit just the other day. I used the White Plastic Ice Crusher
(bought separately) to crush my ice then used the rest of the kit to mix up my liquids! The shaker is very good quality, was a little bit scared of bashing it and shaking it about but it did the job perfectly! The glass is quite thick so it can sure handle the bashing and shaking well... I am sure this kit is going to last me a very long time and many cocktails will be made in the future! I am already planning on a girly cocktail night just to show off my skills ;)"

Chris Bailey - Nottingham - England, 13th July '12
"Bought for a BBQ and cocktail party. It's definitely a good quality product, and would recommend."
Robert Cruickshanks - Aberdeen, 4th June '12
"Fantastic product, looks substantially more expensive than it cost. Great value for money and fast, well packaged delivery. Will definitely recommend to others."
Caroline Jones - Heywood, 16th May '12
"Really nice product for amazing price :)"
Gergana - London, 9th May '12
"Where can you go wrong at this price, everything I needed for making great cocktails except the drink itself. The glass itself is good and heavy, everything else looks like it will last for years, was not expecting such good quality at such a low price. Arrived in a couple of days, again great stuff from drinkstuff 5*."
Stephen - Ireland, 25th April '12
"This is a perfect kit if you are starting out in making cocktails. All the basic tools you require in one package and at an extremely reasonable price too."
Kimberley Hampson - Eastbourne, East Sussex, 11th March '12
"The cocktail set was very well packaged and good quality. It was purchased as a present for my boyfriend and he loved it. I would buy a set like this again from drinkstuff.com."
Anonymus - Glasgow, 20th February '12
"Everything arrived quickly thanks to drinkstuff's legendary service. In general, I was happy although the muddler does smell a bit odd (probably the varnish used) and the metal disc on the spoon was a bit wonky. However, for the price, I can't really complain. The shaker itself is very nice with a sturdy glass and highly polished tin."
Jon Mathias - Bristol, 15th January '12
"Very decent material for the price."
Thomas - Belgium, 9th January '12
"My partner and I are avid cocktail drinkers and party throwers and as our repertoire increased as did our need for new equipment. I bought this set for my partner for Christmas and we haven't been disappointed. It arrived quickly and includes everything you would need to show off your skills (or look like you have some at least!) The Boston shaker is fantastic quality, the different sized measures are very handy and although I haven't quite got the knack of layering cocktails with the spoon, I at least look like I know what I'm doing with the strainer and muddler. A great buy!"

"The quality of the cocktail set was amazing. I only paid £10 for this set when it was on offer and didn't expect too much from the quality, I couldn't have been more wrong! The service I have received has been amazing. Would 100% buy from here again!"
Vanessa Robert - Aberdeen, 13th December '11
"I was very pleased with this set. The shaker is a good size and nice thick glass. The strainer fits a treat. Nice measuring cups also, 25 and 50 mls.
Richard - UK, 13th December '11
"We bought two of these sets for a cocktail party and we love them! They are fab and very good value too... we've already decided to use them again at Christmas, new year and have a cocktail party in January! Love them! Fab service from drinkstuff too - will definitely be buying again!"
Rhianne Vaughan - Surrey, 8th December '11
"This is a great set, comes in a sturdy package which will be able to be used for quite some time to store the items all in the one place. The items within are really good quality, in particular the measures which look as if they have come straight from a bar! Very happy with this product."
Tracy Bell - Carrickfergus, N Ireland, 1st December '11
"I bought this kit for a friend, and he was so excited that he started making us a cocktail right away. The package was delivered withing 5 days. Great."
Dusko - Denmark, 17th November '11
"All of the equipment here is of a good standard and this kit comes at a great price for anyone planning to make some quality cocktails at home!"
Jon Cuthbertson - United Kingdom, 7th September '11
"This kit is very good for preparing some cocktails at home. Nice Boston shaker and strainer. It's worth it!"
Fabricio R Campos - London, 31st August '11
"This set was really useful (and essential!) for my first cocktail party. The Boston Shaker is really classy and looks so professional, more professional than other one-piece styles. My guests really did think they were in a swanky bar!
I plan to buy another set so that the original Boston Shaker can be washed whilst making the next cocktail. The shaker alone is £4.99 so I would be happy paying £15.99 and getting a whole new set with all the trimmings just because it is so fantastic! It would also mean somebody else could whip up a cocktail at the same time!
I had the products laid out on a stainless steel tray when my guests arrived and they were immediately commenting on how great the products looked and "Where did I get them from?" They were really impressed by their value and were keen to browse drinkstuff. They were secretly jealous I'm sure! A MUST HAVE set for a home cocktail party!"

"This item is exactly as described and great value for money, gift box an added bonus. Also one of the measures was missing and after sending an email, a replacement was sent the very next day, at no cost to myself! Fantastic team, items, and delivery schedule! Would really advise buying from drinkstuff!"
Sam Walker - Cumbria, 7th August '11
"Bought this as a birthday present and it was very well received. The contents of the box are of good quality and you get everything you need to get cracking on the Mojitos, or whatever cocktail takes your fancy.
Much prefer Boston shakers to the Manhattan versions, hence picking this set over others. The wooden muddler is a nice touch, and definitely easier than trying to crush things with the back of a spoon. If you want a decent starter cocktail set, buy this. If you want something more advanced, Drinkstuff has your back there too!"
Brendan Carroll - Stevenage, Herts, 26th July '11

"This product is exactly what I wanted!! Each item was carefully packed in a manila cardboard box with cut outs for each component, so everything arrived in pristine condition. Each item has a quality look and feel to it. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone who fancies starting out as a home mixologist!!"
Graham Jeffreson - Salisbury, Wilts, UK, 29th June '11
"I actually bought this cocktail set for the bar I recently started managing - cocktails are an area we want to move into and I thought this would be at least a starting point - and in any case the extra thimble measures are always handy. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the items for the price, the thimbles are Beaumont and the bar spoon is a Bonzer, for example - to get barware from well respected brands in a kit of this price I thought was excellent. The shaker tin and glass seem well made, and the muddler seems to be up to the job as well, so on the whole I consider this kit to be extremely good value."
Christopher - Edinburgh, 31st May '11
"After searching the internet I could not find any deals that compared to this. It is excellent value for money. I was slightly apprehensive about the quality of the product as I had never ordered from drinkstuff.com before. That being said, I received my Home Cocktail Set very quickly and the products were second to none. I would recommend this product to anyone who has an interest in making delicious cocktails!"

"I bought this to make a few cocktails for a party and I am very impressed. It is certainly not the sort of "party kit" you find in the supermarkets - all of the equipment is professional standard, the thimble measures are a very solid stainless steel as is the spoon. The Boston Shaker is full size and with a very nice weight and it fits the Hawthorne very neatly."
Haolin - Dublin, Ireland, 26th February '11
"Exactly what it says on the tin! All items are good quality and work. Just what every aspiring home cocktail bar needs."
Geoff Scott - UK, 7th February '11
"Just received my order of home cocktail set, a bargain for what's in the box. I've bought the set to do some cocktail mixing at my friend's 40th in April, should do the trick. Off to research cocktails now, thanks!"
Anthony Evans - Ceredigion, 23rd January '11
"After a lot of research I ordered this set for my son who had completed a cocktail course. I was surprised at what good value it was and suspected that he might think it was okay but not "the best". On the contrary, he was very pleased with it, said it was good sturdy equipment and exactly what they had used for training. I thought it was very good quality for the price - and I had really shopped around!"

Craig - South East, 31st December '10
"I bought this kit as a present for my brother in law and he loved it, for such a cheap kit the quality was outstanding offering a good starting block for the true amateur barman, may it bring many, erm, sober?? nights of fun!!
Also noted that in a time of bad weather with snow covering much of the country, the order arrived very quickly, I will definitely be ordering from Drinkstuff again."
Paul - Northamptonshire, 23rd December '10
"So happy with this item bought for Christmas to treat the family to some cocktails, it's awesome can't wait to try it out. Great price, great service A++++++ Drinkstuff delivered quickly for the time of year too, look forward to dealing with you again soon."
Angela Sloan - South Ayrshire, 16th December '10
"Great little home set of bar tools, with all the essentials for making most cocktails, and at a great value price. The muddler is really light weight, but everything else is great quality. I was lucky I found this set before buying it all individually for a heck of a lot more. Recommended for any budding cocktail enthusiast."
Charlotte - Cardiff, 15th December '10
"For a basic starter kit, this one does what it says on the tin. Have used this to make several concoctions with no complaints and we are thoroughly enjoying experimenting with new cocktails. Price was reasonable, delivery was prompt, can't really see what more you could ask for. I'd recommend this product for hours of entertainment."
Kevin - Scotland, 30th November '10
"Great quality, and very cheap for what you get. Thanks Drinkstuff."
Jamie - Cheltenham, 14th November '10
"I wanted something different for a gift for my best man. He was impressed with this. The quality of the set was fantastic and great value. I have seen cocktail shakers without any accessories for more money which have been poorer quality.
This set has everything you need to get started and if more items were desired your could purchase them with the money you save on buying them individually."
Colin - Newport, 5th October '10
"Good quality products however disappointed in the packaging."
Sarah Bradley - Glasgow, Scotland, 25th September '10

"Superb cocktail set and has everything beginners need to start with. If you are wondering how to use the Boston Cocktail Shaker Tin & Glass there are plenty of videos online and it's really easy to use. Everything in the kit is excellent quality and a bargain price, saving almost £18 if you purchased seperately. There is nothing in the pack that I haven't used yet."
Laura - Darlington, 22nd September '10

"Everything you need to make different types of cocktails. Have used all items in the set. The Professional Boston Cocktail Shaker Tin & Glass takes some practise to separate so practise before you shake in front of people."
