"Bought this for my husband who fancies himself as a bit of a Tom Cruise!! Received the product in good time for Christmas. The Cocktail set is really nice and of a good quality. Cocktail shaker and accessories are made with sturdy materials unlike other cocktail sets that are quite flimsy. Good to have the measures which ensures the cocktail measures are accurate every time. Bonus also with this set is the little cocktail recipe included. A really good gift."

"The set was great, just what I wanted, but unfortunately the box was a bit damaged and it wasn't very well presented. I'd hoped it'd be packed in a better way, because it seemed a bit tatty to hand the box over as a gift. The contents are as described though."
Juliette Ivie - London, 29th December '15
"This is a really great product! delivered in a purpose built box so all pieces had their own space, ensured no damages whilst in transit.
Product is of high quality and exactly as described and the book is great too! it even has a drinks glossary explaining different spirits!
Bought as a gift for my father and couldn't be happier with it.
I did read in a few other reviews people complaining about the masher not having teeth... it's not really a problem, does the job just fine!"

"Very impressed with the whole package and extremely good value for money"

Andy Staples - Tiptree, Essex, 15th August '15
"Bought this as a gift. It came in a box rather than all the pieces loose which was a great bonus. Really good price for what you get and everything you need to get started making cocktails."

Caroline Nicol - Clydebank, 27th October '14
"Ordered my ice crusher and cocktail starter kit, delivery was quick and hassle free and I was kept informed every step of the the way as to where my order was until delivery. Products are great, the ice crusher is sturdy and dose what it says on the tin. Also impressed with the cocktail starter kit, has everything you need to be knocking them out like Tom Cruise in no time - the instruction book helps too!"
Ian Greason - Cheshire, 6th August '14
"This set has all you need to get you started, and the items contained in it are good quality, not cheap, poor quality ones thrown in to make up the set. The cocktail shaker is large, well made and robust, and better than another one I bought separately. The book of cocktails is simple and unfussy and contains recipes for all the essential drinks you will want to make, plus a few more!"
Louise Brown - Hampshire, 28th May '13
"This is a solid starter set, but one complaint is that even when tightly closing the top of the shaker it does not prevent slight spills."
Michael Tan - London, 11th April '13
Drinkstuff says: We're sorry that you received a faulty shaker Michael, we hope that you have now received your replacement unit as requested.
"Ordered this as a 21st birthday gift. The packaging was sensible but a bit boring so I repacked it in gift style. It was a big hit - her favourite pressie!"
Jude - County Durham, 28th August '12
"Speedy delivery, nicely packaged, no creases in my book, has some great recipes!! Good sturdy set and well worth buying."
Salina - Leeds, 14th July '12
"Was looking for a well priced cocktail shaker that would do the job. This shaker came as a set and was cheaper than buying an individual shaker from M&S. Also comes with a book of cocktails for insight. Products were well packaged to prevent dents and damage to the items."
Vincent - London, 19th June '12
"I just got this in my first order. Placed my order on wednesday night and it was on my door friday afternoon. Now that's what you call service!"

"Received this in the post yesterday and could not believe the good quality of all the products. Contained EVERYTHING you would need to make the perfect cocktail. Strong and sturdy and and an absolute bargain. The cocktail book was an added bonus!!"
Suki M - West Midlands, 12th June '12
"Due to the low price I was a little unsure about what the quality of this shaker and accessories would be like before ordering. I've got to say that I have been EXTREMELY impressed with the quality of everything that came with it. The shaker is a very good size and feels of very good quality and the same can be said of the rest of the accessories.
Great kit for a great price and gives you everything you need to start making some awesome cocktails."
