While I love my homemade sodas, I’m a big fan of mixing up my drink, from finding new wines, cocktails, or craft sodas to try.
I’ve rounded up the top subscription boxes for wine, alcohol, and non-alcoholic drinks.
Looking to join a cocktail club? Or simply tired of buying the same wine? These drink boxes are for you! They’re perfect for a date night, birthday gift, or consider it for this upcoming father’s day– especially if your dad loves a fine wine or craft whiskey!

BEst Wine SUbscriptions & Clubs
With WINC, you get both value and get to try some, very good wines. This isn’t your typical subscription box. You become a member for $59/month. That is then used as credit to build your own box that month of the wines that you want to try. When you sign up, they’ll do a brief quiz so they can customize the recommendations. But, unlike other subscriptions, you still get to choose what you want! You can add additional bottles as well. If you get a case (12 bottles), members get an extra 10% off.
Wine Insiders is a great way to try new wine on a budget. You’ll get 15 wines for just $89 — that’s less than $6 a bottle!
However, this box is less customizable. You can choose if you want red wines, white wines, or a mixed case, but otherwise you’re going to be getting their wines of the month. They have some very good wines in here, but there’s always the chance you’ll get one you don’t enjoy too.
Don’t want to commit to new wines every month? Check out VineBox instead. They offer a quarterly subscription of wines chosen for the season. These aren’t full bottles, but tasters of a lot of very good wines. It’s ideal for someone who wants to try some new wines, but you don’t drink very often.
Plus, the packaging is great! It feels like such an elegant gift.
4. First Leaf
First Leaf offers great quality wines at an affordable price. Take the quiz, and they’ll curate a collection of 6 wines that match your preferences.
You’ll get 6 bottles for $39.99 per month.
Best Alcohol Subscriptions
Get everything you need to make 4 cocktails – including the booze. Every box comes with a recipe card, garnish or bar tool, carbonated mixer, juice mixer, and the alcohol.
They also offer a cheaper plan if you want to add your own alcohol. The plans (with alcohol) start at $37.99.
Taster’s Club brings some of the best and hardest to find liquors straight to your door. You can choose which club you want to join (Whiskey, Bourbon, Scotch, Gin, etc.) or subscribe to get a different type of booze each month so you can stock up your bar.
7. Mash & Grape
The Mashbox by Mash & Grape is a similar subscription service to Taster’s Club (as well as very similarly priced.) They curate a new Whisky or Bourbon every month for you to try, and send the bottle to your door.
8. Saloon Box
Saloon Box includes everything you need to make 4 cocktails. Best part? You’ll find top-shelf alcohol in the boxes that normally don’t come in miniature sizes for you to try. Subscriptions are $53 per month.
Make 12 cocktails – everything is included (except the alcohol). You’ll find the mixers, garnishes and more. Just add your favorite whisky, vodka, or whatever the recipe requires, and you can have an impressive date night or cocktail party with your friends!
Because Shaker & Spoon doesn’t include the alcohol, it comes out cheaper at just $40/month. It’s great for someone who wants to try new cocktail recipes, and you already have your bar stocked with your favorite liquor varieties.
Best non-alcoholic drink Subscriptions
10. Curious Elixirs
Don’t want to drink alcohol? There’s a subscription box for you too! Still enjoy trying new “mocktails” with the Curious Elixirs box. They have speciality crafted alcoholic drinks you’ll love.
11. Vintage Tea Time
This one is for all of the tea lovers out there! Every box includes a vintage teacup, a variety of quality teas, a book, and a surprise in every box. Think of it as your very own tea party, straight to your door every month.
Unfortunately, my favorite soda subscription is closed during the pandemic, as they haven’t been able to process orders. It’s a small family-run business that delivers 12 different sodas every month for you to sample. You’ll find a variety of old-fashioned sodas and flavors you’ve never heard of!
Once they’re back up & running, go support them by grabbing a 3-month ($85) or 6-month ($170) subscription at ApothecarySoda.com
Summary of the Best Wine & Drink Boxes
My recommendation if you’re looking for affordable wine subscription, with a lot of variety, try Wine Insiders. It’s the best wine subscription club for your money. If you’re looking to try quality cocktails, go for Saloon Box. It’s a bit pricey, but it’s the best quality!
Do you have a different favorite wine or drink subscription? Let me know in the comments! I’m still waiting to find a soda syrup subscription box to try new flavors for my SodaStream too!
