    Nice but no crate :((

    We were so excited to get this gift for our dad but when it arrived we were upset to see that it didn’t actually come in a man rate that needed to be pried open :( half the reason we got it was for the crate but it was still a good gift nonetheless!

    Great customer service!

    I ordered this kit for my husband for Father’s Day and he was so excited when he got. Unfortunately, the barrel was leaking in multiple places even after the given time the barrel was supposed to swell. I sent an email explaining what was happening and Hailey was able to email me back the next day letting me know they were sending out a whole new kit and barrel! So happy with Man Crates and will continue ordering from them!

    Father's Day hit!

    My daughter suggested this kit as she is a past customer of Mancrates and boy was it a hit. My husband loves the show Moonshiners so this really worked for him. He is so excited to taste the first drink and to play with flavors. We also got him the Whiskey Infused nuts. They are excellent and the bottle is top-notch and will make a great bottle for him to put his whiskey in when it is finished. Such great products! You never disappoint!

    He loved it

    Bought this for my boyfriend for his birthday/valentines day/our anniversary (all on the same day lol) and he loved it! Easy instructions and comes with just about everything you need. Can’t wait to order him something for Christmas. Or just for fun!

    Love this kit!!!!!

    My wife got this for me for Christmas this year. Well I am 8 weeks in to making my whiskey and I hate it! Lol, the tasting are driving me nuts. All the different flavors coming through, I can’t wait to have a glass. Around week 6 I added some vanilla flavored stevia drops. Can I say WOW!! I was going to wait until the second batch to start playing with flavors but I’m so happy I did already. Only a couple more weeks until I bottle it. That’s if it makes it to the bottle. Lol

    Amazing Customer Service!

    I bought this for my husband for Christmas, the barrel was beautiful and very well done. However we had an issue with the spigot. They responded to my email very quickly and made it right. Great product, even better customer service; I recommend both the barrel and the company!

    Made it right

    I ordered this and wasn’t pleased with the print, you could barely read the inscription. I contacted Man Crates and they immediately sent out a replacement. Excellent customer service. I just started ordering with Man Crates, and it won’t be the last time.

    Perfect gift

    I bought this for my brother in law for his 50th birthday. He was excited to start it once he opened it, and now only two weeks later, he shared a small tasting with us and we all couldn’t be mire impressed. The smoked woody flavor adds depth to this hooch. It’s fantastic , smooth, flavorful already, can’t imagine how good it will be in a couple more weeks. I’m planning on ordering one for my husband and one for my son. The personalization was perfect. Everything arrived in great shape. Thank you.

    Smoothest whiskey he’s ever had

    Bought the barrel for my boyfriend because I knew it would look cool on his bar and be fun to make his favorite alcohol. It turned out so smooth he loved it! I only hope I can buy the refills for it so he can keep making more

    Question

    We don’t like bourbon but was really smooth we let it age for 8 weeks and was very mild

    Great product I thought I came with a crate and pry bar but just in a box very good quality

    Amazing surprise

    I just received this as a Valentine's Day gift from fiancee. I love it. The idea of making my own whiskey has my mind blown.

    Boyfriend LOVED it!

    I have bought several of these crates for my boyfriend, but this one by far was his favorite. He is a whiskey drinker and thought the personalized barrel was really cool! He immediately put it on our bar at home and he can't wait to make his first batch! Thank you ManCrates!!! I can always count on your products to put a huge smile on his face!!

    No Crate

    The jury is still out on the whiskey, but I'm disappointed I don't get to present this gift to my husband in a crate. That is what initially attracted me to this company. It just arrived in a cardboard box. Sad

    Should have read the details more carefully

    The "crate" (which is just a cardboard box) arrived today. This was an anniversary gift for my husband. I didn't read the shipping/packaging info correctly and it doesn't actually come in a crate. So needless to say, I was very disappointed in the packaging. However the kit does seem nice. So just to warn people, if you think this is actually coming in a wooden crate that needs to be opened with the little crowbar, it doesn't.

    Not in a crate

    I thought this cam in a crate, maybe my own misunderstanding. Either way I’m a bit disappointed. To top off my disappointment the box it shipped in says man crate all over it instead of being discrete. However, I’m hopeful for the actual product cause it has so many good reviews.

    Didn't come in the crate

    I was very exited to watch my father in law struggle to open this gift but it didn't come In the wood crate. I thought the whole point of these was to be hard to open. That was going to be half the fun! I'm actually really disappointed and I'm looking into buying just the crate so I can still watch him open it.
    Otherwise this gift was beautiful. From what I've seen so far. He hasn't received it yet.

    Think twice

    I ordered this for my husband as an anniversary gift. I knew it wouldn’t come in the crate, but he was disappointed nonetheless. Then he opened it, and it was just an unfinished wood barrel, but he was so excited to use it. The laser engraving was really nicely done. BUT the first time he tried to put the spigot in, the face of the barrel cracked the whole way across & the metal rings holding it together came unfastened.
    Customer service was amazing, and wasted no time sending out a new one. This barrel was nicely finished and stained wood, much better quality, and came together with no issues. Except this time, the engraving was so poorly done, it was difficult to read.
    For the cost of this product, we were very disappointed. Customer service offered to send us a 3rd barrel or replace with a similarly priced item, but I opted for the refund instead. I wish I could share pictures so you could see the inconsistency with the quality.

    It's more of a whiskey AGING than a whiskey making kit

    Not super happy with my purchase, first, it's a whiskey aging kit not a whiskey making kit unless you considering adding essence to vodka "making" whiskey, the barrel is cool and the etching but if i could go back in time i would just buy an actual still on amazon for slightly more money. This is definitely not worth 100 bucks for a mini barrel.

    Know before you buy

    I bought this for my son in law for Christmas. The actual item is as described however I knew it didn’t come in a crate but I didn’t know that the box that they pack it in for gifting is the same box that they ship it in. For $100 I just expected a little more. I am still excited to give this as a gift but I now have to repackage it so that it actually feels presentable for the amount of money it cost. Just a heads up for all looking to gift this to someone.

    Really disappointed

    First of all, I didn’t realize this didn’t come in the “crate” packaging. Probably was a blessing in disguise because I opened it and what a disappointment. Very small barrel, and you can barely read the words printed on the barrel. I’m not even sure I’m going to give this to the recipient. For $100, I guess I expected more
    The other gift I ordered here, is in the crate, so I’m praying when it’s opened it’ll be nice.

    Terrible engraving

    The Personalization is so light you cannot see it real well. The drill hole in the front was sloppy and not cleaned out - I'm embarrassed to even give this as the gift it was intended to be.
