Port of Call & Dead Man's Cocktail Kit


This product is unavailable

Our November cocktail kit was inspired by the iconic flavors of Thanksgiving and our desire to feature an oft-overlooked cocktail ingredient: port (Portuguese Fortified Wine). The bold, fruit forward flavors of Fonseca Bin 27 Ruby Port play nicely with a variety of cold weather flavors and will add a unique twist to your classic cocktail staples.

We're featuring two modern port cocktails, both perfectly suited to the season. The Port of Call, created by Tom Macy for the Clover Club in NYC, pairs ruby port with gin, cranberry preserves, and cinnamon syrup. The Dead Man's Wallet, created by Darrin Ylisto for the Sylvain in New Orleans, offers a similar taste profile with ruby port and cinnamon but pairs it with a spicy rye whiskey.

We'll be sending the recipe cards for both the Port of Call and the Dead Man's Wallet, but you can select which second spirit you'd like to receive – either gin or rye whiskey (or both!).

    Our cocktail kits are sent in two separate packages. The recipient will receive the alcohol directly from one of our partner liquor stores and the rest of the non-alcoholic ingredients from us. Our cocktail kits are thoughtfully packed in decorative, branded materials and both packages contain information about which items are arriving separately. We work hard to time the delivery of both packages to arrive on the same day, or at least within 1-2 days of each other.


    IMPORTANT: An adult 21+ must be present to sign for the alcohol delivery. Due to alcohol shipping laws, the package cannot be left unattended. Generally, UPS/FedEx will only make three delivery attempts before returning the package to sender. We recommend shipping to a business address if possible, to guarantee an adult 21+ will be available to sign. If you can’t ship to a business address, please make sure the recipient is aware of the alcohol delivery. If the recipient is having trouble receiving the package, they can request the package is held for pickup at a local UPS/FedEX location through the tracking information we provide.


    SENDING A GIFT: To prevent alcohol from being returned to us, we strongly recommend that the recipient is made aware of the alcohol delivery. We're happy to send a gift delivery announcement directly if provided with the contact email. If not, we recommend that the you forward on the tracking information to the recipient.

    For any alcohol that is returned to us, we can make arrangements to reship the package. A redelivery fee will be assessed.
