In 1797, George Washington, the Michael Jordan of being American, declined the free world’s greatest honor, the Presidential Three-peat, in order to build a whiskey distillery in his basement. The Revolutionary War MVP and celebrity endorser of the one dollar bill knew that no amount of prestige or accomplishments could rival the warm satisfaction of a good glass of whiskey.
In days past, a man’s fondness for whiskey was admirably brandished in full home bars, but in modern times, whiskey is hidden out of sight in cabinets and desk drawers like shameful secrets. The Whiskey Appreciation Crate is here to restore honor to the once great bond between a man and his drink.
Etching your initials into a glass decanter is a public declaration of your intense whiskey affections. It’s like donning a trenchcoat and holding a boombox overhead blasting Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” outside of whiskey’s house or barging past security and frantically sprinting through an airport to desperately appeal at the last second for whiskey to not get on that plane.
And while the monogrammed decanter looks super slick when flanked by the matching pair of personalized rocks tumblers, whiskey should be primarily valued for taste, not just presentation. The decanter properly aerates and settles your whiskey so you can settle down with a glass of good company anytime.
Rounding out the Whiskey Appreciation Crate is the ultimate whiskey connoisseur collection: A pair of Tevolo Ice Molds and slate coasters, a portable whiskey tasting journal, and the most important whiskey accessory, premium snacks.
Box up your past-prime sports trophies and find a stud to hang your awkward family portraits, because the Personalized Whiskey Decanter is reclaiming whiskey’s proper place atop your mantel.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

I got this for my son for Christmas. He absolutely loves it. He had whiskey rocks. But this comes with some things that make large ice cubes. He claims they are better than the whiskey rocks.

Received this as a gift from my brother. Quality of the glassware is superb, and adds to your drinking experience - be civilized!. Fill it with a nice bottle of Kentucky Bourbon, an aged Scotch, a drop of the Irish. If you haven't used ice spheres before, you really need to get on board with these as well. Fantastic gift to any real whiskey lover or a wonderful thing to do for yourself. Go on; you deserve it.

I received this Whiskey Appreciation Crate as an anniversary present yesterday. I am still in awe of the personally engraved glasses and decanter today. The glassware is heavy and the etching is perfect. I can't wait until I can offer a glass of premium whisky to my next guest to show them off.
The crate was a b____ to open, but the reward inside was so worth the frustration!
I will be ordering this and other crates in the future as gifts for others.

I bought this a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. I wanted to get him something that he could use, but was still different than a standard gift. He LOVED it! His best friend witnessed him open the present and was quite jealous. I purchased a really nice bottle of whiskey to go along with the crate and he said it was the best gift he has ever gotten.

The actual product is amazing. It looks fantastic, and the glass is etched, not painted. My husband absolutely loved it. Very disappointed in the packaging, though, since I paid extra for duct tape that wasn't there, and then it turns out it didn't even have the crowbar it's supposed to come with. Overall, I recommend the product, but I really wish the package was complete (especially the extra paid part). You can find personalized gifts elsewhere, so it was the unique packaging that was a selling point for me and it turned into a complete flop in that regard.

Thank you! I ordered this Whiskey Lovers Crate for my Dad for Christmas this year. He is 81 and I was fed up with getting him the usual "stuff" and wanted to get him something fun and special. This was perfect and a class act! The entire family got involved in getting this crate open to see what it held. Once the challenge was accomplished, we all gasped at how impressive this set truly is. I recorded most of this fun gift opening event with all the family on Christmas Eve. Not only does he love this gift, the entire family had a blast and this memory will last for generations. Again, thank so much!!

Got this for my hard-to-buy-for hubby for Christmas this year! He absolutely loved it! He has always wanted a decanter and loved that it was personalized. Everything was intact, nothing broken and it's beautiful! Took him awhile to get the crate open and I was scared to death that he would break it. I finally got something for him that was unexpected and a hit with him! Thank you!!

I got this crate my now husband, then fiance', last Christmas. He absolutely love it! So much that I will be getting another crate this year. The shipping was fast and I was able to intercept it so he didn't get a peek. I also opted for the duct tape (so worth it)! He was literally laughing the entire time he was opening it, which was the highlight of my day :D Thank you guys for putting together such great quality gift!

So, I know I'm not the normal customer base for ManCrates, but I sent the Customized Barware one to my boyfriend for his birthday, and he loved it so much that he wanted to give one back to me for Christmas. I'm a whiskey girl at heart, and he knew this, so he got this crate for me. I opened it and I was so excited, and then we noticed that once of the customized glasses were broken. He contacted customer service to have a new glass sent out, and you guys sent an entirely new and whole crate. Can't tell you how excited we were to get that. I have both of the decanters and the 3 glasses that I have proudly sitting on my bar right now. You guys are the best and I tell everyone I know about you if they're having problems figuring out a gift for the man in their life.

I originally ordered 10 crates (7 being this whiskey appreciation crate) for my wedding party gifts that we'd give them at the rehearsal dinner (ordered them a couple weeks out). We then decided to order one for the bride's father to open immediately and his decanter was completely shattered to an unrecognizable state and the glasses were slightly chipped. Imagine my concern still having 10 more crates that would not be opened for a couple weeks knowing we're 0 for 1. I contacted customer service and they were fantastic and immediately sent out another crate for the father (which made it in whole this time) and assured me the same for any issues I may have with the other unopened crates. There were also some issues with the site in ordering that many crates at once and they were right there to help quickly and offered a coupon for ordering so many of them. Long story short, all of these groomsman crates were fine with nothing broken (they did seem to be packaged better than the other one for some reason). They all loved them and I'd definitely order from man crates again.
