Great gift, great customer service
Bought this great gift for my boyfriends 40th birthday. He LOVED it. We followed the instructions to prepare the barrel, then added the whiskey and checked back a week later and saw it started leaking. I emailed customer service and within 10 mins got an email back telling me they will replace it. I was NOT expecting that at all. Now that is customer service and will insure I will be ordering from Man Crates again! Thank you Man Crates

Not a whisky making kit
Had received the whiskey making barrel and it is not a whiskey making barrel kit. It is a new whiskey and aging kit just so you know when people do buy it because when you buy whiskey, it already is aged, so why would you want to agent more just my thoughts.

Not a Making Kit
I, and my man, LOVE this product, but the title was a whiskey *making* kit, and it's a whiskey - AGING - kit...big difference when it comes to whiskey :/ but! we'll find a whiskey making kit and use the barrel (: Just wanted others to know what they're buying

I bought this Whiskey Barrel for my husband as a Christmas gift. We went through all the steps to cure the barrel. We thought it was good to go so we started making our first whiskey batch but started having leaks around the back of the barrel. The next day I messaged man crates about the problem. They got back to me within an hour of my message and said that they would send out a new one ASAP free of charge. This is the third thing I have ordered from man crates and I will definitely be ordering more in the future. Great customer service.

I ordered 2 man crates for my grown sons as a last minute Christmas idea/gift. They did not disappoint! It was the highlight of the night for them both. One son got a crate with jerky and enjoyed opening it with the crowbar. My other son got the personalized box to make his own hot sauces. They both went on and on about how they loved the gifts. The shipping was on time and I highly recommend these products!

Seems like most of the negative reviews come from people that can't read.
Bought this for my boyfriend, and he LOVED it.. And what's even crazier? I KNEW it didn't come in a crate because I bothered to READ the product description. Other than that, the product was exactly as advertised. So my recommendation? Buy this product, as it's pretty bada*s.. And ignore all the pissed off idiots who are only pissed off cause they lack reading comprehension skills. Thanks Mancrates, for once again knocking gift giving outta the park! You guys are awesome.

Started a Whole New Trend
I got this for my brother and had his childhood nickname placed on it with the flying pig (it was a perfect fit). He absolutely loved it and has it set up in his man cave. Now he is making all these crazy cocktails to decide what kind of whiskey he wants to make. And just wants to talk whiskey all the time.

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!
Man Crates Response: We are so sorry to hear you are disappointed that your order did not come in a crate. We do have a few items that we sell which do not come in crates. The crates are our the base of our brand and excellent gifts. However, we choose not to limit such glorious gift-giving to just wooden boxes. We offer other legendary gifts such as our: fresh-from-the-front-lines Ammo Cans, or our insanely-delicious JerkyGrams, and most recently our line of (If-You Want-Something-Done-Right-You-Have-To-) DIY project kits.
We do try our best to make it clear that certain items do not come in crates. Repeatedly on the site we make mention of this, specifically under the "add to cart" button we have written "This product ships in a box " as well as including a picture of how the item ships. In the product description we also have listed "Delivered: In an awesome cardboard box" shown on the page. On the cart page before you process your order we have also included this message and another picture of how the items ships as well. Sorry if you missed any or all of these signals, we've done our best to try and give you a heads up!
We’re sorry for any confusion resulting from the purchase that was thought to be coming in a crate. As always, we have a very generous return policy and if you wish you can return the item for a complete refund for any reason.
The bottom line is, we're not happy until you're happy, please let us know if there's anything I can do to turn this around!

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.

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

Top notch customer service
Responsive team, great customer service! I buy gifts from Mancrates for my husband at least twice a year. They take pride in their products.

Can you poor your already store made whiskey in here and or hour it going bad? Or just the stuff the barrel comes with?
Apr 15th 2020
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

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!!
