People are craving connections and interactions more than ever, and Shots Box is helping alcohol enthusiasts network and mingle with one another through its virtual happy hours — a one-of-a-kind experience delivered complete with exclusive craft spirits to help elevate the event. The huge variety of craft spirits that Shots Box provides adds a layer of excitement and adventure for those looking for something different than the usual beer or typical local liquor store selection.

“With people spending more time at home, we’ve noticed that they’re dedicating that time to flexing their creative muscles, trying new things and producing these beautiful, intimate, at-home experiences,” says J.C. Stock, CEO and Founder of Shots Box. “Shots Box can help provide the high-quality, artisanal spirits that would be perfect for get-togethers like this, bringing the whole experience together into something truly special, all while socializing safely.”

Industry veterans are also partaking in the virtual tasting trend. Whiskey Journalist and Spirits Educator Tom Fischer, who is the founder of the Bourbon Blog, is hosting virtual whiskey tastings. These events will feature the Bourbon Blog Box, which contains mini bourbon bottles from Shots Box. Participants can sample the bourbon in the box alongside Fischer or during their own tastings. 

“We’re proud to have created a way for whiskey fans to come together to learn, engage, and toast from home in this whiskey series with ShotsBox. Whether you’re an experienced Bourbon connoisseur or a novice, this whiskey tasting will be a fun way for us all to explore together,” Fischer said, adding, “For the last 15 years, I’ve been following the rise of bourbon and whiskeys, chronicling it on I promise to bring the best stories and tips from my years of practice. Additionally, I will also be occasionally inviting some close friends who are distillers to personally join me on camera. So this will be an added bonus for attendees to meet them and chat with them virtually, as well!”

Whether they’re happening on FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or Google Hangouts, more and more virtual get-togethers are happening all over the world. Shots Box wants to help bring people together while staying safely apart through more of these virtual happy hours, complete with one-of-a-kind spirits from distilleries around the U.S.

To incorporate an interactive experience to virtual events, Shots Box has the perfect solution — its Crafty Cask Happy Hour Mezcal & Whiskey Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit. The cocktail kit to-go includes four curated minis, along with extracts, syrups and a measuring spoon, and if the drink calls for it, accompanying sugar cubes and garnishes. With the included recipe card, users can mix two traditional old fashioneds using craft whiskey, and two mezcal old fashioneds with a craft mezcal.
