WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 29: Cocktails crafted by David Strauss as Eric Podwall Hosts An Exclusive Cocktail Experience The Evening Before White House Correspondents' Dinner at Sheppard on April 29, 2016 in Washington, DC.

Buying gifts can be difficult sometimes, and some people are pickier than others.  Enter your good friend:  Alcohol.

There are few moments when the gift of alcohol isn’t welcome, but instead of just getting a random bottle of wine or top shelf spirit this holiday season, you might want to check out all of the new alcohol subscription services available.  There are so many subscriptions that narrowing our list down to seven was rather difficult, but our diverse list below has something for everyone, from craft beer lovers to gin enthusiasts and everywhere in between.

 

Bitters + Bottles ($89/month)

Bitters + Bottles is equal parts cocktail discovery and education.  The subscription acts as a 12-month program that can be paused at any time, because sometimes life happens, and you can’t always shell out $89 a month.  Each box you receive will contain 4-6 full size ingredients (enough for 20 cocktails), five “classic cocktail formulas” and ten recipe cards.  With every box, you’ll learn why certain ingredients go together, and as you move further along in your subscription/education, the spirits become more exotic.
