Does a Muddlebox contain fresh fruit?

Important COVID-19 Update: Ordinarily we would provide the fresh fruit required to make our cocktails however, following recent Government announcements we have decided to temporarily stop providing all fresh fruit in our one-off cocktail boxes. Therefore you will be required to source your own fruit or choose one of our many cocktail boxes that doesn’t require fresh fruit instead. Each product page will outline whether fruit is required to make the cocktail.

With regard to subscription customers, we will only send you a cocktail box containing fresh fruit if there is no alternative cocktail available to suit your preferences.

These measures will reduce the number of times our staff will have to make non-essential trips to our local suppliers to purchase the fruit. In addition, with many of our suppliers enforcing restrictions on the number of items that can be purchased, continuing to supply fruit in all our cocktail boxes is, quite simply, proving to be difficult. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times.

Yes. We firmly believe that freshly squeezed juice tastes better in a cocktail therefore some, but not all, of our cocktail boxes contain fresh fruit. 

Please note that all fruit is purchased on the day your cocktail box is shipped. The fruit is handpicked for freshness by our team so that you receive the fruit in the best possible condition.

We currently only provide lemons, limes and passion fruits for cocktails which require them. Unfortunately we do not provide fruit to garnish your cocktails as the suggested garnishes are only optional. Furthermore, some of the suggested garnishes are fruit which quite simply would not survive the journey to you.

With any of our subscription products it is very likely that you’ll receive a cocktail box which contains fruit at some point. However, if you’re purchasing a one-off cocktail box, each product page will indicate whether there’s fruit in the box.

Due to their perishable nature it’s important that you enjoy cocktails containing fruit as soon as possible. As a result, boxes containing fruit may not be suitable as gifts unless they are being gifted immediately after receipt. Please note that all our cocktail boxes are not sealed therefore you have the option to remove the fruit and replace it (if you wish), prior to gifting.

We can not be held responsible if the fruit in your cocktail has gone bad because you were not able to accept delivery at the first time of asking, you were not able to attend your local Royal Mail delivery office to collect your box in a timely manner or you quite simply did not gift or consume your cocktail before the fruit went bad. Therefore it is your responsibility to apply your own judgement and common sense as to whether our products will be suitable for you.
