NICE TO MEET YOU

We can’t wait to share the products that have helped us to build out our alcohol-free home bar cart with you., bringing you celebratory and innovative alternatives to alcoholic beverages.

frequently asked questions
WHAT IS RAISING THE BAR?
Raising the Bar is a monthly subscription box for *anyone* who is interested in alcohol-free beverages, for whatever reason. Newly sober? Cutting back on pandemic vices? Pregnant? Taking a break? Whatever your reason for wanting to explore zero-proof cocktails, we are here to help you discover delicious and innovative alcohol-free options.
WHY WAS RAISING THE BAR CREATED?
Raising the Bar was founded after the founder and CEO quit drinking alcohol and was frustrated with the lack of mocktail options beyond soda and lime. Inspired by a rise in new alcohol-free brands and the #sobercurious movement, the idea for Raising the Bar was born. We can’t wait to share the products that have helped us to build out our alcohol-free home bar cart with you!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each month we send you a box curated with all the ingredients you need to make a seasonal, delicious alcohol-free cocktail right at home. We share the recipe with you and will also provide ideas on how to use components of the box for other beverage options beyond the mocktail of the month. Order by the 25th of the month to get this month's box. Boxes ship out on or around the 15th of the month. So for instance, if you order on the 28th of the month, you will get your first box the middle of the next month!
ARE ALL THE INGREDIENTS COMPLETELY ALCOHOL-FREE?
Great question. Most ingredients are 100% alcohol free. However, some items like bitters or kombucha, for example, may have trace amounts of alcohol in them. Some people who completely abstain from alcohol are comfortable with these types of products; for others they can be triggering and should be avoided completely. If you are in recovery, this is an incredibly personal choice that only you can make with the input of a doctor and/or sponsor.
DO I HAVE TO COMMIT TO A MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION?
Subscriptions auto-renew according to your plan at the end of the subscription cycle. You can cancel anytime before your renewal date. For multiple month subscriptions, you can cancel anytime, however you will still receive the remaining boxes from your prepaid multiple month subscription and then your subscription will end. For example, if you choose a 3 month subscription at checkout and want to cancel after the 2nd month- you will still receive your 3rd prepaid box. After your 3rd final box, you will not be rebilled and your subscription will end. You can also purchase one-time gift subscriptions that do not auto-renew! Simply choose "this is a gift" option at checkout and your gift will automatically expire at the end of the prepaid period if you do not select the auto-renew option.
DO YOU SEND GIFT NOTES?
We are no longer able to offer hand-written gift notes. However, we have created a Canva template that you can use to create a digital (or printed!) gift note to share with your recipient. Click here to access the template on Canva (accessible with a free account!)
