Christmas is coming around mighty speedily – but before you panic about what gifts to grab for your nearest and dearest, we’ve done the leg work for you.
It’s just not the party season without a delicious tipple or two – here are our top picks to make your loved one smile this Christmas.
12 Days of Christmas sets, from £44.95
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me… Continue the magic of Christmas with delicious drams, rather than a Partridge in a Pear Tree! Choose from rum, gin, Scotch whisky and more – each handsome box is filled with 12 different 30ml drams, so there’s a treat for every palate. “These boxes are ideal for spirits connoisseurs and newbies alike,” says Sherry. “They’re like an exploration in flavour, and will make that dull patch between Christmas and New Year thoroughly tasty.”
Mermaid Gin, £35.89
A real crowd-pleasing gin in a stunning bottle! This much-loved gin hails from the Isle of Wight distillery, and is guaranteed to delight the gin lover in your life. “There’s lots of talk about the gin boom beginning to slow, but we’re actually still seeing a lot of momentum behind products with a genuine point of difference, and this is one of them,” Sherry says. From the glistening bottle to the botanical recipe which includes the likes of wild samphire, Mermaid Gin is set to be a Christmas crowd-pleaser.
Roku Gin, £29.49
Another stunning gin expression now – the multifaceted bottle is embossed with the Japanese botanicals that go into this gorgeous gin! It’s a celebration of the seasons too, with different botanicals flowering at different times of the year. “Japanese spirits have a reputation for excellence, and this gin lives up to the hype,” Sherry comments. “It’s made by Suntory, which is a legend in Japanese whisky production. And the bottle is stunning, too!”
