To help you make an informed choice, we’ve handpicked 5 delicious festive gins that every parent deserves.
M&S Snow Globe Gin
Let’s face it, Marks and Spencer struggle to put a foot wrong when it comes to food and drink, and their new snow globe gin is no exception. They have improved their extra special sparkly gin this year, as it features edible gold leaf and a light-up bottle.
You can pick up a bottle of clementine or you can treat yourself to its new flavour rhubarb. It’s best served on the rocks with either tonic or prosecco.
Eden Mill Peppermint Gin
If you love munching on a candy cane at Christmas, grab a bottle of Eden Mill peppermint gin, which is easily one of the best festive gins on the market. The refreshing drink offers a synonymous festive red colour (made from hibiscus and bilberry) and delicious berry notes, which will make you feel as if the festive season has officially arrived. Serve it with ice, tonic and a blackberry garnish. You won’t regret it.
Edinburgh Gin Christmas Gin
Edinburgh Gin never fails to disappoint, which is why you should order a bottle of their Christmas Gin. It offers a mix of festive flavours of orange, nutmeg, clove and piney juniper, which offer an aromatic scent of frankincense, a burst of myrrh on your palate, and a wonderful cinnamon finish. It is Christmas in a bottle.
Misty Isle Mulled Christmas Gin
Are you partial to a glass of mulled wine over Christmas? Enjoy it in a different form this year with Misty Isle Mulled Christmas Gin. The Isle of Skye distillery soaks their botanicals, such as orange, liquorice, juniper and star anise, in a beautiful Italian Amarone wine before the distillation process. The result is a festive mulled flavour of cinnamon, orange, raspberry, dark chocolate, and juniper. It’s best served over ice with your favourite tonic.
Whitley Neill Blood Orange Gin
Despite being able to buy Whitley Neill Blood Orange Gin all year long, it’s an ideal choice when considering festive gins. It offers a beautiful citrus burst that offers subtle notes of both orange peel and pepper.
It is created from Sicilian blood oranges and features fragrant botanicals, such as lemon, juniper, lemon, coriander seed, angelica root, and orris bark. It’s best served on the rocks with tonic or grapefruit juice and line. Don’t forget to add a fresh slice of orange, too!
