Christmas gin gift set Looking for a craft gin gift set or present for your favourite gin-lover? A gin glass gift set, something pink or something different? Look no further. Read on to enjoy a smattering of gin history and a selection of beautiful gin gift ideas…

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed by now that in the past few years, gin has enjoyed a ‘ginaissance’. Across the globe, but above all in Britain, gin has dominated the market, bar shelves and cocktail culture alike. We drank 1.32 billion G&Ts in 2017, and what with the global pandemic, it’s no surprise that in 2020, gin has been filling online shopping baskets faster than any other spirit.

Although you might not be seeing as many ‘ginsters’ quaffing from berry-embellished gin glasses at trendy bars, you can be sure that they, along with everyone else, are still enjoying the most British of spirits from the comfort of their own homes. Gin gifts, therefore, are something you can safely bet on having a warm reception — so why not find something special to elevate the drinking habits of your gin-glugging loved ones?

 Virtual Gin Tasting – Miniature Gin Gift Set

First up is the ultimate Christmas gift most likely to impress any gin lover, from the most casual gin-lover to the most committed. This beautiful Copper In The Clouds miniature gin gift set is actually a virtual gin tasting, hosted by the distiller himself. You need only look at the artfully crafted labels on every wax-sealed, hand-finished bottle to see what makes this a present that goes above and beyond.

What’s more, this artisanal gin set is on sale as part of a gin tasting experience with In House Tasting: each tasting pack comes with a beautiful guide booklet and access to a 4k ultra-high-definition virtual tasting and cocktail tutorial, hosted by James Grant, Distiller and Founder of Copper in the Clouds.

If you’re looking for something extra special, you should take a look at the “Ultimate Christmas Gin Gift (that keeps on giving)” consisting of monthly craft gin tasting boxes delivered direct.

Pink Gin Gifts

Amongst the most sensational in recent developments has been pink gin, and many distillers have tried their hands at rose-tinted offerings, with results that are often just as dry as a bottle of Beefeater. Why not try Chase Pink Grapefruit & Pomelo — a citrus explosion — or Hedgerow Rhubarb & Raspberry, for a tangier treat?

History buffs, however, may prefer a more diligent definition of ‘pink gin’: a G&T with a rosy tint given by Angostura bitters. Fishers offer the perfect pink gin gift set for those who want to make a minerally moreish ‘Pink Fishers’ G&T.

 

And for those who want pretty-in-pink barware to go with their gin, why not lean into the wind? This rose gold Ginza collection of Japanese steel bar tools will give any drinks cabinet a ritzy, rosy look.

Gin Glass Gift Set

Glassware, too, can add sophistication to domestic drinking. A set of gin glasses, like these crystal balloon goblets from Urban Bar, will transport the drinker to the most exclusive gin bar on Portobello Road. 

 

And an elegant gin glass needs an elegant drink to fill it. Ideal gin presents include the fresh and fragrant Theodore Pictish Gin, or the florally refined Copper in the Clouds Flowerbomb: both come in packaging so pretty, they don’t even need wrapping. Even better, a Flowerbomb Gin hamper, complete with glass goblet and Fever Tree tonic, promises to be an extra-elegant gift for the most debonair of drinkers.

Christmas Gin

Finally, for a Christmas gin tipple, what could be more festive than sloe gin? Chase Oak Aged Sloe Gin, matured in Rhône Valley red wine casks, is rich, warming and beautifully balanced. 

Sloemotion Distillery, meanwhile, boasts a whole range of sloe spirits and liqueurs — we like their Hedgerow Sloe Gin with Winter Spices: a potent twist on the wintry classic.

Whether it be a gin gift set, virtual gin tasting or full bottle of the finest craft gin, whatever gin gift you choose, make it special. Enjoy
