GINTASTIC GIFT IDEAS
BLOOM Gin Gift Pack
BLOOM Gin is the epitome of style, sass and substance, with its beautiful, luxurious bottle and distinctively light and floral gin, which combines the natural botanicals of chamomile, honeysuckle and pomelo.

Available in all good supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, ASDA, Morrisons, Co-Op & Waitrose.
Thomas Dakin Gift pack
Thomas Dakin has officially been named the “World’s Best British Gin” making it the number one gift for the ultimate gin-connoisseur.
As a classic style London Dry Gin, Thomas Dakin is made in small batches in a copper pot still – a method inspired by Thomas Dakin, the forefather of quality English gin, who first began distilling gin in 1761. Containing eleven botanicals including juniper, orange peel, English coriander, angelica, grapefruit, cubebs, liquorice and a hint of red cole – otherwise known as horseradish – this is a savoury gin, that will keep even the most discerning drinkers happy.
Available in Tesco, Waitrose and Co-Op supermarkets.
GINS WITH A DIFFERENCE
Greenall’s Blueberry Gin and Greenall’s Wild Berry Pink Gin
Add some colour to Christmas with Greenall’s pink and blue gins. What sets Greenall’s Blueberry and Greenall’s Wild Berry apart is that unlike many other flavoured gins on the market, they contain zero-sugar; making these flavoured gins a sure-fired win with those who would rather save their sugar intake for the plethora of sweet treats on offer at Christmas.
RRP: Both £14.50
Greenall’s Wild Berry is available in Tesco, Sainsbury’s and ASDA. Greenall’s Blueberry is available exclusively in Tesco.
OPIHR Oriental Spiced Gin
Inspired by the adventurous spirit of the spice route explorers, OPIHR Oriental Spiced Gin is the perfect gift for budding travellers and foodies alike. It’s made using exotic handpicked botanicals from along the Ancient Spice Route, adding a subtly spicy twist to a G&T, which is bound to be a hit among those with a thirst for the unique.
IRISH WHISKEY WISHLIST
The Dubliner Irish Whiskey
Christmas is a great time for catching up with friends and family – it’s all about good times, just like The Dubliner Irish Whiskey. The perfect gift for the life and soul of the party. The Dubliner is matured in bourbon casks, giving it a smooth, rounded finish, with notes of honey and a touch of spice. Best of all, The Dubliner is a versatile number and can be enjoyed on the rocks, in an Irish coffee or with a good quality mixer.
RRP: On special offer from 20th November until 31st December at £20, usual price, £30.
