These Christmas drinks are the perfect way to start the festive season; get in the Christmas spirit with our pick of seasonal tipples! If you’re looking for something to take the edge of all the hustle and bustle of Christmas or are simply picking the perfect boozy gift for someone else, you’ll find something here to tickle your (and their!) taste buds.
Here’s our top three;
- Darjeeling Infused Parlour Gin by Cartwright & Butler – £42.95
What our tester said: “This tastes as good as it looks and makes for the perfect gift for afternoon tea and gin lovers this Christmas.”
- Irish Cream Liqueur by Coole Swan – RRP £35 (Gift Set)
What our tester said: “Made with heart using all natural ingredients, every bottle contains a delicious combination of single malt Irish whiskey, white Belgian chocolate and its very own, fresh Irish dairy cream, delivering a brilliant white pour and a distinctively smooth, velvety and long-lasting taste experience. This is just delicious and I would definitely go out and buy this not just for myself, but as a gift as it has a real WOW factor.”
- Brockmans Premium Gin by Brockmans – £36
What our tester said: “Brockmans Gin is stylish; beautifully packaged in a black bottle; and most importantly, deliciously different. Brockmans Gin is a super-premium 40% ABV gin and stands out from the crowd because of its unique blend of botanicals which have been sourced from across the world. With its lovely flavour and presentation this is a gin like no other and makes for a perfect Christmas gift for gin lovers. You could also use it to make contemporary and festive cocktails for all parties you’ll be having this season!
From all the others we tasted Celtic Marches Jacob Marley’s Mulled Wine came out as highly recommended, as did Captain Morgan’s Gingerbread Spiced Rum.
