Gin is an all year-round favourite – but at Christmas it’s a time when bold and exciting new flavours hit the shelves embodying the festive season in their own unique way! In advance of The Gin To My Tonic Show returning to Liverpool in September 2019, here are five seasonal stand-out creations all fighting for a place on your Christmas drinks list.
1. Eden Mill – Candy Cane Gin 40% (£29.95)
Inspired by the seasonal sweet treat that it is named after. This is sweet on the palate with a subtle juniper undertone, leading to a warmer, rich and minty character with hints of light berry fruits. Garnish with a candy cane in order to create the perfect serve!
2. That Boutique-y Gin Company – Yuletide Gin 46% (£34.95)
Yuletide is everything you want in a Christmas gin, festival botanicals feature such as nutmeg, dates, clementine peel and Christmas tree needles. It doesn’t stop there, also added into the distillation is Christmas cake, chestnuts, chocolate truffles, mine pies and a whole ginger bread house, frankincense, myrrh and 24 karat gold flakes.
3. Anno – Cranberry & Gin 29% ABV (£32.00)
Bringing the sights, scents and celebrations of the festive Christmas season indoors is the limited edition Spiced Cranberry Gin. Seasonally spiced with sweet orange, cassia and cloves it truly is Christmas in a bottle. Make a festive fizz with your favourite Prosecco!
4. Copeland – Spiced Apple & Blackcurrant 37.8% ABV (£32.95)
A winter spiced warmer combining blackcurrants and spiced apples from the fields of hedgerows of County Down, Northern Ireland. The combination of fresh applies and blackcurrants results in a deep red tone that tastes as delicious as it looks. This one is best consumed as a hot toddy.
5. Four Pillars – Australian Christmas Gin 43.8% ABV (£50.95)
Christmas puddings are distilled alongside juniper, cinnamon, star anise, coriander and angelica, before being aged in a 125-year-old scotch whisky barrel. A touch of classic Muscat wine is added to the finish, resulting in a gin with real depth, richness and complexity.
