For the friend or family member who loves gin, but also loves gourmet snacks (the olive in a martini TOTALLY counts as a ‘snack’, right?) there is the BoroughBox Gin and Tonic subscription (£69.99 for three months). Not only will your beloved receive three deliveries (one per month) containing two craft gins (50ml) and two premium tonics, they will also get a surprise snack or condiment to compliment their G&Ts. And as this subscription is brought to you from the guys at London’s famed Borough market, you can guarantee superb snacks and gin.
Straight up Ginthusiasts will be dancing round the Christmas tree when they hear you’ve gifted them a Gin Tasting Experience subscription. For £79.00, we will send your recipient one box, per month, for three months, each one containing three completely different 50ml of gin – from the fruity and aromatic sloe variety, to the clean bouquet of dry, and even one masquerading as a liqueur which has been delicately laced with rhubarb - and one 200ml bottle of Fever Tree Tonic Water (possibly the best tonic water on the market).
Put down that gin scented candle, and instead gift a Club Connoisseur Gin Club subscription. Available as a one month (£19.95) or three month (£74.97) subscription, this is a great choice if you’ve only got a little to spend. Be warned though, you gift recipient’s gin expectations will be elevated after they experience the first-rate spirits in this box, as they receive three miniature stunning Gins from unique craft distilleries along with three premium tonics or mixers to compliment the gins, plus Brilliant botanicals from Botanicos to elevate your G&T game – hibiscus, cardamom, pink peppercorns etc. – PLUS tasting notes. Now that is an experience in a box!
