The Best Christmas Gifts for a Gin Lover

The Best Christmas Gifts for a Gin Lover

December 02, 2019

We're mighty pleased that gin has found its way home and is now being distilled left, right and centre in London.

Given it's such a versatile spirit, there's really no reason why a gin-based tipple shouldn't ever be off the cards: whether this be dressed up as a Negroni or dressed down as a classic G&T.

We're sure the gin lover in your life feels the same, so with the help of The Conran Shop and Sipsmith, we've pulled together the perfect gin gift guide, hand picked just for them.

1. Gin Tasting Set

Drinks by the Dram have done it again, this time showcasing, in 30cl samples, some of the finest, and most unusual gins around. We're partial to a craft gin, so that one in particular is on our wish list this Christmas.

2. Fluted Highball

From a Tom Collins to a Garden Grove or a Bramble, this is the glass you'll need. Each glass is mouth-blown by our team of expert glassblowers in Slovenia, and then hand-cut to reveal the beautiful, elongated fluted pattern.

 3. Sipsmith Stirrer

Most gin cocktails will need a good old stir before serving, and we really like this one in particular.

 4. Glass Straw

Good riddance to plastic straws! We've got your replacement in the form of glass. We like this brand in particular as it comes with a very handy straw cleaner, too.

5. Jigger

When you're making your fancy gin cocktails, it's really important to get the ratios right to avoid disaster. We like to match our jigger to our stirrer so would recommend this one.

6. Fluted Coupe

Coupes aren't just for Christmas; they're not just for Champagne either. We wouldn't drink a Martini out of anything else.

7. Sip: 100 Gin Cocktails

Sipsmith have shown gin's true versatility by producing a book featuring 100 different cocktails which only require 3 ingredients.

8. Christmas Gin Ornament

You might need to open this one before Christmas so it can really get all the glory it deserves. The Conran Shop have the most exceptional display of Christmas decorations this year, ranging from a block of butter to sushi ornaments.

9. Diamond Mixing Glass

How do you make the perfect Martini? You absolutely need to have a mixing glass to hand; we're particularly keen on this one.
