It’s beginning to feel a little festive around here. To celebrate, we’ve decided to talk about our best-ever Christmas gins.
These are the gins that make us feel warm inside. The ones that are so full of wintry spice, we just can’t help but picture pouring a glass or two against an oh-so-Christmassy fireplace…
And then there’s turkey gin. A bit bonkers, but whatever makes you feel festive is alright by us.
12. Spiced Orange Gin
Nothing quite says Christmas like orange, cinnamon and winter spice. It’s a classic festive combination.
11. Rock Rose Winter Edition
10. Chocolate Orange Gin
We’re always delighted to find a chocolate orange in our stocking but we’d much prefer these beauties.
Chocolate Orange Gin, That Boutique-y Gin Company £33.95, The Whisky Exchange
Spiced Choc Orange, McQueen, £34.08, Amazon
9. Spiced Apple & Blackcurrant
If orange isn’t your thing, we know you’d love Copeland Gin’s Spiced Apple & Blackcurrant gin instead.
8. Cranberry Gin
Because you can’t have a good Christmas dinner without cranberry… gin.
Anno Cranberry & Gin, £39.99, Amazon
Tarquin’s Mulled Cranberry & Tangerine Dry Gin, £30.31, Amazon
7. Candy Cane Gin
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you ought to try Eden Mill’s Candy Cane Gin this Christmas.
6. Mince Pie Gin
Inspired by the mince pies of old, Sipsmith created a bit of a masterpiece with this one.
5. Christmas Pudding Gin
Fancy whole Christmas puddings distilled into a gin? Of course you do!
4. Frankincense and Myrrh Gin
We’re fairly sure the three wise men didn’t bring gin but, if they did, we’d hope it would be Batch.
3. Turkey Gin
It sounds like more of a festive nightmare but there really is a form of turkey gin. Portobello Road launched the world’s gin distilled with turkey breast back in October.
2. Edinburgh Christmas Gin
What can we say about Edinburgh Gin’s Christmas edition? It’s box is just so festive it could bring a smile to even the Grinch’s face.
1. Yuletide Gin
At number 1, it has to be Yuletide Gin. It essentially is Christmas in a bottle. Yes, really. Not only does it contain Frankincense and Myrrh but also gold and a whole gingerbread house as standard.
