The festive period is that time of year when everything becomes cosier and comfier.
We are always looking for that special space in the house to wrap up and keep warm. It is a fabulous time, and full of food and drinks we rarely touch throughout the rest of the year.
The most Christmassy drink you can find at that time of year is of course mulled wine, that beautiful cinnamon, red wine and clove masterpiece. It is enjoyed both warm and cold, and never fails to deliver that Christmas feeling whenever you have a sip.
The geniuses at the Isle of Skye Distillery have harnessed that popular mulled wine taste and infused their award winning Misty Isle gin to reinvent the traditional mulled wine drink.

This seasonal stunner brings together all the traditional festive flavours that you would associate with mulled wine and infuses everyone’s favorite gin delight to create something truly special.
The botanicals such as juniper, cassia bark, orange, lemon, star anise, tonia beans and a pinch of liquorice root are all soaked in the rich, Italian Amarone red wine prior to distilling.
The finished mulled gin delivers the same flavour profile as a delicious mulled wine combined with a generous juniper hit.
The distillers recommend settling down to enjoy this winter themed delight with tonic water, a slice of orange and a cinnamon stick.
Priced at £36 per 700ml with a 41.5 ABV, available for online purchase at the Isle of Skye Distillery
