Gifts sure to get you in the Christ­mas spirit

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - DRINK -

Ev­ery­body loves a fes­tive-themed nov­elty gift — and if you’re af­ter some­thing drink­able to help get you into the Yule­tide spirit, here are nine of the best boozy baubles, crack­ers and ad­vent cal­en­dars. An un­holy trio of gin, sin­gle malts, world whiskies or rums (the fastest trend­ing spirit), each glass bauble in this min­i­mal­ist pack is filled with just the right mea­sure of your favourite tip­ple, per­fectly pack­aged and ready to pour. Also avail­able as one in­di­vid­u­ally boxed bauble (£9.95) if you need a stock­ing-filler for a vodka lover. Putting the ‘cheers’ into Christ­mas dec­o­rat­ing, th­ese candy-coloured baubles will spruce up your fir tree a treat. Each one is filled with 50ml of Pick­er­ing’s Gin and, as the lads at the dis­tillery like to say: “Let the fes­tiv­i­ties be-gin!” Why not go for gold and crown the day with the best-loved bub­bles in the world? The Cham­pagne in the baby 20cl bot­tle is burst­ing with pris­tine fruit and cit­rusy aro­mas. sil­ver crack­ers cer­tainly look in good spir­its, so why not join the party? With an en­ter­tain­ing line-up of Hen­drick’s Gin, Sailor Jerry Rum, Glen­fid­dich 15-year-old and Mon­key Shoul­der among the head­lin­ers, they’re bound to please. The 24 wines in this grown-up ad­vent cal­en­dar might be un­der wraps (or be­hind win­dows, rather), but rest as­sured, the folks at Laith­waite’s will have made sure each minia­ture bot­tle of white or red is de­li­cious to the last drop.
