If a bar cart takes pride of place on your Christmas list this season, we may have just found a worthy addition to add to that stocking. Freshen up that drinks trolley and those taste buds with Candy Cane Christmas Gin (£32.50). One sip will fill you with nostalgia, ushering away its number one competitor, the humble mulled wine. And while mulled and mince may rule the festive flavours as you sit down in front of the fire, you’ll certainly want to sample candied gin over ice as a new Christmas tradition.
While this isn’t our first foray into alternative gins, it’s soon to be a festive favourite alongside “Not Terry’s” chocolate orange gin liqueur, cherry bakewell gin, and, for the freezer, frozen gin and tonic sorbet. They’ll have you sippin’ pretty until Christmas hits.
