We’ve already prepared a guide for some of Edinburgh’s best Christmas gifts, but what about some simple stocking fillers or secret Santa presents? Well, we’re hoping this boozy guide will provide a little ginsperation.
Dinky Daffy’s Gin
Gift the gift of a D&T this Christmas with Daffy’s miniatures.
Daffy’s is created from the finest French grain spirit, distilled on an ancient copper pot whisky still with Lebanese mint and the finest botanicals. Add a sprig of mint to your Daffy’s Gin and Tonic create a crisp and refreshing drink – the perfect way to start Christmas day.
Miniatures are available from Daffy’s website, priced at £4.95 each or a case of 12 (for the 12 days of Christmas perhaps?) for £59.
A Trio of Edinburgh Gin Miniatures
Edinburgh Gin was a turning point for us around five years ago, it was the first time we drank gin and actually enjoyed the flavour.
This gift pack costs £15 and features three of Edinburgh Gin’s signature range, including the original Edinburgh Gin, navy-strength Cannonball Gin and briny Seaside Gin.
MAKAR Christmas even more special with Gin!
MAKAR Gin has launched a festive trio, perfect for gin lovers this Christmas.
Each pack is beautifully presented in a festive foil wrap and contains one MAKAR Original Dry Gin, one MAKAR Old Tom Gin and one of either of the cask matured expressions; MAKAR Aged in Oak or MAKAR Aged in Mulberry.
The limited edition festive minis are available to purchase exclusively from the MAKAR chalets at the Christmas markets in Glasgow’s George Square and St. Enoch Square (or online at www.glasgowdistillery.com whilst stock last – only 2000 festive packs have been created in this limited-edition release)
Priced at £15, the artisan gift is perfect as a stocking filler, or as a treat for yourself to try three of Scotland’s most-awarded gins in 2017.
Pickerings a Perfect Gift this Christmas
It’s no secret how much we love Edinburgh’s Pickering’s Gin here at EdinBraw. No roundup of gin miniatures would be complete without their wonderful gin.
In this gift set, you’ll find Pickering’s Gin (the classic), Pickering’s Original 1947 Gin (from the original recipe and our personal favourite) and Pickering’s Naval Strength (bottled at 100 proof with ABV of 57.1%).
Little Leith Gins
Leith Gin is the new kid on the block and if you haven’t had the pleasure of trying it yet, a wee one may be the perfect place to start.
The cute gin miniatures can be found in Beets (in Leith) and retail at around £5. Perfect for secret Santa or a little boozy stocking filler.
Add a little ‘Joie de Leith’ to your Christmas celebrations!
