Christmas is a time of indulgence and alcoholic gifts are all the rage for people who appreciate a fine boozy beverage. When it comes to buying an alcoholic present, you don’t have to settle for a standard bottle. Instead, plenty of brands bring gift sets onto the market as we start approaching the festive season. This incorporates a bit of excitement into the giving and receiving of gifts, as this isn’t a standard object that can be obtained all year round. But what boozy gifts are on the market this time of year?
Red Chateauneuf-du-Pape in Presentation Case with Accessories
The red Chateauneuf-du-Pape has a lusciously ripe cherry flavor in a classic-looking black bottle. This wine oozes opulence and it’s the perfect gift for anyone with a refined enough palate to appreciate a glass of rouge. Not only is the wine sumptuously smooth but it’s encased in exquisite wine bottle packaging. The box is as classic as the bottle with elegant black leatherette detailing. In addition to the stylish box, the set includes a shiny corkscrew, drip guard, and wine pourer. This gift will keep on giving even after the wine has been consumed.
Grey Goose Martini Gift Set
Martinis and Grey Goose go hand in hand for being timeless classics and this gift seamlessly combines the two. Not only does it include a limited-edition bottle of one of the smoothest vodkas around, but it contains two engraved martini glasses, a handy cocktail recipe book, and two goose-themed cocktail picks. This entire ensemble is encased in an understated wooden box that’s engraved with the message “Let’s raise a toast to an unforgettable year.” Additionally, you can get this box personalized when you purchase from selected retailers. This gift not only promises a boozy night but a lovely keepsake.
Foxdenton Christmas Liqueur
Just the sight of this gin absolutely screams Christmas, from the intense shade of red to the mini-Santa hat on the logo. However, the festive spirit doesn’t stop there, with a potent redberry flavor and a hint of ginger. Whether you mix with tonic, lemonade, ginger beer, or simply sip neat from a glass, this will certainly be a warming drinking experience.
Sipsmith Mince Pie Gin Set
One of the most festive treats is a mince pie and Sipsmith has managed to incorporate this flavor into a Christmassy gin. The mince pie gin is distilled from fruity mincemeat and is contained with a cork that holds in the aromas of buttery figgy pudding, spiced cinnamon, Nordic log cabins, and coniferous spruce trees. In addition to this festive flavor, the box contains a bottle of Sipsmith’s London Dry Gin. Each of these smooth spirits is encased in a forest green box, true to Sipsmith’s brand, with a golden design on the front. Even once the gin is gone, you’ll be left with a pretty keepsake box.
Delirium Tremens Gift Pack
The packaging of this brand is decorated with pink elephants which is exactly what you’ll be seeing when you’ve finished the four bottles. The bottles are filled with Belgian beer that is flavored with banana, cloves, and citrus tastes. In the center of the four bottles sits a tulip glass that is embellished with the signature elephants. This gift set promises a fun evening.
