10 Best Gin Gifts Christmas 2020
2020 may well be a year many of us would like to forget but, before we close that door, it might be nice to celebrate with a socially distant gin or two.
As such, we thought we would draw together a list of our 10 best gins to gift to your nearest and dearest this Christmas. We have selected some of our favourites that are not the usual big high street brands. These are niche gins and in some cases a little unusual.
1. Best Gin Liqueur
Faith & Sons Chocolate & Orange Gin Liqueur - £19.99
The only gin liqueur to make this list, and for a very good reason. This is unlike any other gin liqueur we have ever tried. Thick, luscious, and luxurious, Faith & Sons Chocolate & Orange Gin Liqueur makes the perfect Christmas gift for the serious gin or chocolate lover!
2. Best Aromatic Gin
Huckleberry Gin - £28.49
This wonderfully soft and fragrant gin is made in Germany with aromatic Huckleberries. The blueberry flavour of this gin is simply delicious!
3. Best London Dry Gin
Slingsby London Dry Gin - £29.99 (was £32.99)
Rosemary, sage and lovage, and sweet cicely are distilled with Harrogate’s Tewit Well water for a refined celebration of citrus and juniper.
With a citrus scent with lots of juniper, we recommend a light tonic to best show off the natural elegance of this London dry gin.
4. Best Pink Gin
Tower Bridge Organic Wild Berry Gin - £19.99 (was £22.99)
Tower Bridge Organic Wild Berry Gin provides a dry fruity wild berry flavour combined with the traditional botanicals of a classic London dry.
With no artificial flavours or sweeteners, this pink gin has premium body, aroma, and taste at a great price.
5. Best Premium Gin
Monkey 47 Gin - £35.99
Given the name, it’s not surprising that there are 47 different botanicals that go into this rich complex Black Forest gin.
This premium gin has light citrus with stone fruit flavours and a warm lengthy finish with spice notes coming through.
6. Best Gin to Drink on the Rocks
Pigeon Fishers Naked London Dry Gin - £25.00 (was £35.00)
Pigeon Fishers is a small batch gin distilled in the glorious Derbyshire countryside. Botanicals include red clover and meadowsweet, providing a sipping quality gin for real craft gin lovers.
We particularly love the striking Pigeon Fishers bottle designs.
7. Best Citrus Gin
Grain Artisan Marmalade Gin - £25.00 (was £33.00)
The perfect gift for any gin lover, this a gin which is distilled and crafted with the love and passion Becky Morgan puts into every Grain Artisan bottle.

8. Best Gin Under £30
Faith & Sons Original Organic Gin - £25.99
