Here’s why: the Boutique-y calendar includes a diverse range of 24 of their own seriously cool and innovative gins offering a departure from the more standard gins we’ve seen being included in other calendars.
Each bottle is beautifully presented in a hand waxed seal and the packaging as a whole is pretty stunning.

When you want the most Christmassy Gin ever …
Edinburgh Gin Christmas Gin Trio Set
If Christmas gin is what you want, you’ll definitely be getting it in this fantastic Edinburgh Gin trio set!
Along with the delicious sounding Pomegranate & Rose Liqueur and the famous favourite Rhubarb & Ginger gin, you will also get their “Christmas Gin” which includes frankincense and myrrh as botanicals.
Can you get more Christmassy?!
Portobello Road Director’s Cut No:4 ‘A Parsnip In A Pear Tree’ Gin
We couldn’t possibly do this gin justice in our own explanation so here is Portobello Road’s intro to this awesome gift idea:
“This charming and uniquely festive gin takes inspiration from the traditional aromas and flavours of Christmas Day; combining the seasonal staple, honey roast parsnip,
with the Christmas tree like qualities of juniper and a generous selection of the traditional gin botanicals.
After the distillation is complete, spiced pear liqueur is added, resulting in a complex yet reassuring flavour profile.”
Basically … this gin would make the most amazing present this Christmas.
That Boutique-y Gin Company Yuletide Gin
We’ve been lucky enough to try some of That Boutique-Y Gin Company’s gins in the past and have fallen head over heels for them (sometimes literally!)
If you’re looking for a gin of quality with a pretty jazzy label to give this Christmastime, we’d definitely recommend this one!
Batch Signature Gin
Another gin using frankincense and myrrh, this gin is fantastic and incredibly versatile.
Your giftee could be enjoying this in a classic G&T, but they could also be having the time of their life sipping on a Batch Gin Hot Toddy roasting chestnuts on the open fire etc.
Trust us, this is a great winter tipple.
Sipsmith: Hot Gin & Tonic Set
Speaking of hot gins – this hot G&T set is such a cute gift to give this Christmas!
It’s not just giving gin it’s giving a whole wintery gin drinking experience. We can imagine this being a huge crowd pleaser.

When you want the most eye-catching/Instagrammable gift ever …
Silent Pool Christmas Crackers
Christmas gin crackers have been doing the rounds and then some on the Internet recently and we can see why. They’re awesome!
We think these Silent Pool Gin Christmas Crackers would make the ultimate gift for that festive hero who works tirelessly to bring us that all important Christmas feast.
Help set the table and surprise them with these beautiful crackers!
