8 gorgeous bottles of booze to give to a friend (if you can bear to)
Anyone else looking down the barrel of a diary full of dinner parties, house warmings and long-awaited get togethers? If you're looking for something a bit special to take along, try one of these stunning spirits bottles, including three quirky local options
Old Amersham Gin London Dry
Giving this bottle, from one of our fave local distillers, is like giving them a piece of art… that you can drink. That’s the kind of culture we like.
Cotswold Drinks Co Toffee & Vodka
If you’re buying them toffee vodka, they’re clearly a bit of a party animal, so why not go the whole hog and get them this limited edition version. The cheeky pop art graffiti is hidden behind a formal tweed suit, just waiting to let rip on your Saturday night.
Collagin Lavender & Elderflower
We can’t think of a better way to imbibe our weekly dose of wrinkle-busting collagen than in a botanical-inspired G&T from this Oxford-based gin company. Just genius. And pretty to boot – the perfect gift for your friend with the bulging toiletry bag.
Beluga Noble Night Light Vodka
It’s shiny and it’s booze… but wait, there’s more. Buy this for a friend and you’re also buying them a table light with two settings (flashing and continuous!) thanks to some fancy LED tech hidden in the bottle. Talk about mobile disco…
Nc’Nean Organic Single Malt Scotch Whisky
It’s organic so it’s got to be good for you right? And with a bottle this pretty, it’s going to look gorgeous in their booze cabinet.
Personalised Sapling Vodka
For the booze cabinet that has everything… surely they don’t have a personalised vodka bottle yet? And your recipient can keep it afterwards as a vase, candle holder, necklace stand?!
Chapel Down Chardonnay Vodka
This is your spirit bottle for the wine lover – and from an English vineyard too. Double brownie points. You’ll definitely be invited back if you bring this gift to the party.
Fallen Angel Spiced Rum
Rum is definitely having a moment in 2021 in cocktails or straight up over ice if it’s a smooth, spiced version like this Fallen Angel variety. For the naughty friend who has everything, surely this is just the ticket?
