Looking for gin? There’s now so much it’s got it’s own separate guide – take a look at our round-up of the best gin gifts to buy this Christmas.
Why pour your Martini from a cocktail shaker when you can instead dispense it from the mouth of a plastic bull? The bulls are apparently modelled on those found at the fountains of Turin, where Martini is made. It’s available in-store only at Selfridges.
Magnums? Pah. Jeroboams? Don’t make me laugh. What we want is a methuselah of prosecco, and finally someone (Aldi, specifically) has seen fit to do the honours. This colossal bottle – which holds the same as eight regular bottles – is home delivery only. Probably because of the danger of customers ending up with hernias while hoisting it into the back of the Range Rover.
Coming in a nautical-themed bottle that’s one of the prettiest we’ve seen all year, Spytail is a French rum with a touch of ginger and caramel – ideal for Christmas or New Year cocktail making.
Royal Salute’s 21-year-old whisky – arguably the best blended Scotch you can get – is being sold at Selfridges in a ‘Masquerade Ball Festive Gift Pack’, apparently inspired by the Royal Masquerade Balls once held at the Ranelagh Pleasure Gardens in London. It’s very fine-looking, but we preferred this ‘ruby flagon’ version, which comes in its own velvet drawstring bag.
Perfect for serving red and white wines, Selective Sulphite Capture purification creates a unique pure wine experience, perfect to share with friends.
Produced from the highest-quality Weber blue agave plants, this elegantly presented tequila is tripled distilled, extraordinarily smooth and full bodied. The bottle can be engraved, so personalise it with a message to the tequila drinker in your life.

Gusbourne’s flagship wine is aged for a minimum of 39 months before deemed ready for release.
This cracking single malt is a bit of a rarity: a Lowland whisky that’s been quite heavily peated. Full of smoke and sweet flavours, and – we can’t deny this helps – it comes in a beautiful and truly unusual bottle. This is the first bottling from a hi-tech new distillery, and very promising it is too.
A delicious coffee liqueur (particularly good mixed with milk!) plus it’ll be one of the most beautiful bottles in the cabinet.
Scottish rum? Absolutely, and this drink takes its name from a Glaswegian sugar house and distillery established in the 17th century. Distilled in Scotland using copper pot stills and infused with spices, citrus and vanilla.
Beerhawk’s selection includes 15 bottles from across the nation.
