What is a good gin for a gift?
The main types of Gin are London Dry, Plymouth Gin and Old Tom and it is these styles which have been around since the start. London Dry is perhaps the mainstay of the Gin world and is produced by the leading players such as Tanqueray, Gordons, Bombay, Beefeater, Chase and Sipsmith. Sipsmith is a relatively newbie and was the first gin company to distil in a copper pot in London for almost 200 years.
What do you buy a gin lover?
Recently Gin is now produced in more and more flavours with companies experimenting with a much wider variety of botanicals – botanicals are the herbs, spices and fruits that are added to a base spirit which together with Juniper go to make Gin what it is.
Gin is now available as a liqueur (this is not a London Dry and has a much lower abv) which has led to the quick explosion of flavours such as Gingerbread, Unicorn Tears, Parma Violet, Liquorice and even Brussel Sprouts!
Can Gin be delivered?
We deliver a great variety of Gin gifts from most of the major players in the market and a few which are produced a stones through from us here at Sparkling Direct, such as the great tasting Scout & Sage Gin.
Our gifts are available as single bottles or together with delicious extras such as Chocolates, Pate and biscuits.
