You can now buy gin and tonic Christmas crackers for under £30

Christmas time just isn’t the same without advent calendars, baubles, and of course, a lovely set of crackers for your dining table come the big day. And these days, your options are no longer limited to crackers containing just a silly joke and a mini pencil sharpener — and we’re not just talking about beauty crackers.

This year, Double Dutch is selling perhaps the most luxurious Christmas crackers we’ve laid our eyes on — and they’re perfect for gin lovers. The company is selling packs of six gin and tonic Christmas crackers, each of which contain a festive tipple for you to enjoy come December 25th.

Each cracker contains a 150ml can of Double Dutch tonic water, each in a variety of flavours, as well as a 50ml double shot of gin. The gin’s have been sourced from six popular distilleries, and there’s plenty of variety so each G&T will be different. 

Here’s exactly what you can expect from the set:

  • Whitley Neill Parma Violet Gin and Double Dutch Indian Tonic Water
  • The Lakes Elderflower Gin Liqueur and Double Dutch Cucumber & Watermelon Tonic Water
  • Edinburgh Gin Raspberry Gin Liqueur and Double Dutch Cranberry & Ginger Tonic Water
  • Warner’s Rhubarb Gin and Double Dutch Pomegranate & Basil Tonic Water
  • Sipsmith London Dry Gin and Double Dutch Indian Tonic Water
  • Amber Falls Orange Marmalade Gin and Double Cranberry & Ginger Tonic Water

Surprisingly, the crackers actually aren’t too expensive either; at £27.65 for six, you can score a gin and tonic for everyone around the table (given the current rule of six) for less than £30. Pretty impressive, if you ask us.

If the gin and tonic Christmas crackers sound right up your street, mark your calendars for October 25th, when they will be available to buy from Double Dutch’s website. We’re guessing they may sell out rather quickly though, so make sure you’re at the front of the queue on the day they launch.
