Gin-filled Christmas cards are now a reality

Christmas cards are always nice to receive, but we don’t think many people would argue with the statement that receiving a Christmas card with a bottle of your favourite tipple tucked inside would be even nicer.

Well, that dream has become an actual reality, thanks to the geniuses at Daffy’s Gin, who have created gin-filled Christmas cards that can be posted across the country. Consider our bells well and truly gin-gled.

Daffy’s Gin

If you’re not familiar with the Daffy’s brand, let us introduce you – named after the ‘goddess of gin’, the distillery offers a gin like no other, created from the finest French grain and infused with Lebanese mint and botanicals, for a flavour that’s both classic and complex.

The (surprisingly stylish, by the way) cards fit through an average-sized letterbox, and each one comes with a 5cl miniature bottle of gin nestled inside. You can choose for your card to be posted directly, or sent to you first so you can add your now personalised message.

One card will set you back just £7.49, or you can order a set of 6 for £44.94 – well, we definitely know more than one person who would love to receive one of these when December rolls around…

The response to the cards online has already been incredibly enthusiastic, with plenty of Instagram commenters planning their festive sends. ‘Oh my days I hope all my friends see this! ?’ one excited commenter wrote, while a second posted: ‘Oh. My. Days. This is incredible!!!!!! ?’

‘Love this idea, just want it popping through my letter box,’ a third agreed.
