We agree, it’s a touch early to be mentioning the C-word, but if you’ve got a gin lover in your life, you’ll want to bookmark this as their Christmas gift. As always, the festive season brings lots of exciting new special edition stock to the aisles of high street favourite Marks & Spencer, including the return of the incredibly popular and bestselling gin snow globe – with more bells and whistles than ever.
The sparkly tipple was a huge hit when it first launched in September last year, with shoppers going crazy for the festive gin bottle and clearing stores of all of their stock. After the retailer brought it back earlier this year in the form of a summery elderflower glittery gin liqueur, M&S has made the very wise decision to bring it back once again for the second festive period in a row.
And this time round, there are two flavours to choose from. Last year’s extremely popular clementine flavour, which was described as ‘the gift of the season’, has returned alongside the ‘just-landed’ rhubarb flavour. Both come in the iconic globe style bottles with cork stoppers and are decorated with a Christmassy frosted glass design.
So far so good, except there’s more. Alongside being filled with edible 23 carat gold leaf flakes that float around when the bottle is turned upside down to create the snow globe effect, for 2020, M&S have pulled out all the stops and made the globe bottle actually light up. For starters, anything involving gin is always an instant win, so when you add a healthy dose of Christmas sparkle in the way of glittering gold flakes and lights, there’s no doubt it’ll be a show-stopping crowd-pleaser.
The retailer announced the news of the restock with a post on their Instagram page, much to the delight of their followers.
