As if the arrival of gin baubles wasn’t gincredible enough news for Christmas 2018, expert distillers Sipsmith have revealed that they are launching their very own gin stockings, with prices starting from just £27.
In a first for the company, who are known for their iconic London dry gin, as well as more creative flavoured gin offerings like lemon drizzle, shoppers will be able to pick and mix and personalise the goods inside each green velvet stocking for a truly unique gift.
Every order comes with one Sipsmith Christmas Stocking, one 20cl Sipsmith London Dry Gin, and Christmas Gift Wrap Set as standard, and then the fun really starts. You can choose to stuff your stocking with up to six additional gin-themed treats, with various priced options including:
- 20cl Mince Pie Gin – £15
- 20cl Chocolate Orange Gin – £15
- 20cl Gingerbread Gin – £15
- Sipsmith High Ball Glass – £5
- Sipsmith Enamel Mug – £5
- Sipsmith Swan Copper Drinks Stirrer – £6
- 6 x Sipsmith Swan Copper Drinks Stirrers – £30
- Sipsmith Copper Strainer – £10
- Sipsmith Swan Copper Barspoon – £10
- Copper Jigger – £10
The festive flavours in particular piqued our interest, with Sipsmith describing the mince pie gin as ‘a sweet spice mix comprised of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg’, and chocolate orange as reminiscent of the ‘British sweet treat in liquid form’. Gingerbread, meanwhile, has ‘toffee apple, cinnamon and hints of cookie dough on the nose’. No, you’re drooling.
We know more than a few gin fans who would be thrilled to find one of these hanging from the mantlepiece come December – and if you do too, now is the perfect time to head to the Sipsmith website to place a preorder.
Alternatively, if you want to take the guesswork out of the process, the brand have also created the ultimate prefilled £75 Gin Lover’s Stocking, which includes two bottles of gin, the same on-trend copper accessories and a high ball glass. Cheers, ginthusiasts!
