7 of the best Christmas gin gift sets to check out this winter
The holidays seem to have snuck up quicker than ever before this year.
If you’ve got a gin lover in your life that you want to surprise this winter, we’ve picked out 7 of the perfect Christmas gin gifts to take a look at during your next online shopping spree. These are all Doghouse originals, featuring our unique gin blends in a number of different ways.
Cute and functional, £13.95
To start off with, our Christmas gin gift baubles are sure to go down a treat. These adorable baubles come with a 50cl bottle of our classic Renegade gin, and a tie on the top so that it can be hung directly on the tree. The baubles look fantastic, and they’re a great way to cut down on the time you spend wrapping up gifts this year, too.
We’d recommend serving Renegade gin with a sprig of rosemary and an ice-cold tonic, in a balloon or highball glass. If you’re looking for some cocktail inspiration this winter, why not check out our cocktail recipe page? It’s packed full of unique ideas to help spark your creativity when mixing on your home bar.
From the Doghouse, £14.95
This miniature Christmas gin hamper comes directly from us, and you can pack it with any combination of your favourite Doghouse Distillery spirits. You could combine the Sidewayz sloe gin with the Sidewayz damson gin for a fruity blend, or stick to the classics and choose Renegade gin with a side of Baller vodka. The world is your juniper-flavoured oyster.
On top of this, the gift set comes beautifully packaged in a Doghouse gift box and with one of our themed bottle openers. It’s the ideal Christmas gin gift pick for a brilliant stocking stuffer, or for a thoughtful Secret Santa gift for a work colleague. Why not buy a few craft tonics to go alongside it for the ultimate gift idea?
Tasty and festive, £12.95
Flavoured gins are always a hit for Christmas drinks, and this Christmas gin set offers up one of our personal favourites. This sloe gin bauble comes in a neat, Doghouse-themed gift box, so gift wrapping will be a breeze.
We’d suggest pairing our sloe gin with a fresh lemon tonic or even a lemonade, as citrus works wonderfully with sloe. It’s also ideal for drinking neat over ice, preferably in a chilled rocks or old fashioned glass.
Season original, £34.95
Out of all the Christmas gin hampers on our store, this has to be the most festively fitting. This box of goodies comes with a decadent 70cl bottle of damson gin, aromatic mulling spices, a sprinkling of appropriate garnishes and a copy of our top secret mulled wine recipe.
Guard this mulled wine recipe with your life- it’s a real treat.
If you’re looking for things to add to your mulled wine this year, we’d recommend experimenting with different kinds of fruits and spices. There are plenty of things that you can add to mulled wine, including;
- Star anise
- Whole cloves
- Cinnamon sticks
- Orange rounds
- Pear slices
- Pomegranate seeds
- Maple syrup
Of course, this gin Christmas gift is already stocked with a tasty mulled spice set, but if you’re looking to make your own variants on our house recipe, these ingredients are a great place to start. Throw in a few different combinations, and see what you prefer.
Deliciously festive, £12.95
Enjoying an aperitivo before a meal is a great way to make sure that everyone’s hungry and in good spirits this Christmas, and our Doppelganger aperitivo mini spritz kit is just the ticket. If a Christmas gin hamper isn’t the right vibe for your friends or family, this genius kit could make the perfect stocking stuffer or secret santa present.
It comes with a miniature bottle of elderflower cordial, a bottle of tasty prosecco and a bottle of our craft Doppelganger aperitivo bitter. We’d recommend serving it with plenty of ice, fresh strawberries and a slice of orange for a warm, fruity treat this winter. Top it off with soda for extra bubbles and to enhance the overall flavour.
If you’re looking to pair this with our Renegade gin, why not try making a Negroni? Negronis are typically equal parts of campari, sweet vermouth and gin, usually coming in at 20ml or 25ml depending on the bar. Simply substitute the campari for our Doppelganger aperitivo bitter, and add the Renegade gin to the mix with your favourite vermouth.
Nifty gift, £12.95
It’s not just our classic Renegade gin and sloe gin that we offer in our gin Christmas gift baubles, either. This bauble gift set comes with a 50cl bottle of our delectable damson gin, neatly packaged in a gift box for easy wrapping.
We’d recommend drinking our damson gin neat, over ice in a rocks glass. If you want to mix it, try making your own wintery riff on a Negroni, or mixing it up with cold elderflower tonic in a balloon or highball glass over ice.
Classic Doghouse goodies, £68
To finish up this post, we had to include our classic set as a suggestion. It’s classic for a reason, after all. This set includes a bottle of our award winning Renegade gin and Baller vodka, in a wicked Doghouse Distillery gift box. We’re fiercely proud of our hero products, and we’re sure they’ll go down a treat this Christmas.
