You’ve assembled tissue paper, sticky tape, scissors and ribbon. But you are missing one essential item. A perfectly crafted Christmas cocktail, of course! Before you start to prepare presents to place under the tree, don’t forget to make yourself a gin cocktail. For an evening of sensational sipping, you’ll first need to discover what kind of sipper you are here.

You might discover you are a Classic cocktail connoisseur, in which case, why not carefully craft a Negroni? Featuring just three ingredients, this beloved Italian cocktail couldn’t be simpler. Zesty sippers will enjoy a decadent Zesty Orange Expresso Martini, which was designed for nights in front of a roaring fire – or twinkling fairy lights. While our Chilli & Lime Winter Spritz is the ideal way for Daring sippers to turn up the heat.

From a bottle of our award-winning gin to a copper jigger, you’ll be a wrapping master in no time.
