Gin has a rich history dating back to the 16th century, and it’s only gotten more fascinating as time goes on. From juniper to tonic water and everything in between, the possibilities with gin are endless. Whether you’re buying for a friend, family member, or secret gin lover, we’ve got you covered. Check out our Ultimate Guide to Gifts for Gin Lovers for more ideas.
A decanter is a must for any gin lover. Not only are these things super classy and aesthetically satisfying, but they also can make the experience of drinking your favorite spirit even better. Decanting a bottle of gin allows it to “breathe” and opens up new flavor profiles that might not be present in the un-decanted version. Some decanters come with a filter to keep the finer bits out of your glass, so you don’t have to worry about inhaling those dusty spices. Having a gin decanter personalised for your recipient or a local gin distillery has become a popular option too, read more about this great gift idea below in our personalised gin gift section.
Gin Tasting Kits
There are different gin tasting kits on the market designed to help you experience the full gamut of flavours and aromas in this spirit. From kits with a small bottle of many gin types, to kits that provide the ingredients for you to make and try your own gin flavours, the possibilities are endless. You could try a well known brand’s tasting kit, which will usually include a small bottle of each of their range; while other tasting kits will offer a range of flavoured gins from many different brands and manufacturers.
Books about Gin
If you want to learn more about the history of gin, a good place to start is one of these books. There are so many great books on gin and its history that it’s hard to choose just one. If you don’t know much about gin, you might get overwhelmed with all the options. But if you have a sense of what your friend or loved one is interested in learning about, that should help narrow down your choices. For example, if they say they love history and all things English, then The Gin Drinkers Guide by Julian Templeman might be the perfect book for them. If they are interested in botany and botanical infusions, I Am A Gin Addict by Lucinda Dickens is a must-read. If they want to know more about the difference between dry and sweet gins, The Flavors Of Gin by Ian Fleming & Gwen Taylor is right up their alley.
Gin can be consumed in many ways, but we’ve found a few that are especially tasty. Chocolate and gin is a combination of two of our favourite things, so you know it’s going to be good. With today’s popularity, you will find many options and pairings that might just be the perfect gift. Some gifts ideas include chocolate, cheese and even marmalade!
