Looking for the perfect gift for your nearest, dearest gin enthusiast, or perhaps you’d like to introduce someone to their first foray into a bottle of botanical dreams? There are so many brands and flavours to choose from, it can feel a little daunting to find the right gift, but you’ve come to the right place. We've asked our gin expert, Pippa Guy, to share some insider ideas for gin gifting that’ll cover all preferences and personalities. Whether they like classic flavours, or fruitier explorations, there’s something for everyone on this list.

Take them to India with a citrus twist  

Gifting for someone who’s got an adventurous palate? This will go down well. When Charles Tanqueray first created his famous original gin, he travelled to India to find the best botanicals, and that initial journey has now inspired this new bottle – a brilliant blend of British and Indian flavours. The rare Rangpur lime featured in this gin is a special fruit that’s actually a hybrid between a lemon and a mandarin, which gives it a truly unique citrus twist. As Pippa’s favourite palate cleanser, its zingy flavour profile works well across all seasons. Top with some ginger ale for a deliciously spicy serve.

Add a splash of colour with pink gin 

This one’s for those who like their gin slightly sweet, super smooth, light and pink. Gordon’s Pink Gin is based on an original recipe that dates all the way back to the 1880s, expertly crafted to reflect the authentic taste of classic Gordon’s gin, accented with natural fruit flavours for a high quality, pure berry taste. Gin botanicals are complemented with the sweetness of raspberries and strawberries, balanced by the sharp tanginess of redcurrant. The result is a beautifully blushing, pink gin that not only looks great, but tastes great too. Why not try it in the Pink Paloma?

Whisk them away to the Italian hills  

Villa Ascenti is a romantically rustic gin from the hills of Piemonte, Italy. Steeped in the provenance of its regional ingredients, the fresh herbs are distilled within hours of harvest to capture the freshest flavour for a velvety smooth gin. The Villa Ascenti Gin is crafted with zesty Tuscan juniper berries, fresh mint, thyme and subtly sweet Moscato grapes, giving it a cool and fruity taste that’s hard to compare. It’s certified as one of the most unique and beautiful gins that Pippa’s ever tried. Which is saying a lot, coming from a gin connoisseur. A perfect gift for a gin lover who’s looking for something new.

Gift a British bottle of potato gin  

A must-try for all gin enthusiasts, Chase gin has a unique distilling process: it’s made from potatoes instead of grain, giving it a unique and incredibly pleasing creamy mouth-feel. Once distilled, it’s transferred into copper pots with the addition of 10 botanicals, including coriander seed, cinnamon bark, and ginger, to create a flavour that’s spicy, citrusy and simply amazing. The Chase range offers a variety of flavours to explore, but Pippa’s choice would be Chase Pink Grapefruit & Pomelo for a zippy, zesty gin that brings a unique taste experience to classic gin cocktails.

Try a refreshing non-alcoholic option

For those who aren’t drinking: alcohol-free alternatives for gin are booming. They’re packed with the same botanicals, so they can mimic the flavours of alcoholic gin, almost without detection. One of Pippa’s favourites is Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla 0.0%, which combines bittersweet Seville oranges with orange blossom and the core botanicals from Tanqueray’s London Dry Gin. If you could bottle the sun soaked Mediterranean, this would be it. Inspired by Charles Tanqueray’s travels to Spain, this unique citrus gin was taken from an original recipe that Charles wrote over 140 years ago.

Pamper them with a deluxe gin gift set

If you want to go the extra mile and offer something really special, the Tanqueray No. Ten Gin Martini Cocktail Gift Pack is a great choice. According to Pippa, gin is designed to be enjoyed via a martini, so if your giftee is yet to equip their home bar with the necessary tools to make one, this will give them everything they need to enjoy a true gin cocktail in all its glory. Inside, you’ll find a bottle of Tanqueray No. Ten, a jigger, a mixing glass, a strainer, and a coupe glass for the perfect serve. All wrapped in a beautiful box, where you’ll also find the recipe and a QR code that unlocks a digital cocktail experience.
