And if they love nothing better but to sip on a G&T (or any gin cocktail for that matter), you're in for a treat. Because we’re here to give you the lowdown on gin and top tips on what to look for when buying a gin birthday gift. Let's go…
Gin Birthday Gifts: Ideas To Delight Gin Lovers
First Up, Why Gift Gin?
Other than knowing your bestie loves to sip it on a night out or when they're hosting, why should you gift someone special a bottle of gin? According to the experts, gin is an excellent birthday gift choice because it's incredibly versatile and offers a wide selection of flavours. Whether your bestie prefers a classic London dry gin, or something premium and citrussy like Tanqueray No.TEN, or a fruitier number for the summer sunshine like Tanqueray Flor De Sevilla, there's a gin for absolutely everyone! Gin is a gift that keeps giving and a spirit that never gets boring. The spirit is so versatile in cocktails, whether you’re in the mood for a Martini or something more effervescent like a G&T. Gin botanicals bring such diversity of flavour to the final serve. Also, as your bestie is a gin enthusiast, they will appreciate a thoughtful gin birthday gift that matches their taste preferences, meaning they'll appreciate it even more.
What Should You Look For In A Gin Birthday Gift?
When choosing a gin gift, there are a few things to consider. Does the person you're buying for prefer a classic London Dry like Tanqueray? Are they all about pink gin? Or are citrusy and herbaceous flavours more of their vibe? And hey, don't forget to consider the quality of the gin! When it comes to this fine spirit, experts say that quality is everything. A good gin should nail the balance between botanicals and flavours, while also delivering a smooth and consistent taste. If your mum loves a premium gin with a bright citrus heart, we recommend treating her to a nice bottle of Tanqueray No. Ten. She'll be over the moon to receive this beautiful green bottled spirit that is rich in gin botanicals and designed in an art deco style.
All They Want Is 'Their' Gin
You know your dad loves London Dry and that he loves to sip on a Tanqueray & Tonic at the weekends, so why not gift him a Tanqueray Rangpur? With a fiery addition of ginger, rangpur lime and bay leaf, this unusual and tasty gin is a superb match with ginger ale! Gordon’s London Dry Gin is another great choice, especially if you're on a budget. It's a classic staple gin! And as it's been kicking around since the 18th century, it's a fave for many. According to the experts, Gordon's London Dry Gin is renowned for its delightful juniper-forward profile, making it a wonderful addition to any gin lover's home bar. If you're buying for someone who always orders a fruity gin cocktail in the bar after work, a bottle of Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla is the gift for them. They can use it to whip gin cocktails like a Sevilla Negroni or a Sevilla Marmalade Martini.
For The Exceptional Moments
If someone special is celebrating a 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th and beyond, the big, big birthdays call for something exceptional. But what do you get a gin lover other than a bottle of gin? Something with a personal touch! Turn a bottle of their favourite drink into a keepsake by engraving it with a heartfelt message. Another idea is to buy them a gin gift basket. They are great for levelling up special moments. We like to think of them as giving a loved one an experience to wow their senses and for that we recommend a Martini Cocktail Making Kit. You should look for the one that features all the glassware, barware and recipe you need to craft the ultimate G&Ts!
We genuinely hope these ideas have inspired you in your search for the perfect gin birthday gift for your gin-loving friend or loved one. Whether you're on a tight budget or ready to go all out, these suggestions are guaranteed to impress any gin enthusiast! Enjoy the thrill of finding that special gift and make their day truly memorable!
