Anniversary Gift Ideas for Spirits or Cocktail Lovers

Anniversary Gift
1-year wedding anniversary gift ideas for newly-weds

You’ve enjoyed 365 days of marriage – congrats! Even though the theme for the first anniversary is paper, you don’t have to spend a lot on paper notes to buy the perfect gift. Show the love with a special gift box, like a Gin Martini Cocktail Gift Pack or a Whisky Gift Pack, that can be enjoyed long after opening the box. You can opt for the premium Gin like Tanqueray No 10 or if you are going for whisky, then look for the ultimate Johnnie Walker labels. Another gift idea to mark a paper anniversary is the most prestigious rum Venezuela has ever produced – Pampero Aniversario Rum. The distinctive bottles are paper wrapped in the history and the story of Llanero (Venezuelan Cowboy), the brand’s icon. Here's to many more years of bliss!

5-year wedding anniversary gift ideas for special couples

Cheers to five years! Wood is the theme for the fifth anniversary. And with many weddings and special occasions taking place during the summer, a wooden picnic hamper could make an ideal anniversary gift. But you don’t want to leave it empty! Add a special surprise inside with a bottle of Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla gin or CÎROC Mango Flavoured Vodka – the perfect base for delicious, summery cocktails. 

And if you’re involved in the celebrations, why not try some of these cracking celebration cocktails to make at home?

If you and your partner love to go on adventures, a trip to Scotland to see the places, and people (and wood casks) that make the world’s most iconic whiskies is a memorable way to celebrate your wood anniversary.  

If you book a distillery experience, treat yourselves to a Mortlach 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky to toast on the day. This whisky powerhouse, known as the Beast of Dufftown, has been double cask matured in both European and American oak to enhance the distinctively rich flavour. 

This is a whiskey not to be missed out on. 

7-year anniversary gift ideas worthy of a toast

7-year anniversary
61, 320 hours, 2,555 days - we can’t leave out lucky number seven. The theme here is copper which symbolises warmth, comfort and security. 

If you’re looking for a gift for a couple who are big lovers of Scotch, Copper Dog is the one. It gets its name from a length of pipe which colourful characters working in Scottish distilleries used to hide down their trouser leg to help themselves to a wee dram of the whisky. Or you can’t go wrong with something like the copper cocktail jigger –the perfect pour for the perfect pair!

10-year wedding anniversary gift ideas to mark the special occasion

One decade of fun down; much more to come. The theme for the tenth-anniversary gift is tin. While tin doesn’t always scream luxury (one reason many go for diamond jewellery on the tenth anniversary!) it’s an opportunity to gift something more thoughtful and personalised. It’s a whole decade, after all! 

If you’re looking for a heart melting gift for your partner, one idea is a street or village name sign of the place you met which is usually made of tin. And if you want to throw everything at it, make the gift even more exceptional by including an engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label or Johnnie Walker Red Label with a message of love they’ll never forget. A great gift for someone who appreciates good whisky – and both drinks come in a fancy tin gift box too.
