1. Three Tasty ASDA Treats


The Christmas gin ASDA range for the 2019 festive period consists of three tasty infusions, which truly embody the tastes of Christmas. Firstly, the Extra Special Winter Spiced Gin is triple distilled, and infused with fruity Cranberry and Clementine, and spicy cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. ASDA recommends that you serve this number with a simple lemonade, to match the fruit and spice.

This first choice is certainly a classic, but the other two are a more unique twist on classic Christmas flavours. With the intriguing choice of Mince Pie Gin Liqueur, and the Toasted Marshmallow Gin Liqueur, there’s something for everyone. Simply pair the former with the ASDA range of tasty tonics, and the latter with prosecco, and you’re in for a winner.

2. Aldi’s 12 Gins of Christmas


We love gin, but we love a collection of gin tasters even more! The idea that you can have a small taste, and then decide your favourites, is a great opportunity to make an informed choice for a larger purchasing decision. Aldi’s Twelve Gins of Christmas range includes flavours such as:


  • Traditional Gin with Berries and Tonic

  • Salted Caramel and Apple Gin with Cola

  • Blueberry and Vanilla Gin with American Cream Soda

  • Passion Fruit and Coconut Gin with Pineapple Juice

  • Chilli and Ginger Gin with Ginger Ale

  • Blackcurrant and Rhubarb Gin with Ginger Beer

  • Plum and Pink Grapefruit Gin with Tonic


These three festive cocktails show off the spirit of Christmas through the sparkly decorations

3. M&S Christmas Gin Snow Globe


The M&S christmas gin, which is getting everyone talking, is the Clementine Gin Liqueur Snow Globe. Not only does it embody the tastes of Christmas, but the 23 carat edible gold leaf floating around in the bottle creates a beautiful snow globe effect.

The bottle is designed with a Christmas tree backdrop, which really adds to the scene. Simply shake the bottle, and watch as the golden flakes float across a pine tree landscape.

M&S haven’t stopped there, though, as their Christmas Spirit Gin also embodies the Christmas season. Containing a delicious botanical blend of ginger, cardamom and cinnamon, this fiery spice mix is perfect to ignite the Christmas spirit within. Serve as a gin and tonic for a simple, yet effective, Christmas party winner. 

Finally, M&S are winning the game, having also introduced tiny gin-filled baubles. Perfect for a Christmas gift, or to pop on the tree ready for Christmas day, this is ideal for anyone who wants to get a full taste of the M&S range.

4. Edinburgh Gin’s Zesty Christmas Gin


Edinburgh Gin are a firm favourite amongst the British public, and they’re certainly keeping this title through their Christmas gin flavours! Including notes of frankincense and myrrh, alongside the classic Christmas taste of nutmeg and numerous botanicals for added depth, this harnesses the spirit of Christmas in one mouthful.

All you need to do is mix this tasty treat in the classic gin and tonic style, and wait for the zesty orange taste to fill your mouth. Edinburgh Gin have also suggested that this gin would be ideal for mixing up a Negroni, as it’ll balance the Campari’s bitterness perfectly.

5. Eden Mill’s Candy Cane Christmas Gin


Last, but by no means least, Eden Mill have introduced their Candy Cane Christmas gin; a classic flavour choice for the festivities. This ruby red elixir is flavoured with notes of sweet candy at the start, and cool peppermint and berry hints later on.

The red colour has been achieved through the use of bilberry and hibiscus, which adds a truly festive touch to this delightful tipple. This makes it a striking choice for a gift or a Christmas party! Simply add to cranberry juice, or even hot chocolate, for a seasonal treat.

To add to this delicious bottle of goodness, Eden Mill have also introduced their very own Twelve Gins of Christmas collection. Including delicious flavours, such as Carraway and Black Pepper, Chilli and Gingersnap, Plum and Pink Grapefruit, and more, get a taste of everything they have to offer in one purchase.
