Bottoms up: Drinks Gift Guide 2016

2014 Berry Bros. & Rudd Good Ordinary Claret (13%), £9

Their best-selling wine for many decades, GOC—as it is known—brilliantly highlights the sheer drinkability of modern red Bordeaux. Bright, medium ruby in colour, with a siren-like nose of black cherries, bramble fruit and wood smoke, it is instantly appealing.

The palate follows through with delicious, juicy, black fruit and a long, velvety finish. Equally at home with a weekday supper or a grand Sunday roast, it is the perfect wine for all occasions.


Whiskey Wedge, £18

The perfect combination of both style and functionality; after freezing, your new-found accessory will form the shape of a wedge on the side of your glass, leaving room for your favorite tipple, perfectly chilled.


Edgerton Pink Gin 70cl, £24.90

Pink gin, a traditional nautical tipple consisting of gin and Angostura bitters, was launched in 1824—initially as a cure for sea sickness. Edgerton’s version, the world’s first commercially produced, is seriously yummy, blended with 15 exotic ingredients, including pomegranate. And look at it! So pretty, just crying out for cocktail experimentation.

Skinny Prosecco

Thomson & Scott Skinny Prosecco 75cl, £18

Our favourite drink just got better. Lower in sugar than your average bubbly, thus perfect for the dreary January detox—heck, why not have two?
