Even taking that into account, gin-filled Christmas baubles are an unexpected departure, but be prepared to see them adorning Christmas trees everywhere this festive season as several British distilleries are now producing them.
Pickering’s Gin comes from a gin distillery based in Edinburgh, and it is offering six different coloured plastic baubles, each of which is filled with 5cl of Pickering’s Gin. The baubles’ fame has spread and they were mentioned on Good Morning America After Hours, as well as by queen of interiors, Martha Stewart.
If you’re a gin connoisseur, you may like to try the baubles gift set from The Lakes Distillery in Cumbria. There are six baubles containing three flavours of gin – The Lakes Gin, The Lakes Sloe Gin and The Lakes Slow Gin Liqueur.
Hearth and Heritage is based in Nottinghamshire and it offers a bauble gift that is either filled with 5cl of dry gin, pink gin or Scotch whisky. They’re tied with a satin ribbon and presented in a printed gift box.
And finally, Christmas is also a time for eating chocolate, so baubles that contain both gin and chocolate sound like a winner. Luckily, Gin Tales in London has Christmas bauble that contains a 5cl bottle of gin infused with organic raw cacao.
Alcohol connoisseurs will be glad to learn that the baubles are made from specially-treated plastic, which doesn’t affect the taste of the alcohol. Also, unlike traditional baubles, they won’t shatter if they fall off the tree.
