Gin & Tonic hamper by olive magazine
- Available from olive shop (£59.99)
Treat a gin lover to our own carefully curated, luxurious hamper bursting with treats - gin, tonic and chocolate to enjoy with it are all covered. We have chosen a full-size 700ml bottle of Jensen's Bermondsey Dry gin, a rich, heady gin produced by Jensen's craft distillery. Neighbouring brand Bermondsey Mixer Co. uses natural cinchona bark from South America to give tonic its distinctive flavour and amber hue. As well as a bottle of classic tonic, this hamper comes with a variety of other flavours including grapefruit and cucumber. A selection of bean-to-bar chocolates from Bermondsey-based Lucocoa complete the hamper, with flavours ranging from milk to 70% dark and natural blonde.

Procera blue dot gin
- Available from Master of Malt (£76.85)
This is a really special, rare gin to buy a gin connoisseur. Procera is the world’s first gin to use African berries, a variety of juniper grown in the sun-soaked highland forests of Kenya. These hand-picked, air-dried berries add a uniquely nutty and earthy character to the gin, along with a rare variety of African botanicals. The combination of floral Moroccan orris root, citrusy Kenyan pixie orange and Swahili lime, Somalian acacia honey and warm spices including Zanzibari cardamom, Nigerian Selim pepper and Madagascan pink peppercorns to finish, provides a complex gin true to its African terroir. The stunning hand-blown glass bottle and palm wood stopper are created in Nairobi by Kenyan artisans, making it a showstopping gift to give and keep on display even after the gin has been drunk.

Craft Gin Club gin subscription

Give a gift that keeps on giving with a gin subscription. We tested out the best gin subscriptions and clubs to find the perfect one for you, from Sipsmith limited edition gins to clubs specialising in fun flavours, Scottish gins or local gins to your area. We loved the Craft Gin Club for a generous box that has it all, packed with snacks, mixers and syrups alongside a seriously impressive main bottle of gin.

Sip: 100 cocktails with only 3 ingredients
Sipsmith’s new gin cocktail book is a compendium of 100 fuss-free recipes, each with no more than three ingredients. What’s not to love? You can find all the classics here – from negronis to martinis – as well as plenty of lesser-known creations deserving of revival. These include the gin & it (gin, vermouth, orange bitters); the hanky panky (gin, sweet vermouth, Fernet-Branca) or even the dog’s nose (a wintry marriage of gin with dark treacle and porter).
Gin & tonic garnish print
- Available from Etsy (from £14.40)
This pretty print also doubles as a useful primer for garnishes, offering imaginative suggestions for perking up a G&T – from adding a vanilla pod to a spiced gin to garnishing herbaceous spirits with black peppercorns and strawberries.
