    5 Top Gifts For Cocktail Lovers This Christmas

Working out what to get for your friends and family at Christmas isn’t always easy. Fortunately, if you know a cocktail lover, then things just got simpler! We’ve put together some of our favourite ideas for treating the mixologists in your life, placing plenty of thoughtful presents under their Christmas tree. You may also get to try a few of the tipples they mix up, making these gifts that keep on giving.

1. Cocktail Books

Cocktail books are a must-have for both beginners and advanced mixologists. Not only do they look beautiful on the coffee table or sitting by a home bar, they're also packed with useful information to take your loved one’s craftsmanship to the next level. For those who are new to mixology, we recommend The Complete Home Bartender’s Guide, a classic in the world of cocktail literature. Alternatively, opt for something a little more unique that’s unlikely to be on their bookshelf with Pickle Juice, a beautifully presented book filled with inventive cocktails all containing a splash of pickle juice!

2. Calabrese Cocktail Set

If you know someone who’s just starting out on their mixology journey, treat them to the exquisitely designed Calabrese Cocktail Set for an extra special Christmas gift. Made from high-quality 18/8 Japanese steel, the set contains:

- Two-piece cocktail shaker
- Cocktail strainer
- Bar spoon
- Julep spoon

This is a present that will last a lifetime, so save it for someone special in your life.

3. Koto Old Fashioned Crystal Glass

Everybody should have at least one high-quality tumbler in their glassware collection. The Koto Crystal Glass is inspired by an old-school design for a sophisticated, elegant look and has plenty of weight to it, resting comfortably in the hand. It’s also a versatile glass, ideal for cocktails like Gin and Tonics and Old Fashioneds, as well as a simple whisky on the rocks.

4. Soba Kiri Knife

For a Christmas present certain to impress, consider the Soba Kiri Knife. Premium Japanese craftsmanship and high-grade steel combine to create a beautiful knife that’s ideal for cutting ice. To use, your recipient will simply place the knife against an ice block and use a mallet to hammer it through for a quirky, traditional ice-picking method! If that’s not a way to spice up mixology, we don’t know what is.

5. Ready to Drink Cocktails

Not every cocktail fanatic wants to mix a drink every night. Give your loved ones the gift of delicious tiples and plenty of relaxation with our Ready to Drink Cocktails, blended by expert mixologist Giancarlo Mancino in Italy. Simply add to a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice, shake, and pour with a perfectly chilled cocktail every time.
