Mount Gay, Passoã cocktail kits and Rémy Martin: here are all the lush gifts to have you and your loved ones a merry Christmas indeed.
Christmas is like a staycation. For the most part, everyone is off work, you spend a boatload of cash living it large, and you can gorge on traditional dishes (in this case, roasties and Yorkshire puddings) and booze to your heart’s content. It’s a triple win really, except for when you’re stuck on what exactly to tickle your tastebuds with.
Seeing as Christmas is a time to indulge in tasty treats and most decadent bevvies, we decided to shine the spotlight on a few of the services best buys…
To quench your thirst we went classic by way of The Whisky Exchange, starting with a £128 limited edition bottle of Mount Gay’s Port Cask Expression from the Master Blender Collection (it is as bougie as it sounds). This particular batch has been aged in tawny port casks for five years, double distilled in pot still rums that too have been matured in ex-American whiskey casks for 14 years only to be finished in tawny port casks for a further year, making them a year shy of the person currently writing this…
Sticking with the heavy spirits, Westland’s Garryana Single Malt American Whiskey and Octomore’s Scottish Barley 11.1 heavily-peated Islay single malt scotch are a perfect present for those who like the harder stuff. Priced at £165 and £125 respectively, these finely brewed liquors contain aromas ranging from vanilla, raspberry, peach yoghurt, toffee and even pencil shavings, though we’ll leave you to decipher which is more.
Should all things fruity take your fancy, why not pick up Passoã’s Pornstar Martini Cocktail Kit, and bring the bottomless brunches of Turtle Bay or cocktail trees of Slug and Lettuce straight to your dinner table. Rémy Martin have taken a similar direction in collaborations by teaming up Heads Hearts & Tails for the ultimate Old Fashioned cocktail kit. Fitted with five measures of Rémy Martin 1738, four syrups and four garnishes, get your bar kart out and fashion up your very own signature concoction (at Wonderland ours would be anything pink).
After all of that, you must be fiending for a snack –– Rémy Martin have us covered here too. Launched in partnership with BoroughBox themselves, the XO food pairing box has everything you could ever need on a cracker; from cheese, chocolate and fruit, all of which will enhance the flavour festival already in full swing for your year-end celebrations, trust us.
