We've rounded up some of the best gin gift sets on the market - from a refreshing gin and tonic in the summer sun or a classic Martini at Christmas. Whatever the occasion, gin is always a crowd-pleaser.
Versatile and delicious, and boasting many different botanicals that pack a punch, it's no wonder that gin is so popular in the UK. Especially when science seemingly suggests gin is good for you (opens in new tab) too. There are so many different ways to enjoy gin - be it on its own on the rocks, mixed with complimentary tonic water, or in one of many classic gin cocktails (opens in new tab). And it's this that makes it the perfect present suggestion for a friend or a well-deserved treat for yourself.
Doing the hard work for you, we've collated the best gin presents on the market. From luxury hampers that combine all sorts of juniper-heavy goodies to gift sets offering a variety of gin miniatures, our selection provides plenty of buying inspiration.
"For the discerning drinker gin is a wonderful gift, full of complex botanical flavours to be savoured and enjoyed," says Deputy Food Editor, Rose Fooks (opens in new tab). "There are now so many varieties each with a unique personality and flavour profile: from classic juniper heavy London dry, to a zesty Mediterranean number. A gin gift set can be a great introduction to an exciting new character or a rekindling of a trusty old favourite. Either way, giving the gift of a G&T to be sipped and savoured is always a lovely thing."
