Copperfield ‘A Christmas Carol’ Gin
Any gin that is named like this one is a must for this festive period.

Edinburgh Christmas Gin
Again, it’s all in the name, this gin deserves a place in your alcohol cabinet. It is flavoured with a unique blend of seasonal botanicals, including frankincense and myrrh, it really is a true spirit of the season. With sweet orange notes and spice from cinnamon and nutmeg, you can easily mix this gin with tonic for a seasonal take on a classic gin-lovers drink.
Sacred Christmas Pudding Gin
This gin is made with real Christmas puddings, so it absolutely had to be on the list. You will even find a handwritten Victorian recipe for a delicious Christmas pudding on the inside of the back label of this gin. Candied peel and raisins are at the forefront of this gin and it works so perfectly mixed into any festive cocktail or even just with a singular mixer.
That Boutiquey Gin Company Yuletide Gin
This jolly tipple is made using traditionally festive botanicals, as well as ingredients that are traditionally festive though not traditionally botanicals. Basically, everything that you love about Christmas has been crammed into this bottle of yuletide gin. Not only does this gin taste incredible but it looks amazing too, the edible gold flakes give every drink a snow-globe feel.
M&S Christmas Dry Gin
We know that M&S make the most amazing Christmas food but not many people know about their gin, which is also incredible by the way. This dry gin promises a true taste of the season. Containing a botanical blend of fiery ginger, cardamom and cinnamon it screams Christmas. Whether you choose to mix with tonic or add to a cocktail it is an essential bottle to have.
Eden Mill Candy Cane Christmas Gin
Think candy cane but in liquid form, this is exactly what this gin is. The candied cool peppermint twist to this gin really does make it one of a kind. Overall, it is sweet on the palate leading to a warmer, rich minty character with hints of light berry fruits. Since launching last year it has become a Christmas party essential.
Sipsmith gingerbread gin
Lastly, but by no means least, one for the gingerbread lovers. This gin smells absolutely incredible, before you even take a sip you will be hit with caramelised toffee apple, cinnamon and hints of cookie dough.
