Some of us love the romantic notion of Valentine’s day and for others, it’s a corporate, consumerist waste of time. But whether you’re sharing chocolates in front of an open fire, or spending the evening catching up on your laundry, we can all agree on one thing to love. A great Scottish gin.
So don’t worry if your house is a card and flower-free zone. Or if you’re looking for an ideal last-minute romantic gift for the gin-lover you love. Here are 6 beautiful Scottish Gins you’re sure to fall head over heels for.
Share the love with Ginerosity – the social enterprise gin. Not only is it a very tasty gin to enjoy with tonic and lime, but profits from the sales are invested into projects that will help and support underprivileged or disadvantaged young people.
So follow your heart and drink gin you can feel good about!
It was love at first sight when we clapped eyes on these limited edition gins from McQueen.The double juniper and peppercorn and vanilla rose expressions come in stunning white bottles that will look fantastic on any gin shelf. Even better, they’re exclusive to Aldi and just £20 each! We advise you get down there quick though, as no doubt Aldi shoppers will LOVE these.
Yes, it has a romantic rose pink colour, but that’s not the only reason you’ll be falling for Sumac from Crossbill Gin. We were lucky enough to try it in an exclusive cocktail “Love Reviver #2”, specially created by the makers for Valentine’s Day and we were smitten. Check out the recipe video on our website.
Named after Arbikie’s master distiller, Kirsty’s gin is a true labour of love. Kirsty worked tirelessly for years to get just the right blend of Scottish botanicals to give this gin it’s smooth and distinctive flavour. Not only that, but it’s a genuine ‘field to bottle’ gin, so you know each glass has been distilled with love.
We couldn’t talk about gins we love without mentioning Eden Mill’s Love Gin. Made with rose petals and hibiscus and available in this stunning love gift set, this really is the ideal gift for the season of love (or any time of the year, really).
Last but not least, the ultimate expression of love in a glass? The clever people at Edinburgh Gin have come up with a special edition Valentine’s gin. Blushing pink in colour with a delicate floral and citrus taste, we can’t imagine a more apt way to say “I love you” (you can say it to yourself, right?)
