A splash of Christmas cheer

A hamper of locally made gins and rums makes for the perfect gift this Christmas!

This year’s Christmas may be one that is celebrated differently across the globe, and because of that, how we celebrate and who we celebrate with is at the front of our minds, maybe more than ever. Still, one thing that won’t change is who we’ll be buying gifts for, and which gifts we’ll choose to buy them, because gifts can often say just as much about the person giving them as they do about the recipient.

One gift that makes perfect sense this Christmas season, and will always be sure to warm the bellies and spirits of the person receiving it, is a hamper of one-of-a-kind gins and rums from Cornish Rock Gin. Gin and champagne are gifts that are not only perfect for the time, but are a welcome addition to any day or occasion throughout the year – and a continuous, happy reminder of the person who gifted it.

Cornish Rock Gin has a wide variety of flavours to choose from, but this year’s hampers give the buyer, and the lucky recipient, the chance to try many of the flavours the team of distillers have created in their local Cornish base of operations. There are 13 hamper options in total; from an ‘All Gin’ hamper containing all six of the flavours they offer – Classic, Pink Rock Gin, Cornish Gold, Blue Angel, Orange Sunset, and Cherry Kiss – to a choice of three ‘Gin & Fizz’ hampers. Each comes with one flavour of Rock Gin paired with a bottle of champagne to go alongside.

Christmas this year may have to be celebrated differently, but that doesn’t mean the festive nature has to change. Whether you’ll be there in person to celebrate with family and a few friends, or sending a hamper in your stead, choosing a locally made gin and rum hamper with all, or a specially selected flavour of gin and champagne of your choice, can be a great and unique way to inject some personality into this year’s festivities.
