When it comes to gifts, I’m the first to admit, I can seem hard to buy for.
Even this weekend, Mr GFB was asking about a genever that I’d mentioned (he’s good, he writes things down to remember) that I’d forgotten I wanted as it’s on a rather long list.
But I get it. How do you buy a gin lover a new gin? One they haven’t tried, already got or – heaven forbid – have tried and don’t like?
A gin subscription is a perfect idea – and takes away the worry. Whether it’s a full bottle treat, or (just in time for Valentine’s Day) Flavourly’s new Letterbox Gin gift box. Two 50mls of a gin not available anywhere else – perfect to treat that someone you’d like to get to know just a little better.
The two pours arrive well packaged in a perfectly letterbox sized box (even the base is a little cheeky). Inside, you’ll find a little gift card, which holds recommendations on the reverse. In the first of these, Flavourly have a gin liqueur from Strathearn Distillery in Scotland – well known for its Heather and Oaked Aged gins.
The liqueur is 20% ABV – so perfectly sippable neat with just a little ice, or if you want to get your romance on, can be added to a little fizz for something slightly drier.
On the palate, it’s sweet, soft, round with hints of powdery raspberries with hints of the honey coming through at the end. A little tonic, or a little fizz opens it up, letting the fruit and florals play. Mr GFB enjoyed it so much, the glass of fizz didn’t re-materialise until it was empty, proving it perfect for his sweet tooth.
For £9.99 this is a cute little gift to show the gin lover in your life that you’re thinking about them. You can personalise the note inside, and there’s no worrying about whether they’re going to be in to receive it. Just order it and wait.
And who knows. Maybe they might share?
