Mother’s Day is fast approaching and it can always be difficult to find the perfect gift to show how much you care.
Finding that special gift isn’t always easy, and showing up empty-handed will never end well.
Although flowers and take it to lunch are old staples, maybe it’s time to try something different and this year the UK’s hottest trending spirit might just be the ticket.
Fortunately, Scotland is full of amazing gins that will be the perfect way to show how much you love your mum on the big day.
Tobermory’s Coast Gin
This gin, inspired by the scenic beaches and rugged coastlines of Mull, contains botanicals such as Scottish lovage, sweet kelp, lavender and glasswort, creating a delicious sweet yet salty flavour.
It features candied citrus notes and a wonderful creamy mouthfeel filled with juniper.
Glasgow (not Glasgow) smallmouths who like a big hit of flavor will appreciate Glasgow Distillery’s Makar Gin.
Bold and definitely juniper, this is a punchy gin that recommends using a chilli for garnish!
The beautiful bottle this gin comes in is almost a gift in itself, but the gin itself is also very desirable.
Mango, grapefruit and orange combine with juniper and kelp to create a deliciously indulgent maritime gin.
They also offer a limited edition card to include with your handwritten message with every online order.
For mums who are a little more socially conscious, Darnley’s Gin offers recyclable gin sachets for their entire range (Darnley’s Gin Original, Spiced Gin & Navy Strength) that make an eye-catching gift.
The range of sachets derives from plastic material (grade 7) which is not only recycled but also weighs 50% less than a glass bottle of Darnley’s Gin to transport.
And don’t worry, the gin inside is also very very tasty.
Edinburgh Gin has teamed up with popular personal care brand, Soak Sunday, to create a duo of heavenly botanical bath sets that make the perfect pampering session and Mother’s Day gift.
The limited edition set – available at SoakSunday.com for £39 – comes with a bottle of Rhubarb & Ginger from Edinburgh Gin and a bath of Soak Sunday which has been carefully created to match the gin perfectly.
The soak features aromatherapeutic scents with blends of Epsom salts and Himalayan roses – it’s to die for!
