For everyone looking for Christmas pressies for gin lovers, I’ve rounded up some of the best things I’ve seen this year, from books to candles, to advent calendars, basically everything gin related!

For when you need to sneek a subtle nip – perfect for Edinburgh Ginger and Rhubarb gin at this time of year (also a great present choice!) – great for warming the cockles!
