With notes of tomatoes, basil and a touch of citrus peel, this excellent olive oil is crying out for a slice of fresh, crusty bread to be dipped into it. And with a magnum-sized bottle, the lucky recipient will get through loaves in 2019.

The most stylish chocolates to gift this season. Bar none.
For the gin-lover in your life, it has to be the gift of small batch premium gin brand Manchester Gin’s limited-edition Raspberry Infused Gin, which uses fresh raspberries as part of the distillation. The result? A delicate, slightly sweeter gin, that requires just a dash of dry tonic for the perfect festive G&T.
Nothing gets the Christmas party started quite like tequila. But make sure it’s not just any tequila; top of our shopping list this festive season is Maestro DOBEL’s Diamante, the world’s first ‘Cristalino’, multi aged tequila. Be sure to buy two bottles, one for your drinks cabinet, and one to gift.
Don’t arrive at a party empty-handed. Go beyond a bottle of fizz this festive season and arrive with this show-stopping Bûche Framboise et Cassis from Paul. Big enough to serve eight and sure to go down well, add a box of the French bakery’s mince pies to make sure there’s something for everyone.
The ultimate style-meets-substance drinks gift for the vodka-lover in your life, this quadruple-distilled vodka is filtered through Herkimer diamonds before being bottled in the instantly recognisable skull bottles. Choose from this year’s limited editions…we’re after this Aurora iridescent design.
Not a whisky, not a gin, the Botanical Spirit is a hybrid spirit featuring a base of Ncnean’s new make whisky redistilled with a selection of botanicals including fresh grapefruit and wild herbs such as bog myrtle, heather, coriander and juniper.
How about giving the whiskey lover in your life the gift of this iconic Single Grain Scotch Whisky from the House of Haig, created in partnership with David Beckham? You’d be wrong in thinking this is style over substance, it’s seriously good.
