If you are looking for a unique or unusual tipple to add to your collection then this is the blog post for you. We recommend interesting and at times utterly unusual bottles of drink, as well as a selection of brilliant gift, hampers from our sister site, Tipple Hamper Co. From a botanical pink rum to a gin made with real squid ink, the world's first pure milk vodka to a gin made with CBD oil, each one of our recommendations makes brilliant gift ideas for any special occasion.
Made with real squid ink from a secret recipe created in Penzance Cornwall. This unique addition is served from a copper flask engraved with the scenery, wildlife, folklore, and history that surrounds them. Vanilla was added to the base of the recipe to give a well-rounded mouthfeel and perceived sweetness, coupled with sea buckthorn for a tart, fresh fruit finish. Dr Squid pours black and when mixed with tonic turns a vivid pink.
Masons award-winning Dry Yorkshire Gin is a drink with real personality. They've added Yorkshire Tea to this batch for a unique flavour sensation. Subtle notes of cardamom and coriander spice. These are lifted by citrus, leading to a long, dry, black tea finish. For a deliciously dry G&T, we recommend serving with plenty of ice, Fever-Tree Indian tonic water and a twist of lemon zest.
The premium quality CBD oil used in Colorado High CBD Gin is amongst the world’s best and is sourced from hemp grown in the clean air and rich, fertile soil of the Rockies in Colorado, USA. Expert distillers have capitalised on the citrus notes of CBD, which are similar to grapefruit, to handcraft a truly refreshing and delicious citrusy gin. Its cloudy appearance is a natural consequence of the high quantity of CBD within it. Suffused with 200mg of the finest CBD in the world, Colorado High CBD Gin is best served with a premium Indian tonic, a handful of ice and finished with a garnish of grapefruit zest.
Fifty/50/Gin is different, different because they have aged half of their London dry style gin in casks for 20 years! They applied their knowledge of maturing great whiskies and Fifty/50 has taken on many of these classic characteristics. For the first 10 years they chose virgin oak casks, to infuse sweet vanilla, ginger and strong oak flavours. Since time plays such a great roll in maturation, for the second 10 years they chose ex whisky casks. These allowed the wood to slowly impart greater depth and a more gentle range of flavours.
