Black Cow Vodka and Black Cow vodka Gift packs
The original spirit brand to champion sustainability, award-winning Black Cow is the only vodka made entirely from whey from grass-grazed cow’s milk leftover from the cheese-making process. Once distilled, it’s filtered through coconut-shell charcoal, producing exceptionally smooth vodka with a unique creamy character. What’s more, they have an exclusive range of present ideas for the Christmas season including gift packs with a sustainable gold plated straw, cocktail shaker and the cheese which is made at the same dairy farm as the distillery.
Available from selected Sainsbury’s stores, Harvey Nichols, Hedonism and Amazon.
Nordes Atlantic Galician Gin
Nordés Atlantic Galician Gin is a rather intriguing Spanish gin made with an Albariño-grape-based spirit, rather than your more commonly seen grain-based spirit.
Named after a north-easterly wind, the gin is produced in a small distillery in San Pedro de Sarandon, close to Santiago de Compostela, Galicia’s capital in North-Western Spain. Lemon verbena is paired with laurel and mellow sage warmed up with a pinch of juniper, cardamom, ginger, hibiscus and tea. This results in a gin with gastronomic notes of eucalyptus, laurel and mint and delicate flavours of white fruit.
Nordés Gin (70 cl) ABV 40% – RRP £35 – is available nationwide at Master of Malt.
Packaged in a beautiful bottle, this gin has a bold flavour profile that would befit winter drinks and cocktails.

Lanson Rose Label Brut Rosé NV

Its soft pink colour (thanks to the alchemy of Lanson’s Chef de Caves and his team of winemakers), with hints of soft, succulent berries, makes this the perfect accompaniment to any occasion as it is delicious on its own or with fish, turkey and/or fruit desserts and /or cheeses. Good length on the finish.

Cîroc White Grape vodka
Get ready for the gold rush with CÎROC White Grape, the new and limited-edition release from the luxury French vodka. With a sophisticated flavour and bold gold standout bottle – CÎROC White Grape is certain to add a wink of sparkle to your celebrations.
Distilled five times to ensure the highest quality and an opulent silky-smooth feel, CÎROC vodka is then masterfully infused with a distinctive blend of ripe and fruity white grapes. The result is a perfect rich tasting spirit imbued with delicate floral notes, hints of crisp citrus and lush honeydew.
Porter’s Gin for the gin enthusiast
Unbound by conventional methods, Porter’s have created a gin using a combination of both modern and traditional techniques, using cold distillation which allows them to extract light flavours from delicate botanicals normally damaged by heat, making for an exquisitely smooth gin to enjoy during the festive season. Choose from Porter’s classic – a balanced juniper led gin with citrus notes or why not make the festive season a tropical one with Porter’s Tropical Old Tom, featuring a classic juniper base lifted by exotic notes of passion fruit, guava and white tea.
