The holiday season is upon us, and it’s the perfect time to indulge in some festive spirits.
Whether you’re searching for the ideal present for a friend or loved one who enjoys a tipple, or simply looking to treat yourself, this curated list of Christmas gifts for alcohol lovers has got you covered. From champagne to gin and whisky, these offerings are sure to delight anyone with a penchant for the finer things in life.
Champagne Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé: A Robe of Elegance
The Champagne Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé is already renowned for its exceptional taste, but it now comes adorned in a robe that’s as exquisite as the liquid it cradles. The Petal Robe, with its unique design, draws inspiration from the rich palette of colours found within the Cuvée Rosé itself. Each enamel stroke meticulously applied to the robe creates a delicate ‘petal’ pattern, showcasing hues of soft rose, apricot pinks, and warmer brioche tones.
When bathed in sunlight, this robe exhibits a captivating iridescence, revealing deeper tones of orange and even hints of blue. These shades echo the nuanced palette of red and black fruits that underpin the Cuvée Rosé’s flavour profile. Whether you’re hosting an aperitif-laden pre-autumnal dinner party or seeking a distinctive gift for a champagne aficionado, the Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Petal Robe adds a stylish touch to any table-scaping endeavour.
The Champagne Laurent-Perrier’s Cuvée Rosé Petal Robe is now available for purchase at Laurent-Perrier and Selfridges, priced at £97.99 for a 70cl bottle.

- Smokehead Original 43% VOL. 5cl: Immensely smoky, subtly sweet, with notes of sea salt and spice.

Smokehead Twisted Stout: A Whisky with a Twist
Smokehead’s latest offering, Twisted Stout, defies convention and embraces innovation. This single malt whisky has been finished in stout casks, resulting in a whisky that’s fiercely full-on, smoky, and surprisingly smooth. It delivers an unexpected and unusual taste with silky-sweet smoothness.
Twisted Stout stands out with its delightful contrast—fiery intensity and peat from Islay malt whisky combine harmoniously with sweet, smooth chocolate aromas. Whether enjoyed in cocktails or sipped on the rocks, it’s an exploration of new flavours while honouring the old classics. If whisky is indeed the water of life, then Twisted Stout is a more audacious, wonderful, and weirder way of living.
Twisted Stout (70cl/700ml) boasts an ABV of 43% and can be obtained from Smokehead and specialist global retailers for an RRP of £57.50.
This holiday season, surprise the alcohol aficionados in your life with gifts that reflect their discerning tastes.
