Boozy gifts reviewed by FalcondaleJan.Were you avoiding alcohol for “Dry January” this year? Now, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner I’ve been searching out some of the most interesting boozy gifts. I’ve found some choices to suit either the man or woman in your life. There’s even an option to suit a party of singles on Valentine’s Day. All these gifts are far more interesting than just chocolates a bottle of wine (you may know already, I’m not a wine drinker!) so there’s no excuse for dull gifts this year.

DemiJohn Raspberry Vodka Liqueur

This is a warming berry flavour and quite a syrupy texture. We think it’s best suited as an after-dinner drink or nightcap. It has a nice hit to the back of the throat but even though it’s 22% ABV it goes down very easily. It’s the perfect colour for a Valentine gift too. DemiJohn have a really huge range of liqueur flavours in vodka, gin, whiskey, brandy and rum. Any of these can be bought in a beautiful heart-shaped bottle with a personal message. With this Raspberry Vodka Liqueur the 500ml heart bottle is priced at £31.20. Do check out the heart bottle on their website; it’s quite something.

Edinburgh Gin Distillery Pomegranate and Rose Liqueur

This pale peach coloured liqueur has a Turkish delight aroma. The rose flavour really comes to the fore when you take a sip but it’s light and not sickly at all. This is a good drink to have with your dessert; it made me think of cheesecake. I like it even more as an aperitif with plain tonic water, but that didn’t suit my husband who prefers it neat. It’s certainly versatile, and would work well in a prosecco cocktail. At 20% ABV this gin liqueur is stronger than it tastes. The 31Dover website has a 500ml bottle priced at £17.95.

Peaky Blinder Irish Whiskey

This cheeky whiskey has a dark golden colour and a slightly treacle aroma. At first taste it is smooth but there’s a bite that quickly follows onto your tongue. It’s matured in sherry casks and this adds a clear flavour. If you’re used to Scottish single malt then you will notice there are no dominant peat tones. Instead a hint of smoky wood adds interest. It’s warm and easy to drink and the label conjures up a romantic version of the past for your Valentine. A 700ml bottle from 31Dover is £24.99.

Revolution Lager Making Kit

If you’ve ever wanted to bring the pub home, here’s a way around that problem! Brewing lager is made easy with this kit. All you need to do is add water. The kit includes a keg , two matching pint glasses and a pair of beer mats. After three days it will have produced eight pints of lager at 4.5% ABV. The flavour is lightly hopped and the lager is the slightly cloudy sort. The keg is a perfect accessory for a party but no one is saying you have to share! Usual price from Find Me a Gift is £29.99 but it’s recently on sale with £5 off.

Spill – A Drinking Game

I was unsure about reviewing this one but I’m so glad we gave it a go. Spill is a really entertaining game to go alongside your drink. You can play it as a couple, and my husband and I had quite a laugh with it. It would work really well in a group and I’m definitely going to take it to my next get-together with friends. It might also be perfect for those singles’ anti-Valentine’s parties.

There are lots of funny and awkward questions. With each question there’s a chance to vote, and this adds to the fun because you can see what people think of each other from their answers. There are enough cards in the pack to keep the game fresh for several uses. A number of the questions are highly risqué and a few we couldn’t understand as they were too American. Overall it was good fun, and the aim of the game is fun chat, not getting trollied. Spill is coming soon to the UK, and it’s a game for adults only. Remember: Spill responsibly!

    I am not a liqueur or whiskey drinker so none of these appeal to me. I do like the idea of the drinking game. Sounds like a lot of fun.

    • 6th February 2018 / 3:51 pm

      Oh the game is fun yes, I was afraid I would drink too much too fast but it wasn’t like that. It was good entertainment.

    • 6th February 2018 / 3:52 pm

      I have quite a few plans for things to try mixing with that, it’s a versatile one!
