Gift-giving is one of the most joyful #momentsofchristmas. So as you spend a cosy night in, hidden away from peeping eyes and wrapping heartfelt presents to be discovered under the tree come Christmas morning, be sure to treat yourself to an indulgent tipple or two.

So for the #momentsofchristmas when you’re snipping, sticking, folding and twirling, we recommend our Portobello Road Gin Aexander cocktail.

Why the curious spelling we here you cry? Well it’s Christmas so there’s no-el (sorry!).

The Aexander is like a sweet treat after dinner dessert, made with gin, cherry liqueur, double cream and spoonful of mince pie mincemeat.

Christmas shopping is perhaps the marmite of #momentsofchristmas; but whether you adore or abhore it, there is a universal consensus that a post-shopping cocktail is a requisite.

So for that moment of Christmas when the shopping is finally finished and you’ve ticked off the last gift from your list, we’ve created the aptly titled Sarah Jessica Parsnip.

Made with our new limited edition festive gin, ‘A Parsnip In A Pear Tree’, it’s the perfect cocktail to help you relax and unwind.

For our version of the Martini we have replaced the traditional dry vermouth with the little know but delicious French fortified wine Pineau de Charentes, which tastes kind of like a combination of dessert wine and Cognac. Keep it in the fridge, you only need a little bit to make this drink, so you can enjoy a glass of it on its own, before lunch or after dinner… maybe alongside the cheese board!

Martini style cocktails are the drinks where one can really appreciate the intricacies of a gin. This one is a little sweeter than a traditional Martini but the sweetness is somewhat tempered by the drinks icy coldness. We wrap together a strip of parsnip and a twist of lemon peel and pin it with a cocktail stick for an elegant garnish which compliments the flavour of the drink.

In crafting our signature serves our purpose is simple, to deliver the most elegant and refined flavour profiles imaginable. Embracing the unique characteristics of Portobello Road gin, from fresh fruit notes to rich mellow tones, we’ve created serves for every palate.

Sweet and sumptuous, like a deluxe after dinner dessert, Alexander The Great is a luxurious serve that gently compliments the liquorice root and nutmeg of the gin. Combing rich chocolatey notes with a syrupy smooth mouthfeel this resplendent sipper warms the heart and treats the tastebuds.

We often think of a Gin and Tonic as a summertime drink but the Christmas time flavours of Directors Cut No. 4 lend themselves very well to tonic water. For this one we have paired it with Fever Tree’s Ltd Edition Clementine Tonic which is available in good grocers throughout the festive season. A Christmas Gin with a Christmas tonic! Perfect.

We compliment the parsnip flavours in the gin with a strip of raw parsnip and add a touch of Christmas colour with a merry sprinkling of red-currants.

This drink is our Directors Cut No.4 version of the classic American Prohibition era Bee’s Knees Cocktail which sprang from the speakeasies of the United States in the 1920’s.

It is, contrary to popular opinion, actually one of a very few cocktails which survive from this era. Most of the classic cocktails we enjoy today were actually created long before prohibition started. Bee’s Knees was a popular slang term in the day which meant “The best!”
