What To Drink Now: Special Festive Gifting For You

As cold nights start to draw in this festive season, look no further than the ANGEL’S ENVY Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Finished in Port Wine Barrels to warm you up over the holidays, secondary finished in hand-selected casks that add a distinct level of flavour and complexity to each drop.

Tasted at every step, the hand-crafted whiskey is aged for up to six years and then finished in 60-gallon Portuguese ruby port wine French oak casks to create unique notes of vanilla, ripe fruit and toast, a punch of vanilla and maple syrup and Madeira on the finish.

Aged for up to 6 years in port wine casks in barrels made from French oak, in every bottle of ANGEL’S ENVY is a clean, copper-toned wash of sweetness. With subtle strains of vanilla, offset by a toasted nuttiness and bitter chocolate, encompassing raisins and maple syrup, this award-winning whiskey is ideal for a post-Christmas dinner tipple or in a Manhattan. Soft and, appropriately enough, heavenly on the palette, its traces of port will have you enjoying the toasty warmth of the festive season in no time. Available from The Whisky Exchange.
Discover the full range of flavours of Highland whiskies with this mini tasting box of ABERFELDY Highland Single Malts. The 12 Year Old, 16 Year Old and 21 Year Old whiskies from the famous distillery are renowned for their characteristically delicious honeyed richness in every drop and complexity that develops with the whisky’s maturity. Bottled in a miniature set that belies their diverse flavours, from hints of smoke and vanilla to honeyed fruitcake and toasted coconut, this selection is guaranteed to add just the right amount of warmth and sweetness for the winter festivities. Available from The Whisky Exchange.



For those just embarking on their whisky journey, THE DEVERON 10 Year Old Highland Single Malt Whisky is the perfect gift from the Highland, with notes of smooth toffee, green apple and creamy oak. Distilled in Scotland close to the ever-raging waters and restless winds where the River Deveron meets the North Sea, THE DEVERON uses a unique distilling technique to create a light and fruity spirit, with notes of salty shoreline, sturdy apple, dried fruits with a nutty warmth on the finish. With its cool crispness, this spirit makes for a great refresher after your Boxing Day lunch. Available from Amazon and Waitrose.

Give the gift of gold with ABERFELDY’s signature 12 Year Old whisky to whisky veterans and first-timers, cased in a beautiful ‘gold bar’ box, a nod to both the gold deposits in the land on which the ABERFELDY distillery is built and the famed Pitilie Burn renowned for its promise of gold, from which ABERFELDY continue to draw water. Enhanced by a whisper of smoke, cutting through the flavour of spiced and honeyed plump fruits, creamy vanilla and the suggestion of fudge, this remains a reliable choice for the festivities. Available from AmazonandMaster of Malt.


SANTA TERESA 1796, RRP £49.95
Taste a little bit of history with SANTA TERESA 1796, a smooth and elegant rum blended for up to 35 years and aged in bourbon oak barrels, then aged further using their signature solera method – a technique famously incorporated into the production of sherry – for a drier, more balanced flavour. The original cask was never emptied, and is habitually topped up with a younger rum, so that every bottle bears traces of the very first 1796 cask in it, giving the careful notes of vanilla, cinnamon, dark chocolate, pepper, nuts, prunes and leather a real emphasis. A rum to savor, treat yourself to a Santa Teresa 1796 Hot Buttered Rum cocktail this festive season to warm yourself on a cold winter’s night. Available from Master of Malt and Amazon.
