Candy Cane Christmas Gin

Forget Mulled Wine, Sherry or Eggnog this Christmas. This year, we’ll be enjoying a Christmas Gin and Tonic - a Candy Cane Christmas Gin to be exact.

Gin is an all year round favourite of ours and Christmas is no different.

The Candy Cane Christmas Gin is sweet on the palate, with a subtle juniper resin leading to a warmer, rich minty character with hints of light, berry fruits.

Using peppermint for flavour, and bilberry and hibiscus for colour, our distillers have taken the art of gin to one universal symbol of Christmas Gin

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a Candy Cane (Gin) or two. With our adult version,  this childhood favourite will be the talk of the party.

Candy Cane Christmas Gin is a special edition gin just for Christmas.

This 70cl bottle is perfect for Christmas parties, social gatherings or festive drinks with loved ones throughout the season. 

Best served from a Tulip Gin Glass.

THE PERFECT GIFT FOR A GIN LOVER

Once again our distillers have been experimenting for Christmas throughout 2018 to develop and improve the recipe of Candy Cane Gin, which has previously featured in our 12 Gins of Christmas Gift Set and also our Christmas Gin Crackers, in a 5cl bottle.

This bottle of Candy Cane Christmas Gin is the perfect gift for a gin lover and is a thoughtful present to give your wife, husband, girlfriend, boyfriends or mum and dad. Because of its eye-catching look and it's sensational taste it is ideal to give as a Christmas gift.

THE HISTORY OF CANDY CANE

As folklore would have it, the Candy Cane originated in Cologne in the late 1600's. Legend says a choirmaster had created then white sugar sticks for the Children at church so they did not disrupt the Christmas choirs.

Because of the shepherds in the Nativity story, the choirmaster bent the candy sticks into canes to represent the shepherd's crook. The cane-shaped candy sticks became a tradition at the church. Their popularity eventually spread to other areas throughout Europe. 

In 1847, a German-Swedish immigrant whose name was August Imgard of Wooster, Ohio, decorated a small blue spruce with paper ornaments and candy canes. It wasn't until the turn of the century that the red and white stripes and peppermint flavours became the norm.
