Garland, lights, a tree topper — and ornaments filled with booze?
Now that's one way to get into the Christmas spirit.
U.K.-based Lakes Distillery has answered our Christmas prayers, releasing booze-filled ornaments this season. The best part is they’re already filled with your choice of whisky, vodka or gin.
You can purchase a box of six or single ornaments.
The blended whisky is described as rich and balanced with aromas of “fresh fruits, treacle, light spice and gentle peat-smoke.” All the six-packs are retailed at £29.95 ($38.95 USD) or you can grab a single bauble for £17.95 ($23.35 USD).
The gin pack comes with three different types of gin: the Lakes Gin, the Lakes Sloe Gin (raspberry jam, cinnamon and orange citrus with hints of juniper and coriander) and the Lakes Damson Gin (fresh cherries, ripe plums and juniper berries with hints of spice).
The Lakes Vodka is described as full-bodied and ultra-smooth with hints of wheat. The Lakes Salted Caramel Vodka has a swirl of white chocolate and hints of fire-toasted marshmallows. And the Lakes Espresso Vodka is described as freshly roasted coffee beans with dark chocolate and hints of Madagascan vanilla pods.
To any of these six-packs, you can even add a shot glass. (Smart!) And if you purchase any of the singles, you can also pay a little extra to get them branded or, for the vodka baubles, you can add a vodka Christmas cracker to your order.
For those of us in the U.S., we can purchase any of these gifts on the Whisky Shop. The bad news is the shipping charge runs very high. Also, be aware that it takes about a week or more for it to reach your doorstep.
