Edinburgh Gin apple and spice liqueur: 5/5

Spice brings comforting warmth and aroma to this quality gin – and the tangy, juicy apple addition may even change your mind if you usually find liqueurs too sweet.

It’s fresh and clean on the palate, with a hug of festive cinnamon to finish. Mix with ice and soda and garnish with slices of apple for a cool hi-ball tumbler.

Bread flavours overlay the whiskey and double cream

A cream liqueur with scents that are reminiscent of traditional markets. Spiced ginger- bread flavours overlay the whiskey and double cream.

Strong aromas and a spicy finish mean this is perfect with coffee and would be great in a boozy version of gingerbread latte. Just top with some squirty cream.

Christmas pudding liqueur: 5/5

Punchy liqueur with lots of honeyed raisin, clove and cinnamon stick tastes. There is a delicious tang of lemon on the long finish, which lifts the flavours from being too intense.

This has all the smells and tastes of your childhood stocking favourites – fudge, honeycomb and a selection box, plus the adult addition of a kick of juniper.
