What Kinds Of Items Can Your Luxury Gin Basket Gift Include?

gin gifts

Liquor: Send Gin Gift

Allow your giftee to indulge in their passion with our tasting notes that can come along with your gin gift set. Our notes on the gin included provide an interesting exploration for your giftee into the history of gin, its makers, the distilling process, and everything that makes gin the delectable drink it is. 

For example gin is derived from the French word ‘genievre’ or juniper, and this clear spirit thrives on the dominance of a complex combination of juniper, flowers, and fruit. 

Because of the incredible variety of gins available, you also get to experience a wide variety of flavors. Gin flavor profiles also vary from where it is produced: American gin and English gin, which have more juniper notes, and Netherlands gin, which is more malty and full-bodied. Can’t choose? Try our mini gin bottle gift sets!

Fresh Fruits And Vegetables For Your Gin Gift Basket

You can complement your gin gift basket with seasonal and fresh fruits and vegetables. We source organic fruits and vegetables to ensure that any gin cocktails made from the gin basket would enhance its complex flavors. 

You can use strawberries to make a strawberry gin cocktail. Fruits can be the base for flavored gin or fruit-infused gin cocktails.

Fresh Herbs And Spices For Your Gin Gift Hamper

Gin, by its very nature, packs in the notes of juniper. But the botanicals that can be added to gin vary widely. 

Rosemary has a strong scent that can make it a perfect ingredient in gin, both dry, and as a cocktail. 

We can include fresh herbs and spices to impart maximum flavor and echo the ingredients of your drink both aromatically and visually.

Citrus Notes for Gin-Based Cocktail Presents

Gin is the main ingredient in many classic cocktails such as Gin Martini, Negroni, and French 75. The classic way to have gin is the Gin and Tonic, better known as G&T. 

Citrus is the most common note you can find in gin, apart from juniper. 

Juniper has a bitter profile and citrus helps to lift flavors. We can add lemon, orange, bergamot to the gin gift basket.

Sweeteners For Your Fancy Gin Gift

Sweeteners in a drink help smoothen the rough edges from alcohol, while adding texture and body. Sweeteners are an essential component to a properly balanced alcohol drink. 

If a drink does not get its sweetness from an alcohol ingredient, it usually gets it from a syrup. 

For our gin drink gifts, we use syrups that are free from artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, and sweeteners.

Bitters For Your Gin Gift Pack

For a drink that is as clear and straightforward as gin, the addition of bitters can enhance or even change the flavor, aroma, and appearance of gin cocktails dramatically.  

For example a gin sour features classic Angostura bitters that act to expose more flavors that are hidden. 

With just gin as the base and lemon juice, simple syrup, and bitters, you can create a number of refreshing cocktails.

Gin Botanical Gifts Garnishes

The possibilities of playing around with gin are endless. Some of the most common botanicals used in most gins are: 

  • Coriander
  • Angelica
  • Orris root
  • Citrus peels

To this, you can also consider roots, herbs, plants, fruits, and peels to create delectable and varied gin flavor profiles.

Ice For Your Cool Gin Set Gifts

If you are going to have gin on the rocks, we recommend that you use large ice cubes. We use large ice trays that create ice that melts slowly, ensuring that the drink doesn’t get diluted rapidly. 

Once the ice starts to melt, this not only cools the gin, but also starts to bring out all the flavors. 

We make sure to keep the cool in your gin cocktail gift with our large cube ice.

Glassware For Your Gin Gift Set Canada

Good gin glasses can enhance the gin drinking experience. The Copa glass or the balloon glass is the perfect glass for a gin and tonic. The small opening of this glass traps the exquisite aromas of the gin while the bigger base allows for the lime and ice to settle down and enhance the flavor. Copa glasses are good to complement with a gin tonic gift set. 

For martinis or specialist drinks, the highball is the glassware of choice for your gin gift set, if you ask our mixologists. Highball glasses are tall and narrow and allow for more visual appeal to the drink. 

A tulip glass, commonly used in champagne or wines, is also great for gin tasting. 

You can complement your gin gift set with the right glassware to make it a perfect gift. 

In fact, a pink gin gift set with glass is one of our most popular gin gifts.

Gin Gift Box Tools 

At 180 Drinks, we can also provide high quality professional barware for your gin gifts. Our curated set of bar tools are selected for building drinks with the best practices in mind. 

Each gin gift illustrates both the art and science of how the tools and ingredients work together to help create high quality drinks. Some of the more common bar tools are:

  • Cocktail Shaker
  • Jigger
  • Citrus Press
  • Peeler
  • Muddler
  • Strainer
professional mixology class tools

Cool Gin Gifts: Recipes and Instructional Videos

Each gin gift features easy to follow recipe cards and an instructional video that guide you through the drink building process. 

Our recipes and instructional videos will help you learn the fundamental skills and give you the knowledge to create tasty, well-balanced drinks. 

Gin And Chocolate Gift Set

What’s a gift without nibbles or treats? Gin and chocolate gifts may not seem like the perfect pairing, but you would be surprised! The botanical notes in gin can meld very well with the basic rich and creamy notes of chocolate.

White chocolate pairs well with most gins. Stronger gins work with dark chocolates, complementing each other perfectly. 

You can always add chocolates to your gin delivery gift at the time of ordering. We will make sure the gin you choose ships with the right chocolates for your hamper!
