If your family is anything like mine it’s a must to take a gift to holiday dinner parties, usually that gift is a bottle of wine or some other kind of spirit. We always take a wine gift and/or the gift of their favorite spirit choice. That’s just something we do that’s been brought down through the generations in our families.
Each couple or person usually has their own specific taste. Some like whiskey while others enjoy a good wine. Some even just like collecting the different sized and shaped bottles the wine and spirits come in.
This year, we’ve made a list of our top favorite wine and spirit gifts that we think someone on your list will enjoy.
2014 Wine and Spirit Gifts
Berentzen – A perfect complement of flavors that delivers the scent of crisp fresh-sliced apples followed by a long, warm finish of oak, caramel and vanilla tones. An artfully crafted and carefully matured experience.
View recipes created with Berentzen which are great for get togethers and holiday parties.
Bottles & Wood – These cool tumblers are made from locally sourced liquor, wine, beer, soda and water bottles.
Repurposed wine bottle glasses are available in aqua, amber, olive and green. We provide our hospitality and design clients with custom made products to meet any size, shape or color requirement.
Glassful Wine Package – Glassful is a curated monthly wine subscription and personalized online wine shop designed to make the experience of discovering and purchasing wine as effortless as drinking it.
Unlike other wine clubs that either send a blanket selection or ask users to choose from a few dozen options, Glassful removes the burden of choice for its members and selects for them. That selection is hand-picked by Glassful’s team of wine experts and is heavy on organic, natural, and biodynamic wines from thoughtful producers.
Four Roses Bourbon – Four of the Bourbon recipes have been expertly selected by the Master Distiller at the peak of maturation to create a perfectly balanced small batch Bourbon that offers a mellow symphony of rich, spicy flavors along with sweet, fruity aromas and hints of sweet oak and caramel.
Its finish is soft, smooth and pleasantly long. Best enjoyed straight up, on the rocks, or with a splash.
Crystal Head Vodka – Highest quality peaches and cream corn is distilled four times into a neutral grain gluten-free spirit and blended with pristine water from Newfoundland, Canada. The liquid is then filtered seven times, of which three are through layers of semi precious crystals known as Herkimer diamonds.
Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander wanted to craft a vessel worthy of one of the world’s purest vodkas. A symbol of life, reflecting power and enlightenment, to hold their award-winning white spirit of super natural purity. Crystal Head contains no additives. No glycerol, citrus oils or sugars. Nothing is added to enhance or mask the taste.
Partida Tequila – Every ounce of Partida Tequila begins with a carefully cultivated supply of blue agave. You cannot rush the growth of la piña – the bigger it gets, the more mature the sugars, and the more full, ripe, and flavorful it becomes. They wait 7-10 years.
Partida’s Reposado and Anejo are aged 50% more than required, and like ripe sweet apples, this aging makes for a better taste. Partida Tequila is completely natural with no additives and no coloration.
