A Irish bauble gift set exists that all gin-lovers will want

A Irish bauble gift set exists that all gin-lovers will want

When it comes to buying Christmas presents, it’s safe to say that gift sets can get a bad rap; there can be a lot of ‘extras’ added in that can detract from the main event, so to speak. Does anyone use all of the excess body lotion that comes with each perfume set, for example? I like the idea of matching items, but more often then not, I find myself leaving the added items aside. And because of this, I fear many family and friends will do the same, thus depleting the full amount of happiness that comes along with giving a Christmas gift.

With that in mind and because Aldi’s wine advent calendar proved so popular, if you know of a person who is partial to a love of gin, this Irish gift set is sure to go down a treat – and you can pretty much guarantee that no part of the set will be forgotten about.

Ha’penny spirits, the  hand-crafted, small batch distilled spirits range have launched of a new limited edition Ha’penny Gin Bauble Christmas Set.

Inspired by Dublin’s iconic Ha’penny Bridge, the range celebrates one of Ireland’s most identifiable symbols and the Victorian era in which it was built, as seen in the choice of botanicals used for both the Dublin Dry and Rhubarb gin within the range.

The exclusive festive set features two Ha’penny Dublin Dry Gin Christmas Baubles, two Ha’penny Rhubarb baubles and a signature Ha’penny Gin glass. This limited edition set is a must for gin-enthusiasts and Christmas fans – you can even hang the bauble on your tree.

The set is available now in Supervalu, Tesco, Dunnes Stores, the Celtic Whiskey Shop and select independent off-licenses around the country, for €29.99.
