The countdown to Christmas has officially started and if we can’t go to the pub this year, you’ll be needing to keep your home bar well stocked.
To get you in the Christmas spirit (literally), we’ve rounded up the best festive drinks you can buy in the UK.
From mulled gin to a three kings themed cocktail kit, here’s our pick of the best festive tipples for 2020.
Shellys Drinks Mulled Gin
Shellys Drinks is great at gin. We love her variety of flavours such as Raspberry Ripple, Manchester Tart and Fig Vanilla & Cardamon.
But as it’s christmas, why not give one of her festive tipples a go.
Her Mulled Gin is a delightful blend of London Dry Gin with apple juice, cinnamon, orange, cloves, nutmeg and star anise. The perfect winter warmer.

Finders Christmas Pudding Spiced Rum
It’s not Christmas without figgy pudding, but if you’re not a fan of the dessert, here it is in alcohol form.
Yorkshire craft distillery Finders Spirits has created the UK’s first Christmas Pudding Spiced Rum – with no stodge, but all the booze.
The limited-edition festive oak-aged rum is spiced with cinnamon, orange and muscovado. It’s basically Christmas in a glass.

Jägermeister Cold Brew
Most of us like a Jägermeister, but did you know they also do a festive-themed Jägermeister Cold Brew?
It’s a mix of Jagermeister liquor infused with coffee and dark chocolate and is pretty yum. Drink it neat or use it in a cocktail.
Jägermeister recommends making a P.S I Love J cocktail. Mix 40ml Jägermeister Cold brew, 25ml Baileys, 12.5ml Amaretto, 50ml Half & Half (milk & cream) and garnish with chocolate sauce.
