    Gin’s always a great present because it works for newbies to gin and for seasoned gin lovers with the subscription idea. A beautiful bottle (and equally beautiful liquid!) can be a great present for a newbie to give them the opportunity to test how they like their gin, and give them the opportunity to experiment at home before they go and spend at lot in a bar!
