An Edinburgh-based drinks company has launched what could be this festive season's hottest gift for gin fans - the world’s first 'Yard of Gin'.

Delivered in a gold-foiled gift box, the team at Tipple Box say the Yard of Gin features 12 gins and liqueurs hand-selected from distilleries across the UK, including Scottish gins Edinburgh Gin, Rock Rose and Boe.

Described as a “carefully curated collection” of flavoured, dry and pink gins as well as several fruit liqueurs, the Yard of Gin is designed to allow any gin lover to fully explore and enjoy the wonderful world of gin.
