Heather Rose Gin with its combination of rose and heather has what Strathearn describe as a ‘prosecco character’.

Light, fruity and deliciously fragrant with hints, this gin is as perfectly at home in a highball with tonic – in which he colour of the gin changes to a delicate pink – as it is in a chilled Champagne flute with no slice.

Rock Rose Gin, £34

Not only does Rock Rose Gin look appealing in its porcelain decanter, but the Rock Rose – the botanical it’s named after – is famed for its confirmed health benefits and was once sought after by the Vikings for its strength and vitality. Incorporating rowan berries and blaeberries, gives it a lovely sweetness and creaminess that will have your mother cooking your favourite meal in gratitude in no time.
