Alexander and James does Christmas drinks gifting

Unsure what to get your loved one this festive period?  Well everyone enjoys receiving a bottle of good stuff, so why not treat them to the very best you can get in a bottle.  Alexander and James have already done the hard work for you and selected the best premium spirits so all you have to do is pick between their lovely selection.

I road tested the online shop, and found the whole experience very easy to use, and quick.  Whilst I am a fan of rum and whiskey, I thought really fancied a change and wanted to try a tequila.  However, not knowing that much about the Mexican spirit I wasnt so sure where to start.  At Alexander and James they have a passion for finding the worlds finest spirits and drinking accessories, so alongside each bottle you will find cocktail ideas, serving suggestions and all backed up by the expertise of Diageo, the worlds leading spirits company.

I went for Don Julio Anejo Tequila, and made it the classic way.  Tequila can sometimes get a bad name as just a shot with some salt and lemon. However the best way to drink it is with some ice and a good squeeze of fresh lime juice.  Very refreshing, and just the right amount of kick.  If you want to buy the same tequila click here.

Oh course if you want to try something else Alexander and James has other  best-in-class brands like Zacapa, Grand Marnier, Tanqueray and Cîroc. You’ll also find an enviable assortment of newly released Johnnie Walker whiskies and limited edition single malts.

So time to throw away the wrapping paper and unwanted presents. This year get someone a present they really want, and you never know maybe they will share a tipple with you (well it is the time for giving and receiving).
