Plymouth Gin

Plymouth Gin

Best for: The Martini-sipping dad who thinks he's James Bond

Since its inception in 1793, Plymouth has been one of the finest and smoothest gins you can buy thanks to its citrus-forward notes and British craftsmanship. Now the company has stepped up their game once more with innovative packaging. As they say:

"The Plymouth Gin bottle was recently reimagined to ensure it is produced in the most considered way. While retaining its iconic bottle shape, it is now 100% recyclable, has a reduced weight, and all single-use plastic packaging has been removed."

If you're feeling extra generous, throw in a fancy Martini gift set such as the stunning gold mixology kit from Williams Sonoma.
