Gin is fast becoming one of the UK’s most popular drinks. If you’re looking to countdown to Christmas in style, then what better way than with a Gin advent cracker? We were kindly sent First4Hampers Gin flavoured advent cracker to review.
Here is what Mandy thought:
‘I’m a big Gin fan and love trying out new flavours, so I couldn’t wait to get cracked in to this cracker. The design is very impressive, it looks exactly like a cracker except a whole lot bigger, with beautiful red ribbon around each end and big bold red numbers on each day of December. To my surprise the cracker was quite lights to hold as I’d expected it to be heavy.
Opening up the first door you are greeted with a 50cl bottle Malfy’s Original Gin, obviously I had to taste so adding in a dash of tonic I found this was so refreshing and a good all round gin, I couldn’t wait to open up each door to see what flavour would be next. Each day had a different gin or gin liqueur to try, some of which I had never tried such as 6 O’clock Damson Gin and one my new favourites, Poetic License Picnic Gin Strawberries and Cream.
A few of my favourites were also included which I was more than happy to drink again this included: Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueur and Malfy Sicilian Pink Grapefruit Gin. One of the best features of this cracker is all of the gins are suitable for vegetarians and vegans which is a big plus for me since I’m a vegetarian!
Overall I absolutely loved the Flavoured Gin Advent Cracker. The design, the flavours, everything about it, is the ideal way to countdown to the most wonderful time of the year. I can’t recommend this highly enough especially you’re a gin drinker or if you’re new to gin, then this is the perfect way to find out which flavours of gin you like best before buying a bigger bottle.”
