What to buy a whisky drinker for Christmas

Missed black Friday? Stressing about the fact we’re already in December and you’ve still got gifts to buy?   

There’s no need to panic.

Nor do you need to resort to a gift that lacks originality and thought (bottle bags, we’re looking at you!).

If you’re searching for a great present for the whisky drinker in your life, help is at hand – thanks to the inspired selection of whisky gifts from the Whisky Tasting Company.


Three great gifts for whisky lovers

Okay, so in fairness, bottle bags don’t deserve such a bad press. A bottle of whisky will always be well received – it’s just not very exciting, is it?

We aim to change that.

With the Whisky Tasting Company, you can still give the gift of their much-loved malt, but with a little extra Christmas sparkle…


A whisky gift set

Top of any discerning Christmas shopping list should be our three-bottle or five-bottle whisky miniature gift sets. 

A thoughtful present for any whisky drinker, our gift sets offer a unique way to experiment with different whisky varieties and flavours.

Perfect for Secret Santa, our three-bottle single malt whisky gift set is just £18.95 – but with everything from Welsh whiskies and world whiskies to premium sets containing old and rare bottles, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

What’s inside the box?

All our sets come beautifully presented in a luxury gift box (which can be personalised with your own festive message).

Inside you’ll find individual tasting cards providing educational and interesting facts about the flavours to look out for, including the distilleries, whisky makers, and regions.

Each set also comes with a luxury whisky tasting mat printed with a distillery image or picturesque shot of the Scottish landscape – making these gifts much more than just another bottle of whisky.


A drinks card

Send seasonal greetings that will really stand out this year with a drinks card from Message in a Bottle.

Psst, we’ll let you in on a secret. Whilst at Whisky Tasting Company, we’re all about whisky, these Christmas cards are also available with other spirits – like rum, brandy, gin, or vodka – meaning you could use the gifting idea for all the family.

At just £8.99, they’re great for stocking fillers, Secret Santas, or table gifts.  

What’s inside the box?

From the outside, Christmas drink cards look like a traditional Christmas card, but open them up and you’ll find a single malt miniature whisky bottle (or spirit of your choice), a tasting card, and your personalised message.

What better way to spread festive joy?


A whisky subscription

Explore the world of whisky in style and show someone special just how much you care with our award-winning subscription sets.

Voted ‘Best whisky gift subscription’ by the Independent in 2021, these luxury sets are ideal if you want to really spoil someone this Christmas.

Choose a three-box subscription and we’ll send out a new five-bottle tasting set every three months, containing a selection of single malt and artisan whiskies, tasting cards, and a tasting mat.

Or if you want to really push the boat out with a present that will be enjoyed throughout 2024, go for one of our one-year subscription sets.

What’s inside the box?

As with our whisky gift sets, the first subscription delivery will be beautifully presented in a handmade gift box, which can be personalised with your own words. Subsequent deliveries will still be attractively presented, but in our standard brown packaging.

Every set received will contain five new miniature malts to sample and enjoy, accompanied by tasting cards and a new tasting mat.
