Gin Is The Drink Of Choice This Season So Here's A Bunch Of Gin-Related Stuff You Can Buy
Do you like gin? Do you like gin-related paraphernalia? Well then, you've come to the right place.
In case you've been living under a rock somewhere, you would no doubt realise that gin is the drink de jour of 2018.
Or, if you're Queen Elizabeth, it's basically been the drink de jour FOREVER. Do you know she enjoys a gin cocktail not once but twice a day?
But we're not talking about plain old boring bottles of gin -- we're talking about kitschy adult treats that incorporate everyone's favourite boozy beverage.
We're talking about things like gin-filled Christmas baubles and chocolate and gin mash-ups.
OK, stop drooling because and start scrolling and preparing to stockpile these beauties.
These tiny, gin-filled baubles are perfect for hanging on the Christmas tree -- or anywhere, for that matter.
The people behind them, Gingle Bells Gin, have also cleverly come up with a whole stack of flavours, including Chrysanthenum, Butterfly Pea Flower and Hibiscus.
The absolute BEST part about them is that once you've finished drinking them you can pop them back on the tree and no one will be any wiser.
You can pick up a pack of six for $79 from the Gingle Bells website.
Anyone who knows anything about gin knows about Beefeater. It's a classic London-made gin and had been around for forever.
Well now the brains behind the gin -- namely the company's master distiller, Desmond Payne MBE, have gone an created a brand new flavour with their PINK edition.
Apart from looking so darn cute -- the gin is also a little sweeter than the original boasting a soft fruit and strawberry taste. Umm, yum.
You can pick up a bottle for $57.99 at leading retailers.
The limited edition creations were brewed up in partnership with the Melbourne Gin Company, and feature the iconic KitKat wafers smothered in luscious, gin-infused premium milk chocolate.
Keep your eye -- or tongue -- out for refreshing botanical notes reminiscent of London Dry Gin such as citrus, coriander seeds and rosemary, intermingled with Australian natives for a unique Melbourne twist.
You can only grab these from the KitKat Chocolatory in Melbourne.
Demeter 'Gin & Tonic' Perfume
If you don't already know about the super quirky and super fun perfume house Demeter then you need to get on this.
The brand are known for creating single scent perfumes which are inspired by everyday things -- such as rain and dirt. Fun fact: Apparently Clint Eastwood is a mad fan of the dirt scent.
The scent has more of a fresh citrus zing to it than a kind of heady gin scent -- but it's still wonderfully reminiscent of all those delicious G&T's we're bound to guzzle over summer.
You can pick up a bottle for $17.95 here.
Tower Mistletoe & Myrrh Irish Gin
Like actual Christmas in a bottle. Described by 10 daily's contributing lifestyle editor as "lovely, really lovely", this gin can hold its own with just a dash of tonic and a slice of orange.
It's a limited edition craft gin, so you better get in quick, because as it's only being sold at Aldi you just know it's gonna walk off the shelves.
Pick one up from Aldi for $44.99.

O.P.I 'I'll Have A Gin & Tectonic' Nail Lacquer
