18 treats every gin lover needs to stay cosy this autumn & winter

With the arrival of autumn, the newly dark mornings and chilly mists see us diving under the duvet in an attempt to stay snuggled up in hibernation until the sun decides to emerge. But fear not - autumn can be a glorious time, of bonfires, woodland walks and - of course - our favourite hot gin cocktails! So how can we make the most of the colder, wetter months? By introducing a touch of ‘hygge’ to the home!

Here are a few of our favourite gin gifts - or ways to treat yourself - to make sure you stay warm, cosy and wrapped in gin all autumn and winter long!


CANDLES

Nothing creates a cosy atmosphere better than the warm glow from a flickering candle - particularly when it fills your home with the gently delicious aroma of… gin!
