Here are a few ideas for gifts for this Valentine’s day, which are bound to be a win…


1. Award-Winning Gin (from the Portsmouth Distillery of course)
Fort Gin & Tudor Gin created by The Portsmouth Distillery (that’s us…)

From our classic Portsmouth Dry Gin – Fort Gin, rich in flavour and perfect in a G&T with lime, through to Tudor Gin – a fine gin created using botanicals found on the wreck of Henry VIII’s Flagship, Mary Rose. Both gins as exquisite as the other, they are bound to make amazing gifts for your loved one. Want to ‘snazz’ it up a bit? Check out our ‘Mix with Dich’ series across social media – with various delicious, and easy to make, cocktails using our gins. Check out our gins…

2. A bottle of Award-Winning Rum (or rums!!!)
Our range of Rums make delicious gifts, for any rum lovers, choose from a selection of white unaged 1968, a spiced rum – Cinnabar, and our Forum – or buy all 3 for the ultimate gift!

Our award winning Cinnabar Spiced Rum, and 1968 White Rum, are both very popular selections for gifts all year round – both amazing on the rocks, in a cocktail for that special date, or with a mixer! Want to try something unique? Forum is the one… A deliciously refined Rum that’s made like a Gin… making it a fabulous botanical “Garden” Rum. We carefully distil twice with selected botanicals including: Elderflower, Gorse Flower, Sweet Orange Peel, Lime Peel and Coriander. Best served with a light tonic and a squeeze of lime. Check out our rums…
