The Lakes Gin Explorer Edition
One of our favourite gins from one of our favourite distilleries, and the only one, to our knowledge, that has travelled to the North Pole!
Initially launched in the Summer of 2016 as a limited edition by The Lakes Distillery, the original 2,200 bottles sold out so rapidly and caused such a sensation that the decision was made to bring The Lakes Gin Explorer Edition into the family permanently. Created using a selection of 15 botanicals, including five that are native to The Lake District (including the Cumbrian juniper) and with a bumped up ABV of 47.1%, this is a truly remarkable sipping gin that is a leader in the Super Premium range. Find our tasting notes here.

Arran Machrie Moor Single Malt Eighth Edition
Named after the mystical peat bog on the Isle of Arran, where the legendary warrior giant Fingal is said to have tethered his favourite dog, Bran, to a Bronze Age stone circle, this is truly a rare beast of a malt. Isle of Arran Distillers produces one small batch of Machrie Moor Single Malt every autumn, with each edition offering a unique twist on the trademark expression. This year’s has a clean palate with citric resonance, rich spice and a hint of peat. Tropical fruits come through strongly on the nose against a pleasant background peat reek. The finish is crisp with swirling smoke, toasted vanilla and lingering guava.
Give your dad the gift of a legend for only £44.14.
Isle of Harris Gin Serve+
A beautifully presented and unusual gin that uniquely belongs to its namesake. This Isle of Harris Gin has been infused with hand-harvested sugar kelp, local to the island, bringing a sugary but green, gently herbal quality to the expression. Initially soft and sweet, a fresh pine develops, pleasantly heated by a light, warming spice that lingers on.
The distillers recommend that you this versatile gin “on the rocks”, adding a few drops of their Sugar Kelp Aromatic Water and a piece of pink or red grapefruit or simply a wedge of fresh lime to garnish. However, this also works wonders in a classic G&T with a good tonic (such as Fever-Tree).
The Harris Serve+ includes a 70cl bottle of Harris Gin, a 50ml bottle of Sugar Kelp Aromatic Water and two specially designed, lowball tumblers with a tactile rippling contour effect, making it ideal to share with your dad.
The price of the Harris Serve+ set can be bought for £82. A bottle of Isle of Harris Gin can be purchased for £37. Click here or on the image below to be redirected to the online store.

If you’re an active type, you’ve no doubt heard of Tough Mudder – the obstacle course that makes the Glastonbury Festival mud-fest look like a pristine hotel lobby. Why not test your old man’s endurance with this fun and energising gift that is sure to be a day to remember (especially if you join him in this challenging yet fun bonding experience)?

Tough Mudder Full is a 10-12-mile mud and obstacle course designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit. With no podiums, winners, or clocks to race against, it’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line. Rather, it’s a challenge that emphasises teamwork, camaraderie, and accomplishing something almost as tough as you are.
Tough Mudder Half is a fun, 5-mile run specifically designed to test your teamwork and toughness. And most of all, it’s FUN. With the help of your fellow Mudders, you’ll overcome mud-drenched obstacles and adrenaline-pumping challenges. And you’ll do it all while having the most fun you’ve had in recent memory. That finish line pint never tasted to sweet.
Toughest Mudder is an 8-hour obstacle course that takes teamwork, stamina, and mental grit to the extreme – all between the hours of midnight and 8AM. Toughest Mudder is the ultimate challenge for Mudders insane enough to push themselves beyond anything they’ve ever experienced.
