Dry January with a Twist (of lemon)

Dry January

2024 The Start of a New Year. But of course this also brings with it the dreaded new year resolutions. We all make them and then work hard not to break them!

Dry January is a good concept and if followed to the letter allows our bodies and minds to recuperate and give our livers a fighting chance. However, even if you have embraced Dry January, all fun is not lost.

Probably the most common resolution is to abandon all the over-indulgence and hedonistic excesses of Christmas and go for a Dry January i.e. no booze!!!! Don't forget though, we might be over Christmas now the decorations are down, but there are some poor unfortunates who have their birthday in a dry month. Perhaps a non alcoholic gift ticks all boxes.

Nowadays there are alternatives, and some really lovely ones. We have researched alternative alcohol free options and are delighted to say that alcohol free no longer means boring. Not only is there plenty of alcohol free choices in the market, but equally important, the quality of these alcohol free spirits is increasing exponentially. Some of the top names in alcohol free gins are from these well known brands, Gordon’s, Tanqueray and Whitley Neill and perhaps some slightly less well known, Clean Co Gin & Seedlip

For authentic taste, our favourite is the Tanqueray alcohol free gin, but for its rhubarb flavour, sheer beauty of the bottle and how it looks in our gift hampers, we just love Clean Co Gin.

Now you can party without guilt. Non alcohol gins have been on our radar for a while, but coming up on the inside and giving them a ‘rum’ for their money are non alcoholic rums, so everyone can enjoy their favourite tipple, even non alcoholic tequila! And also, to our mind, one of the greatest gifts is an alcohol-free prosecco, so that when you need to celebrate with style (even in dry January), you can celebrate with bubbles and keep the party buzzing.

So let’s pour ourselves a glass (or two – who cares? It’s alcohol free!!) and clink and raise a toast to each and every one of us. Be proud we passed the dry January test, and that hurrah, February is on the way!

If you would like to peruse our alcohol free gift range, take a look here. Perfect for the gin fan who is working hard on their fitness this January, baby showers, new mum gifts and happy birthdays with wellbeing in mind.
