Greetings my friends – I do trust this week has been kind to you!
Today I’d like to impart some of my knowledge of Mother’s Day. A yearly expression of gratitude to the most important woman in your life – be sure to make it the most special of occasions for her, regardless of whether our current situation allows for you to be with her in person!
I have collated some supuurrb suggestions to ensure that you can excel in the gifting department, forget about the old, and frankly tired, card and bunch of flowers – this year why not do Mothering Sunday the Curious Cat way!
THE PUURRFECT BOTTLE GIFT
Gin is not traditionally known as “mother’s ruin” for no reason – for centuries it was the go-to tipple for many a lady, especially for the ones minding children! So, for Mother’s Day this year why not treat her to a bottle of one of my wonderful gins? I can also ensure delivery to her door (or to you directly, if you are fortunate enough to be able to present yourself in person bearing presents) and arrange for a thoughtful gift message adorning the neck of the bottle with ribbon. All you need to do is let me know what you want to say and we will do the rest!
QUEEN OF HEARTS
What better way to show how dear your mother is to you then gifting her with a bottle of my delicious pink gin, bursting with fresh strawberries? My Queen Of Hearts is is fresh Pink Gin which combines botanicals such as strawberry and kaffir lime leaves, thus creating a morish, bittersweet symphony!
Forget a boring flower arrangement – this floral delight will really brighten up her Mothering Sunday! My Palma Violet flavoured gin is a bright, luminous, floral artisan spirit. I balance fresh, floral notes with the crisp tang of juniper to create a beautifully complex finish.
What do you get the special lady in your life that has everything? A bottle of colour changing berry gin, of course! My limited edition Wonderland gin is packed full of fresh berries flavour. Behold the magic when it is served over ice and combined with any mixer of your choice – this very special colour changing gin will transform from blue to pink before her very eyes!
On making your heartfelt purchase you can also conveniently add a gift box to your order at checkout, thus elevating that bottle delivery with beautiful, luxury gift packaging! Please note… my Wonderland gin already comes in a gift box as standard.
Struggling to decipher which of my collection of gin would be her favourite tipple? Well, fear not my dear friend, I’ve got it covered! Take a look at my delightful tasting sets for my Flavoured and London Dry collections. We have options such as the ever popular 5x5cl London Dry Tasting Set (we also stock a 5x20cl London Dry Tasting Set for superior spoiling!) and 6x5cl Flavoured Tasting Set (and again, it’s comes in the much larger 6x20cl variety too!)
SHOW OFF YOUR MIXOLOGY SKILLS WITH AN IMPROMTU COCKTAIL SESSION
If you are able to pay a visit to your mum in person, why not bring her the gift of masterful mixology? We have created an eclectic selection of amazing, easy to make cocktail recipes to suit any taste! Why not stock up on the ingredients required in advance and arrive ready to craft delicious cocktails this Mothering Sunday?
I strongly recommend our Royal Spritz, The Flying Violet and, of course, a simple G & T made with my Wonderland Gin – delicious and also with the extra wow factor when served!
GIVE HER SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO…
Even if you are unable to meet in person this Mother’s Day or the foreseeable future, you can always enjoy an evening together gin tasting! I can arrange for a Private Virtual Gin Tasting Session for your family to reunite under the expert guidance of our resident mixologist Pedro at a time and date to suit you. Wherever your kin may be located presently it gives the opportunity for a fantastic evening together.
We also have another of our extremely popular Open Virtual Gin Tasting Sessions taking place on the 26th March. Why not treat your mother and yourself to a ticket? Our February event was a riotous success so I foresee places snapping up very quickly indeed, don’t dally if this idea proves irresistible!
GO BIG OR GO HOME!
For the ultimate gin based gift why not treat your dear mother with a membership to my friend Mad Hatter’s simply gin-credible Bizarre Lounge? His bi-monthly gin concierge service is an unparalleled gift and one that will be throghourly enjoyed throughout the year!
So, to surmise, be sure to make this years Mothering Sunday a very special one and please do make sure that you arrange your gift in good time to avoid disappointment. Remember, Mothering Sunday is next weekend (Sunday, 14th March) and I can personally guarantee delivery of any orders made before midnight Tuesday 9th March. In the words of my friend White Rabbit, “Don’t be late!”
Until next time my dear friends…
