Absolut Crystal Pinstripe Bottle

They didn't even know this was on their wishlist. Buy one of only 800 crystal bottle or glasses prodcued at the Reijmyre Glassworks in southern Sweden. Handmade in every phase of production. The signature decoration is hand cut by a master cutter, with an individual final touch before each bottle is numbered and signed.

For the: slow sipper

Whisky Stones Set

These stone cubes rock! Buy this for the slow sipper in your life to keep their favourite drink cool. Once frozen the stones keep the drinks at their chillest without dilluting the robust flavors.

For the: Star Wars obsessed

Death Star Ice Sphere Mold

This one's a real ice breaker. Buy your trooper an ice mould so they need not have to go to a galaxy far, far, away to get a cool Death Star shaped cold drink.
