The recipient then follows the redemption instructions on the voucher to begin their subscription

Gift Subscriptions What does my gift recipient get?

Once your recipient redeems their gift, each month they will receive a beautiful bespoke presentation box, with three custom-designed glass bottles containing hand-selected gin.

Our team of gin sommeliers create tasting notes each month which accompany each box, so your recipient can understand and appreciate the botanicals, taste and flavours each gin has to offer.

Your recipient will also receive a beautiful tasting journal with their first delivery, so they can make notes + track their gin adventure.
