Edinburgh Gin has released five different Storybook gift packs, each paying tribute to a piece of classic literature. To add even more holiday cheer to the occasion, the Ian Macleod Distillers-owned brand has concealed a first edition of George Orwell’s 1984 worth up to $2,600 in one of the sets.
Released to coincide with the coming holidays, the limited edition Edinburgh Gin Storybook gift packs have been themed around famous books with spirited plays on their names. The five sets comprise: Journey to the Centre of the Serve, Olive or Twist, Paradise Found, The Winter’s Cocktail, and A Tale of Two Flavours.
Each beautiful gift pack contains various products from Edinburgh Gin’s vast portfolio, including London Dry bottling, flavored expressions and liqueurs. On top of that, they also come with cocktail making equipment.
One of the sets will have an original, first edition book. The recipient of the gift pack will be able to choose from a selection of titles including George Orwell’s 1984 and The Savoy Cocktail Book by Harry Craddock.
“Inspired by our hometown of Edinburgh’s influence on writers the world over, our ‘first edition’ Edinburgh Gin Storybooks would look at home on any bookshelf, nestled among the classics,” said Neil Mowat, UK marketing director of Ian Macleod Distillers. “Which is why, to celebrate their limited release, we secretly added one more extraordinary title to our range. Our golden ticket winner will get the special opportunity to choose an original, first edition book to savour over our range of award-winning gins.”
The Edinburgh Gin Storybook gift packs are available to buy in the United Kingdotm from John Lewis, Selfridges, and other specialist retailers, as well as online at the Edinburgh Gin official website. Each set is priced between £35-£65 ($45-$84 USD). Beginning November2 , the Storybooks can be purchased from Amazon and Moonpig.
Edinburgh Gin has also released a variety of holiday oriented spirits ahead of the season, including a Christmas Gin and a Poached Pear Gin Liqueur.
