What are the best gins to give this Christmas? Look no further than the selection we've pulled out for you here. Whether you're after something that taste festive, looks it, or just has a good Winter feel about it, we've got the best craft gin that your family and friends will love. And they're all from independent distilleries, right here, in the UK.

Let's kick things off with the Christmas tree. Almost literally. Twisting Spirits, with their trade mark beautiful bottles, have created Douglas-Fir Distilled Gin. Using what is essentially Christmas tree needles as a botanical gives things a fresh flavour. And, you know, it got 3 stars at the Great Taste Awards. Not too shabby.

Gin not the right spirit? Try the winter warming Rosemullion Gold Rum from Helford in South Cornwall. It's light gold rum, aged in charred American white oak to make it a perfect light, sipping rum.

Back on the Christmas flavours, we've got Cranberry & Gin from Anno Distillers in Kent. Originally, this was a Christmas limited edition release, but we've got it all year round. Seasonal spices of orange, cassia and cloves add spice to the fruitiness of the cranberry. Serve either with sparkling wine for a festive fizz, or with vermouth for a Christmas martini.

Finally, when you're looking for presents, you can't ignore the beauty of the bottle. And none come prettier than the Artist Edition from Kinrara. Featuring "Struan the stag" by Scottish artist, Kat Baxter, only 2000 bottles were made, with each one individually numbered and signed. The gin itself is Kinrara's brilliant Highland dry gin, which features citrus flavours and botanicals including rosehip and rowan berries foraged from the estate itself.
