This year Christmas is about to literally sparkle because M&S are selling a light-up Christmas gin liqueur that's almost too beautiful to drink. Hot on the heels of last year's tremendously popular clementine gin liqueur snow globes, these bottles are a cut above and come in an additional new flavour.
Available in either clementine or rhubarb, and costing £18, the tasty drink comes complete with flecks of edible 23 carat gold. The bottle itself is beautifully painted with a wintery, Christmassy woodland scene. The real magic is in its base, where some cleverly concealed LED lights add a whole extra dimension of sparkle to the proceedings. Who needs a centre piece and candles when you have this gin on the table?
M&S Product Developer Jenny Rea said (via Good Housekeeping) "For me, the switching on of the Christmas lights is a huge festive moment, and in honour of this Yuletide tradition we are introducing a show stopping, light-up snow globe gin liqueur, complete with edible gold leaf for that extra wow factor."
Honestly, it's like Blackpool Illuminations in a bottle of booze and, if this creation is anything to go by, Christmas 2020 (COVID limitations not withstanding) is likely to be a pretty great one for foodies who favour M&S.
