TORONTO, November 24, 2020 – There is one gift that works for the person who has everything, the one who is impossible to buy for, a friend, distant family member, office secret Santa or almost anyone else on your list — wine and spirits.
A bottle of their favourite drink always fits, and the colour is never wrong.
When putting together your Nice List this holiday season (heck, even your Naughty List, for that matter!), Corby Spirit and Wine suggests some of the following ideas to stuff a stocking or stash under the tree:
- Personalized Bottle — For the lover of Canadian whisky on your list, have a bottle of J.P. Wiser’s award-winning 15 Year Old whisky engraved with a personalized message on the bottle.
- Fine Scotch — With a brand nearly 200 years old, The Glenlivet is a pioneer that defined the Speyside style of whisky. Today, it is redefining whisky culture and inviting people to discover the many sides of single malt Scotch. Check getrunner.io for special Glenlivet promotions this season, including waiving delivery and markup fees in the Greater Toronto Area in December.
- Ontario Wine — The importance of supporting local businesses has been driven home during the pandemic that has dominated most of 2020. Ontario VQA wines make a great gift, and support an important Ontario industry. The Foreign Affair Winery is offering four special gift packs this Holiday season: Bubbles & Kisses featuring a 2019 sparkling rosé and Snowflake Baci chocolates, Dream Dinner pairing a bottle of 2017 Dream with Alessia Truffle Risotto, a Pasta Duo Gift Set with Cabernet Sauvignon, Pesto Alla Genovese and Sicilian Cherry Tomato Sauce and Appassimento & Antipasto, with a sneak peek at the 2017 L’Eredita Cabernet Franc with assorted antipasto board offerings and a branded black walnut serving board.
- New Releases — Break from the ordinary and gift something that is new to the market. Jameson Cold Brew is a new take on the classic combination of coffee and Irish whiskey. Give your gin game a boost with Beefeater Blood Orange gin, a bright-tasting new flavour made for those who enjoy those rooftop spritz afternoons. Or take the complexity out of mixology with pre-mixed Manhattan or Old Fashioned Cocktails.
