Which Tipple Does Your Mum Deserve This Mother’s Day?
It’s that time of year again. The one day of the year that modern society demands we show our Mum exactly how much we appreciate her in the form of a physical gift. And each year many of us dread that weekend halfway through May because we’ve already given our beloved Mum every soap, bath bomb, hair treatment, fancy designer RayBan glasses and candle under the sun.
But instead of opting for the old humdrum Mother’s Day gift this year, why not opt for something a little different? Something Mum can kick back and relax (or let loose) with? Here are a few tipples to get you thinking…
Solerno – For the Indulgent Mum
Solerno is perfect for a Mum who loves to live life to the fullest and enjoys a little indulgence – the kind that is passionate yet down to earth, and enjoys entertaining and spending quality time with friends and family around some delicious Italian shared plates. A beautifully refreshing blood orange liqueur, Solerno is vibrant and zesty yet smooth and luxurious with a lingering finish. Not to be confused with other orange liqueurs, Solerno is made from Sicilian Blood Oranges for a naturally intense flavour. RRP $69.
Hendrick’s Gin – For the Unusual Mum
Hendrick’s Gin is a most unusual gin infused with the essences of cucumber and rose, along with other wondrous botanicals from the world over. Made in Scotland this drop is for Mums who are bored by the mundane. It’s for the delightfully curious Mum who harbours a penchant for the moments of peculiarity that can be found in everyday life. It’s a most unusual gift indeed. RRP $75.
Milagro Tequila – For the Arty Mum
For the wonderful artist and innovator, or any Mum who loves to create. Milagro’s award-winning tequila encapsulates Mexico’s incredibly vibrant and striking art culture, marrying the country’s strong tequila tradition with the vivacious and creative renaissance of Mexico City. Milagro is crafted unlike any other tequila, and uses 100% Blue Agave, for a product that is sweeter, smoother, more aromatic and complex. RRP from $55.
Reyka Vodka – For the Adventurous Mum
Born from the rugged icy slopes and towering arctic waterfalls of Iceland, Reyka Vodka will tug at the heartstrings of any adventurous or outdoor-loving Mum. The Reyka distillery is Iceland’s very first, and is home to some of the world’s most pure resources. This allows the flavour of the vodka to shine through. Note: Mum is likely to picture herself abseiling the frozen cliff faces as she sips jubilantly on this delightfully clean and crisp offering. RRP $60 at selected liquor stores.
Glenfiddich 15 YO – For the Power Mum
With its rich oak and spice flavours, the renowned Glenfiddich Whisky 15 Year Old is a drink for the power Mum. She is successful, confident and strong, juggles her tasks with ease and commands respect in everything she does (and gets it!). If you’ve always thought your mum could give Gina Torres from Suits a run for her money, the Glenfiddich 15 YO is for her. RRP $115.
So what tipple will you choose for you mum this Mother’s Day?
