Six tasting sets perfect for Mother's Day

Give mum something super to sip this Mothering Sunday…


Mums are generally super lovely human beings who have spent their lives cleaning up after us, reminding us that they’re always right and giving us helpful life advice. And Mother’s Day is the day to say thank you to her for everything she does (even if you don’t always appreciate the “I told you so” remarks.)

While flowers, chocolates and cushions are all great gifts, this year maybe think about giving her something a little more...spirited. We’ve rounded up six tasting sets perfect for Mother’s Day, filled with everything from gins and whiskies to rums and brandies.

  1. The Mother’s Day Tasting Set

Created especially for this joyous day, this tasting set is a great way to explore a variety of different styles of gin. Cocktail o’clock is but a few drams away! Plus, over on Master of Malt you can get your set for an absolutely gin-tastic £17.95 while stocks last! (RRP £24.95)
