Lockdown is back and that means lockdown libations is back too, meaning all of our intentions not to drink so much during round two have gone out of the window. OOPS. And given Christmas is coming we’re getting festive with our bevvies this time too, alongside some brand spanking new tipples. Get this Natty Wine sweater on and drink up!


Vermouth is still on its way up and had lockdown not happened we truly believe it would be of been the drink of the summer (here’s hoping for next year!). Vermò, made in Turin, is a modern take on the classic, and with 30 botanicals in there it’s a spicy little number.

£27.95 from Master of Malt


If you thought tinnies were just for summer picnics in the park, think again. VACAY is doing cocktails like Palomas and Moscow Mules in cans with super cute branding. These fruity beasts are the closest most of us will get to having a happy hour cocktail around the pool this year.

From £18 from Vacay

Christmas Spirit

‘Tis the season to get into the Christmas spirit and there’s no better way to do so than with a festive spirit. Black Cow have infused all the flavours of a Christmas pudding into their Pure Milk Vodka.

£30 from Harvey Nichols


Nothing says Christmas like popping a bottle of the good stuff. Oh yes, we’re talking about the Babycham. Go retro this Christmas with the sparkling perry beloved by nanas across the country.

Swift Martini

Pre-mixed cocktail deliveries have blown up this year (for obvious reasons). If you’ve been craving a Gibson since watching The Queen’s Gambit then pour this one out and just pop in a pickled onion. ????

Vinatic Wines

If trying to pair wine with food stresses you out then this is the vino for you. With COW and FISH Vinatic Wines has done all the work, labelling the bottles after the food you can match it with.

Belle Année Bag-in-Box

It may not be summer but that won’t stop us from drinking rosé, especially when it comes in such a handy box. Mirabeau has launched a BiB version of its Belle Année wine and it means you can get the equivalent of three bottles in the fridge door. Yes way rosé.

£25.99 from Waitrose
