Embrace the spirit of giving by gifting a premium liqueur. Most have remarkably beautiful packaging that requires little in terms of extra decoration. Often, all that is required is a little ribbon and a gift tag. On the gift tag, handwrite a favourite cocktail recipe
that uses the liqueur for a personal element. If you want to add a little elegance to the package, add a cocktail book, an elegant cocktail glass or tumbler. Halifax’s own NovaScotian Crystal has a number of beautiful options available. A great gift for the beer lover in your family is a ready-made beer tasting. Craft, artisanal and imported beer has never been more popular than it is now. Here’s what you’ll need to include:
Beer Tasting Glasses – The best all-purpose glasses have a tulip shape, such as Spiegelau’s Stemmed Pilsner Glasses (Amazon.ca), Le Baladin Beer Glass (truebeer.com) or the Teku Beer Glass by Rastal (truebeer.com) along with downloaded tasting sheets (beerology.ca) and a selection of beers representing different styles. Use the new Beer Discovery Guide to help you make your selections or consult with a Retail Product Specialist at your local NSLC store.
