Holiday Gift Guide: High-Roller Spirits

Get your swag on with these luxury spirits

The best spirits to give for the high rollers in your life.

We’re sorry to have to tell you this, but you’re probably not going to get any of the five items in our High-Roller Gift Guide this year for the holidays — no matter how good you were.

But we still suggest you check it out and fantasize about unwrapping these rare and expensive bottlings, including the limited-edition The Glenrothes 1970 Extraordinary Cask #10573 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, the oversized Moët & Chandon Champagne Golden Jeroboam, and the historic Appleton Estate 50-Year-Old Jamaica Independence Reserve Rum.

While you daydream, you should sip one of our truly rich cocktails, which fortunately won’t break the bank. Try fixing the decadent and seasonally appropriate Baileys Peppermint Cream, combining the Irish cream with hot chocolate, whipped cream, and a garnish of crushed candy canes.

Or make the Lavender Honey Cream created by advisory board member H. Joseph Ehrmann that calls for organic vodka, heavy cream, an egg white, and a touch of sweet lavender honey syrup.

And don’t forget that our overall Holiday Gift Guide showcases spirited presents of all kinds (and prices) picked by top bartenders from around the country. We’re sure you’ll find something you’ll want to give or receive.
