For many, Christmas dinner is undoubtedly one of the best meals that'll be put in front of you all year.
It's not even October and we're already thinking about the turkey, pigs in blankets and roast potatoes and veggies all slathered in gravy. *Dribbles.*
But here's something that might test your love of a Christmas dinner... would you drink it in a gin?
Nelson's Distillery & School is offering that exact prospect to shopper with its Christmas Dinner gin.
The Staffordshire-based distillery has combined the tastiest Crimbo dinner components and concocted their own spirit. Sipping it, you'll taste "the sweetness of cranberry fused with the complexity of sage".
Tasters will also get hints of turkey, which Nelson's urge us to trust them tastes good.
We don't know about you, but the sweet cranberry combined with the smoky turkey and herby sage sounds like match made in heaven. We'll definitely be giving this a try - fill us up, please!
Bottles of the Christmas Dinner gin (37.5% ABV) will be available for presale on Friday 25th September online, costing £25 for 50cl.
Another (slightly more controversial) option on offer at Nelson's is Brussel Sprout vodka. As divisive as the green vegetable its taste is base on, the distillery warn you'll either "love or hate" this gin.
"This exclusive, if controversial, blend subtly incorporates the nutty cabbage-like flavour," says Nelson's. We're less convinced on this one, but it would make a great present for a brussel sprout devotee.
On the more normal end of the scale, the gin makers are also brewing a Christmas Gin "featuring sparkling golden flakes and the comforting aromas of cinnamon and vanilla, meeting a tang of orange and a pinch of pink peppercorn."
For another festive tipple, you could stock up on Nelson's Spiced Clementine Rum, which "brings together the sweet warming taste of nutmeg and a light zest of clementine mixed flawlessly with Nelson's Signature Blend Rum."
You can buy all of Nelson's gins online and preorder the Christmas Dinner gin on 25th September here.
