This set includes all three gins (plus dry sparkling wine!) recommended to pair with Shaker & Spoon’s Jolly for Gin Punch Box. You can try each gin with one of the punch bowls, and still have plenty left over for even more holiday gin punch!

Robert recommends Citadelle Gin for its clean, fresh botanicals (a whopping 19 of them!) and its healthy balance between citrus and juniper. As Robert says, “Citadelle offers up an elegant complexity and character when building a cocktail.”
“RIGHT Gin is incredibly floral, with underlying citrus notes and a hint of black pepper on the finish. The juniper cardamom and black pepper of the gin become even more pronounced when combined with sparkling wine, creating an incredibly diverse profile for punches,” raves Greg. RIGHT Gin is a citrus-forward, New Western–style gin that works exceptionally well in classic gin cocktails, taken neat, or paired with fresh, seasonal flavors.
“Gin brings life into cocktails! In small portions, it can be that missing seasoning. And a beautiful citrus-forward gin often has the perfect botanicals to pair with seasonal ingredients,” says Christian “Suzu” Suzuki. “Tanqueray Ten is the perfect gin for this box because of its demure use of whole citrus in the distillation process.” It also has a wide range of uses when you’re playing with classic cocktail formulas, doing its part in everything from making an incredibly delicate martini to amplifying the citrus in gimlets.
