Default Holiday Gift Packs

One of my favorite things about the holidays is the limited edition gift packs the spirits producers offer. I just picked up a Barbancourt 8 yr pack that comes with a really nice tall glass with the Barbancourt logo etched in the glass and a wooden muddler. Last year I got a couple of nice logo rocks glasses with Mount Gay Eclipse. Not to be a scrooge, but I'll be keeping this for myself.

Don't put the Barbancourt glass in the dishwasher! It'll wash the logo right off it.

This looks a nice pack, containing a Havana Club Anejo 3 in a gift tin:

http://www.drinksdirect.co.uk/acatal..._Gift_Tin.html

Unfortunately it doesn't look easy to tell from the picture if it's actually a tin or just a cardboard box that they're calling a tin.

There's also a Sailor Jerry gift pack from the same site: http://www.drinksdirect.co.uk/acatal...Gift_Pack.html

My favourite gift pack has to be this Diplomatico Reserve Exclusiva one with the Hipflask http://www.harveynichols.com/s356752...gift-pack.html

Not seen any seasonal packaging on the shelves in the UK yet but i'll keep an eye out

Excellent, I'd like to get that. Do you sell it at Hi-Time (via online order)?
