Best Black Friday alcohol deals: Gin deals

The craft gin boom of the last few years seems to be dying down a bit, but there’s still a multitude of gins out there to try and selecting one of the many available can seem daunting due to their eye-catching bottle shapes and label designs. 

The good, old-fashioned G&T is still the most popular way to sip your gin, but there are new gin flavours to try with tonics to match, a variety of garnishes which compliment the botanicals used – and some gins are also excellent to try neat and, of course, in cocktails. Here are some of our favourites.

Best Black Friday alcohol deals: Whisky deals

Whisky has enjoyed a massive boom in popularity over the last 12 years, so much so that some single cask bottles and a few general releases are now snapped up within minutes of going on sale never to be seen again (unless you frequent the auction sites where these bottles are being sold for exorbitant prices by unscrupulous flippers). 

New distilleries have appeared all over the world eager to get in on the action, and no matter what you’re into, be it Scotch whisky, bourbon, blends, Irish whiskey, Texas single malts or anything else, prices are slowly creeping up. But that doesn’t mean you can't find a magical deal or two, so here are a few bottles I’m happy to recommend. 

Talisker 10 single malt whisky: Was

Talisker 10 single malt whisky: Was £44, now £26.79
Talisker 10 is a classic and a dram that's a good gateway into the peaty/coastal side of Scottish single malt whisky. I always have a bottle in the cupboard, and at this price, I just might be grabbing another!

Old Pulteney 12: Was

Old Pulteney 12: Was £32, now £24
One of the best 12 year old whiskies on the market, Old Pulteney 12 is full of coastal character, with salt and fruit notes dominating. There’s 25% off at Amazon and this is a great entry to Old Pulteney’s range.

Mortlach 15 Game Of Thrones: Was

Mortlach 15 Game Of Thrones: Was £120, now £86.95
This was the last bottle released in Diageo’s popular Game Of Thrones series of whiskies from around Scotland. This is a punchy single malt and since winter is definitely coming, you can get £33.05 off from the Whisky Exchange.

Jura 10 + 2 glasses: Was

Jura 10 + 2 glasses: Was £45, now £26.25
I finally made the journey to the isle of Jura from Islay back in the summer and poked my head into the distillery. It’s a charming place and I let with several samples. If you can’t get there, then why not bring  Jura to you with this nice gift set with 42% off at Amazon?

Fettercairn 12: Was

Fettercairn 12: Was £48, now £33.11
Fettercairn has been enjoying something of a renaissance, with their Warehouse batches selling out almost immediately. But if you want to get into this single malt, the 12, with its fruits notes, is a good place to start. On sale at Amazon.

Smokehead Single Malt Whisky: £39.99

Smokehead Single Malt Whisky: £39.99, now £23.99
OK, so we don’t know what Islay distillery this is from, but that doesn’t mean you should pass it by. It’s big and bold and packs a meaty punch, but there’s also a sweetness in here which rounds things out. Makes a mean cocktail and is lovely neat.

Johnnie Walker 18: Was

Johnnie Walker 18: Was £70, now £52.84
The 18 year old from Johnnie Walker is a belter of a blended whisky. There’s a cereal note at its heart, but it's wrapped up in fruity goodness. With 25% off at Amazon, this is a must have... and would make a great Christmas gift.

Johnnie Walker Double Black: Was

Johnnie Walker Double Black: Was £42.50, now £25.19
The Double Black is a smokier version of Johnnie Walker’s classic 12 year old Black label and was first introduced for the travel retail market. There’s no age statement, but it’s a solid blended Scotch that has quite a bit of character.

Monkey Shoulder: Was

Monkey Shoulder: Was £27, now £23
The ever-dependable Monkey Shoulder blended malt has 19% off at Amazon. This is a good sipper and a great mixer, and although at 40% ABV it lacks a little oomph (it’s 43% in the US you lucky people) this is a great drop for the price.

Smokey Monkey: Was

Smokey Monkey: Was £31, now £26
The younger sibling of Monkey Shoulder was released a few years ago with an eye on the cocktail market. It's now available more generally and is on sale at Waitrose. This is a decent sipper, but is elevated in a mixed drink. Try it in a Rob Roy this Christmas.

Jack Daniel’s Gentlemen Jack: Was

Jack Daniel’s Gentlemen Jack: Was £32, now £25.80
A step up from the standard Old No.7 bottle of Jack in our opinion, this offering from the famous Tennessee distillery boasts more flavour and aromas. This is a great sipper and also works well in a cocktail. Grab one from Sainsbury's.

Wooodford Reserve Bourbon: Was

Wooodford Reserve Bourbon: Was £32, now £25
Amazon have knocked £7 from the price of the excellent Woodford Reserve bourbon. This is great neat, but throw a rock on it or pour into a cocktail and it still shines.

Ardbeg Monsters of Smoke

Ardbeg Monsters of Smoke - buy for £39 from Amazon
OK, so there’s no money off this 3x20cl pack, but we’re pointing it out as it’s an excellent little box which would make a brilliant Christmas gift. Inside you’ll find small bottles of the Ardbeg 10, Ardbeg An Oa and Ardbeg Wee Beastie. Nab a pack from Amazon.

Sailor Jerry Caribbean rum: Was

Sailor Jerry Caribbean rum: Was £20, now £14
The newer versions of Sailor Jerry Caribbean spiced rum may not have quite the massive vanilla slap in the face from days gone by, but it’s still a great drop to sink into cocktails – and for £15 on Amazon, give it a try.
