CHRISTMAS IS COMING....
The countdown to Christmas has begun and the Turton Wines Team has been busy finding the perfect selection of gifts to make your shopping easier, with something for everyone's taste and budget in our Gift Section. You can go for a little bit of everything with our hampers, go deluxe with beautifully presented spirit gifts, go bold with our wine magnums to share, or go for simple quality with our smaller sets of beer, wine and miniatures. Take a look:
Our range of Hamper Gift Boxes provide a mix of wine, gin, beer and deli products - perfect for sharing anytime of the year. Each is made to order, so you can let us select for you, or let us know of any preferences and we will do our best to make it just right.
Our Small Hamper Gift Box includes two bottles ow wine and deli products to match, whilst our Medium Hamper Gift Box adds beer, nibbles and a touch of sparkle to the mix. The Gin Hamper Gift Box brings nibbles and mixers to accompany the smoothness of Tarquin's Gin for a perfect G&T.
If you want something a little smaller, we also have our popular Wine & Deli Gift Bag. Perfect for someone special to really treat themselves without breaking the bank!
A staple to share around the dinner table, our Magnums are selected to reflect popularity and versatility.
Bordeaux is a great go to, with its typical Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon blend creating a soft, juicy berry red with hints of gentle spice. Our Chateau Roc de Segur adds a touch of Cabernet Franc and goes through no oak treatment, for an easy drinking, youthful example excellent with red meats, roasted veg, wild mushrooms and garlic.
For those wanting a powerful red, Rioja always delivers with its Tempranillo-based wines going through long ageing to deliver complexity that can handle the boldest of dishes. Our Covila Crianza Rioja Magnum is warm and deep, with layers of black cherry, toasted, balsamic nuances, chocolate and hints of leather.
The Feteasca Neagra grape is a real winter warmer of Eastern Europe and can be paired with a wide range of hearty roast dinners. Our Budureasca Premium Magnum only uses old vine grapes matured for 6 months in oak. Velvety and soft, it shows intense ripe, almost jammy cherry and forest fruits with warming spice on the finish.
For those wanting the premium name in white wines, Chablis cannot be surpassed. Our La Meuliere Magnum is a perfect example of why it is so renowned with ample famous 'gunflint' character. Refined citrus, apple, flowers and minerality create a clean, fresh wine of incredible length. A perfect aperitif or with charcuterie, seafood, light buffets.
For those wanting to taste the sun on Christmas Day, Albarino is known for its mineral-driven floral and fruity palate that enjoys similar light food pairing, especially seafood. Our Pazo Senorans Magnum allows 4 months on fine lees during production for a wealth of complexity and satisfying balance of power and finesse.
And finally, Rose drinkers are not left out! The beautiful taste of Italy is brought by our Mabis Biscardo Rosapasso Magnum. True elegance, with delicate wild strawberry and cherry on a smooth palate full of freshness with a long, sapid finish. Perfect with Mediterranean-style platters and nibbles.
SPIRIT GIFT SETS
For spirit lovers, we have a wide range of Spirit Gift Sets to choose from. Once again, Drinks by the Dram have come out with fantastic mini sets of the finest spirits from around the world. They specialise in the careful curation of these sets, with craftmanship at the fore. Choose from Gin, Whisky, Bourbon or Rum.
Gin lovers can choose gifts from our best selling craft distilleries: Cuckoo, Tarquins, Black Powder or The Lakes. Lancashire's Cuckoo from Brindle Distillery offer a beautifully boxed set of their core range including their smooth Signature, soft Spiced, and honey-raspberry Sunshine. They also offer a range of miniatures - perfect stocking fillers.
Cornwall's multi award-winning and terribly trendy Tarquin's provide mini sampler sets alongside their range of full and half-size gins. The set of miniatures includes their Cornish Dry, Rhubarb & Raspberry, British Blackberry, and Blood Orange.
Back to Lancashire, The Lakes Distillery offer mini sets of not only their famed whisky, gin and vodka, but also of their widening gin portfolio. The mixed set provides their three signature spirits, whilst the gin set includes their Classic Dry, Pink Grapefruit, and Elderflower.
Local legends Black Powder are a Christmas stalwart of ours, with their miniature sets and gift stacking bottles proving popular throughout the year. Choose from a set of 5 core gins or liqueur gins in their boxed miniature sets, or choose from a whopping 10 flavours of their beautifully designed 20cl stackers.
We've made sure whisky is covered too. Besides our premium range, we have selected some lovely gift options from Ireland's Teeling and Sweden's Mackmyra. Go for small or large with Teeling Whiskey - their Trinity miniature boxed set featuring Small Batch, Single Malt and Single Grain whiskies, or their premium Small Batch set encased in a gold presentation tin with two engraved glasses.
Mackmyra provide their ever popular boxed set of single malt minis - Signature Mack, Bourbon/Sherry casked Svensk Ek, and ultra Juniper smoky Svensk Rok.

For the best in rum, take a look at our Severed Hand Selection Gift Set from Black Powder distillery, featuring 3 x 20cl bottles of Jamaican Spiced, Caribbean, and Roasted Hazelnut Rum. Black Powder distillery is situated in the picturesque countryside overlooking the coastal peninsula of Western Lancashire. All their spirits are meticulously handmade in traditional copper pot stills.
After the sublime purity of vodka? Look no further than the Polish U'Luvka, possibly the most awarded producers of vodka in the world with 70 international awards to their name. Smooth and delicate with notes of rubber, aniseed and butter, this vodka is matched by the sublime bottle and gift box. Both gift sets - miniature or full size bottle - include two handsome glasses with no bases, harking back to an old, royal tradition from 17th century Poland.
Go back to English roots with the warming honey tipple Mead. Our Mead range comes courtesy of local neighbours The Lancashire Mead Co, whose national success bringing this historic drink to the fore belies the small brewery of this husband and wife team. Their Druidic beliefs means all mead is pure with raw, unpasteurised, un-sterilised honey, no chemical additions, and free of sulphites, gluten, wheat, fish and dairy. Their beautiful Gift From The Gods gift set includes 4 miniature bottles of their most popular meads - perfect for both newcomers and mead connoisseurs.
If beer is more favoured, we have a wide range of craft ales from across the UK and Europe. Our popular gift trios help to brighten up the day. Choose from locally loved Bank Top and their timeless range, or German tradition at its finest with the Ayinger trio. After something different? You can or select your own from our wider range of craft ales and separate boxes available to buy.
