Our Top Picks for Mother’s Day Beer, Wine & Spirits Gifts
Mother’s Day is a chance for us all to show our mums how much we appreciate them. With Mother’s Day coming up soon on Sunday 14th March 2021, you might be thinking… What will be the best gift for Mother’s Day?
Celebrated since the middle ages, Mother’s Day (or Mothering Sunday) was originally a day where Christians visited their ‘Mother Church’ – the church where they were baptised. According to this tradition, Mother’s Day is celebrated in the UK every year on the fourth Sunday of Lent.
Usually, you might be able to see your mum on Mother’s Day and take her out for a special meal or spend some quality time together. However, with the UK under lockdown, this year may need to be a little bit different!
To help you find the perfect gift for your mum that you can send right to her doorstep, we’ve curated a selection of the best beer, wine and spirits gift ideas that will show her just how much you care.
Our selection includes 14 of our favourite beer, wine, cider and spirits gifts for a wide range of tastes and styles. Whether your mum likes a little bit of luxury, something fun and fruity, or likes to try new craft beers, we’ve got you covered. There’s also something for gin-lovers, cider drinkers and of course, a fantastic selection of wines and Prosecco.
Mother’s Day Beer & Cider Gifts
Wondering what to get for someone who likes beer? Whether your mum likes fruit beer, a crisp, refreshing cider or is always looking to try the latest craft beer, we’ve got you covered with our top picks for Mother’s Day beer and cider gifts.
Adventurous Beer Lover
For mums who like to try something new, our British Isles Mixed 12 is the ideal Mother’s Day gift. Featuring 12 British beers in a range of styles and flavours, this is the perfect gift for the adventurous beer-loving mum. Featuring fruity IPAs, citrus pale ales, malty red ales and rich, creamy stouts from some of the UK’s best breweries – including Adnams, Fuller’s, Oakham and Innis & Gunn.
Fruity British Beers
Lots of mums like a fruity beer, and Yorkshire brewery Samuel Smith’s have two particularly delicious ones to try. Why not order a selection of Samuel Smith’s Raspberry Fruit Beer and Samuel Smith’s Strawberry Fruit Beer for your mum this Mother’s Day? Brewed with organic barley and then blended with natural, organic fruit juice, Samuel Smith’s Fruit Beer releases a burst of natural aroma and a semi-sweet, authentic flavour.
For the cider-loving mums, our specially selected Mixed Case of 12 Ciders will make an excellent Mother’s Day gift. Spanning the spectrum of cider styles, from dry to sweet and including apple, pear and fruit-flavoured ciders, our specially selected mixed case is a real treat for the cider connoisseur. The gift pack includes ciders from Sheppy’s, Brothers and Aspall, as well as some of our favourite artisanal cider makers.
Mother’s Day Wine Gifts
Mother’s Day and wine go hand in hand. If your mum likes to relax with a glass of wine or Prosecco at the end of the week, we’ve got a great selection of wines to make for the perfect gift this Mother’s Day.
A Fantastic Fizz
With an elegantly shaped bottle and a sleek black sparkly label, Jack Rabbit Prosecco DOC will make for a stylish Mother’s Day gift for mums who love Prosecco. This is the real deal – a genuine Italian Prosecco from the DOC region, Jack Rabbit Prosecco DOC is bursting with peach and apricot flavours and just a hint of sweetness.
Sweet & Fruity
If you know your mum likes a sweet, fruity drink, why not treat her to a bottle of Lindisfarne Strawberry Wine this Mother’s Day? Bursting with natural strawberry flavour, this English fruit wine is delicious served chilled, and can also be mixed with soda, tonic water or lemonade for a refreshing summer drink.
Crisp, Dry White
If your mum’s idea of heaven is a perfectly chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc, look no further. We’d recommend a bottle or two of Purcari Sauvignon Blanc from Moldovian Vineyard, Purcari. Founded in 1827, Purcari is one of Moldova’s most respected vineyards, with similarities in the soil and climate with the French Bordeaux region. Sitting between the intense citrus character of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and the elegance of the Loire Valley, this wine brings grapefruit citrus aromas alongside juicy passion fruit and melon flavours.
Sumptuous Semi-sweet Red
Fruity and slightly sweet, Apelia Black Label is a medium-sweet red wine from Greece. Perhaps you’d like to remind your mum of a treasured family holiday spent sipping red wine in Greek tavernas, or simply buy her a gift that you know she’ll enjoy drinking. Bursting with fruity cherry aromas, honey sweetness and a hint of vanilla, Apelia Black Label is a light, easy-drinking red wine.
Mother’s Day Spirits Gifts
If your mum is a gin lover, a vodka connoisseur or likes to treat herself to an indulgent liqueur, check out our favourite spirits to buy for Mother’s Day.
Stylishly Presented Pink Gin
As the pink gin craze continues to spread, chances are your mum might be a fan of this fruity style of gin. The beautifully presented ‘Collectors Edition’ Pink Gin from British distillery Zymurgorium would make the perfect gift for Mother’s Day. With juicy flavours of mango, pineapple and passionfruit this is a pink gin with a tropical twist, presented in a beautiful fan-shaped gift box.
Vodka Tasting Selection
Perhaps vodka is more your mum’s style? The Distiller’s Vodka Collection gift set from Norfolk’s Wild Knight Distillery would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift, and allow your mum to discover something a little different. The selection contains three 50ml bottles of vodka. Firstly, Wild Knight’s signature English Vodka – a smooth, copper pot still vodka with a crisp, clean flavour. The second vodka is a caramelised vodka, Nelson’s Gold, with a creamy, caramel flavour. Finally, the gift pack contains Wild Knight’s very own Espresso Martini – a blend of Wild Knight Vodka and espresso coffee, for a delicious cocktail that’s ready to enjoy, straight from the bottle.
If your mum loves chocolate but you’re looking for something a little more than the usual box of chocolates, why not buy her a bottle of Mozart Chocolate Pure 87 liqueur this year? A blend of the finest dark chocolate, vanilla and caramel, this intense, bittersweet liqueur is the ultimate treat for dark chocolate lovers. What’s more – it’s lactose-free and suitable for vegans!
However, if your mum prefers milk chocolate, Mozart also has an exquisite Chocolate Cream Liqueur. Combining luxury Belgian chocolate and fresh cream, this silky-smooth liqueur is rich, creamy and wickedly indulgent.
If you’re wondering what are some cool things to make for Mother’s Day, why not buy your mum the ingredients for a trendy Espresso Martini? Only the finest Italian espresso liqueur will do – we recommend Galliano Ristretto Coffee Liqueur, made with Italian espresso coffee, and presented in the stylish and iconic Galliano triangular bottle.
A Little Bit of Luxury
This elegant Meukow VSOP Superior Cognac gift pack would make an excellent Mother’s Day gift. Meukow Cognac was founded in 1862 by the Meukow brothers and is an award-winning French Cognac house. Beautifully presented with two cut-glass tumblers, this 700ml bottle of VSOP Superior Cognac offers a little bit of luxury to show your mum just how much you appreciate her. An exquisite Cognac, Meukow VSOP Superior won double gold at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and Silver Outstanding Medal at The International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2018.
