CÎROC x Moschino GetItINKD Personalised Bottle
CÎROC vodka has launched a new campaign with Italian fashion house Moschino and its creative director, Jeremy Scott. As part of the global collaboration, he designed a limited-edition CÎROC Vodka bottle; the innovative design sees the CÎROC’s signature blue, in a playful pastel shade, wrapped in Moschino’s iconic gold chain and dangling letters.
The fashion forward bottle is available to order online here on GetitINKD, where customers will be given the opportunity to make their gift extra special and personalise their CÎROC x Moschino bottle by adding a name or message, which will be permanently ‘inkd’ on the bottle, in a stylish gold design (RRP £40.00).
GetItINKD is CÎROC’s recent partner, a brand-new customisation service, which excites our customers by allowing them to personalise and add their individual style to their CÎROC bottle by choosing patterns, patches and text to be directly ‘inkd’ on to the glass.
They can choose any flavour old or new from the CÎROC Vodka portfolio: CÎROC original, Red Berry, French Vanilla, Pineapple, Apple, Mango and now, the CÎROC x Moschino limited-edition design. An absolutely fabulous Christmas gift idea for someone special and the perfect way to give your gift that personalised touch!
The Summerton Club Premium Spirits Subscription Box
The Summerton Club is the newest premium spirits subscription box on the scene and it is making waves online already. Sharing beautifully-aged bottles of delight to their members, The Summerton Club mainly focuses on Whiskies (Bourbon, Whiskey), Brandies (Armagnac, Cognac, Grappa) and Rums (Cachaça, Rum, Rhum, Ron).
It is perfect as a regular subscription box for yourself or as a Christmas treat for someone special this year and we’ve been blown away by the quality of this service and of the drinks offered up.
The brand’s founder Dan came up with the idea after searching for the perfect aged spirits subscription but was shocked to find there was nothing of this type already out there. He later went on to start The Summerton Club, with the aim of bringing premium aged spirits into the country, for people who truly appreciate them. The Summerton Club is the perfect way to fill up your drinks cabinet with treasure and be the envy of your friends!

Maestro DOBEL Diamante Tequila
Eleven generations of tequila mastery infuse new, pioneering Maestro DOBEL® – a range of four, super-premium spirits that have just landed in the UK from Mexico. Our favourite has to be the Diamante Tequila. This bright, light ‘cristalino’ style tequila with silver touches holds exceptional body thanks to the high-quality agave used, harvested at peak condition. Tantalising aromas of wood and agave are released, including buttery notes, caramel, honey, maple, nutty and fruity tones, touches of cinnamon, almond and a whisper of smokiness giving it a gorgeous aroma.
A complex infusion of sweet flavours: caramel, honey and maple, with nutty and vanilla flavours means that the liquid has a seductive smoothness and long finish that leaves you wanting more. Maestro DOBEL is available from premium hotels and bars in London, such as the Corbin & King Group, The Lanesborough and Nobu and online via drinks specialist sites, including Master of Malt, The Whisky Exchange and Drinks Direct.
John Alexander Art Series Limited Edition Crystal Head Vodka Bottle
The John Alexander Art Series Limited Edition Crystal Head Vodka Bottle is a perfect gift for those who love art! The bottle is an exact replica of John Alexander’s evocative 1988 oil painting dancing on Dancing on the Water Lilies of Life, currently on display at the Dallas Museum of Art. Rather than a designed label or bottle wrap, this artwork is skilfully baked into the glass of the iconic skull bottle by hand at an artisanal craftsmen workshop in Milan.
With only 3,000 available in the UK this limited-edition bottle is a beautiful keepsake and opportunity to own an affordable piece of his art. The bottles are available now from Selfridges, RRP £120.
