Valentines Day - Gift ideas for him and her

February the 14th is fast approaching us now that dry and dull January is out of the way.

Are you stuck for ideas to get your loved one? We've put together a few suggestions for present ideas for "him & her" for things available from The Strong Water Co. here in Banchory - the shop for everything beer, gin, wine, whisky and rum related on Banchory's high street.

For Her* Disclaimer, all gifts suggested are more than suitable for both him & her!

Eden Mill - Love Gin

"Using a mixture of locally sourced and more exotic botanical's Eden Mill has created this little number! Pale pink in colour which comes from the use of Hibiscus and Rose Petals which also provide flavours of sweet vanilla, marshmallow, and floral notes. "

Esker - Scottish Raspberry Gin

"A local light gin refreshing gin distilled in a traditional copper still and blended with pure Scottish water. Distinctive juniper, silver birch sap, and Scottish raspberry."

Kintyre - Pink Gin

"Naturally coloured by the Scottish raspberries this is a rich and fruity spirit that is well balanced and creamy due to the further use of Scottish Oats."

Cannonball - Cabernet Sauvignon - 2016 California

"Tasting Note: Balance in the mouth is exceptional from start to finish - strawberry, blueberry, and red apple dipped in dark chocolate, all-spice and a layer of toasted oak. Tannins are structured but not overwhelming, with very well balanced acidity."

Cannonball - Chardonnay - 2017 California

"Tasting Note: Sophisticated nose of lemon curd, peaches, and a hint of pie crust. On the palate, zippy stone fruit and tropical notes, pineapple and soft vanilla bean on the finish."
