With Valentine’s Day approaching, a lot of couples are probably scrambling to buy the perfect gift and book the perfect place for a romantic date. But February 14 doesn’t just have to be a celebration of love between couples. It can also celebrate other types of love, such as the love between friends. After all, some of our friendships have lasted longer than our romantic relationships, and the bond shared between lifelong friends is something that’s also worth remembering.
One way to celebrate lasting friendships this month is by sharing a drink, and Boozy has several alcoholic drinks to choose from its selection of Valentine’s bundles. As an added bonus, these bundles come with flasks and glasses that are perfect when sharing a drink with friends. Here are the best Valentine’s bundles that you can give as gifts to your friends:
While some friendships may be temporary, some can stand the test of time. On this special day, there’s no better way to celebrate those lasting friendships than having a drink from a classic whisky in the Johnnie Walker Black Label. This iconic drink is created using whiskies that are aged for a minimum of 12 years from all parts of Scotland. The result is a deluxe blend with an unmistakable smooth, deep, and complex character that is perfect for any occasion with a friend, whether it’s a night out or a shared meal and drink at home.
If you have friends who prefer wine over whisky, then the Bread and Butter Chardonnay may be just what they want as a gift. This Chardonnay opens with rich notes of vanilla bean and almond husk, its creamy notes balanced by a soft minerality and a hint of tropical fruit. Those notes continue until they are joined with bright acidity and well-integrated oak, leading to a long, creamy finish. These flavors make the Bread and Butter Chardonnay a perfect pairing for shellfish, pasta with a cream-based sauce, or any dish with a soft textured protein and a buttery or creamy element.
There’s a saying that good things take time, and that can be true of some friendships, and it can also be true for the Glenlivet 12-Year-Old. This drink is a first-class malt and one of the most popular in the world. It preserves Glenlivet’s signature style, as this malt is first matured in traditional oak, before spending time in American oak casks, giving it notes of vanilla while also giving the whisky its distinctive smoothness. The result is a classic malt that is fruity, complex, sophisticated, and perfect for a gift to your friends who love a premium whisky blend.
Sangria is a popular drink that is oftentimes shared among friends, and the La Tita Sangria is one that you can give as a Valentine’s Day gift to a friend who is a fan of this alcoholic beverage. The La Tita Sangria is easy-to-drink and does not require preparing and mixing of ingredients. With its ruby red color, and the fruity and citrus notes that it provides, the La Tita Sangria gives freshness to the merits of young wine and is something that you can be enjoyed alone or among friends.
Like some Valentine’s Day bundles offered by Boozy, the Asti Martini Valentine’s Day Gift Bundle comes with a premium glass as well as a scented candle with either an Olive Tonic or Lavender Martini scent. But more than these additions, this quality drink is a sweet, low-alcohol sparkling wine that is made from Moscato grapes grown in the vicinity of Asti in Italy. This drink is perfect for friends who love to pair wine with food, as it is known as an aperitif and can also be paired with Asian food as an alternative to Alsacian wine.
The Yellow Tail Merlot is another premium wine that can serve as a gift for your friends on that special day. This Merlot has ripe and appealing red berry and cherry fruit flavors and a hint of mint picks up a touch of vanilla and a soft, velvety finish. It’s perfect to enjoy while they have a meal, and it can also be served when they host your next get-together.
The Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most widely recognized red wine grape varieties, and for your friends who prefer this type of wine, the Yellow Tail Cabernet Sauvignon could be the perfect Valentine’s gift. This red wine is vibrant, velvety, rich, and best enjoyed when young and is perfect to drink with family and friends, especially on a day as special as Valentine’s.
Bursting will all the rich flavors of juicy cherries, boysenberries, sweet plums, and smooth chocolate, the Barefoot Merlot is yet another wine that can serve as the ideal Valentine’s Day gift for friends. It is a classic red wine with a bold personality and comes in a Valentine’s Day gift set that includes a premium glass and a scented candle that any wine-loving friend would surely appreciate.
As the celebrations for Valentine’s Day get underway, it can be easy to forget that you can also celebrate other types of love on this special day. And for those who choose to celebrate their friendships by giving gifts to their dear friends, the whisky and wine Valentine’s Day gift bundles from Boozy will serve as the perfect gifts as you drink a toast to your good friendship and strong bond.
