A Wee Gift Guide
Dear Secret Santa,
Here are a few things we'd like to receive this Christmas…
A wee Swig...
Swig Hip Flasks, based on the Newtownards Road, make the most stylish personalised hip flasks you could wish for and even Phil's mild obsession with tweed and tartan is catered for with their Harris Tweed cases!
Help them find out more about what goes into a hip flask on our Belfast Whiskey Walk, or even better, treat them to the Whiskey Walk Luxury Gift Pack. Not only will the whiskey lover in your life get to enjoy a tour taking in 7 different types of Irish Whiskey with an Irish Whiskey expert, but they'll get a Glencairn whiskey glass and a miniature Powers Gold Label Irish Whiskey, to drink, or put in their shiny new hip flask!
Swig Hip Flasks start from £49 and the cases are £10.
Belfast Whiskey Walk tickets are £60 per person with the Luxury Gift Pack an additional £10.
A wee bit of knowledge...
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest! There's nothing Caroline enjoys more than learning and if you can learn how to do something based around food and drink then she's all in.
Butchery or Foraging class - Broughgammon Farm offer a series of 'Good Life Courses' at their farm in Ballycastle including butchery and foraging. We all know Caroline's love of goat, with their cookbook being a firm favourite on her shelf as it showcases so much local produces and local chefs.
Classes at Broughgammon Farm start at £149 per person.
A wee bite to eat...
Taste and Tour Foodie Hamper - You wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t love local produce, so we put together our very own Taste and Tour Foodie Hamper featuring a few of our favourite things to eat and drink. Have it delivered or collect from our friends at Arcadia Deli (and buy even more delicious goodies for the festive period).
Taste and Tour Foodie Hamper is £70.
Belfast Food Tour and Belfast Bites tickets are £55 per person.
A wee home brew...
Home Brewing Experience - For the beer head, Edible Flower have a Home Brewing Experience which is is the perfect way for the Home Brew enthusiast to get started on their brewing adventure, or learn to hone their skills further as they eat and drink through the day, brewing all the way… without the jingles though.. get it? Jingle all the way?!
If they prefer to be shown the ropes and taste the wares of the professionals, then our Brewery Tour is the gift to give! They’ll meet our resident beer geek and visit 3 very different brewers, learning the ways of brewing and the new trends in beer as well as tasting over 11 different beers along the way.
Edible Flower Homebrew Experience starts at £35 per person.
Brewery Tour tickets are £45 per person.
A wee drop of gin...

Alternatively you could treat your friend to our highly sought after Belfast Gin Jaunt where guests try 7 very different gins learning all about the juniper laced spirit as they visit some of our favourite gin joints.

Belfast Gin Jaunt tickets are £60 per person.
A wee morning boost...

Bailies Coffee Subscription - We're a little obsessed with Bailies Coffee here in Taste and Tour Towers and we love getting a new batch of coffee delivered every month to try. They've got some great coffee gadgets too - Celeste talked us into getting a Bonavita 8-cup Brewer for the office and we haven't looked back! Ps they have a Christmas Blend out too!
