Lots of people take wine as gifts for Christmas parties. Be a little cooler and give a good bottle of scotch or other liquor!! Lots of fine gift sets are available of big-name distillers usually replete with matching highball glasses or other paraphernalia. Stick to the basics: whiskey; vodka; tequila; rum. Try and know what people like but it's hard to go wrong with, say, Glenlivet.

But the generic stuff is for acquaintances; or post-holiday bargain shopping. For good friends, you try a little harder. You don't need to go all out but you should get them something a little special. Microdistilleries are popping up everywhere and offer great liquors. Get something local or from your friend's home state. In our area, it's the North Shore Distillery and their excellent line of gins.

For your best friends? Well, best friends spare no expense and know the drink of choice. We're talking highly specialized, prize-winning stuff; special editions. Stroll through our website and find the best of the best. Like Pappy Van Winkle 20yr or the incomparable Grand Marnier Cuvee du Cent Cinquantenaire.
