Margarita Date Night Kit
Sculpd x Black Lines Valentine's Pottery Date Night Kit
The bottled cocktail experts at Black Lines has teamed up with Sculpd pottery to create a date night activity kit to bring the heat. The kit includes your boozy bottle, easy-to-use air dry clay, chilli seeds and everything you need to get creative. Pour yourselves a Spicy Tommy's margarita and get hands-on making your own chilli planter clay pot. We love the blend of earthy agave, refreshing zingy lime and subtle chilli heat.

Kyrö Pink Gin
If your sweetheart is a gin aficionado, treat them to a gift of this beautiful blush-coloured bottle. This Finnish spirit is infused with fresh flavours from foraged lingonberries, ripe strawberries and rhubarb. This delicate drink is far from sickly sweet, with light red fruit flavours, a full creamy mouthfeel and elements of spice. Pair with a simple tonic for the perfect Valentine's Day serve.
Single malt Scotch whisky
Darkness 8 Year Old
Looking for a flavourful whisky with plenty of character? Darkness 8 Year Old has been matured in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in small Oloroso sherry casks, imparting plenty of rich candied fruit flavours that linger on the palate. Expect warm spices, toasted vanilla, fruit cake and a hint of smoke. It's delicious on its own, maybe with a couple of drops of water, or in a classic highball cocktail.
English sparkling wine
Ridgeview Fitzrovia Rosé
This light and fruity English sparkling wine is perfect for celebrating a special occasion. With hints of raspberry and a subtle honey sweetness, this refreshing bottle of bubbles is all we want for Valentine's Day. Try serving with a simple smoked salmon starter or some chocolate-dipped strawberries for a seriously sophisticated pairing.
Bottled cocktail selection
The Valentine's Collection
If the thought of breaking out the cocktail shaker fills you with dread, why not try a box of beautifully mixed Valentine's Day drinks? These four eye-catching cocktails have something for everyone; from a refreshing pink rhubarb & cucumber spritz, to an indulgent chocolate & mint espresso martini. Avoid the clichés this year and opt for interesting twists on the classics.

Valentine's truffle pack and prosecco
Pale Fox prosecco
Toast to your favourite person with a glass of Pale Fox prosecco. This delicate, fine fizz is one to be savoured and sipped at length, with notes of white floral blossom, hints of sweet peach and pink apples. Grab a glass of this complex glassful for a luxurious evening in. It's also low in sulphites and there are no animal products used in production, so it's vegan as well. They've also partnered with Charbonnel & Walker to pair up some delicious salted caramel truffles, their own amaretti biscuits with their classic single-estate prosecco into the ultimate Valentine's Day gift set.

Floral prosecco cocktail collection
Spirit of Zing prosecco cocktail collection
Present some impressive prosecco cocktails with minimal effort with a kit from Spirit of Zing. These individual cocktails are handcrafted in London, and come with a mini bottle of prosecco to spruce up your spritz. Choose from a fruity peach & elderflower spritz, an aromatic saffron & rose gimlet for a floral take on the classic or a zingy passionfruit & orange blossom spritz.
Conker cold brew coffee liqueur
This gorgeously smooth coffee liqueur is cold-brewed by Dorset-based Beanpress Coffee Co, a method that allows the coffee to retain its rich and chocolatey, fruity flavour. Mix it in an espresso martini this Valentine's Day, or sip slowly on the rocks.
Koko Kanu Jamaican rum
Transport your lover to hotter climes with this heavenly Jamaican coconut rum from Koko Kanu. Well, it's more reasonably priced than a romantic holiday to the Caribbean! Serve it over ice or with your favourite mixer for a silky treat.
Liverpool Gin rose petal
Why give someone flowers when you can get them a gin that tastes like roses? Having launched their original Liverpool Gin in 2016, the Merseyside distillers have released a special rose petal infusion just in time for Valentine's Day. With natural floral notes, the gin not only tastes of rosewater but has a sharp and slightly spicy flavour. Tastes sensational on its own or with elderflower tonic.
