Instead of gifting gins that can be found in any other bars, try Nordes gin!

This gin is helmed by the scent of lemongrass and lavender which is followed by the refreshing taste of mint leaves and black tea and finished by just a hint of familiarity in the form of juniper.
The legendary cognac Martell Cordon Bleu is an international emblem of excellence. Ideal for special occasions, the taste of this French cognac is an explosion of spicy fruit notes and elegant richness.
