Whether she’s into bubbly champagnes, strong mezcals or flirty liqueurs, have your mum celebrating in style this Sunday. Here are some we’d recommend, including some bestsellers, some newbies and some all-round 31D HQ favourites…
BLOOM’s collection of gins and liqueurs are really a great gifting choice for anyone you love. Whether you go for their Jasmine & Rose, Classic or Lemon & Elderflower, their signature floral flavours are fragrant and sweet without being sickly. Plus, their bottles legitimately look like trophies… an excellent accompaniment to your ‘best mum in the world’ card.
If you’re splur-gin (sorry), why not consider going for Perrier Jouet’s Belle Epoque champagne, whose bright, fresh palate is literally a floral bouquet (who needs actual flowers, right? Go for gold!).
Or, for a mum as rare as yours, why not go for a craft gin? Both London-distilled, Graveney Gin is super smooth, while Little Bird is bursting with flavour and body. If gin isn’t her thing, George Clooney and Rande Gerber’s smoky mezcal might be: It’s complex and herbal, with a long and silky finish.
Hendrick’s enchanting new limited-edition, Midsummer Solstice is made up of a careful (and secret!) blend of floral botanicals. Delightfully refreshing and natural, this one will be flying off the shelves soon - so get it while you can!

If your mam/mom/mum likes her drinks a little less boozy, I’d recommend Belsazar’s vermouths - particularly their Rosé. It’s dry, fruity and thanks to its pink grapefruit infusion, comes with a slight kick. And no fancy garnishes required - simply top with soda water and drop in some raspberries if you have some!
Or have a look at some of Lixir’s mixers - which are excellent as standalone drinks as well as with your favourite gin, vodka - or even dark spirit. Their range has some pretty interesting flavours too.
So there you have it. Our pic of the bunch - and trust me, it’s a huge bunch. Click here for our full list - and hopefully, you’ll have her present sorted faster than you can say ‘gin’!
