The Holiday Gift Finder 2013: Top-Shelf-Worthy Booze (and a Few Mixers)


Liquor is like the gift card of the food lovers’ holiday haul: universal and eminently practical.

That’s why we’ve compiled the season’s most exciting bottles (arranged by price), most of which are new to shelves this year. Get ready for things like aged gin, cultish rye, and toe-curlingly bitter liqueurs, plus bottled mixers fit for a typography nerd, and a subscription service that should keep your giftee lit up like the star of Bethlehem all year long.
