At Grant Macdonald we are usually firm believers that Christmas arrangements, decorations and all things festive belong firmly in the month of December. However, while we are locked down for the month of November, perhaps this year it would be wise to reconsider and make some Christmas gift selections a little earlier than usual... just in case of unexpected delays. We’re shipping all over the world with premium courier services and so we’re happy to announce business as usual with no extended lead times, however it’s always best to be prepared. To that end, here is our first gift recommendation to get you in a festive mood, a little earlier than normal.
For Him… Paragon Bar Set
Every man of a certain age has a secret wish for a fine cut glass crystal decanter. Whether this is for an after dinner digestif with the father-in-law or a romantic nightcap with the lady in his life, most discerning men love a decanter set. They are heirlooms, traditions, and if the man in your life doesn’t have one, it’s a wonderful Christmas gift. Our Paragon Set elevates these icons of barware to a refined level, with an open worked sterling silver stopper that is a fascinating object and talking point, matched by the finest hand blown lead crystal.
Why is the decanter and tumbler so popular? Maybe it’s those iconic Ratpack movies with Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin crooning with a tumbler of bourbon in hand, or James Bond helping himself to a nip of single malt on a Blofeld’s yacht. Whatever the association, from brooding Bruce Wayne to Citizen Kane, the cut glass crystal decanter and tumblers are part of Hollywood history. The barware of icons, and the perfect gift for fathers, grandfathers, husbands and anyone with a taste for fine spirits.
