1. Paxton Hot Chocolate 

Whether you want a delicious drink on a chilly evening, or a warming cuppa on Guy Fawkes' Night, Paxton Chocolate's delicious handmade hot chocolates are the perfect pick-me-up when the cold snap bites.

Made with a little gourmet cocoa powder and the same fabulous hazelnut and pistachio flavoured Belgian white chocolate the chocolatier uses to make its delicious handmade chocolates, these chocolatey drinks are a taste sensation.

Available in six delicious flavours including the brand new Matcha Green Tea and Sea Salt Caramel, Hazelnut and Pistachio, Orange and Earl Grey, Sea Salt, Espresso and the vegan-friendly Spiced Dark, these hot chocolates are luxuriously-rich, chocolatey and indulgent.

2. Turmerlicious 

A delicious hot chocolate drink packed with your optimum daily amount of the super food turmeric along with other healthy and natural ingredients….and it tastes delicious!

Free from preservatives, artificial flavours, refined sugar, GMO products, nuts, eggs and gluten. Maggie Howell first developed the drink when she heard about the benefits of turmeric - she started adding different flavours and soon came up with combinations that the whole family loved. Choose from Chocolate Latte or Chili Chocolate. When the family started drinking it regularly Maggie noticed subtle changes – no sniffles, and the whole family had more energy!

The chocolate options are dairy free with a delicate blend of cocoa powder, coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, a hint of black pepper, skimmed milk and coconut blossom nectar.

You don’t taste the turmeric. It’s a great tasting healthy replacement hot chocolate! Also available in Vanilla and Ginger flavours.

200g packet - £6.95

3. Two Birds Spirits After Dinner Mint and Vodka

Redefining the luxury of an after-dinner tipple, Two Birds Spirits makes a delicious After

Dinner Mint and English Vodka at its distillery in the rural town of Market Harborough in Leicestershire. 

Made using the finest British ingredients, this vodka delivers a bountiful hit of chocolate to begin with and then rounds off with the refreshing taste of peppermint.  It is divine served straight over ice or even poured over vanilla ice-cream for an extra- 

indulgent dessert.

For a longer drink, try serving 25ml with cherry juice and garnishes with a glace cherry. It tastes just like Black Forest Gateau and will be a hit at Christmas parties. 

Priced @ £13 for 20cl or £32 for 70cl and at 29%abv, it is the perfect stocking filler or a mighty fine gift. 

Two Birds’ countryside spirits are available from small retailers all over the country or directly from their website at
