Corporate Gift Ideas For Clients And Partners

Gifting Ideas For Clients And Partners

Everyone loves being appreciated, especially when a gift is included; we are always told actions are better than words. It is that time of the year when we get to appreciate and show gratitude to those who have been by our side through thick and thin, those who have held our hands and encouraged us to keep on, those who cheered us on, and those who have made the year worthwhile. We obviously do not need to, but we want to.

As part of the festive gifting, corporates are also not left behind. Companies have been known to appreciate their business partners, clients, and also employees. The most common form of gifting is drinks. Gifting a drink is really personal: shows interest in the person, shows friendship and kinship.

Here are the ideal drinks that would work perfectly as corporate gifts.

Premium Drinks

Premium drinks are high-end, top-shelf drinks. These are drinks that are particularly suited for gifting your partners, clients, best-performing managers and employees. 

Macallan Oscuro

Macallan Oscuro

The Macallan Oscuro is drawn exclusively from oak casks seasoned with Oloroso Sherry. An exceptionally high proportion of these are first fill, which endows the whisky with a rich, deep colour and intense flavour.

When the casks are at the peak of maturation, the whisky is gently reduced to 46.5% alcohol by volume with natural spring water drawn from boreholes deep under The Macallan Estate. 

It is then matured in slumbering casks for at least six months, allowing the flavours to ‘marry’ and harmonize. It undergoes no further strength reduction and is non-chill filtered at ambient room temperature before being bottled for your enjoyment.

Johnnie Walker King George V

Johnnie Walker King George V

In 1820, John Walker started out in business with a single small shop, but he always had big ambitions. Just over a century later, John Walker & Sons was awarded a Royal Warrant by King George V.

John Walker & Sons King George V commemorates the granting of the Royal Warrant on 1 January 1934.

It is created using only the finest whiskies from distilleries that were operating during George’s twenty-five-year reign (1910 – 1936). They are blended together to reflect the distinctive Johnnie Walker style of the era.

It is an opulent and regal blend. Sensuous, layered and intense, the John Walker & Sons King George V is a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas. Hints of roasted nuts, dark chocolate and an imposing sweet smokiness combine elegantly with suggestions of honey, citrus orange and rose petals. This is an extremely complex luxury whisky.

Enjoy it in any way you like, but we recommend it neat or over ice.

Blue Label

Johnnie Walker Blue Label

Johnnie Walker Blue Label is an unrivalled masterpiece – an exquisite combination of Scotland’s rarest and most exceptional whiskies. Only one in every ten thousand casks has the elusive quality, character and flavour to deliver the remarkable signature taste. This is definitely an extraordinary whisky for extraordinary occasions.

Nose: Take in the wonderfully mellow, rounded nose – busting with dry smokiness artfully mixed with the sweetness of raisins.

Palate: Serving a velvety combination of vanilla, honey and rose petals – before broadening out to include a zesty orange flavour with notes of hazelnut, sherry and dark chocolate.

Finish: Signing off with a rich and luxuriously long finish, which showcases Johnnie Walker’s trademark smokiness in the most sophisticated way.

Find a new way to enjoy your favourite Johnnie Walker whisky by exploring these Johnnie Walker whisky cocktails. Serve a measure of Scotch over ice, topped up with soda for a refreshing and universally popular Highball. You can also combine your Johnnie Walker whisky of choice with sweet vermouth and a dash of bitters.

Glenmorangie Signet

Glenmorangie Signet

The Glenmorangie Signet is distilled twice through Glenmorangie’s copper-pot stills, by a team of 16 distillers known as the ‘Sixteen Men of Tain. It is subsequently matured in bespoke American virgin oak casks before it is bottled at 46% and receives no chill-filtration.

While it carries no age statement, it has an element of some of the distillery’s oldest and rarest stocks, ranging from 35 to 40 years old, in this Highland single malt.

This edition takes its name from the ornate square design that adorns most Glenmorangie bottles. The signet itself originated from the Hilton of Cadboll Stone, a Pictish artefact that dates back to around the year 800 AD.

 Nose: The nose begins with chocolate raisins and sugared mixed peels. Toasted spices, bread and butter pudding, and golden syrup complement these aromas, while a note of Angostura bitters lingers beneath.

Palate: Sweet, syrupy cinnamon and drying malt lead, before a suggestion of Terry’s Chocolate Orange rises. The backdrop is filled with tobacco leaves and freshly roasted espresso beans, with a little honey-roasted cashew.

Finish: The finish dries and becomes pleasantly rubbery, as a touch of truffle oil emerges.

Royal Salute 21 Years

Born as a tribute to a queen, this blended whisky is crafted with a desire for perfection. The story of Royal Salute is unlike any other whisky.

To this day, Royal Salute has marked each significant event in the lives of the British Monarchy and is unique in having only ever used whiskies aged at least 21 years in its blends.

Courvoisier XO

Rich and full-bodied, yet still exceptionally smooth, this luxurious XO contains long-aged Eaux-de-vie from Grande & Petite Champagne for grace & flavour, plus a little Borderies for structure and depth.

X.O. (or extra old) Cognacs require a minimum of six years of ageing for the youngest cognac in the blend, with the average age running 20 years or older. 

All Cognac houses maintain inventories of old vintage Cognacs to use in blending these top-of-the-line brands. The oldest Cognacs are removed from their casks in time and stored in glass demijohns (large jugs) to prevent further loss from evaporation and to limit excessively woody and astringent flavours.

Nose: with a honeyed floral bouquet highlighted by violets. 

Palate: is velvety, and somewhat oily, with candied orange peel, vanilla, and blackberries, shifting towards the back with bitter notes of cacao and pistachio shells. 

Finish: offers menthol and spicy, astringent oak, along with dark chocolate-covered raspberries
