Christmas cheer with the best from Bath Ales

When it comes to Christmas, only the finest food and drink will do. Whether you’re searching for a special gift or looking for the ideal drink to serve to guest, Bath Ales has a fantastic range to suit every pallet and pocket.


This year the brewer has launched a very special new addition to its premium Sulis Collection – a superior English Single Malt called Gem Aqua Vitae – perfect for those looking for a different gift this year.


The spirit uses the finest ingredients and has been distilled five times at The English Spirit Distillery using wort, the product of ‘mashing’ barley during the brewing process.


The final result is a delicious, malty spirit which is smooth and light with flavours of clove, liquorice and vanilla, an aroma of honeysuckle and silk-coated finish, which will delight drinkers.

Gem Aqua Vitae is a very limited edition available on the Bath Ales website (£39 for 50cl bottle at 42% VOL).


For those who live for great beer then the brewer’s flagship award-winning brand, Gem, can be purchased in gift packs to make the perfect present.


Gem (VOL 4.8%) is a quintessentially English beer with a rich aroma of hops and malt, and a bitter-sweet finish.  Choose from two bottles of Gem and a goblet (£10.55)* or simply a quartet of bottles at £10.99*.


For a more varied selection try one of the gift packs which include a bottle each of Gem, Barnsey, Wild Hare & Dark Side (£10.99)*.


For a special tipple to enjoy during the festive season, then Bath Ales’ seasonal craft beer Festivity** is made especially for the occasion. A delicious porter, with hints of rum mingling with coffee and vanilla flavours, Festivity is the perfect winter warmer.


Brewed at 5.0% and available in cask and bottle, Festivity can be teamed with shellfish dishes, chocolate, berry or coffee desserts, so ideal to serve at Christmas parties, a family get-together, or simply enjoyed on its own.


For these gifts and more visit and choose from the diverse range. These items and many more can also be purchased in the new Bath Ales store in Warmley where visitors will enjoy a 10% discount.



* P&P will be added to online purchases. For Bath Ales product there is a 10% discount on all purchases for customers who visit the brewery shop at Hare House in Warmley.

** Festivity is available from early November until stocks run out.
