We asked a booze expert which luxury gin, rum and whisky are most worth your hard-earned cash
You don’t often splash out on spirits - they’re quite low on the priority list, after all, and you wouldn’t really know where to start. But what if, just this once, you were prepared to pay big money for a bottle? You know, a real showstopper that’ll have your house guests cradling it with awe and exclaiming ‘Wow, nice one, this.’
If you feel so inclined, we’ve got you covered - we asked Selfridges Wine & Spirits Buying Manager Terry Threlfall to pick his five best bottles of spirits worth £50, so you don’t get short-changed when taking the plunge.

“The ingredients in this are absolutely top-notch. They use 47 different botanicals, including cranberries, which you don’t see in gin very often.”
“Rum is becoming the next whisky in terms of age statements, and Diplomatico really pushes the boat out with that. A nice alternative for a whisky or bourbon drinker.”
