A Rare French Holiday Gift

copperbayToday’s technology means we’ve all gone global and there are very few things that can’t be shipped directly to your door with the touch of a few buttons (and a credit card!) While this might make life easier, it makes finding truly original and unique presents to bring back from Paris a little harder. Wanna know what to buy that can’t be found easily, affordably or at all outside of Paris? Read on…

Local cocktail bar CopperBay collaborated with the Distillerie de Paris to create their own brand of gin. While you can find the original version at the Distillerie de Paris website and the bar itself, there’s also a Navy piconStrength version that you can only get at the bar. Definitely something your drinks-minded friends won’t have back home! As a bonus, the bar also has a small selection of CopperBay branded products like their cool nautical duffel bag. Cost: 49 euros.

The old-school French aperitif Amer Picon is next to impossible to find outside of France, meaning Cocktaillians go crazy for it and will be most appreciative of anyone willing to lug home a bottle in their bags. There are 4 versions including the black label, club, citron and biere – with the last being the easiest to find. Cost: 11 euros!
