Last Minute Gift Ideas For Procrastinators

//Last Minute Gift Ideas For Procrastinators

If you’re like some members of our team (*cough*Kyle*cough*) you may have recently realized that Christmas is next week and you’ll be cutting it dangerously close on any gifts you buy online…

Maybe you’re scrambling to find some awesome local gifts. Maybe you’re more prepared than Kyle, but you’re still looking for one last gift, or something to bring to a family gathering. We’ve got six ideas for the spirit lover on your list!

1.)  Spirit Bottles

Lifted Spirits Bright Gin and Vodka

Give the gift of great cocktails with our Bright Gin and Vodka. Not only are they both proudly distilled in Kansas City, but our red winter wheat is grown in Wellsville, Kansas.  Our Vodka has body and flavor that makes a delightfully balanced cocktail or tastes great by itself!  The Bright Gin is a bright, crisp, accessible spirit that appeals to both the gin newcomer and the long-time gin aficionado. Both make great gifts for the spirit lover on your list. Even better? Buy two of our spirit bottles and get two KC Map glasses for free!

 2.)  Reserve One Of the First Bottles of Our New Releases!

Want to give the coolest gift in KC? Lifted Spirits has two new spirits coming out soon!

Barrel Reserve Gin

Barrel Reserve Gin

We took Wicket & Peg bourbon barrels, lent them to KC Wineworks to rest their Apple Cider, then filled those barrels with our Bright Gin. The result? A uniquely warm, full-bodied spirit that boasts flavors of vanilla and apples, along with the botanicals from our Bright Gin. Reserve your bottle online or stop by the Tasting Room to learn more!

Kansas City AbsintheTraditional Absinthe

Yes, our Absinthe is finally almost ready! Be among the first to try Kansas City’s only Absinthe! Whether you want to experience Absinthe the traditional way or enhance your cocktail with this green spirit, you can reserve a bottle online or at Lifted Spirits!

3.)  KC Map Glasses

Crossroads Sour

Show your Kansas City spirit even when enjoying your favorite cocktails at home.  Our KC map glasses showcase a map of the famous Crossroads Art District, home to Lifted Spirits distillery.  The glasses come in two sizes, rocks and double rocks, and would make a great addition to any home bar. 

 4.) Infusion KitsLifted Spirits Infusion Kit

We love experimenting with our Spirits. One of our favorite ways to spice up a cocktail is with an infusion.  For the holidays, we have infusion kits available in the tasting room!  We have chosen our two favorite holiday flavors, Orange Hibiscus Cardamom and Orange, Clove, Vanilla and have done the hard work of gathering all of the ingredients for you. With this fun and interactive gift, your cocktail aficionado can assemble the infusion themselves, then sit back and watch the magic happen!

 5.)  Events

Kansas City Whiskey Event

Lifted Spirits has some great events coming up in 2018.  Have an avid Whiskey fan in the family? Buy them a ticket to “Around the World in Eight Whiskeys.” We will explore 8 different whiskeys from around the world and learn all about how they came to be! Buy your tickets online or in the tasting room.

 6.) Gift Cards

Lifted Spirits Gift Cards

Love all of the Lifted Spirits swag but don’t know what to get for that hard-to-buy-for loved-one?  We also have gift cards! Let them decide whether they want to come in for cocktails and a tour, buy some Kansas City spirits to take home, or attend one of our fun and educational events.


Our tasting room is open Wednesday-Friday from 4-11p and Saturday from 12-11p. Stop by and let us help you finish your holiday shopping (and enjoy a cocktail!) Then relax and enjoy the holidays with your loved ones!
