Liquor Snob Holiday Gift Guide 2008

liquor_snob_blogad_gg.jpgThe holiday season is upon us again, and this year we decided to prepare for it. We picked up a cup and some football pads for braving the Black Friday sales, and we have multiple flasks to help dull the pain of dealing with the thronging hordes. Then we remembered (just like every year) that we could just shop online and get stuff that's just as good without all the hassle, so we decided to comb our archives for the best products we featured this year. That way we can shop for everything from a remote-controlled beer cooler to the greatest video game setup we've ever seen, all from the comfort of our own home.

We've compiled a list of our top 10 favorites (in no particular order) here; find everything else after the jump.

1. Big, Bad Breathalyzer Roundup

2. Cool, Cooler, Coolest

3. Jager Tap Machine

4. Keychain Corkscrew

5. R2D2 Ice Bucket

6. Full-Bottle Wine Glass

7. Mad Science Bartending Set

8. 6 Gallon Beverage Dispenser

9. Faberge Martini Shaker

10. Headmaster Electric Keg Pump

Our other favorites from the year are below, most of which will end up as gifts for our friends and family. We tried to weed out anything you couldn't actually buy or was currently unavailable; we'll keep the list updated and add more items as the holiday season progresses and new things come to light.
