“Mother” may seem a simple word, but it carries significant meaning. A mother gives us life, helps us take our first steps, sees us off from the first day of school, til we head off for college; comforts us through our first heartbreak, and prepares us to one day become a parent.

This Mother’s Day, let DOWNTOWN help you find the perfect gift for Mom!

New, from the Wicklow Mountains, Ireland, is Glendalough Rose Gin. Carefully-tended flowers from the rose garden are slowly vapor distilled with wild roses and plants from around the distillery to make this an intensely floral gin. Two varieties of roses are used: the rare and elusive Wild Rose from the Wicklow mountains and the large, fragrant Heritage Rose. After distilling, the gin is then further infused with even more roses to deepen the flavors and give it its lovely pink hue ($34.99).
