When you raise a glass this holiday season, make sure it's with a drink worth toasting.
Distillers often debut limited-edition bottling and other special releases in the fall, angling for a spot on your gift list for family, friends or colleagues. (Or, OK, just your shopping list. About 60 percent of shoppers take advantage of holiday offers to self-gift, buying $126.68 worth of presents for themselves, reports the National Retail Federation.)
These gift-worthy bottles won't disappoint, whether your budget is under $30 or as much as $133.
