These ornaments really put the 'merry' into "having yourself a merry little Christmas". Talk about your warming glow! 

The average Christmas tree is usually decked out in stars, baubles, and miniature angels or Santa Claus figurines. However, here's a novel idea for the whiskey lover in your life.

The Lakes Distillery in Cumbria has the perfect solution for a decoration that's both practical and aesthetically pleasing: clear baubles filled with your favorite amber liquid.

As Christmas is traditionally a time to "eat, drink, and be merry" - as the saying goes - this ornament manages to tie together two of those things while also doubling up as a conversation starter for guests. 

The ornament, aptly named "The One", houses an impressive 20cl of 40% proof whiskey. It can be bought in gift sets of six - should you feel like sharing - or by the individual bauble.

Not a whiskey fan? Fear not - there's also salted caramel flavored vodka or gin jazzed up with cinnamon and raspberry. 

There's just one thing left to note: don't, whatever you do, leave this decoration dangling too close to fairy lights or candles!

The distillery has also just announced new boozy Christmas crackers - which house a perfectly-sized treat - for adults only, of course.

Would you buy this ornament for yourself or for someone in your life? Let us know in the comments below!
