M&S slaps buying limit on Christmas gin drink after customers go wild for it
An incredible boozy Christmas drink is in such high demand that Marks and Spencer are limiting how many bottles you can buy.
The festive light-up snow globe gin comes in yummy clementine or rhubarb flavour.
It's selling point is that it contains 23-carat edible gold leaf and it looks simply fantastic, almost too good to drink – well, almost.
M&S' latest Christmas special is flying off the shelves and into baskets right now.
So much so that they have had to take direct action so there's enough to go around.

Shoppers are going to extreme lengths to find the 'must-have' new light-up snow globe gin.
Some have "spent weeks" trying to get hold of it, only for new stock to be snapped up almost as quickly as it is put out, reports My London.
Overseas customers are even asking for the product to be shipped over, and it's reportedly being bought and sold on the black market for much higher prices.
According to one M&S Facebook group, shoppers have had a lot of trouble getting their hands on the product.
"Hubby trying to get one of these for weeks," one shopper said.
"Went this morning, they told him they had a delivery on Wednesday of 1,500….all gone."
"Again another failing I've been trying to buy it for over a month!!" another added.
Even those who have managed to get hold of it had to show resilience and dedication first.
"I got mine in Blackburn this morning after going in every day for over a week, thanks Blackburn," one shopper said.
And the craze has travelled even further afield.
"Just 18 Pound?" one fan said, "Its possible zu shippping to Germany?"
The gin liqueur comes in two flavours – clementine and new offering, rhubarb.
Both contain 23-carat edible gold leaf which creates a sparkly effect, which dazzles when shaken in the light-up bottle – just like a snow globe.
