Our Host – David Box

David Box is the man behind Gintonica and has dedicated himself to becoming the gin envoy of the Australian distilling movement. His love of gin started with his sundowner ritual of a G&T, and he soon found himself seeking out micro and regional distilleries to learn about their hand-crafted production and centuries old traditions.

Gintonica’s vision is to be the central resource for everything gin, from botanicals to recipes, pairings to makers, and everything in between. Gintonica curates Australian Craft Gins in 50ml bottles, gift packs and the hugely popular Aussie Gin Advent Calendar.

Gin boasts a rich history across the UK and Europe, and we are loving how Australian artisan producers are putting a unique twist on this classic spirit.

There are now over 500 gin distilleries in Australia and these creative folks are pushing the gin flavour boundaries with the introduction of native plants and herbs, such as lemon myrtle, finger limes, eucalyptus, strawberry gum, wattleseed, and so much more.
