We have great news for anyone who loves a bit of Christmas spirit – our Christmas selection has landed and it’s bigger & better than ever! 

Included is our Gin Boozy Bon Bons, which are sure to take every festive celebration to the next level. Each pack of six bonbons features a 30ml bottle of Australian craft gin, making this twist on the traditional Christmas cracker the perfect way to surprise and delight guests. They won’t find any bad jokes or plastic toys inside, just delicious iterations of this much loved spirit! 

Brand new to Gintonica are Gingle Bells Baubles. Add an extra gin-gle to your Christmas tree with these beautiful glass balls that are filled with premium Australian dry gin. The gin in each of the baubles are then infused with a different botanical (unusual seeds, flowers or fruit) to create an extra layer of natural flavour and colour.

We have also launched the highly anticipated 6th edition of our renowned Perfect Pour 50ml Advent Calendar, which is available as part of our 2022 Ginmas Club Membership, or as a standalone product. Developed specially for super fans of the spirit, Ginmas Club members not only receive this year’s Advent, but also a copy of our Founder, David Box’s book, “Australian Gin” and a 15% discount. 

Furthermore, in celebration of our milestone fifth birthday, and due to overwhelming demand from long standing customers and gin lovers, we are proud to have re-released our first-ever Advent Calendar from 2017. Featuring the original, sustainably produced art deco packaging and gin botanical illustrations by local artist, Liene Drulle, this Advent is the ultimate collector’s item and is sure to run out soon.

In more exciting news, our 5th Edition Perfect Pour 50ml Advent Calendar, and 1st Edition 30ml Advent Calendar, the younger sibling of the iconic Perfect Pour product are also available this year. 

Each of these calendars feature 24 locally produced gins, with no one product featuring the same selection, and the same gins never repeated in 50ml. This ensures a unique tasting experience year after year. They showcase a vast array of Australia’s top gin distillers and distilleries, including renowned, award-winning brands, and emerging producers. 

In the spirit of the festive season, the exact gins contained in these calendars will remain a mystery, with giftees invited to enjoy a daily gin reveal to sip and savour from 1-24 December. The bottles feature bespoke mini-me distillery labels, and each calendar (apart from the original, which has its own unique packaging) comes complete with its own art deco style box, tasting notes and serving suggestions. 

Commenting on this year’s festive range, David Box, Founder, Gintonica says: “Australia’s craft gin scene is constantly evolving, and in my opinion, is one of the world’s most creative and forward thinking. This year we really wanted to highlight this, by showcasing the extensive offering available to Aussies, and the unique techniques and approaches our local distillers utilise to craft truly memorable gins.

“Whether it’s selecting a thoughtful gift for a loved one, choosing a less traditional Kris Kringle present for a colleague, or surprising guests at Christmas lunch with our boozy bon bons, we’ve got something for everyone this year. In true Gintonica style, it’s our way of wishing you all a very Merry Ginmas!”

Gintonica’s Christmas range is now available online HERE with Advent calendars delivered by mid November.
