Do you know what’s better than chocolate in your advent calendar? Gin & Whisky! After what was a hugely stressful year for most Melburnians, we think everyone needs their spirits lifted. Enter Gintonica & WhiskyRocks. These fine curators of Australian craft gin & whisky are making the 2021 festive season a spirited affair and upping the game with the release of their boozy Advent Calendars and 12 Days Tasting Packs.
Yes, you heard us right – BOOZY ADULT ADVENT CALENDARS! This is the fifth year the team have been producing an advent calendar that includes a mystery selection of award winning tipples, along with some great new finds (that you might just need to order a full bottle of). We might be on Santa’s naughty list, because we had a sneak peak of what to expect on some of the days and let us tell you, you won’t be disappointed! Expect a few classic styles, as well as some unusual gins. Spoilers: blueberry + lavender gin is delicious.
Gin isn’t the only spirit many of these Aussie distillers produce, with plenty of premium whiskies that give international brands a run for their money also being released. That’s why this season the team decided to also launch a premium Aussie whisky advent calendar.
WhiskyRocks is shining a light on these world class drams being produced in our own backyard. Similar to the gin advents, these mystery drams are presented in beautifully designed boxes packed full of mini labelled bottles featuring a wide selection of different whiskies. Drinkers are in for a treat, whilst possibly discovering their new favourite Aussie craft spirit. We love that online tasting notes and serving suggestions will also be available for each bottle, so your loved ones (or let’s be real, you) will know how to make each spirit into the perfect pour.
The final cherry on top is that anyone who buys a gin Advent Calendar via Gintonica.com.au goes into the draw to win the ‘Mother of all Drinks Trolleys’ – 24 full sized bottles of each gin featured in the Advent Calendar! We’re also keeping an eye on their Boozy Bon Bons.
Gin and whisky lovers can sip their way to Christmas, whilst enjoying & supporting Australian Craft Distillers. Remember to order asap so you can get this in time for your first drink on December 1st! Happy hour will be extra happy this year.
