We’ve got all the ingredients to add a dash of magic to your festivities this year.

Let’s raise a glass to Christmas 2020. It’s been one heck of a ride getting here, but like a true Christmas miracle, this festive season looks set to deliver the fun-filled celebrations we’ve been dreaming of all year.

Fine food and drink are the hallmarks of the silly season, and while we’ve never let a lack of snow get in the way of the great Australian Christmas, traditional mulled beverages just don’t cut it this time of the year.

For most of us, summertime celebrations are spent beside the pool or the barbie where ice-cold beer and cocktails are the stars of the show. So whether it’s a sparkling peach bellini, sour cherry martini, or a limited-edition pink gin & tonic that jingles your bells, we’ve got all the ingredients to make yours a magical one.

Black Label Christmas gin
Born through blending vibrant Christmas flavours with our award-winning Rubus Patch Gin, this is a gin you’ll wish someone would gift to you.
Our Black Label Gin has vivacious notes of festive fruits and elderflower paired with homegrown raspberries, juniper, and a trio of citrus. And like all our gins, this one is balanced with pristine alpine water and native botanicals found in our own backyard — the Snowy Mountains.

You can enjoy this lusciously pink gin over ice or with a quality tonic. But the best way to enjoy a festive fruit-forward gin? In a big glass of our Holy Hoity Toity cocktail while you lounge around in a sun-bathed beach chair. Heaven! Serve to your party guests or be the best gift-giver and surprise a loved one with a bottle under the Christmas tree. Just remember, you deserve one too.

Holy Hoity Toity
Like a classic gin and tonic but with a festive twist. Our wildbrumby Black Label Gin is the centrepiece of a cocktail with all the sleigh bells and whistles. Sweet, fruity and paired perfectly with a traditional pavlova – your Christmas party guests will be coming back for seconds.
