The G&G guide to boozy Christmas gifts

It’s beginning to look a lot like cocktail season!

Gift-giving season is here, which means it’s time to cellar-brate your sip-happy family and friends by buying them everything from Christmas gin puddings to advent calendars full of wine!

If you need help sourcing the perfect holiday spirits, let us point you in the right direction…

Four Pillars | Christmas Gin Puddings

Who doesn’t love their gin with a festive dose of Christmas carbs? That’s exactly what’s on offer by Australian distillery Four Pillars, whose $25 Christmas gin puddings are made with gin-steamed oranges and a dash of their annual Christmas gin! Bursting with botanical flavour, be sure to purchase your pudding before they’re all sold out!

Once Upon A Bottle | Palate Passport Wine Packs

If you have a friend whose love for wine knows no bounds (or borders), look no further than Once Upon A Bottle’s Palate Passport wine packs! Featuring tasty vinos spanning from Barossa Valley to Mornington Peninsula, and even Italian sips in the limited-edition ‘Christmas in Italy’ option, these packs boast six red, white, and rosé wines each for $136–$190. 

The Butcher’s Friend | Chess & Backgammon Set

Perfect for your pal who binge-watched The Queen’s Gambit in one sitting, The Butcher’s Friend Chess & Backgammon Set is definitely one to checkers out! The gorgeous wooden chess set doubles as a backgammon board and comes paired with cabernet sauvignon AND rich shiraz, meaning double the fun for just $50.

City Winery | Wine Advent Calendar 

It’s the advent calendar we never knew we needed, until City Winery came along and made all our gift-giving dreams come true! Coming in at $179, this calendar features six of their best Gerler red, white, and rosé gift-wrapped wines that are the perfect presents for family and friends. 

Old Curiosity | At Home Botanical Tasting Kit

Gifting a gin without botanicals is like putting up a Christmas tree without lights! Luckily, Old Curiosity is here to save the day with their three-in-one Botanical Tasting Kit that features hand-crafted Damask Rose, Lavender and Echidna, and Wild premium gins. Nab it for your gin-loving pal now for the tasty price of $35. 

Sit Stay Society | Collector’s Set

Hit two birds with one Shiraz—not to mention Ruby’s rosé, Max’s Cabernet, and Violet’s Grüner Veltliner—with this pup-friendly, palate-pleasing present! Sit Stay Society has released just in time for Christmas a delish collector’s set that boasts four tasty vinos and complimentary frisbee for just $35, making it the perfect gift for man AND their best friend. 

With Christmas shopping now made easy, the only hard bit is resisting the urge to buy one of those wine calendars for ourselves…
