2023 Australian Gin Advent Calendar
30-58% ABV / 25x30mL
Our seventh annual Australian Gin Advent Calendar takes drinkers on another adventure through the local gin scene, with over two dozen gins inside waiting to be discovered.
Whack open a new slot every day to reveal a total of 25 Australian gins, produced by distilleries in every state of Australia. We've chosen a range of classic dry, navy strength, barrel aged and exotic flavoured gins to showcase the full flavour gamut of gin styles available. This year there are also a few obscure drops being featured, so you're in for a treat.
The calendar comes with access to our online tasting notes. Jump on the website using the code provided to reveal interesting facts about each featured distillery and gin you're about to taste.
The entire calendar weighs over 3kg, so we recommend placing it on a secure flat surface, out of reach of those under the influence of its contents, at least until the next day. For those who had last year's version of this calendar, you'll be glad to know there are no repeats in this year's edition.
This year we teamed up with Negin Maddock, an illustrator and printmaker based in Sydney, to showcase ‘Curlew Sandpiper’, a linocut print. Linocut is a form of printmaking referred to as relief printing. Starting with an illustration which is transferred to a lino block, the image is slowly and carefully carved into the block. Ink is then applied to the block using a roller called a brayer. The block is then pressed onto paper to transfer the image.
These Gin Advent Calendars are shipped in plain brown cardboard shipping boxes to maximise the surprise factor. We never include invoices within orders.
We won’t totally spoil the surprise for you, but here’s a sneak peek into just some of the gins being showcased within:
- "Lemon Myrtle & Cinnamon Gin" by Lisandras Distillery
- "Bushfire Smoked Gin" by Mt Uncle Distillery
- "Untamed Gin" by Furneaux Distillery
- "Christmas Acorus" by Sin Gin Distillery
- "Chinotto Gin" by Full Circle Spirits
- "Victoria Garden Gin" by Kilderkin Distillery
- And many more ;)
Giving a gift?
As a neat and somewhat quirky addition, why not include a custom gift note on a Possum Greeting Card for an extra $5?
It's an advent calendar so it hasn't been started yet and it was a gift so I won't be using it myself
I’m sorry I can’t rate this product as it’s only November
We ordered this years gin advent calendar after some friends raved about it last year. It was here in a few days and looks great. As its not December yet we haven't cracked into the gins but we cant wait... Highly recommended
