Gingerbread Gin. Yep, the ultimate festive gin has arrived thanks to Melbourne distillery The Craft & Co, but that doesn’t mean you need a national holiday to drink the stuff. In fact, we’d recommend it any day of the year. 

For those not familiar with the gingerbread infused bottle of botanical, the stuff actually dropped back in 2019 and sold out damn fast. Taking note of its popularity—and Melbourne’s tendency toward a drink during these trying times—Craft & Co have whipped up another batch of the stuff.

The Craft & Co’s Gingerbread gin is packed with festive ingredients such as macerated ginger root, smashed nutmeg, cinnamon and tonka beans. The balance here makes it a versatile drop, tasty enough to take it neat, otherwise mix it in with a blood orange soda or double down with ginger beer.

Anyone who prefers a creamier cocktail can have a crack at mixing up a Gingerbread Gin Alexander, or, go all out with The Craft & Co’s gingerbread egg nog recipe.

The Craft & Co’s Gingerbread Gin is available directly from the source, and from liquor retailers like Dan Murphy’s.  

Now that picnics are back, drink it outdoors and pair it with this premium picnic box.
