5 Christmas Gift Ideas for Drink Lovers

Drink, Drinks Guide, Food Guide, Melbourne, Sydney / 7 December 2016

For the friends and family who love a good drink!

Christmas has crept up on us again! Meaning ’tis the season to crack down on your Christmas present list. Don’t panic! We’ve composed a list of 5 gift ideas that are perfect for the renowned drink lovers of the family.

1. Archie Rose Tailored Spirits

Archie Rose have opened their cellar to you. Allowing you to tailor make your own Vodka, Whisky or Gin. Start off choosing your botanicals with step-by-step instructions and recommendations. Adjust the strength to get the taste just right. Then create your custom, personalised label for the perfect finish to the perfect drink. This is a great gift for someone that you know has a particular taste for vodka, gin or whiskey. The process is done entirely online and is shipped between 5-10 days. You can also head into their distillery in Rosebery for the complete experience. Get in quick! Because cut offs for Christmas orders end at midnight this Sunday 11 December.



2. Rum Club Australia Subscription 

For those who love their fine liquor, so much so that they need a monthly subscription, here’s their perfect Christmas gift. Melbourne’s The Rum Diary Bar, have a special Rum Club. This subscription delivers 3 sample sized drinks per month, Australia wide. If there’s a bottle your loved one particularly enjoys, they can purchase the whole bottle for 15% off. Orders can be placed month-to-month, 3-monthly, 6-monthly or 12-monthly. They will also receive exclusive invites to VIP members sessions at the best rum bars in their city. As well as a solid 20% off the back bar rum at Melbourne’s Rum Diary Bar.



3. Beer Days Gift Pack/Hamper

Beer Days have considered the perfect curation of a personalised Christmas gift, and made your job 10 times easier. It’s a given that everyone appreciates a good beer, but if you know someone with a particular inkling towards the drink, why not give them a perfectly crafted gift pack. Better yet, you can select between ‘Rock n Roll’, ‘Sports Lovers’, ‘Food Lovers’, ‘Surfers’ and more, for your hamper to consist of perfectly selected beers to match their category as well as a novel and other gifts to suit the theme. The Sydney-based company will have your order ready in days, so there’s no need to stress about timing!



4. Arras Sparkling Rosé

If you were thinking of gifting a bottle of bubbles this Christmas, why not keep it local with some Australian sparkling. House of Arras have picked up countless awards this year, including the best sparkling at the National Wine Awards. They have a range of flavours, sizes and prices that will suit any budget and any gift idea. We particularly love the Sparkling Rose (available at Dan Murphy’s online for $64.99).


Mr Black

5. Mr Black

A bottle of Mr Black Cold Press Coffee Liqueur is the perfect present for anyone who loves espresso martinis. The Australian owned brand not only looks elegant but tastes delicious. Best of all it can be added to spirits already found in most people’s liquor cabinet. Put a twist on the classic vodka espresso martini and try it with dark rum, spiced rum, tequila or whisky. If you really want to impress your loved one add a bottle of Mr Black to 6 martini glasses, a bottle of their favourite spirit and a pack of Nespresso capsules (if they’ve got a machine already). Package it up in a big box with a bow and you’ve got an AMAZING present.
