This year, we're traveling around the country exploring twelve Australian gins and their local stories.
Everything is included
Everything you need to explore 12 incredible gins is included. The gin, the garnish, the mixer - all included!
Twelve Australian Gins
We've counted more than 5,000 gins globally and, while there's a new gin launched almost every day, commercially available gins in Australia now number 500-1000 - we're punching well above our weight!
This year, we're exploring twelve examples of uniquely Australian gins and their local stories.
For our returning customers - we have selected an entirely new set of 12 gins unseen in our gin subscription and in last year's Twelve Gins of Christmas.
More than a sample
More than just a sample box, your Twelve Gins of Christmas box comes with on-demand experience podcasts for each gin with interviews with distillers and incredible stories hosted by our team of gin experts.
On the 12 days of Christmas (25 Dec to 5 Jan), Twelve Gins of Christmas experience box owners may join us for a live experience at 4.00pm AEDT each day.
Your gin box also includes 12 collectable hand-illustrated postcards, one for each gin!
Garnishes & mixers
We've done the hard work to try each of the gins in dozens of different ways and find our favourite mixers and garnishes paired with each gin.
The Twelve Gins of Christmas box includes those twelve mixers and garnishes and is a complete experience with no more to pay. The only thing you'll need is ice and a glass!
Everything we do at Box Bar is guided by a principle we call stepping lightly. It means we go to great efforts to make sure we step lightly on the earth. Everything you find in your box is reusable, biodegradable, compostable and recyclable. It also guides our philosophy of ensuring each supplier earns a fair living, our staff are looked after and more - read more.
Each pre-ordered Twelve Gins of Christmas box is hand constructed by our team and will be shipped before the end of November to arrive in plenty of time for Christmas.
The Box Bar Twelve Gins of Christmas is packed full of experiences along with 12 gins, 12 garnishes and 12 mixers. Each gin is guided by on-demand experience podcasts along with a live experience at 4pm on each of the twelve days of Christmas – 25 December through 5 January.
Questions and answers
Last year, we answered lots of questions, here's the answer to some of those questions.
If you have any other questions, give us a shout by web chat or shoot us an email at [email protected].
The Twelve Gins of Christmas in 2021 includes dry, navy, flavoured and infused gin styles (along with one or two unique gins that don't fit into a typical style). We reckon that finding out what the gins are when you open the box is a huge part of the fun of this experience. But if you really really want to know which gins are in the box, you can use the button below to find out more.
Each Twelve Gins of Christmas box is handmade by our team. We'll start shipping these out before the end of November in plenty of time for Christmas.
Each of the Twelve Gins of Christmas measure a "dram" or 50mL - a total of 600mL of gin. Enough to mix two drinks or a really big one just for you! There is approximately 23 standard drinks in total.
Everything your need is in your box including a paired mixer and garnishes for each gin. The mixers range from 150-250mL each and add up to a total of 2250mL.
All you need to have is glasses and ice. We tried to include the ice in the box once a while back and it didn't go so well in the post :-(
Absolutely! With 500-1000 gins available in Australia today, we've selected 12 new ones that are unique for the Twelve Gins of Christmas 2021 - you won't find a repeat from last year or from our gin subscription.
We ship by Australia Post and, this year, given the expected significant delays with all courier and postal networks due to Christmas demand, we're shouting everyone a free upgrade to Express Post absolutely free!
Please be careful when selecting your delivery address. If the experience box is returned to us or needs redirecting it will incur an Australia Post fee of $15 inc GST.
