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

On-demand experiences

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.

Live experiences

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.

Illustrated postcards

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!


Stepping lightly

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.


The gift the keeps giving

As an added bonus - when you order your Twelve Gins of Christmas box, you'll go in the draw to win a full bottle of all twelve gins - that's twelve bottles valued at over $1,100!

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].

What gins are in the box?

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.

  • Poor Toms - Strawberry (NSW)
  • Moonshiner - Kumquat (NSW)
  • Strange Omen - Hopped (TAS)
  • Dasher+Fisher - Meadow Gin (TAS)
  • Bondi Liquor Co - Rhubarb Gin (NSW)
  • Prohibition - Navy Strength (SA)
  • Melbourne Gin Co - Single Shot (VIC)

  • Great Southern Distilling Co - Giniverstiy (WA)
When will the box be delivered?

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.

How big are the gins?

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 :-( 

Can I get a full bottle of my favourite gins?

Due to the great relationships we've been able to form with our distiller partners over the last few years, you'll receive a swath of benefits after your box arrives - we don't want to ruin all the surprises but this includes at least a 5% discount on all the full bottle prices. And the discounts work until next Christmas!

I'm a subscriber or bought the Twelve Gins of Christmas last year, should I get it again?

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.

How much is shipping and can I get Express Post?

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.

I'm a member of the Gin Subscription, do I get a discount?

You sure do - login with the email address used for your subscription and your discount will be automagically applied!
