Out of one of Cam’s favourite family traditions came this fun, festive, complex gin that sings of hot Australian Christmas days spent feasting, drinking and playing cricket.

Each year on Derby Day, Cam’s family makes Christmas puddings to the same recipe his late mum, Wilma used to make when he was a kid. Then he distills them (in our still called Wilma) with a base of juniper, cinnamon, star anise, coriander seed and angelica over the top. 

The final Christmas Gin is then aged for a year in Muscat barrels over 100 years old. And to finish, Cam adds some Rutherglen Muscat, rounding out the palate and adding a touch of richness. 

So, how should you drink your Australian Christmas Gin?

Firstly, we love a nip of it on the rocks with a twist of orange so you can taste all those Christmas flavours to their fullest. Or if you want to go to a richer level, take a note out of Cam’s book and add a teaspoon of cream.

But Christmas time in Australia means summer days, so we know you’ll be hankering for something fresh and cool. For a super simple thirst quencher try a Christmas Gin & Ginger with ginger ale or beer and fresh lime (reminiscent of a Dark & Stormy).

Whether you’re celebrating with friends and family or simply enjoying a quiet night at home, our Christmas Gin cocktails are the perfect way to add some gin-fuelled festive fun to the holiday season.
