It’s time to get merry with award-winning gin encased baubles

The holiday season is a magical time of year filled with festive gatherings, sparkling decorations, and the joy of gifting something special. This year, the Wild Hibiscus Flower Company have come up with the perfect way to bring the holiday spirit to every event and gift exchange. Their newest specialty product ‘Gingle Bells’ is a gift set of six floral gin baubles, guaranteed to spread the Christmas joy in the form of a unique gift, celebratory cocktail or beautiful party decoration.

The eye-catching baubles are filled with Australian Dry Gin sourced from master distiller Reg Papps, who was named one of the top five gin distillers in the world at the 2017 World Gin Awards in London. The gin is then infused with six different natural botanicals for a distinctive flavour and colour. Flavours include Finger Lime, B’Lure Butterfly Pea Flower, Wattleseed, Snow Chrysanthemum, Wild Hibiscus and Pepperberry. For a decorative touch, each bauble’s botanical flavour can be visibly seen in its centre with an ethereal floral element encased inside. The gift set includes two 54ml baubles at 37% alcohol volume and four 50ml baubles at 40% alcohol volume.

Accompanying each gin bauble is a cocktail recipe to ensure the receiving party knows exactly how best to utilise the gift sets’ extraordinary botanical flavours. To match the Finger Lime Gin is the ‘Gin-F-Bomb’, a classic gin and tonic style cocktail. For the B’Lure Butterfly Pea Flower Gin, it is the ‘Purple Rain’, a blue cocktail that turns pink and purple when lime juice is added. The Wattleseed Gin is best enjoyed in the ‘Wattleseed Express’, an espresso martini cocktail. The Snow Chrysanthemum Gin is finest served in the ‘Temple of the Sun’ a tropical and fruity cocktail. To match the Wild Hibiscus Flower Gin are the refreshing ‘Rise ‘n Shine’ prosecco cocktails. Finally, the Pepperberry Gin is perfect in the ‘Berry Pepper Kiss’ cocktail for a bit of a kick.      

The charming gift set is both beautiful to the taste and to the sight. Not only ideal as a gift, the baubles make striking Christmas tree or table centrepieces for those hosting holiday get-togethers.

“Having worked in the craft cocktail industry for over 20 years now, the team at Wild Hibiscus Flower Company know a thing or two about creating great drinks and unforgettable moments,” says Founder Lee Etherington. “We are certain Gingle Bells will make a beautiful gift for even the hardest friends and family to buy for. The gift set can be enjoyed by many and will make lasting memories.”

The Wild Hibiscus Flower Company has been selling edible flower products to enhance food and cocktails since it was founded by Lee Etherington in 1998. Having successfully sold their popular Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup across the globe for many years, they are now spreading the holiday spirit in Australia with Gingle Bells. 

Gingle Bells can be purchased for RRP $79 at the website and select stockists.
