The Gintonica story is simple – We are lovers of gin.
David Box is the man behind Gintonica and has dedicated himself to becoming the gin envoy of the Australian distilling movement. His love of gin started with his sundowner ritual of a G&T, and he soon found himself seeking out micro and regional distilleries to learn about their hand-crafted production and centuries old traditions.
Gintonica was launched and curates Australian Craft Gins in 50ml bottles, gift packs and our now infamous Aussie Gin Advent Calendar. As a gin aficionado David has a vision to transform Gintonica into a central resource for everything gin, from botanicals to recipes, pairings to makers, and everything in between.
Gin boasts a rich history across the UK and Europe, and we are loving how Australian artisan producers are putting a unique twist on this classic spirit.
There are now more than 150 gin distilleries in Australia and these creative folks are pushing the gin flavour boundaries with the introduction of native plants and herbs such as lemon myrtle, finger limes, eucalyptus, strawberry gum, wattleseed, and so much more.
At Gintonica we do all the hard work – sourcing, sampling, and working with the makers to deliver handy sample-sized bottles – so all you have to do is sip and enjoy.
