Gin & Tonic Tasting Set (One off & Recurring Subscription)

$99.95


*BOX FOR JULY/AUGUST 2018 - TONICS FOR A FLORAL & FRUITY GIN*

WHY SHOULD YOU BUY THIS BOX?

Hands up if any of these apply to you or someone you know:

  1. You've never had a gin and tonic you've really liked;
  2. Every time you walk into a shop or you go online, you see all these different tonics but you don't know which gins they go with, so you get overwhelmed (I mean, what is even a Mediterranean tonic?)
  3. You want to try all these different tonics out there but you're on a limited budget and you really don't want to buy a pack of a tonic you're not sure you'll even like, or pay multiple shipping fees from different shops;
  4. You are a real gin fan and you want to lift your G&T game.
  5. You're looking for an activity to do that involves a good time and some good drinks for date night, quiet night in, hens' party, dinner party and everything else in between.

We've done the hard work for you and curated a gin and tonic tasting set to help you play tonic tinder in one convenient box. Every two months, we feature a gin from a certain flavour profile and include 5 tonics that we've road tested to pair with the gin. Not only that, we include a Wild Card in each box - a little something out of left field to pair with the gin that you may or may not expect. 

WHAT DO YOU GET FROM EACH BOX?
  • Full sized bottles - 1 x gin, 5 x individual tonics and 1 x Wild Card mixer
  • Your own G&T tasting at home without having to pay upwards of $300 for a private tasting - each set comes with tasting cards and instruction sheet on how you can play your own game of gin, tonic and match 
  • A bloomin' good time - each set makes about 9-12 G&Ts so whether you're one or two people, it's enough for that date night/dinner party/hens do you've been planning.
  • Time and money saved from having to shop around for different tonics and trying to work out what pairings might work.
  • Brownie points to impress your gin drinking buddies/boyfriend/girlfriend/ family/anyone under the sun with your new found tonic knowledge 
  • Quality assured - the sets have been developed following public tasting events we've done and with fellow gin lovers
  • Free shipping within Australia - if you buy booze online, you'll know how big a deal this is.

WHAT GINS DO YOU FEATURE?

We pick gins based on the flavour profile we are trying to highlight. We focus on small batch Australian gins however, from time to time, we do feature gins from other countries if we feel they will fit with the profile we are highlighting for the particular month. Each month, we will announce in advance the flavour profile of the gin.

BUT WHAT IF I ALREADY HAVE THE GIN? OR I'M WORRIED I MAY NOT KNOW THE GIN YOU FEATURE IN ANY GIVEN SET.

If you're a vast gin drinker, you are welcome to email us on contact@cocktailco.com.au to find out what the featured gin is prior to purchase. However, if you have already tried the gin and did not like it, we encourage you to keep an open mind as the tonics included may change your mind about whether you would drink the gin in a G&T. And if you are worried about whether you will recognise the gin we feature, don't be! Part of the fun is in discovering new gins and how to drink them. We don't feature gins that we would not drink ourselves.

HOW MUCH GIN WILL I GET IN EACH SET?

Each box comes with a full sized bottle of gin, which will vary in size between 500ml to 700ml depending on the distillery. We do not re-bottle or repackage gins into smaller bottles for the box.

HOW MANY TONICS COMES IN EACH SET?

Each box comes with 5 different tonics. The tonic bottles will vary in size between 150ml to 250ml. We do not re-bottle or repackage tonics. We also include a "wild card" mixer in each box, which isn't necessarily a tonic water but is a mixer that is designed to make you think outside the box (figuratively speaking) when it comes to thinking what you could pair the gin with. 

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE TONICS?

Based on what the gin's flavour profile is. We will pick 5 different tonics that we think will complement the gin in question, whether it is to highlight a particular botanical in the gin or based on how the distillery intended the gin to be paired. For that reason, we may repeat a particular tonic from time to time. 

CAN I BUY THE TONICS INDIVIDUALLY? 

Yes, you can. We offer Build Your Own Tonic Boxes here

HOW MANY GIN & TONICS WILL I GET OUT OF EACH SET?

Depending on how generous you are with your pour when you are sampling the tonics and when you are making your drink, you should on average get 8-10 gin and tonics out of each set, plus 1-2 gin and mixer using the wild card mixer. That's on average about 9-12 drinks out of each set, enough for a very happy time!
