Take it from one who knows, nothing makes Christmas quite so special as when you get to unwrap (and then drink) a bottle of beautiful liquor. Whether it’s gin, rum, whisky or something completely different, here are nine ideas for Christmas gifts for the discerning drinker!
From Australia and the world, these nine very different styles of hand-crafted spirit would make my Christmas absolutely awesome.
Single malt whiskies, bourbons and Irish whiskey, unusual gins, southern European digestifs and even a spirit that’s breaking the boundaries of how we barrel-age in Australia—they’re all here.
This is part of our 2023 Hint Magazine Christmas gift guide, which you can see here.
Morris Signature Single Malt Whisky
From Rutherglen on the banks of the Victorian Riverlands, Morris has been crafting wine—and especially fortified wine—since the 1950s. With so much heritage, Morris’s move to making whisky seems obvious.
In 2016, Morris put their original still, built in the 1930s, and their wealth of barrels to good use. Morris Signature Single Malt Whisky is a delightful dram finished in barrels that once held the winery’s fortified wine.
Bright copper and amber in colour, aromas of orchard fruits and a slight biscuity nuance, and incredibly flavourful with a zesty punch that leads to richer cacao, spice and marzipan, and dark berry notes in this delightful Aussie craft whisky.
