Meet The Cult Gin Helping Us Celebrate The Silly Season

And how we’re indulging–from cocktails to cake.

Gin devotees, listen up! Prohibition Liquor Co has launched the 2021 vintage of its popular Christmas Gin and it’s better than ever before.  

The sweetness of figs, macerated cherries and vanilla is expertly mixed with the spicy notes of cinnamon, ginger and star anise to remind us of a traditional holiday pudding with every sip. If there’s a way to induce the fond, nostalgic feeling of Christmas before the big day itself, this could be it.   

Presented in a lustrous gold and white bottle hand-made in the Cognac region of France, the craft gin promises a premium experience before you uncork the wax-sealed lid. Plus, it makes for a luxurious gift to the spirit lover in your life (or looks great on the top shelf of your own bar cart!).

The best part? This sweet and spicy spirit can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a variety of festive drinks and desserts. Below, we’ve rounded up the tastiest ways to celebrate with Prohibition Christmas Gin. 

Enjoy the festive season and drink responsibly with this sophisticated spirit for adults aged 18 and over. 


Gin and Ginger Cocktail

This spicy cocktail is more than just your classic gin and tonic mix. Simply pour 30ml Prohibition Christmas Gin into a highball glass, then half fill it with ice. Add 100ml Fever-Tree Ginger Ale into the glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry and orange slice.

The unique flavour profile makes it a brilliant beverage to surprise your guests at upcoming festivities. Or savour a glass with the adults in your family in front of a holiday flick. Cheers!

Christmas Cake

Christmas Chocolate Cake

Chef and television personality Jason Roberts has created a jolly new recipe for 2021. The star ingredient? Prohibition Liquor Co’s sophisticated Christmas Gin, of course. This gin-infused cake with dried figs, cherries and dark chocolate ticks off two tasks on your hosting list: it’s a mouth-watering finale to your festive feast and makes for a showstopper centrepiece.

Watch here as Jason creates this indulgent dessert to the heart-warming soundtrack of Bing Crosby’s ‘It’s Beginning To Look Like Christmas’. Try telling us it doesn’t get you in the mood for the silly season!

Topping With Spirit

The syrup-like texture of the Adelaide-produced Prohibition Christmas Gin makes it the perfect topping to take your desserts from dull to decadent. Add a kick to traditional desserts and pour the luxurious spirit over ice-cream, custard or pudding. The blend of botanicals in this small-batch gin brings a balance of softness and spice to these sweet delicacies.  


Christmas Float Cocktail

Another cocktail recipe that’s bound to lift your spirits is a delightful Christmas Float. Add 1-2 scoops of gourmet ice cream into a glass, and slowly pour over 45ml Prohibition Christmas Gin. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and voilà, you’ve got an Insta-worthy dessert drink in your hands. We recommend vanilla bean, fig or pistachio ice cream to complement the citrus-forward flavour of the dry gin.

And remember, enjoy the silly season and drink responsibly.
