Koko Black x Australian Gin Distillers Collection

Koko Black x Australian Gin Distillers Collection

Meet our makers of fine purveyors of flavour

At Koko Black, we love working with Australia’s most talented purveyors of flavour – whichever form that takes.  Our latest series of collaborations takes flavour savours on a journey across our great nation, bringing with it a taste of our place.  So we’re proud to unveil our Australian Gin Distiller’s Collection: nine inspired hampers, presenting a celebration of  premium local gin distillers from across Australia, reflecting their local, native or experimental flavours. Each gin from the Australian Distillers Collection has  been selected to pair with a beautifully curated collection of premium Koko Black Chocolate.

HISTORY OF THE COLLABORATION

Our partnership with premium Australian flavour purveyors started in 2018, when we worked with some of Australia’s leading distillers: Four Pillars, Starward, The Rum Diary and Melbourne Moonshine  to develop some boozy Koko bites in the way of Apple Pie Moonshine, Vanilla Spiced Rum, Single Origin Dark Whisky and Lemon Myrtle Gin.  Today, we continue this tradition by collaborating with nine premium local gin distillers from across Australia, celebrating local produce, native botanicals and provocative flavours.

This celebration of Australian flavours makes for the ultimate gift, for any reason and any season.  Beautifully packaged in our Koko hamper boxes, and a stunning sleeve for a final flourish of luxury- this collection of hampers is dressed to impress.  They are the perfect gift to delight anyone who appreciates the finer things – designed to be nibbled, sipped and savoured.
