The festive season is bearing down upon us!
Whether you are treating a loved one or just yourself, these boozy advent calendars are the perfect way to get into the festive spirit! Hand crafted by the team at White Possum, each calendar features 25 different Australian craft gins in a range of styles such as London Dry, sloe, modern botanical and navy strength. Some of them have won major awards and others are so obscure they have hardly seen the light of day. Each gin is presented in a 30mL matte-black glass bottle alongside ‘scratchie’ slots that reveal interesting facts about the distillery and gin you’re about to taste.
$269, stocks are extremely limited.

He worked in many of Adelaide’s better restaurants and helped his family establish a vineyard in McLaren Vale, before moving to London to work for WINE magazine.

After gaining experience at great wineries such as Rosemount, Vasse Felix and Stella Bella (plus overseas vintages in New Zealand and France), Nick finally settled in Margaret River and is producing excellent wines under his own label, Wines of Merritt.

Our House-Made Tasmanian Salmon Patties are a bright, fresh change from the regular baked fillets you may already know. Made with no binders or fillers, these burgers are far from the traditional “salmon patty” and their simplicity lets the Tasmanian salmon that should be front and center get all the praise. Our in-house chefs have used fresh Tasmanian salmon, spring onions, and a selection of herbs & spices to create delicious salmon patties. These have been created for weeknight meals when time is short! Serve as a burger or with a simple side salad!
