Coffee gin … yes it’s a thing and it’s insanely good! GINSPRESSO is the sell-out (twice actually) Coffee Gin Liqueur that’s taken Australia by storm. One sip and you’ll understand why. It’s the only 100% Coffee Gin Liqueur in South Australia and is smooth, rich and yum!

It combines bold, rich and chocolatey coffee beans, curated by State Champion baristas no less, with gin (of course), Australian native wattle seed and Aussie-grown vanilla for a smooth-as-silk coffee gin liqueur.

Espresso Martinis are most certainly on the menu and without the regular $18 price tag per cocktail. But you can enjoy this versatile stunner in other several ways – over ice, with tonic or cola, in milk, drizzled over ice cream or in coffee cocktails! If you’re after something a little fancy and delicious, then you can’t go wrong with Coffee gin!
