- Gingle Bells created the decorations with spirits from Wild Hibiscus Flower

An Australian distillery is selling gin-filled baubles to decorate Christmas trees this festive season – and they’re flying out of stock.
Gingle Bells makes the ornaments with craft spirits in its distillery in Sydney’s northwest, infusing each bauble with one of six native Australian syrups to give them a unique flavour and festive colour.
Flavours include finger lime, wattleseed, snow chrysanthemum, wild hibiscus and pepperberry, with sprigs of native plants and flowers floating inside each container.
The decorations – which come in sets of six for $79 – can be ordered online from the brand’s website to bring something a little different to your home this year.

Comments on the brand’s Instagram account reveal a community of dedicated gin drinkers who call the baubles the ‘perfect’ Christmas present.
‘Hahaha love this idea!’ one woman wrote.
‘Omg how cute,’ said a second, while a third added: ‘This is all I want this year.’
Alcohol-filled ornaments have been popular since Christmas 2018, when eager shoppers snapped up huge quantities across Australia and the UK.
The baubles follow the release of a gin-filled advent calendar, which launched online in October.
