Benriach original 10 1

Benriach The Original Ten Single Malt

In partnership with Brown Forman

Speyside-based distillery Benriach first launched in 1898 and has defied extinction on more than one occasion. Now stronger than ever before, they continue to forge ahead without losing sight of their historic methods and innovations. They recently reimagined their core range of signature expressions and the results are predictably fantastic. For the Scotch-lover in your life, The Original Ten Single Malt is a certifiable classic and one that delivers no shortage of pleasant surprises.

Cultivating The Original Ten’s unique character involves triple-cask maturation in bourbon barrels, sherry casks, and virgin oak casks. The respective juices are then seamlessly married to create a spirit that’s as silky smooth as it is complex. A nose of orchard fruit, honey, and toasted oak is followed by a similarly fruity taste, which layers in notes of sweet malt before trailing out on waves of almond and spiced vanilla.

Why are you still here? Go pick up a bottle for a friend or loved one and make sure they pour you a dram or two. You’ll be glad they did. – AU$85

Brewart 1

BrewArt BeerDroid

In partnership with BrewArt

The old adage suggests the best gift is the one you make yourself, but some DIY options are better left to the professionals. Until we stumbled on the BeerDroid from BrewArt, we would have put beer brewing in that category. Pumping out pub quality beer at the push of a button, this system allows users to monitor and control their brews all from a smartphone. The marvels of modern technology, hey?

Described as a fully automated personal brewer, the BeerDroid makes for the tinkerer’s dream. While the BrewPints range lets users replicate some of the world’s best beers, from golden pilsners or hop filled IPAs, they can effortlessly customise their creation at will. Add elements, enhancers, dry hops and yeast to make something truly unique – you can even add your own ingredients. Best of all, the BrewArt BrewFlo (that’s BrewArt’s Kegging system) dispenses 5L strengthened PET kegs, without the need for CO2 and with the addition of disposable keg liners and beer lines, cleaning is simple as. Now all you need is someone to drink with. Wonder if they make a MateDroid?

Due to the huge demand BeerDroid has recently sold out, pre-order now and secure yours.

Fender

Fender Player Plus Telecaster Guitar

In partnership with Fender

Iconic style and exceptional performance collide on the Fender Player Plus Telecaster Guitar. Between its advanced technology, ergonomic design, and signature finish, this classic instrument offers love at first play. Thanks to Player Plus Noiseless pickups, you can expect clear and balanced playback across every range, whilst a handy push-pull switch on the tone control engages both pickups in wired series, increasing output and body.

Equipped with a “C” Player Plus Tele neck along with smooth-rolled edges, this guitar will have you feeling like you’ve owned it for years from the very first moment you try it on for size. Then we have its 12” radius fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets, which deliver similar levels of seamless operation. Speaking of seamlessness, a modern 6-saddle Tele bridge with block steel saddles makes tuning and string changes a breeze. Of course, you knew this guitar was a cut above as soon as you saw the name Fender. – AU$1999

Grant burge filsell old vine shiraz 2019 1

Grant Burge Filsell Shiraz 2019

In partnership with Grant Burge

Oenophile’s flock from near and far to visit Australia’s Barossa Valley, home to some of the planet’s finest vineyards. Grant Burge is amongst them and their Filsell vineyard is one of the area’s best. Consisting of near-century-old vines, it routinely produces grapes of powerful flavour and concentration. It’s this very fruit that makes up the winemaker’s Filsell Shiraz, hence the high ratings and loyal following.

Just about every season was drier than usual in 2019, which decreased the yield across vineyards whilst simultaneously improving upon concentration levels. To put it another way: what the 2019 Filsell Shiraz lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. Deep and rich in colour, it delivers intense aromas of chocolate and dark fruit and a full-bodied taste of liquorice and black spice. Everything carries through to the finish and lingers long on the palate, giving you something to savour even after you’ve taken that final sip. – AU$48
