Author: Nicole Adler   Date Posted:17 November 2016 

There are many Brisbane Christmas hampers with a good bottle of alcohol this year, since our hamper designer has updated many existing Brisbane Christmas hampers with some new releases from various wine and champagne houses, but also some extraordinary options from the finest distilleries. To learn more about the wines, champagnes and whiskies inside our Brisbane Christmas hampers this year, please read our information below.

The Deluxe Office Share Xmas Basket

One of our Brisbane Christmas hampers containing excellent bottles of champagne and wine is the Deluxe Office Share Xmas Basket. The wine and champagne are provided by well-known champagne house Piper-Heidsieck and winery Cape Mentelle.

The Piper-Heidsieck Brut NV is a highly awarded champagne that is perfect for champagne collectors. The champagne won silver at the 2014 International Wine Challenge and silver outstanding and the international wines and spirits competition, so you can expect a lot from this release.

When you have the luck to try a glass of Piper-Heidsieck champagne, you will immediately notice a classic yet full-bodied and fruity champagne. These unique characteristics are delivered by more than one hundred grape varieties, obtained from various French vineyards owned by the Piper-Heidsieck champagne house.


The Piper-Heidsieck champagne house has a rich history as well. It is currently one of the oldest champagne houses in France, since the original label was founded as early as 1785. Therefore, you may come across other exquisite releases from this champagne house in specialised stores, including the Rosé Sauvage, Cuvée Sublime and the Rare Millésime 2002. However, none of their releases is as known as the Cuvée Brut inside this office hamper.

In addition to the champagne from Piper-Heidsieck, customers can also find a bottle of 2013 Cape Mentelle Shiraz in this hamper. The Cape Mentelle is the perfect blend of Australian shiraz and French winemaking methods, leading to a blend of vibrant red fruit, dark savoury pepper and cardamom spices. Experts can also detect a subtle note of integrated oak in the palate, which ensures the characteristic round and savoury finish.

The Deluxe Office Share Xmas Basket is not only a suitable hamper for those who appreciate good wine and champagne, since our hamper designer included numerous gourmet treats as well. From biscuits and nibbles to creamy chocolates; this hamper has everything a recipient needs for the holiday season.

The Pure Indulgence Hamper

Our Pure Indulgence is the perfect holiday gift for women who like cosmetics and chocolates, but also women who like a good glass of champagne; this is because this hamper contains a fine bottle of Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV Champagne.

Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV Champagne is one of the best-known champagnes in the world, not only because this champagne is commonly endorsed by numerous celebrities, but also because of the premium quality and outstanding palate this champagne has. The Brut Imperial NV is also the flagship champagne of French champagne house Moet & Chandon.

The house of Moet & Chandon was founded in 1743 by a man named Claude Moet. Since the founding of the champagne house, any release coming from Moet & Chandon has been characterised by elegance and finesse; this means that Moet & Chandon champagne is undoubtedly a great choice for those who like the finer things in life.

Even though the Moet & Chandon Brut NV Imperial is the best-known champagne from this champagne house, the house of Moet & Chandon has released more exquisite champagnes; this includes the Moet Ice Imperial, Rosé Imperial and the N.I.R. (Nectar Imperial Rosé Dry). However, the Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV scores highest on the wishlist of most champagne collectors during the holiday, which is why our hamper designer selected this champagne for the Pure Indulgence Hamper.

The Jameson Whiskey Xmas Hamper

Aside from Jack Daniels, Jameson is probably the most famous whisky label in the world, so one of their whiskies could not be missing from the dedicated Christmas hampers for male recipients. Inside the Jameson Whiskey Xmas Hamper, your male recipient will find a Jameson Select Reserve Whiskey, an excellent option during the holidays.

Jameson whiskey is the perfect blend of pot still and fine grain whiskeys, resulting in a versatile release that still provides that wonderfully smooth palate. James Irish Whiskey is triple-distilled and aged for at least four years. It is also the flagship of the Jameson label, so this whiskey has put the Jameson distillery on the worldwide map.

The aroma and taste of the Jameson Irish Whiskey is quite unique as well. Upon first smelling the whiskey, experienced whiskey lovers will detect a light floral fragrance. Those with a good sense of smell will also detect hints of spicy wood and sweet notes, a wonderful aroma that makes the whiskey lover want more.

When you take your first sip of the Jameson Irish Whiskey, you will notice a delicate blend of spices, nuts and vanilla. There are also some small hints of sherry, which leads to the exceptionally smooth whiskey that made Jameson famous.

Since Jameson is quite popular amongst our recipients, our hamper designer keeps an eye on the popularity of their new and existing releases, and makes sure that only the best Jameson whiskey is added to the range of gift hampers. Therefore, you will feel safe in the knowledge that this hamper provides the best Jameson whiskies can offer.
