The gift that keeps on giving.

Gin is the gift that keeps on giving.

First, it was gin made from ants, then it was pink gin. Now, you can forget all previous gins and customise your own.

Archie Rose Distilling Co. in Sydney is allowing customers to tailor their own gin, choosing from 14 different botanicals to make a signature blend.

You can choose from juniper, blood lime, fresh orange lemon myrtle and more, with the option to pick an existing recipe if you aren’t as confident in the art of distilling.

You’ll even be able to set the strength of each ingredient, so you can decide on what botanical to focus on. The distillery will then package it up in a custom bottle with your name (and recipient’s name) printed on the label.

It doesn’t end there either. Archie Rose also provides the option of customisable vodka and whisky if that's more your style.

It all comes at a very reasonable price, with a bottle of customised gin costing $99.
