The night is young and your friend is on a mission to find the perfect drink. They could mix their vodka with anything really, but who wants to be like everyone else? With this curated gift box of an all-new locally made small batch craft vodka, the recipient can make cocktails to die for.
This vodka gift set is a great present for the person who’s always down for a good mix. Such a thoughtful gift idea, they’ll be in their element with this Craft Vodka Gift Box set out in front of them.
With handcrafted Kapiti Coast Vodka from New Zealand, some local sweet and savoury snacks (the ones that wouldn’t survive too long on their own), and one of our favourite Apostle Hot Sauces to really up the game — the contents of this gift will be gone quick!
Bloody Mary Cocktail Recipe
Why not try a new cocktail? Here is a recipe for a St. Phillip Bloody Mary (Apostle Hot Sauce and Vodka included with the gift box):
Juice of ½ a lime
1 tablespoon St. Phillip
2 shots Kapiti Coast Vodka
1 shot pickle juice
1 teaspoon Worchester sauce
1 cup of tomato juice
A pinch of salt & cracked pepper
Combine ingredients in a glass and pour over ice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!

Amazing gifts and great customer service. I ordered a gift box for my mum for Mother’s Day and forgot to add a card. I got a phone call from a lovely lady asking if I would like her to write a note and add it to the gift at no charge. They also made sure it would be delivered in time in which it was. I would definitely would recommend these guys and will be shopping with them again. Thanks team 😊 - 05/05/2022
What beautiful gifts, and such personal service. I ordered a gift box for my mum and forgot the card, then got a phone call from the owner of the company asking if I would like her to write a note and pop it in for me. I would absolutely recommend these guys. - 05/05/2022
Such great personal service - extremely rare these days to experience it. I wanted to order an "Auckland" themed (per pic) gift box for a b'day. There was a notice on their website warning of potential delivery delays & to ring if delivery date was critical. I rang & spoke to the co-owner I think, who pretty much reacted immediately, promising to start on the order I was yet to place online, so that it would be ready for their 11am courier due in 10mins, giving it a better chance to reach Picton next day. Outstanding. And it's great to support the NZ food/wine producers whose products go into the boxes too. - 03/05/2022
We recently received a We Love Local care package from my husband’s employer which was an awesome surprise. Then when some friends were having a bit of a hick up we decided to send them a (W.L.L.) care package. Their reaction was one of pure surprise and gratitude. That’s what we love about this product. Supporting local artisans and sharing the love.Thank you. - 02/05/2022
