2019 A Year in Review & Christmas Message (Back 28 Jan 2020)

2019 has been an incredible year with many highlights, not withstanding reaching the 10 year milestone in June. Embarking on the next decade has been exciting for us and we look forward to what 2020 will bring.


As of Friday 13 December 2019, Gourmantic will be closed as we take our annual break. We’ll be back online on Tuesday 28 January 2020 after the Australia Day long weekend. If you’re after drink inspiration during the break, visit us at Cocktails & Bars where we will be publishing a summer cocktail series.

If you feel like catching up on the trends of 2019, here are some recommended reads:

We’d like to thank you for your continued support and we wish you and your loved ones a happy and safe holiday season. Until 2020!
