About Sunshine & Sons

Known for their idyllic bottles that evoke all of the allure and warmth of Queensland’s carefree subtropical coast, Sunshine & Sons spirits are pot-distilled in the Sunshine Coast hinterland rainforest with carefully curated ingredients and a laidback approach.

In 1871, Sunshine & Sons founder, James Costar, chose to name one of the coast’s very first watering holes ‘Nil Desperandum’, the Latin translation of ‘nothing to despair for’ and the first iteration of Australia’s iconic expression of easy-going optimism – ‘no worries’.

Ever since then, Sunshine & Sons has been bottling gins, vodkas and rums infused with native Australian ingredients and inspired by close collaborations with the local producers, great causes and communities that make Australia the paradise that it is.



  • Libby at Hampers To Go went the extra mile to customise a hamper for a 40th birthday gin-lover! We are interstate and really appreciated the customer service and willingness to help. The birthday girl loved her specialised hamper and all the delicious locally sourced accompaniments included. Definitely recommend this small business.

  • Absolutely over the moon with the hamper I sent from NZ to my mum in Brisbane. Libby was so helpful and went above and beyond to make sure the hamper arrived in time for Christmas. The personal service, care and attention and customer service experience was exceptional, I will certainly be using Hampers To Go in the future. Thank you so much
