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 from Hampers to Go went above and beyond to help me get a personalised hamper delivered to my parents who were holidaying on the Sunshine Coast for their 40th Anniversary. I also had another gift sent to Libby to place with the hamper as a surprise on their arrival at the hotel. She didn’t have to do that but was more than happy to accommodate me. I couldn’t recommend their service more!
