Qantas’ new winter menu includes Campari, Australian gin and new meat-free options

New Australian gins are rolling out, and Campari will be on offer in all international cabins for the first time as Qantas unveils a revamped spirits selection alongside the airline’s new winter menu.

Qantas Creative Director of Food, Beverage and Service Neil Perry’s team of mixologists and sommeliers tasted and reviewed nearly 400 different products in designing the new spirit offering.

Australian favourite Four Pillars Rare Dry Gin will be the new standard gin pour across the Flying Kangaroo’s international First, Business and Premium Economy cabins.
