With its complex, sophisticated, herbal nature, Galliano has been an important ingredient in tiki cocktails. Classic examples include the Freddy Fudpucker and the Hurricane. To celebrate the tiki trend, Galliano presents three easy-to-make, holiday inspired tiki cocktails and a hand-made, custom designed ceramic tiki mug.

The Galliano Tiki Gift Set includes a 375ml bottle of Galliano L’Autentico, one custom ceramic Tiki mug designed and manufactured by Tiki Farm along with seasonal Tiki recipes
The “Kon Tiki”: The Galliano Tiki Mug, also known as the “Kon Tiki,” is a reproduction of an iconic mug introduced in the 1940s. Though there are a number of variations on the original design, the mug’s source of inspiration was the Tiki God painted onto the mainsail of Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl’s “Kon Tiki” raft made famous through his journey across the Pacific.
