In collaboration with the family of artist, Norman Lindsay and the State Library of NSW, Southern Wild Co has cooked up a magical slice of Australian Christmas served up in whisky tinted glass with spicy notes of baked citrus, cardamon and cloves. Think cheeky puddings and childhood memories wrapped in warm aromas of sandalwood and vanilla.
Norman Lindsay’s, The Magic Pudding, the beloved Australian children’s classic of a grumpy, talking pudding called Albert and his fantastical human and animal friends.

THE MAGIC PUDDING / NORMAN LINDSAY
Aussie kids want to read a story ‘about fighting and eating’ over some European whimsey about fairies!
THE MAGIC PUDDING / NORMAN LINDSAY / 1918
In Norman Lindsay’s ‘Magic Pudding’, the wonderful koalas Bunyip Bluegum and Uncle Wattlebery represented a new society, one that was rich in the extreme. The Magic Pudding, Albert, represented everything this country had to offer and it appeared it would never run out. The inexhaustible cut-and-come-again pudding, a land of plenty, a land of abundance, a land which had so much promise and still does.
