This Whiskey Advent Calendar Is the Best Way to Count Down to Christmas

Once December 1 arrives, it's agonizing to wait the 24 days until Christmas. Those little chocolate advent calendars did the trick when we were kids, but boozy Christmas countdowns are making the month a lot more tolerable for us now that we're grown-ups.

Last season we celebrated with beer advent calendars and "ginvent" calendars, earlier this month Aldi released a wine advent calendar, and now there's one filled with everyone's favorite winter spirit: whiskey.

Created by Masters of Malt, Drinks by the Dram is fully loaded with high-quality booze in 30-milliliter sample-size bottles. All 24 shots are wax-sealed in drams, each containing a different whiskey to sample, from 50-year-old Scotch and traditional Irish whiskey to authentic American bourbon and clear Japanese whiskey. Expect to see brands like Glenfiddich, Highland Park, and Buffalo Trace, among other top-notch distillers. Depending on which pack you choose — there are standard, premium, and rare collections — the price ranges from about $132 to $200.

But you can also score liquored-up advent calendars that are stocked with rum, tequila, mezcal, vodka, cognac, and even absinthe — so there's literally something for everyone. All sets are currently available for pre-order on Amazon UK. And, considering how quickly these boozy countdowns sold out last season, you may want to snag one now.
