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.
Also as part of our whisky advent calendars, our dream team of collaborators have come up with their own tempting selections: Glenfarclas, Douglas Laing (brand new for 2017!) and That Boutique-y Whisky Company. There’s also The Japanese Whisky Advent Calendar, The Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar and The Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar, for in-depth exploration of each producing country. We are good to you. • #adventcalendar #adventcalendars #boutiqueywhisky #christmas #douglaslaing #glenfarclas #irishwhiskey #japanesewhisky #scotch #scotchwhisky #whiskyadvent #whisky #whiskeyadvent #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.
