Drinks by the Dram revealed their selection of spirit-filled Advent Calendars for 2016 last week, all of which you can pre-order right this very second! Every calendar contains 24 different handmade wax-sealed 3cl drams, one behind each window, so you count down to Christmas while exploring spectacular whiskies, gins, rums, tequilas and more.
The range has been extended once again, with old favourites like the Whisky Advent Calendar and Ginvent Calendar being joined by brand new calendars including collaborations with Glenfarclas, That Boutique-y Whisky Company and Origin Gin. Not only that, there’s now calendars dedicated to Scotch, American, Irish and Japanese whiskies too, as well as the ridiculously epic Very Old & Rare Whisky Advent Calendar…
The contents of each calendar can be found on their page if you click on the ‘Read More’ drop down. If you don’t want to have every surprise ruined for you but want just a little hint of what’s in this year’s Whisky Advent Calendar, we can tell you that highlights include the World’s Best Blended Whisky (WWA 2014), 50 year old whisky and award-winning Taiwanese whisky! If you’re curious about what’s in the aforementioned Very Old & Rare Whisky Advent Calendar to make it so astounding, there are whiskies from long-closed distilleries, multi-award winning expressions and even a whisky worth £19,000 a bottle. Also, the calendar itself is a bespoke wooden box hand crafted by cabinet maker Simon Jewell Designs available with a walnut or macassar ebony finish. Like we said, ridiculously epic.
Now then, it’s about time we start counting down the days until we can all open window number 1! Only 77 days to go!
