Drinks by the Dram Christmas Crackers!

Drinks by the Dram Christmas Crackers

Before we get started, yes, we know. We’re banging on about Christmas and it’s not even Halloween yet. Most of us at MoM Towers are only just putting the finishing touches to our costumes – this year I’m changing it up from my usual Beastie Boys ‘Sabotage’ cop and going as a horse with Jake. He’s kindly volunteered to be the back half (but he doesn’t know that yet).

However, the Drinks by the Dram Christmas Crackers were recently put up for pre-order and now we can’t but feel all Christmassy and whatnot. Just look at these handsome little rascals! Don’t expect to find any tiny rulers, giant plastic paper-clips or ridiculously easy puzzles here, oh no. These Christmas Crackers are filled with award-winning spirits and liqueurs!

These are a sure fire way to win at Christmas. Set them up on the table before Christmas dinner, enjoy your meal with all the trimmings (don’t forget the cauliflower cheese, it’s easily the best part of Christmas dinner – I will fight anyone who disagrees) and then get your after-dinner drinks sorted with the best Christmas crackers on this planet, and likely on any planet.

If you see anyone using any underhand tactics to win, like holding onto too much of the cracker, you can understand why when such awesome drinks are on the line. But still, sling a sprout at their noggin and tell them to play fair.

Christmas Dinner Sprout

Careful now.

Not only are these Christmas crackers full of excellent spirits and liqueurs, they’ve also got the mandatory party hat and crap joke, as well as tasting notes for your drink! So when you defeat someone in the gladiatorial combat known cracker pulling, wear your little crown with pride, sip your delicious victory dram and announce to the whole table how snowmen get to work*.

The Drinks by the Dram Christmas Crackers are ready for pre-order, with an estimated dispatch date of November 12th. Now, if you will excuse, I’m off to stick some antlers and a red nose on mine and Jake’s Halloween costume.


*They don’t. They’re snowmen. They can’t move. Don’t be ridiculous**.

**Fine. They get around “By icicles”. Ba-dum-tshhh.

    Cauliflower cheese?!‽ I’m just going to assume you meant to say bread sauce.

    What a great idea. There is a golden opportunity here because the Christmas dinner table usually has children sat at the table and even though it’s another fantastic idea by the good chaps at Master Of Malt there is room for improvement. The way I see this is like the drinks in the crackers are very unrelated and is just a mixture of drams that I certainly wouldn’t drink and as a matter of fact my family wouldn’t drink. What would put the cherry on the Christmas cake would to either choose what drink by the dram’s you want in your Christmas crackers or have sets like Spayside or highland or islay or even world whisky types. I hope Master Of Malt is seeing what I’m saying because it’s a pity to let such a good idea go to waste as customers will see what is in the crackers and won’t buy them because of two reasons which are no choice and he or she knows the spirit drinkers in the family don’t like what is in the crackers and they for the customer will not purchase the Christmas crackers.

    Please do not waste such a good idea due to lack of choice or unwanted and unliked drams chaps at Master of Malt !!!
    You have a great idea here and it just needs tweaking a little to make it more appealing to cater for customers preferences.

  3. Hi Stuart,

    We spoke to Drinks by Dram and they agree that’s a great idea. In fact, it’s already on their roadmap for next year. Just as they expanded the Advent Calendar range to offer choice between spirits, they intend to do something similar for crackers!
