Stop pretending you’re all grown up and sophisticated: we’re all still big kids at heart. That’s why the advent calendars from Gin Foundry and Drinks By The Dram are essential Christmas buys. They appeal to the eight year-old that is alive and well in all of us but, and here’s the clever bit, instead of cheapo chocolate or glittery pictures of robins and carol singers, behind each window lies something that is very much aimed at adults.
How marvellous! 24 dinky 3 cl. bottles of gawgeous spirits hidden behind a numbered window waiting for you to open and enjoy each day. Whisky aficionados and newbies alike can choose from either The Whisky Advent Calendar (£149.95), or The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar (£249.95), both of which proudly boast a special selection of bourbons, single malts and ryes from around the world.
Gin lovers meanwhile can count or more importantly, sip down to Christmas with The Ginvent Calendar (£99.95), containing two dozen 3 cl. bottles of super tasty gins. The styles might be different but the quality of each is absolutely tip-top. If you want to take it on another level, there’s The Craft Ginvent Calendar (£109.95), containing a whole lot of junipery goodness from craft or small volume distilleries. All four come in beautifully designed boxes with helpful flavour profiles illustrated on the back.
If last year’s sales are anything to go by, these babies won’t be around for very long. Get your orders in PDQ, and see if you can wait until December 1st before revealing the treasures behind each window…
Available from Master of Malt, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Ocado and many more.
