Best Alcohol Advent Calendar Ideas for 2020

Nov 21, 2020 | Drink, Spirits

Advent calendars filled with chocolate are so 10 years ago. For all the cool not-quite-kids-anymore, starting Christmas early with an advent calendar filled with anything from , to beauty products to popcorn is the way to go.

Here at Bacchanalian, our favourite advent calendars are obviously filled with the best boozy treats out there.

For those wanting something a bit stronger than the brilliant beer options we’ve already shared, we’ve put together this list of our picks of the best alcohol advent calendars, mostly featuring whisky (for Keith) and gin (for Katie) and some rum for luck.

Gin Advent Calendars

Gin Advent Calendar

Master of Malt are selling ‘That Boutique-y Gin Company Advent Calendar’, and with 24 samples of different gins for under £50, it’s a great option for those wanting to stretch their gin tasting horizons.

Brewdog Lonewolf Advent Calendar

Brewdog are branching out. Their Lonewolf Gin is now served in a 12 gin advent calendar, including unique flavours like cranachan (a traditional Scottish pudding), fig and apricot, and chilli and lime.

Pink GIn Advent Calendar

I definitely enjoy a sugary pink gin on a sunny Summer afternoon, but packaged in advent calendar form, this could be a good Winter treat as well. With big brands like Tiptree, Pinkster, Gordon’s, Chase and Whitley Neill, this is a good option for those with a sweet tooth.

Whisky Advent Calendars

Need something urgently? Use your Amazon Prime account for something more fun than batteries and lightbulbs (just me?) and treat yourself to the , including all the different JD styles, such as Honey, Fire and Gentleman Jack.

Premium Whiskey Advent Calendar

If you are in the market for something special, this Premium Whisky Advent Calendar should make December go by in a happy, whisky-fuelled haze. As a bonus, the blue and gold art deco style packaging is super stylish.

Rare Whisky Calendar

And if you’ve got a spare £1,000 lying about, Master & Malt will happily take it off your hands in exchange for their Old & Rare Whisky Advent Calendar. The black and gold box is very swish and inside you’ll find some pretty special drinks, including lots of 30-40 year old rare vintages.

Rum Advent Calendars

Rum Advent Calendar

This 24 Days of Rum Advent Calendar features – surprise – 24 miniature bottles of rum, each from a different country. It comes with a couple of tasting glasses too, although this implies you are supposed to share…

If 24 days of rum is too much for you, this 12 day rum advent calendar, complete with tasting notebook, could be the one.

We hope you enjoyed that list. Please comment with your favourites or if you know of other calendars. Remember to drink responsibly this festive season!
