Alternative Advent Calendars - THE BEST ONE YET? | Drinks by the Dram Spirits Advent Calendar*


Advent calendars crammed full of chocolate are pretty good. Advent calendars stuffed with skincare are damn sweet. Advent calendars packed full of makeup are up there with some of my faves. BUT AN ADVENT CALENDAR FULL OF VODKA?! Hun, pass me that trophy cos I'm about to award my favourite advent calendar idea to DATE to Drinks by the Dram - & probably weep in triumph whilst doing so.

Wow.

The company first launched its line of advent calendars in 2012, starting off with just The Whisky Advent Calendar. Since then, the range has grown year-on-year; always showcasing the most exciting liquids across each category and price bracket. Some of the 2018 collection includes:

Whisky, Premium Whisky, Old & Rare Whisky, Very Old & Rare Whisky, World Whisky, Scotch Whisky, Bourbon, Japanese Whisky, American Whiskey, Irish Whiskey, Single Cask Whisky, Gin, Vodka, Rum, Cognac, Tequila, Armagnac, Mezcal and Absinthe. So there's something for whatever tipple floats ya proverbial boat!

Speaking of the 2018 collection - some of Drinks by the Dram's classic calendar favourites [which are unsurprisingly known & loved by many, many people] have taken on more of a global feel this year; featuring the finest liquids from several different countries. 

Some of the most popular calendars in the collection are the classic Whisky calendar, Tequila, Scotch Whisky, Bourbon, Rum and Gin - each containing 24 wax-sealed 30ml drams of fine global spirits. But as I don't really drink many of these spirits [regularly anyway] I decided to opt for the Drinks of the Dram Vodka Advent Calendar* to review in this post.

I properly LOVE the cute, classic and festive packaging of my Vodka Advent Calendar; which houses 24 super cute small-batch vodkas, flavoured vodkas & wheat-based spirits. It has some pretty big names in there [I nearly died when I saw the Grey Goose bottles] from famous distilleries, boutique producers and exotic locations around the globe. 

At £149.95 it's not the cheapest calendar on the market... but it's still cheaper than many of the high-end beauty calendars & something you'll be able to enjoy alone or with friends in the countdown to Christmas. And for someone passionate about vodka, it makes a brilliant gift. You can pick one up for yourself via Master of Malt or other fine alcohol retailers [it's £99.95 on their site, rather than the full £150 FYI.] 

And I can confirm guys that I've done some extensive testing, & that the vodkas inside the calendar are bloody fantastic; the proof of which being how smashed / on form I was at the Alex Silver PR event this week!
