If you’re looking for a super gift for the whiskey-lover in your life, look no further than the Whisky Advent Calendar from Drink by the Dram! Now admittedly, most advent calendars are intended to run starting December 1, but I doubt anyone would complain that they might have to open a few of the doors a little late, especially considering that there are 1 oz. samples of some of the world’s greatest whiskeys waiting behind them. Throughout the month of December, whisky lovers can sample different flavors of single malt Scotch whisky, bourbon, rye, and other succulent spirits from Scotland, the US, Japan and beyond.
In addition to the standard whiskey calendar, there are also Premium versions and a Ginvent calendar if you already gave the whiskey edition last year. (Apparently, Dipsomaniac is not on your gift list. Sad face.) The gift includes tasting notes to help educate you on the treasures concealed within, so you’ll also be giving the gift of knowledge.
You can buy the advent calendars online at www.masterofmalt.com. These aren’t cheap gifts at £99.95 to £249.95, but when you’re gift-giving, you might as well just ignore that funky little cursive “l” squiggle anyway. Pretend it stands for a quarter instead of a British pound. I’ll be waiting by my mailbox.
