Count down the days to Christmas with Drinks by the Dram Advent Calendars

These grown-up gin and whisky advent calendars feature 24 unique bottles of booze behind each window.

Who says kids get to have all the fun? This year, in the ultimate act of self-care, we're gifting ourselves a very grown-up advent calendar.

Elevate your holidays with Drink by the Dram's adult take on the build-up to the big day. Instead of chocolates, their calendars features a unique 30ml bottle of booze to reveal each day. The bottles feature hand-illustrated labels and are designed with a bit of holiday whimsy as well as a wax-sealed top for a luxe touch. Plus, it’s the first time these calendars are being sold in Canada.

Because we're all individual snowflakes, the makers of the spirit-filled calendars and tasting sets have created a couple of types to choose from. While we certainly wouldn't scoff at waking up to a new dram (Whisky Advent Calendar, $199.95) every day in December, we're smitten with the gin calendar. Expect an array of flavoured and unique spirits as well as seasonal specialties. The Gin Advent Calendar features a Yuletide Gin with gold flakes, spit-roasted pineapple gin and a cold brew coffee gin. It’s the perfect pre-holiday gift for the boozy besties in your life.

Or treat yourself to one to help keep your gin up over a busy festive season. After all, we have been very good all year.
