If you ever needed another reason to get excited about the countdown to Christmas, then I have one right here. To say I’m excited about reaching December 1st is an understatement, as once we hit that milestone, I’ll be able to start opening the windows on my That Boutique-y Gin Company Advent Calendar from Masters of Malt.
What happens when the likes of That Boutique-y Gin Company and Drinks by the Dram team up to create a lip-smacking way for gin enthusiasts to count down to Christmas? They create That Boutique-y Gin Company’s very own Advent Calendar, of course!
The Boutique-y Gin Advent Calendar is a traditional style advent calendar, but with that crucial difference. Instead of finding a chocolate or an image behind each door, instead you will find a gorgeous, christmassy bottle of gin, waxed sealed to avoid pre Christmas spillage.
These are 30ml sample drams that give you the opportunity to taste a new flavour, or just enjoy a little tipple (great if you don’t generally drink in the week). And although I don’t want to totally spoil the surprise, a few of the flavours you will experience, that most definitely have a Christmas feel – chocolate Cherry gin, smoked rosemary gin and chocolate orange gin. I must admit that I’m looking forward to trying the Neroli Gin as I love anything orange flavoured, as well as the Mojito Gin – Conker Spirit that seems to combine my personal favourite cocktail with a touch of Autumn?
An advent calendar is, of course, a brilliant fun way to countdown to Christmas, and a gin filled on like this is proof that the fun is not just confined to children. This could also be a fabulous gift idea to send across the miles as the calendar is very securely wrapped for delivery, and it would be such a treat, particularly for someone who has experienced an awful 2021 (and frankly, who hasn’t.)
Masters of Malt have a wide range of advent calendars, so if gin is not your thing, you can take a look at the other choices and a wider range of Christmas gifts here.
