The Christmas season always offers a sleigh full of boozy delights, from endless supplies of mulled wine, to adults-only hot chocolates and warm-your-hands cider…

To save you from ever running dry, a boozy advent calendar may be just the thing to warm your cockles on those cold winter nights. From the gin advent calendar, to whisky to prosecco, whatever your favourite tipple is, there’s an alcohol advent calendar for everyone…

The Boutique-y Gin Advent Calendar

Brand new for 2017, this is no ordinary gin advent calendar. Described as ‘convention-defying’ this is a must-have for real gin lovers. You can enjoy 25 3ml bottles with a huge mix of flavours. There is even a gin made with botanicals from space, yes really!

The Gin Advent Calendar

John Lewis are offering this incredibly pretty gin advent calendar. Sure, it will set you back £100, but for you’ll get to try a different 5cl bottle of gin every single day in the run up to Christmas. It’s not available to buy yet – but watch this space…

The Rum Advent Calendar

Featuring 24 of “the very finest rums known to mankind, from award-winning Caribbean and British Navy-style, to spiced rum and boutique spirits” this rum filled advent calendar is at the top of our lists this year… Retailing last year for £149.94, we’ve got our eyes peeled for an Autumn release.

The Bubbly Advent Calendar

We’re no stranger to the thrill of an alternative advent calendar, but a prosecco advent calendar may just be the one for Christmas 2017. The Pip Stop Superstar Sparkling Advent Calendar gifts you with one mini bottle of champagne, cava, or prosecco throughout the month of December.

Although not the most budget friendly (each drink works out to about £5!) which is reasonable considering there are a number of prestigious labels behind those doors (keep an eye out for the Laurent-Perrier…)

The Wine Advent Calendar

Have a very merry Christmas with this festive wine advent calendar. Each door reveals a mystery miniature of white, red, rose, and even chocolate wine… Of course, there’s a mulled one in there too. The 24 187ml bottles are filled with South African Merlot, Australian Chardonnay, Chilean Sauvignon Blanc and White Zinfandel (to name a few). Chin chin!

They’re now taking pre-orders so be quick!

The Cheaper Wine Advent Calendar

Got your heart set on a wine calendar but can’t quite seem to justify the price of the above? Never fear – we’re hear to offer a cheaper alternative in the form of this £55 one from Iceland!

This option also contains 24 187ml bottles, and has everything from Sauvignon Blanc, Prosecco, and even mulled wine. Convinced? We certainly are! These are also available on Amazon, so if you can’t find one in a selected Iceland store, just hop online and wait for all your boozy dreams to come true.

Chase Distillery Mixed Advent Calendar

Nothing will get you in the ‘spirit’ quite like this mixed advent calendar (perfect for those who just can’t pick). Behind each door sits a 5cl minature of 14 different tipples from vodka to gin and even raspberry liqueur. Last year retailed at £110, for now keep an eye out for the 2007 calendar! Oh, the mystery of it all!

Featuring a combination of 24 x 330ml craft beers from around the world, including lagers, malty stouts, and fruit beers. The perfect gift for the beer lover in your life (it’s ok if that’s you).
