Whisky Advent Calendar

Whisky Advent Calendar

Oh tidings of comfort and joy! One way to get pumped about Christmas is to set up an advent calendar on the first of December. Usually we see calendars filled with toys like LEGO or candy, but here’s another idea: you could start the countdown with twenty-four bottled gulps of different whiskies on the wall. The Whisky Advent Calendar is full of specially selected varieties of whisky that’ll have you as giddy as a kid in a candy store.

Each of the twenty-four bottles is hidden behind its own perforated cardboard door that you have to punch out. You’ve got to work for the finer things in life. When you reach in the door, you will find a small 30ml bottle which is about the volume of a 1-oz shot. Each bottle is labeled and wax-sealed. There’s no telling which door holds the 50-year-old whisky, but you know when you find it that you’re going to have a special kind of day.

Whisky Advent Calendar

  • Advent calendar featuring 24 unique drams
  • Individually waxed and labeled bottles
  • Wide range of handpicked whiskies

To pose a challenge, the whiskies are not placed in linear, numerical fashion. Rather, they are randomly arranged to keep things fun and interesting. Going through this calendar is a light warm-up for what your liver is about to endure towards the end of the month. By the 25th, it should be in top, salubrious shape.

This very unique Whisky Advent Calendar is available for pre-order at Firebox.com and can be ordered from MasterofMalt.com for around £150.

Another nice gift idea for yourself or the whisky buff: Whiskey Stones.


  1. Every time I open this to pour a dram, I get a quick sherry nose, but it disappears at first sip.
    Where is the sherry cask? Yes, it is smooth and elegant, some vanilla, but no sultana finish. Don’t get me wrong, not every 12 yr old needs to be as raisin-y as the Tomatin 12, or Arran 14, but this does not deliver what it promises. Seems more like an American or French Oak that takes up the nose. Not worth the price….the ‘Fine’ oak available only at North American duty-free shops would be the better option
