Of course, we have kept an eye out for all of the gin advent calendars that have been advertised this year. From larger distilleries to boutique family-run establishments, you will be surprised how many different brands are getting on board and how much choice you now have. Don’t worry if you’re not sure which one to buy, Vemacity have put together a list of the very best in 2019 to help narrow down your choices.
Fever-Tree gin and tonic
Any gin and tonic lover will gladly have this advent calendar this festive season. This Advent calendar doesn’t just provide you with the mini bottles of gin as you’d expect, you also get some incredible tonics so your Christmas drinks are sorted. The calendar has the standard 24 doors, 12 50ml bottles of craft gins and 12 150ml cans of Fever-Tree’s Tonic Water. You can expect gins from top brands, including Tanqueray, Hendricks's Gin and Sipsmith.
Drinks by the Dram
Again this year Drinks by the Dram have brought us a range of amazing gin advent calendars. Amongst the 4 you can choose from on their site they have a fun, unique gin calendar for anyone who is looking to try something new. It includes 24 different wax-sealed glass drams by 17 distilleries from 5 countries. You can explore gins from across the world including boutique producers and world-renowned brands with their gin explorer calendar.
The Bottle Club premium pink gin
Pink gin has been the gin to turn even those who hate gin into gin lovers and, now you can get an advent calendar full of all of the pink gin favourites. You will find big brands such as Beefeater, Gordons and Whitley Neill as well as smaller brands like Tiptree, Coastal Distillery and Edgerton. Some may say that the only downside to this calendar is that you only get 12 bottles rather than 24.
The English Drink Company
Ok, so this advent calendar is a little bit different. You will get a large 70cl bottle of classic pink gin and then 24 different flavours of tonics to mix with this big bottle. Besides the fact this is another calendar that is perfect for anyone who is pink-gin obsessed, you will also get to try more kinds of tonic water than you ever thought existed. Mix different flavours together and find your new favourite combination with the help of this advent calendar.
Virgin Wines gin
This is their first-ever gin advent calendar, it features 24 mini bottles of gin from around the world. You will find a range of premium bottles such as Old Tom and London Dry and you will also be treated to lesser-known delights such as the Japanese inspired Kokoro Gin and the award-winning Silent Pool Gin. Of course, there are some British favourites too including Sipsmith and Edinburgh Gin.
First 4 Hampers
You might not have heard of this company and you can thank us later for this one. Not only do they do the most incredible range of gin advent calendars but they also have a selection of other alcohol calendars too. Our favourite is probably the flavoured gin cracker which contains 24 mini bottles of flavoured gins and gin liqueurs. There is a range of both famous and lesser-known gins, all of which are perfect for anyone who prefers a flavoured gin.
Choosing your calendar
Whichever calendar you choose from the six we have mentioned above, we can assure you that your lead up to Christmas will be amazing this year. Ensure that you have your fish bowl gin glasses, a bag of ice and a range of mixers to make the most of your advent calendar.
