Best alcohol advent calendars 2021: Wine, spirits and beer
From 12 days of wine to 24 days of whiskey, advent calendars filled with alcohol are a great way to get through the Christmas madness.
Advent calendars have come a long since the days of opening up little cardboard doors to reveal chocolate treats as a child. These days they can be filled with all sorts of goodies like beauty products, cheese, LEGO, hot sauce, and of course the reason you've landed on this page - alcohol.
The lead up to Christmas can be stressful, so why not get in on the fun with your very own R18 version of an advent calendar? No matter what your favourite tipple, there are numerous options to choose from that cater for both budget and top-shelf drinkers. Celebrate the 12 days of Christmas with a different wine each day, or perhaps you'd like to sample a new vodka or whiskey variant on each day of December?
To help you find the perfect drinking companion for the festive season, we've put together the best advent calendars for wine, beer and spirits to buy in 2021.
The Whisky Loot Advent Calendar is a premium option for whiskey lovers, featuring tasters from Scotland, USA, Japan, Ireland, India and Australia. The beautifully presented box comes with 24 x 30ml bottles so you can enjoy a different variant every evening from 1 December until Christmas Eve.
This advent calendar has been extremely popular, with early bird pre-sales now sold out. You can still pick one up now at the final release price and it will be shipped by 20 November.
If you're more of a top-shelf kind of person, Whiskey Loot also has the Premium Advent Calendar with 12 x 60ml bottles. Alternatively, you can opt for an advent calendars with gin or mixed spirits if you prefer something other than whiskey.
