After a pretty horrid year (the less said about Trump, the better), you’d be forgiven for thinking that Christmas is going to be a bit of a let-down this year. However, thanks to a whole new range of gin-based treats on offer, 2016’s festivities look set to be the booziest and most brilliant ever.
Yup, you read that correctly: gin advent calendar. We’ll just let that sink in for a moment…

Gone are the days of fumbling for a square of chocolate behind a tiny cardboard door; we’re grown-ups now, and, as such, we’re in need of a slightly more decadent advent calendar.
Which is why this new creation from Ginvent has got us so excited.
So what’s inside?
Well, the 2 x 2 metre calendar contains 24 different types of gin – each one of which has been specially selected as “the very best, the most unusual, the most progressive, and, most of all, the most sublimely delicious”, according to the creators themselves.
And these types vary from London Dry to Old Tom, to Navy strength, Fruit infused to name but a few.
Better still, the people at Ginvent have insisted upon this being a shared experience. So, when you unveil your teeny bottle of mother’s ruin at home, you can sign in to their social media platforms to join in with their live tastings.
They will also be publishing tasting notes, as well as G&T suggested serves, to ensure you get the absolute most out of each and every last drop.
“We hope that by doing this, anyone who wants to peel back the layers and discover a little about the people involved in the spirits can find a perfect platform to learn more,” they explain.
Obviously this is going to set you back a little more than the average choccy advent from your local supermarket – but, for £124.95, you will enjoy 24 gin cocktails from the comfort of your own home.
Which, when you consider the average price of a drink out on the town, is no small feat.
Fancy one of your own? Head to Ginvent now, before they sell out; it’s a guaranteed ticket to the merriest Christmas you’ve ever had…
