Only 19 sleeps until Christmas according to our maths – we've reached day 6 of our awesome Advent Calendars!

The Whisky Advent Calendar – #WhiskyAdvent

Glenfiddich Experimental Series Project XX: This expression boasts an incredibly complex and intriguing character, thanks to the collaboration of 20 malt masters, whose chosen expressions from Glenfiddich Distillery were married by in-house malt master Brian Kinsman to create this unusual single malt.

The Bourbon Advent Calendar – #WhiskeyAdvent


Knob Creek Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey: Named after the creek which flows near where Abraham Lincoln grew up, this stately small-batch bourbon from the makers of Jim Beam is chock full of sweet and spicy notes.

The Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar – #WhiskyAdvent


Peat's Beast: A beast with plenty of beauty from an unnamed distillery, this effort isn’t all smoke and sulphur. There’s sweet and meat among the peat in this beach barbecue of a dram.

Michter's US*1 Straight Rye: From the Michter's Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky, every bottle of this straight rye whiskey comes from a single barrel, and every single bottle is utterly gorgeous.

White Oak Akashi Single Malt 5 Year Old (cask 1373): Made at the White Oak distillery in Hyogo, near Kyoto, this single cask dream is one of two options out there in Japanese calendars today. 


Golden Horse Musashi: This impressive, little-known gem is the pure malt expression from the Golden Horse range, which was re-launched in 2016. With soft fruit, earthy vanilla and a hint of coffee, this tasty tipple justifies the return.

The Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar – #WhiskeyAdvent

Irish Single Malt #1 -  13 Year Old: The second lovely horse of the day, this 13-year-old single malt whiskey from an undisclosed Irish distillery complete with a label inspired by a very famous comedy series is an incredibly fruity and lusciously sweet affair that was bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company.

The Single Cask Whisky Advent Calendar – #WhiskyAdvent


Port Dundas 2004 12 Year Old: The Port Dundas distillery sadly closed in 2011, so think of it as a Christmas miracle that Clan Denny managed to bottle this 12 Year Old in May 2017 after distillation in July 2004, bringing its complex and delicious array of flavours into your lives this holiday season.

The Premium Whisky Advent Calendar – #WhiskyAdvent

Glenfarclas 25 Year Old: Bringing stunning Speyside sophistication to proceedings, the Glenfarclas 25 Years Old is a genuine classic from the region, combining delicate sweetness, warm spice, wisps of smoke and soft buttery goodness in one sumptuous, sherried expression.

The Old & Rare Whisky Advent Calendar – #WhiskyAdvent

Mortlach 25 Year Old: Matured mostly in refill American oak casks for a quarter of a century before bottling, this 2014 Mortlach single malt Scotch release is an utterly stunning and compelling dram that’s sure to bring some Christmas cheer!

The Very Old & Rare Whisky Advent Calendar – #WhiskyAdvent

Whisky 6 (1).png

Glenfiddich 40 Year Old Limited Edition (Release Number 12): Definitely very old and absolutely very rare, the highly celebrated, limited edition Glenfiddich 40 year old uses a 'remnant vatting' process, which means some of the previous batch is carried over each time and vatted with the casks selected for the new release.

The Gin Advent Calendar – #GinAdvent


Edinburgh Gin Cannonball Navy Strength: Inspired by Edinburgh's naval heritage, the vibrant botanical selection and punchy, navy-strength ABV gives this hearty tipple a booming character that’s brimming with strong juniper, zesty lemon and lingering spices.

The Rum Advent Calendar – #RumAdvent


El Dorado 15 Year Old: Striking gold with its 15 Year Old, El Dorado matured this beauty in bourbon barrels after it was pot-distilled, and created a rum that was duly rated the best in the world at the International Wine and Spirit Competition for four years running.

The Cognac Advent Calendar – #CognacAdvent


Frapin 12 Years Old Cask Strength (cask 1900): It’s not often you see a Cognac from a single cask, with an age statement and bottled at 40% ABV, so this this beautiful Grande Champagne release from the fantastic House of Frapin is a real seasonal treat.

The Tequila Advent Calendar – #TequilaAdvent


Sauza Hornitos Reposado: Sauza ‘rested’ this 100% agave release in 10,000 gallon vats called pipones post-double distillation to create an intricate, refined reposado.

The Armagnac Advent Calendar – #ArmagnacAdvent

Baron de Sigognac XO Platinum: Expertly blended and bottled eaux-de-vie aged for at least six years, this fine addition to the Baron de Sigognac collection offers notes of dried fruits, honey, butterscotch and rancio, making it an exceptional example of an XO Armagnac.

The Vodka Advent Calendar – #VodkaAdvent


Skyy Infusions Passion Fruit: Skyy quadruple-distilled and triple-filtered this vodka with the natural flavours of exotic passion fruit, peach and mango, giving you a tropical twist to this season of winter-y wonderment.
