Christmas came Early with the New Bourbon Advent Calendar

Better than chocolate?

It might be hard to believe, but Christmas is around the corner. And Drinks by the Dram is back to make sure those last three weeks are a blur.

Drinks by the Dram launched their first alcoholic Advent Calendar back in 2012 and it flew off the shelves before anyone could say “blackout”. This year, they’re introducing the Bourbon Edition:


Including 24 different types ranging up to $550 a bottle (in full size), the Advent Cal aims to take drinkers on a festive and wobbly journey of discovery through the wonderful world of bourbon. The tasting experience is going for $235 on Master of Malt, plus other editions including gin, rum, tequila, vodka, whiskey – well you get the point.

SPOILER ALERT: if you’re curious to know which bourbons have been chosen for this year’s calendar, scroll down – but they will be randomly placed in each calendar to ensure some element of surprise.
