It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! And to make the countdown even more exciting, there are a number of delicious advent calendars out there including some boozy surprises such as Prosecco advent calendar and a selection of 24 wines from famous regions by Aldi. Now we have spotted a gin advent calendar at John Lewis and it just looks like the perfect gift for the drinks aficionado in your life.
The retailer’s Edinburgh Ginadvent calendar contains 25 5cl bottle with different flavours of gin including classic, navy-strength Cannonball gin and briney Seaside gin.
The set comes packed in a glossy light blue box with golden calligraphy and its priced at £100 (€114), which translates to £4 (€4.56) per mini bottle. Given that these are premium gins beautifully packed, while we won’t say it’s cheap, it’s not the worst value.
The announcement makes sense, as according to John Lewis, gin is going to be the drink of choice. As reported on inews.co.uk, Christmas sales for the retailer are already up compared to last year. Dan Cooper, a buyer at John Lewis pointed out that besides bigger Christmas trees and the rise of luxury advent calendars, we’ll “witness gin become the tipple of the season.”
