Christmas Is Months Away, but This Whiskey-Filled Advent Calendar Is Sure to Sell Out by September
Last year’s version lasted two weeks.
The holidays are a ways away, but with 2020 being what it is, we’re down for some early seasonal spirit. Brands are already releasing food-themed advent calendars, and the latest to catch our eye is a whiskey-filled counter sure spread holiday cheer .
Flaviar, an alcohol subscription service that focuses on rare, diverse spirits, is bringing back its popular Whiskies of the World Advent Calendar. This year’s version features premium sips from around the globe, including from major producers like Scotland and Japan, as well as niche offerings from countries like Israel and India. But you’ll want to act fast if you want to give it a try—the 2019 calendar sold out in just a few weeks.
From single malts to rich blends, the 2020 calendar holds two dozen 1.7-ounce vials of award-winning whiskies. While each day is a surprise, the Flaviar team has revealed that selections include Tennessee’s Uncle Nearest Bourbon, Kilchoman 2010 Vintage from Islay’s farm distillery, and an impressive release from Compass Box.
The boozy countdown makes an excellent gift for adventurous spirits. It comes with everything they need to appreciate the flavorful tour: a Glencairn whiskey tasting glass, a coaster, and a tasting notes booklet, so they know exactly what they’re sipping.
Yes, we’re still technically still enjoying summer. But Flaviar’s last advent calendar sold out by September, and we don’t expect this one to be any different. Plus, the pandemic’s impact on shipping times across the country has us ordering all of our holiday gifts ahead of the rush. All calendars ship in early November, so they’re ready to gift before December 1 rolls around.
The best part of planning ahead? Whiskey of the World Advent Calendars typically cost $250, but are just $225 if you purchase right now. Order yours today and you’ll enjoy holiday cheers all December long.
