Countdown to Christmas, with booze!

Michael Peters – 26th Oct 2018

Chocolate advent calendars, why do we do it to ourselves?

It's the worst tasting chocolate, formed into the vaguest of Christmas shapes, rationed out in 24 equally depressing portions.

This year, why not ditch the boring chocolate and count down to Christmas with a calendar full of luxury spirits instead?

Each one of our Advent Calendars contains 24 wax-sealed drams of delicious premium booze - including rare artisan alcohol as well as popular market-leaders, award winners and exciting new releases!

December can be a pretty hectic month - just think, you could kickstart each morning with a hearty shot of dutch courage - or return home to a warm, boozy embrace.

Or you could treat each day as a new excuse to create a gourmet cocktail.

OR you could just enjoy it for intoxicating journey it is - where else do you get to sample and savour so many unique spirits from all over the world?

Take your pick from three festive tipples:

The Whisky Advent Calendars

The Whisky Advent Calendar

We won't give the game away and tell you exactly which luxury liquors are inside. Just know that it's not just Scotch, but a currated selection of some of the most sought-after whiskies from around the globe.

The Gin Advent Calendar

The Gin Advent Calendar

FIVE! COLD! GINS! Well, 24 actually - and these juniper-infused delights are probably a pleasant room temperature unless you decide put your calendar in the fridge.

The Rum Advent Calendar

The Rum Advent Calendar

White, dark, spiced, Navy Strength, agricole - it's got it all. And the thought of whipping up an extravagant Mojito or a 'Dark and Stormy' every day until Christmas is very, very appealing.

Laugh in the face of boring chocolate advent calendars and drink your way to a boozy Christmas crescendo.

Oh and try not to miss days out, no one wants to knock back four gins on the trot... or do they?

Note: Firebox always encourages lots and lots of very responsible drinking.
