It’s that part of September where we pretend it’s fall, even though it’s still weeks away. But if fall can creep into the calendar, and pumpkin spice drinks can, then why can’t advent calendars too?
flaviar offers a whiskey advent calendar every year. It is an extremely popular collection of drinks and has already sold out quickly. The Whiskey Advent Calendar – formerly Whiskeys of the World or, last year, Whiskeys of the Galaxy – brings together dozens of whiskeys from around the world. Some drams contain rare or hard-to-find sips that you might have trouble finding otherwise.
Pre-orders have already opened for this year’s edition. Although it is not cheap. This year’s box costs $260. If you pre-order, you can take $20 off the experience. Details on the arrival date are not precise, with the company’s FAQ stating that the whiskey will arrive between October and November.
The calendar contains 24 drams of 1.7 ounce whiskey that can take you to a new whiskey tasting spot with every door you open. Each year the content changes as the company curates a curated selection of enticing spirits selected throughout the year.
The box also contains a Glencairn glass, a leather coaster and a tasting journal so you can take notes on your favorite drams. In previous years, the box and the tasting guide have been beautifully designed to enhance each tasting.
Flaviar never goes into too much detail about what you’ll find inside, but he’s teased so far that you’ll find whiskey from the US, Ireland, Japan and Australia. It also promises you’ll get Scotch, Bourbon, and Rye varieties inside, probably among others. He further revealed that you will see whiskey from Rieger’s Kansas City Whiskey, Keeper’s Heart Irish + American Whiskey and Akashi Blended Malt. The rest of the box will be a surprise when it arrives, but whiskey lovers are sure to find drinks they’ll love.
