The iconic Whiskies of the World Advent calendar from the good people at Flaviar is already available for pre-order and while September might sound a little earlier to be worrying about your Advent calendar, they sold out so damn fast last year that folks might need to get on board early if they want one.
If you’re not familiar Advent is the period of anticipation before the birth of Jesus, AKA Christmas Day. Beginning on the the Sunday weeks prior to Christmas morning, many people use a calendar to count the days until Christmas. Often times the calendar reveals a treat or a short story, sometimes a prize or poem, but folks ’round here, we like to booze.
“Flaviar Advent Calendar will introduce you to a new lineup of Whiskies from all around the globe and make the countdown to Christmas flavorful and exciting.”
Featuring 24 different whiskies from all over the world, the Flaviar Whiskies of the World Advent Calendar offers different selections from Scotland, Ireland, the US, Canada, and Japan, and even other lesser known whiskey-making countries like Italy, Israel, India, and the Netherlands.
At a price of $225 bucks, it’s not exactly cheap, but you can you put a price on holiday season happiness? I mean, if you’re going to be dealing with family all month long, you’re going to a drink… or 24. Plus, the collection comes with a Glencairn whisky glass and book of tasting notes.
Imagine waking up every day in December, popping open that little cardboard cutout and unwrapping a brand new whiskey from somewhere around the world, taking a sip, and just for a moment… all is right in the world.
