The Edinburgh Gin Advent Calendar is back and better than ever

While the John Lewis Gin Advent Calendar most definitely got us excited, this latest festive offering is exactly what we’ve been waiting for.

Yes, the Edinburgh Gin Advent Calendar is indeed here and it’s had a stylish makeover fit for 2018. In-between stocking up on gin baubles and sampling Christmas gins, we’d consider this a gin lover’s festive tradition.

This year, you can yet again expect 25 mini 5cl gin bottles behind a seriously stylish front.

Yet, while last year’s box was a wintry cool blue, this latest style comes in a festive green, with a snowy rooftop.

The Scottish distillery has focused on an assortment of plants and trees for the design, which is also reflected in the choices for the gin.

Behind each of the 24 windows, you can expect hints of juniper and pine, as well as floral, lavender, soft spice and citrus.

Whether you love a clean, fresh taste or a spicy on-the-nose gin, you’re sure to find what you love here.

Of course, the contents are a closely guarded secret (as they should be!) but we were delighted to spy four favourites from Edinburgh Gin.

Three of their popular gin liqueurs are included here: Raspberry, Elderflower and Plum & Vanilla.

Meanwhile, their Navy Strength offering, Cannonball, will also make an appearance.

At £120, a gin advent calendar isn’t the most pocket-friendly present you can buy this year, but it is one of the most thrilling.

With one of these in Santa’s sack, the countdown to Christmas is sure to be very merry indeed!

The Edinburgh Gin Advent Calendar is available now for £120 from John Lewis.
