Aldi is launching a gin advent calendar and it’s based on the 12 days of Christmas

With the festive season approaching, Aldi is launching their very own gin advent calendar that’ll keep track of just how many days are left until Christmas.

After the recent success of their wine advent calendar, Aldi didn’t want gin lovers to feel left out. As a result you will soon be able to find The 12 Gins of Christmas advent calendar as part of the supermarket’s seasonal gin range – along with some gin crackers as well!

Other than the aesthetically pleasing packaging, the calendar consists of twelve doors that hide a range of specially selected mini bottles of gin.

All of these are looking to help you quench your thirst for the juniper-based spirit. To top it all off, this advent calendar comes with a tonic to complement each gin style (yes, they have thought about everything).

The 12 Gins of Christmas will retail for £34.99

Some of the gins that you should expect to find in this advent calendar are Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin, Tanqueray Dry Gin and Gordon’s Dry Gin.

However, Aldi’s festive range includes other brands of gin as part of their Autumn/Winter range as well, so don’t worry about limiting only to the above brands.

Alongside the 12 Gins of Christmas you can also find gin crackers which will add a playful twist to any Christmas dinner.

Each pack contains six table crackers with a miniature bottle of gin (per pull).

You’ll be able to find these gin crackers for the retail price of £19.99, while the gin advent calendar will retail for £34.99.

Be sure to pick yours up as soon as you can. Once they’re gone, they’re gone, as Aldi tends to remind us!

The 12 Gins of Christmas and the Gin Crackers launch on Aldi’s festive range this Friday 9th November and in-store from 14th November.
