The magic of Christmas is, admittedly, mainly for kids but there’s no reason why us adults can’t have a bit of fun in the run up to the big day too.
The Gin to My Tonic have created a 12 day gin advent calendar, starting on 13 December, which they describe as a “festive journey of gin discovery.”
The makers want to make each morning as exciting as they can, therefore the exact gins included are a highly-guarded secret.
What we are told is that the calendar contains a generous 50ml serve of gin behind each door in the form of a cute miniature bottle.
The gins themselves will be lesser-known premium craft gins, so chances are you will be discovering something new.
The gins will be from all four corners of the UK; the aim being to celebrate craft distilling, to introduce you to some new favourite gins and to have a jolly good time doing it.
Expect a mixture of traditional, floral, citrus, herbaceous and fruit-inspired gins, all 37.5% ABV and above (no liqueurs).
The Gin to My Tonic say that they’ve gone for a 12 day calendar over the traditional 24 day calendar because they found themselves losing the excitement about halfway through and wanted to concentrate all the excitement on the last 12 most magical days before Christmas.
For those who want to know more about the gins they are drinking, the makers will be providing daily social media posts on each gin once the windows have been opened.
These posts will contain the backstory behind the gins, botanical make-up, tasting notes and perfect serves to add some depth to your journey of gin discovery.
The Gin to My Tonic Gin Advent Calendar is available to buy from The Gin Kin Shop priced at £50.craftcraft
