Last year I was fortunate enough to be able to share the Drinks by the Dram The Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar, which was a 24 day advent calendar with lots of different Scotch whiskies. This year, Drinks by the Dram have launched many different advent calendars in any tipple you can think of such as vodka, gin, rum, cognac and even tequila. However if you or your loved one are a whisky fan, they have multiple different whisky advent calendars, and this year I have another whisky advent calendar to share with you; the Drinks by the Dram The Whisky Explorer Advent Calendar 2019. The Drinks by the Dram The Whisky Explorer Advent Calendar is £99.95 and available to purchase from the Master of Malt website.
The Drinks by the Dram advent calendars vary in price between £49.95 to an eye watering £9999.95, and there are so many amazing designs. The Drinks by the Dram The Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar 2018 had a bold teal, Celtic theme which complemented the many Scotch whiskies perfectly.
The Whisky Explorer Advent Calendar has a slightly more understated design, with a dark wood effect box which I actually prefer and I like that the calendar runs all the way upto the 24th of December.
“Get whisk-ied away on an advent adventure with this exciting calendar, drammed full of whiskies from around the world. From Scottish special reserves to brilliant bourbons, countdown to Christmas with exciting expressions from some of the world’s best distilleries. 24 days, 24 drams, 24 chances to discover incredible whiskies.”
- 24 different, handmade 30ml wax-sealed drams
- Explore whiskies from across the globe
- Everything from Scottish special reserves to brilliant bourbons
- Award-winning whiskies from famous distilleries
Behind every cardboard window, there’s a 3cl / 30ml glass bottle of whisky. Each of the bottles have a cream, textured label with the brand, or distillery name plus the name of the whisky too. Each of the drams are handmade, and sealed with black wax to ensure the whisky’s freshness and you simply pull the wax tab and it peels away from around the top of the bottle. Underneath the wax, the bottles all have screw caps and I think the wax seal makes a really nice touch.
I have a full contents reveal of the Drinks by the Dram The Whisky Explorer Advent Calendar, so keep on reading if you’d like to see the whiskies within the calendar.. *Spoiler Alert*

So they are all twenty four of the wax sealed drams inside the Drinks by the Dram The Whisky Explorer Advent Calendar. It truly is an amazing advent calendar, and you could purchase it for yourself, or as a gift, or even purchase it to then split the 24 bottles up to gift to multiple people as Christmas gifts. If you have a whisky connoisseur in your life, they would be seriously over the moon to receive this calendar, and my other half is delighted with it as he loves whisky.
It’s such a brilliant way to try brands and distilleries you’ve perhaps never come across before, and also introduces you to whiskies from other countries too. If whisky isn’t your thing, as I already mentioned, Drinks by the Dram have many different drink based advent calendars to choose from, and they’re all available right here.
