Last year we told you about a gin advent calendar that you could get locally.
Well the good news is, the online store now has 2 advent calendars for you to choose from this year. We’ve also found more gin advent calendars for you to choose from!
The Local Craft Ginvent Calendar features 24 different locally distilled gins in 30ml sealed bottles, while the Imported Ginvent Calendar contains 24 X 30ml daily drams curated by dailydrams.com. These gins come from all over Europe, with 8 of them not available in South Africa.
According to the website, the That Boutique-y Gin Company Advent Calendar has “an extraordinary haul of festive spirits”.
The site also says that “every day throughout December juniper fans can sample a convention-defying 3cl gin sample from the world’s first independent gin bottler.”
The regular Gin Advent Calendar contains 24 gins from around the wrold – perfect for someone who wants to sample new and exciting flavours.

Alexander Gordon founded his world-famous distillery in the Southwark area of London and began creating the style of gin in 1769, and the rest, as they say, is history. You can’t go wrong with this one.
