Santa Go Boom

I noticed the Christmas lights were suddenly hanging in the streets of Paris today, as if they had been installed on some covert mission to begin force-feeding us with merry Christmas joy.

Of course once you’ve passed the age of twelve, Christmas for you only means being slightly drunker and getting a little fatter. But fear not my little twinkle elves! Being a pudgy alcoholic this year just got better. Forget those cheap milk chocolate excuses for an advent calendar and hold out your arms to embrace the alcoholic advent calendar…

The Whisky Advent Calendar

Behind each of the 24 doors is a different 3cl sample of delicious whisky, i.e., 24 days of holiday cheer in the form of a tiny bottle of booze. Each day is a surprise and but behind one of the doors is a sample of 50 year old single malt Scotch whisky, the full-sized bottle of which is worth $550!

Order your Drinks by Dram Whisky Advent Calendar in time to take the edge off of Christmas brainwashed consumerism shopping!

And if straight whisky is not your thing, I found some alternatives…

*Maybe half-bottles for weekdays would be a smart decision.

I guess this would be a good time to say, drink responsibly folks.
