To advent or not to advent. That is the question, I’m guessing millions are asking as this popular method of drinking beer, whiskey, and wine continue to grow in popularity. The Advent calendar counts down the 24 days of December ending on Christmas Eve. The intent of Advent calendars is to teach spiritual richness of the Advent and Christmas season. But for millions, it’s become a three-week drinking game.
And now, you can Advent your way through some pretty good whiskey. The Gamlin Whiskey House Whiskey Advent Calendar, will give you a chance to try new whiskeys throughout the Advent season. This unique calendar includes two dozen 50mL whiskey bottles, including Maker’s Mark, Knob Creek and Jim Beam Black, in hand-painted canvas bags. It is available as a box set for $145, or a 40 inch by 22 inch hand-made wooden Christmas tree for $195.
“This is a great chance for whiskey fans to discover their new favorite whiskey this holiday season,” Gamlin Restaurant Group Proprietor Derek Gamlin says.
The advent calendars are available for pre-order at www.gamlinwhiskeyhouse.com. Orders must be placed by Nov. 15 and will be available for pickup starting Nov. 25 at Gamlin Whiskey House (236 N. Euclid Ave. St. Louis, Missouri 63108).
