The best gin advent calendars for Christmas 2021 including Drinks by the Dram and Whitley Neill
The countdown to Christmas has begun, and what better way to mark each day than with a gin advent calendar.
Forget the traditional chocolate advent, as there’s so many more options to choose from, especially if you’re a gin lover.
They are a great way to try new flavours and independent brands, or to just enjoy your favourite bottles in the lead up to Christmas.
And don’t worry, as the bottles are usually no bigger than 30ml, so you won’t be having a totally boozy festive season (unless that’s what you want).
Below we’ve put together a list of some of the best ones you can get, as well as prices and what’s included.

Drinks by the Dram Premium Gin Advent Calendar
This one features 24 different gins from around the world. They’re presented in 30ml wax-sealed bottles with Hendrick’s, Tanqueray, Edinburgh and Moonshot gin included by 21 distilleries from nine countries.
Premium Pink Gin Advent Calendar
If pink gin is your preferred tipple then you can get this calendar which features flavours including raspberry gin, rose petal gin, bramble gin and strawberry gin to name a few.
It’s already proving popular and customers can pre-order it now from The Bottle Club, with a shipping date of 18 November, just in time for the Christmas countdown.
Blue Tree Gin Advent Calendar
This option, by Blue Tree Gifts, contains 24 5cl gins, including Bombay Sapphire, Kopparberg gin, Gordon’s and more.
It features plenty of bottles you can get in the supermarket – so if you wanted to try some new gins this year then this one might not be for you.
However if you just want a familiar gin treat during the countdown to Christmas then this is perfect for you.
This one is available from Amazon here.
Giant Gin Advent Cracker
This giant cracker filled with gin is sure to make a statement during the festive countdown.
It features a selection of 24 flavoured gins and gin liqueurs for you to enjoy.
This option is pretty pricey, at £144.95, but if gin is your go-to then it’s an ideal way to get into the Christmas spirit, literally.
That Boutique-y Gin Company Advent Calendar
This one features 24 different wax-sealed glass drams by nine distilleries from four countries.
It’s a decent price at £49.95, but your selection isn’t as varied as some of the other calendars on this list, as the majority of gins are from UK-based distilleries.
Whitley Neill Gin Advent Calendar
This luxury option features a premium bottle every day in the run-up to Christmas. It features 24 variations of the spirit from around the world alongside British-distilled gins.
It also includes a pairing book that details tasting notes, serving suggestions and the back story of all the gins in the calendar.
To get this one head to Amazon.
So this one isn’t technically an advent calendar but it’s still ideal for the festive season.
The Pickering’s Gin Baubles set features six colourful flavours including Christmas Clementine, Festive Cranberry, Spiced Pear and Cinnamon, Figgy Pudding, Plum and Ginger and Brussels Sprout Gin, yes really.
They each come in a bauble with a gold ribbon, so you can hang them on your tree, if you’re patient enough. The set also contains cocktail recipes and serving suggestions.
The set is priced at £24.95 and you can get it from Amazon here.
