Review: Drinks by The Dram Advent Calendars

Christmas is now over and so that also means our advent calendars have passed. Before December begun, we had received a very excited package from Drinks by The Dram, which you can can read our First Impressions post here and now we will be doing a full review.


Although we knew it could also come in Christmas red packaging, we felt that it could have done with more colour to it’s presentation.

Opening the doors was a struggle everyday, the cardboard was very strong, which I guess is a good thing as you wouldn’t want your little bottles fall out but it really took a good beating to open and eventually was left looking all battered and ugly.


For the amount you pay for and the amount you receive, we thought was actually a very good price. Considering that you get more than we expected in each bottle and the so many different brands and ages you get – we believe you’re getting your monies worth in alcohol and experience.

Each bottle is 3cl which is an equivalent of about a shot and a bit.


If you are a Whisky or Gin lover, or even know others who are, this would make an amazing gift to someone to kick start their December. If you know your quality alcohol, this is for you!

We have to admit that we are both not big drinkers, so we can’t promise you that we stuck to drinking what we opened each day but what we did do was look up some cocktails and experimented with them, as well as taking shots and drinking them straight.


31 Dover, Amazon, Firebox, Fortnum & Mason, Harvey Nichols, Laithwaites’s Wine, Majestic Wine, Master of Malt, Waitress Gifts and more (some shops may vary)

    This is really cool, I really want to get an advent calendar next year but not sure what type to get so an alcohol one would probably be perfect for me x
