Gin has been a popular spirit for hundreds of years, and in more recent times has gained a significant boost in sales as the ‘hipster’s favourite’ (certainly in the UK anyway).
Gin advent calendars are a thing of sheer genius. They come in a few different types – some with a whole bottle of gin and different tonics, and others with small bottle of different gins. Either way they all give you a chance to indulge in some lovely gin once a day in the run up to Christmas! Advent has never been so enjoyable…
