It’s that time of year once again, when Drinks by the Dram has teamed up with Gin Foundry for the second time to bring you this little festive number… The Ginvent Calendar – a gin-filled Advent calendar featuring award-winning spirits from the world’s top distilleries. The perfect gift for gin-lovers, the Ginvent Calendar includes hand-selected spirits from all over the globe. Highlights include Bathtub Gin – the World’s Best Compound Gin; FEW American Gin – Gold Medalist at the American Craft Spirits Association; the newly established Helsinki Gin; the Australian craft-distilled Four Pillars; and gin from Spanish urban distillery, Santamanía.
The calendar also contains a world-exclusive gin made by the artisanal Cornish-based SouthWestern Distillery – Tarquin’s Hedgerow Edition – of which a single batch has been distilled exclusively for the Ginvent Calendar 2015.
Gin connoisseurs can also enjoy the Botanical Ginvent Calendar which contains 23 different botanically-focused gins, as well as a sample of the base gin from which each variety was made, for comparison. This allows gin lovers to appreciate the precise influence of different gin botanicals such as coriander, saffron, cassia and, of course, juniper; as well as to create their own bespoke gin by blending the samples.
The Ginvent Calendar (£114.95) and the Botanical Ginvent Calendar (£124.95) will be widely available at retailers including Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Fortnum and Mason and online at Firebox, Ocado, Amazon, Gin Foundry and Master of Malt. They are currently available for pre-order now at Master of Malt and Gin Foundry, shipping in October.
