For the fourth successive year, we are releasing our highly anticipated advent calendar. Following its sell out success of the past three years, we are upping the ante this year with a Whiskies of the Galaxy Advent Calendar featuring 24 out-of-this-world drams of whisky to help count down to the holiday season. We have produced double the quantity of calendars for 2021, as interest in boozy advent calendars is seemingly insatiable (last year’s calendars were sold out before Q4) . But even that is unlikely to keep up with demand as many whisky lovers often bought calendars two at a time last year, using them as a way to bond with friends and family one dram at a time in the run up to the holidays. Behind each of the 24 portals in the Whiskies of the Galaxy advent calendar is a constellation of new flavors and exclusive drams that will help whisky lovers launch their palate to places it has not been before. The accompanying tasting videos on demand will ensure a deeper learning experience and will make for a fun, interactive way to bond together over delicious drams this holiday season. The 2021 Flaviar advent calendar (image via Flaviar) Flaviar’s Whiskies of the Galaxy advent calendar contains an interstellar selection of premium whiskies which includes an array of small-batch bourbon, Rye, American single malt, as well as whiskies from Japan and Israel, plus some real stars from Scotland and Ireland.
