This year Drinks by the Dram, a company that sells tasting sets of spirits, has 13 Whisky Advent Calendars for you to choose from. Options range from a standard “Whisky Advent Calendar,” which contains 24 different 3cl bottles from around the globe, to a calendar that contains whisky priced at more than $600 a bottle, to a “Very Old and Rare Whisky Advent Calendar,” which includes tiny bottles so precious the calendar will set you back over $11,000.
