Bad news and good news from Drinks by the Dram!

The bad news is that it’s now less than 100 shopping days until Christmas…


The good news is that Drinks by the Dram have released details about their fantastic sprit filled Advent calendars.

Every day in the run up to Christmas whisky lovers can discover 24 drams including a rare 50 year old Scotch, an award winning Japanese whisky and the World Whisky Awards’ Best Blended Scotch 2014′.


This year also sees a Premium Whisky Calendar


As well as The Old and Rare Whisky Advent Calendar


Fans of other sprits are also catered for with Armagnac, Vodka, Gin, Tequila, Mezcal, Absinthe, Bourbon and Rum calendars also available.
