Advent Calander

2023 Advent Calender

Merry Christmas to you all! Here is the plan for our Advent Calendar celebrations. There is obviously no expectation that you have to follow our plan of cocktails, but it does expose you to some new ways of pairing your gins. Follow along, try some, or just do your own thing - it’s your celebration!

At the start of the week is an ingredients list that covers the whole week. Bear in mind, that it is for one drink, so just buy small amounts. And don’t forget the ice!

Merry Christmas to you all! We hope you enjoy the fun and thank you for being part of our team
