Drinks by the Dram Rum Advent Calendar

By In Cocktails
Launched in 2010 Drinks by the Dram aimed at offering whisky enthusiasts a simple way to sample new releases of single malts at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a full bottle. THe range has grown over the years to encompass over 6,000 spirits. While whisky forms the backbone there are now rums, gins, tequilas, mescal and so on in the range. The idea of buying small samples to discover and experiment is an attractive one; especially as many limited editions are expensive.

The ‘try before you buy’ concept is replicated in their innovative advent calenders – the one featured here is for rum but gin, whisky and spirits versions are also available. There are 26 options to select from ranging in price from £99 to £150.

“A splendid Advent Calendar filled to the brim with 24 of the finest rums, including white, dark, agricole and spiced, hailing from across the world. Contains 24 different, handmade 30ml wax-sealed drams from across the globe.
Boutique producers and world-renowned distilleries From light and sweet to dark and complex Award-winning rums from famous distilleries RRP £149.95” Drinks by The Dram

It seemed a shame not to use this marvellous collection as a proper advent calendar – but for review purposes I had to delve in and crack open a few of the samples. The range is impressive suitable for sipping over ice or for mixing into a whole range of rum cocktails.

The Drinks by the Dram Rum Advent Calendar was supplied as a sample but all thoughts are of the author.
