With December just a few weeks away, ‘tis the season to start thinking about advent calendars. While chocolate and even cereal advent calendars are fun, family friendly options, those adults who want to toast to the magic of the holiday season (or just find a way to cope with its many stresses) have a new option available thanks to the geniuses at Heritage Distilling Co.

That’s right: liquor advent calendars are real, and they’re spectacular. For just $49 plus shipping, each day from December 1st through Christmas Eve reveals a bounty of boozy delight. The 12 options range from a plethora of flavored vodkas to to ryes and bourbons that ensure each day of the season is filled with warmth, merriment, and liquor. One day you might be tipping back with a seasonally-tinged option like coffee vodka while you get lit like the tree you’re decorating, while another might ensure you have a necessary dose of Elk Rock Bourbon at the ready when your inlaws walk through the door.

This Noel-themed alcohol offering isn’t the only of its kind. Supermarket chain Aldi is selling a wine advent calendar in the UK, and Master of Malt has a scotch whiskey calendar on offer as well. But Heritage Distilling’s advent calendar looks to offer enough variety to keep things fresh at a price point that won’t make you feel guilty about treating yourself before you cross everyone else off your Christmas shopping list. Grab yours and toast to a new way to spread some christmas cheer.
