It's hard to deny, but most of us Brits just love to drink, In fact, the UK is officially the drunkest nation on earth, research suggests. When it comes to the holidays, one way a lot of us enjoy the season is through toasting to family and friends. That's why we're very excited to tuck into some alcohol advent calendars this year.
There's nothing quite like enjoying a nice glass of red with your roast, curling up by the fire with a tipple of whiskey, or clearing up the beer bottles from a late night with your mates. However you choose to spend the festive season, the one thing that holds us as a nation together is our love of alcohol.
So if you're wanting to move away from the more traditional advent calendar and looking for something with a new twist, boozy advent calendars might just be the way to go. FromThe Snaffling Pig Co's Beer and Crackling Advent Calendar, to Menkind's 12 Days of Prosecco, there's something for everyone.
And what better way to spend December than 24 mini bottles of gin?
