Gin Foundry, your one-stop-shop for the best in UK gin, will once again be encouraging those counting down the days to Christmas to skimp on the chocolates, and instead try twenty five different types of gin with their #Ginvent calendars.

Gin Foundry describes them as such:

Behind each of the 24 windows lies a different 3cl sample of fantastic gin. There are market leaders and artisanal treats alongside new brands and even some hard-to-find gems. To accompany the calendar, we will be releasing each day information about each gin on as well as free daily Twitter tastings to take part in, great way to share your thoughts with other fellow gin lovers.

There’s also a botanical version of their #Ginvent calendar, which offers the gekkiest of gin fans a chance to explore 23 botanical distillates with a base gin while they wait to open presents.

Both calendars are available here, and if the thought of spending countless hours shopping and spending time with distant family makes you as nervous as it does me, you’ll be wanting to get your hands on one well before December 1st.
