COLD- you don’t even get a 1l of gin for £60!

Hot. If I have a cheeky swig from a 1litre bottle each morning the missus says I'm an alcoholic. If I open my advent calendar and drink a miniture each morning, she just rolls her eyes and thinks I'm a bit of a character who is way too much into Christmas.

HOT! How can you compare this to a litre of gin? If you want a litre of gin, you buy a litre of gin, end of.
This is something completely different. 24 different gins - its like the chocolate calendars for the kids, but for grown ups!
If you compare the price of OTHER calendars like this - it's way cheaper! John Lewis has one for £125!! I had a quick look online and ALL the others are £100 or more. If you want something like this - its a bargain.

Minitures are 5cl normally.

You get 24...........

Miniatures are normally £3 each, so you get it slightly cheaper with an advent calendar but can't choose the gins. Lets face it though, its the novelty factor. If I had a Morrisons near me I'd get one for the OH.

Has anyone tried the Morrisons Prosecco??

Think there is only 20.

Sorry my mistake you do get 24!

Dr_Lovegod1 m ago

Is it any good?


The 75cl retails at £9 usually and is regarded as a good supermarket Prosecco. Don’t see it winning any awards..............

The fabric softener is good 142 for £5 😁🤪🙌🏻

Slightly odd comparison - who buys miniatures other than people stocking hotel bars!? I agree about the novelty factor and all of these calenders (like hampers) are overpriced but you could but two decent bottles of gin for that price. Better than the original £70 mind so it still counts as a deal!

Not quite the variety of the Costco calendar posted last week but still good value - where else can you get a taster of so many different gins to decide which ones you really like (other than paying a fortune in a pub, plus you get the packaging. Heat from me

That beer advent calendar is very good value, works out at £1.25 per bottle - you can't get the beers cheaper than that if you buy seperately. I paid £55 for mine

No they are under £2

drinksupermarket.com/min…ice

Beefeater £1.50

At £2.50/miniature this is kinda meh.

I only count 19 gins in the picture, what are the other 5 gins? They better not be lame duplicates; it already has crap basic gin like Gordons, Bombay and Ophir.

False!!! It isn't very good value. The beers featured in this advent calendar are 330ml. £1.25 for 330ml?

Well for starters 500ml of hobgoblin is always £1.25 at most supermarkets. Spitfire and bombardier are often £1 for 500ml. Most others featured are on 4 for £6 deals that are 500ml bottles.

So yes, you can get the beers cheaper if bought separately. If they were 500ml bottles I would agree with you.

Bagged a beer calendar. Yes we could all go out to Aldi. Ldl, Tesco wherever and buy bigger bottles for less or the same however it's the novelty factor of not knowing what I am having etc and I missed out a few years ago when they were going for about £20 and then prices just went stupid.

After this one I will probably never have another but I've tried one out

Well said. All these people comparing it to a single bottle of gin are hilarious. I guess they'd say a box of Thorntons Continental is bad value because its dearer than a big bar of Dairy Milk. Nuts.

Point is though, in terms of beer advent calendars, it's very poor, not only due to sizes but content that are common beers available all year round at low prices.

Shopping around would get you a better deal.

"Kalea" are a German brand who ship over beer advent calendars filled with quality German beer that aren't available anywhere else in the UK.

groupon.co.uk/dea…ass

It's only £12.99 more but unlikely the majority of us would have ever heard of the beers, let alone tried them. Bottles are 330ml with some good ABV's (up to 7.9%). Miles better value and I think Groupon offer 10% off first order.

Kalea advent calendar's are on Amazon too (but as is often the case with Amazon, the price is hiked up)

Got the beer one this morning good price!

Fair play you are quite right and if I had known about the one you have highlighted first I think I may have gone for that one. Actually pondering ordering one anyway...
I will try and remember to check the likes of Groupon next year but I've bitten the bullet with this one now and will just enjoy the mystery each day

I would have expected them to all be 500ml. I agree that this is not a bargain if some of the bottles are sneakily 330ml which is not even enough to wet my mouth with

Morrisons 1 is still just as quaffable anyway. So I'm sure they will be enjoyed.

Talking of Morrison's, I noticed they have their Christmas ales in now. £1.50 for a 500ml bottle of 6% festive pudding ale or 5.2% "bah humbug". Worth giving both a go if you haven't already.

I had a look instore and most of the bottles are 275ml, with a few 330ml ones. Not the bargain it first appears.

I think you might have missed the point being made and your analogy appears to be back to front... it's not that the idea of an advent calendar is lost on me, it's the quality of the gin that leads to the lack of value. This is just some tiny bottles of pretty bog standard gin. If you don't want to explore new flavours than you've already had then you might as well just buy the full sized bottles and be done with it. What I said earlier was that you could get two, not one, bottles of gin for the same price making meaning you're spending twice the amount of money in exchange for having to act surprised when you pull out a tiny bottle of Gordons!

It's the same with the beer one, if you want your standard hobgoblin etc. then just go and buy the full sized bottles. If you want to explore something new go for the German one mentioned above or, and I'd recommend this, the Beer Hawk one. They're a little bit more but at least that way you stand a chance of trying something new.
Edited by: "DrBunker" 15th Nov

The German 1 is guaranteed something new to try. The beer hawk 1 is more likely than not, but not guaranteed to be something new to try.

Then again.... If really wanting to take a chance, beer hawk have the mystery boxes. 1 for £25 or 2 for £45. 15 bottles in each which are pure mystery (some out of date but still drinkable). Mixture of 500ml and 330ml.

I have ordered it.... 2 mystery boxes, 2 other bottles of beer (to top it up to just over £50 for free delivery), then 10% mailing list discount made it £45 for 32 beers.

Everything you have said indicates the exact opposite. Each to his own though; Merry Xmas (i hope someone gets you a nice boozy advent calendar filled with gins that meet your high standards)

Turned my nose up at the £50 '12 days of Christmas' gin set from Very. Other than being 8 months pregnant, she'll love this, as will I! Went for his and hers!


32443859-0I6oW.jpg

Morrison’s Gosport still got the Gin calendar. You have to ask though as it’s out back, too high a price for most locals and too nickable apparently for some.

I've already bought myself the Beer Hawk one at £55 after it was so good last year. Not only do I get the fun of advent calendars, I get the concept of value.
