Who doesn’t love a liquor holiday calendar? As that little window reveals a bottle to enjoy that night or saved for a spirited weekend toast, the daily present brings cheers all around. Although the smaller bottles might be the norm, the Blue Run Holiday Gift Calendar pours a little extra with its gift set. Ready to make that purchase?
Many people might be familiar with its Blue Run Spirits and its 12 Day of Bourbon. On the final day of the schedule, the spirits brand will release its first-ever Holiday Gifting Calendar. Included in the set are select offerings from the 2023 12 Days of Bourbon expression, a tasting glass, flask, ornament and a steak service for two.
While all these items are great, it is the full bottle of Blue Run High Rye bourbon that sets this gift apart from other offerings. In some ways, this gift is not only something to give but also to receive. No one is saying that you can’t break up the 12 bourbons and full size bottle. That concept will not earn a spot on Santa’s naughty list.
Even though many people would “run” to get this bourbon holiday gift, the possibilities of snagging one are quite limited. There are only 40 available, only 10 are released every day during the sale. Still, the lucky purchasers will feel as gleeful as Elf when he thought Santa was arriving at Gimbels.
Although it is unclear which of the 12 Days of Bourbon offerings will be featured in this calendar, this year’s collection definitely packs a punch. All of the offerings are over 110 proof. These liquors are meant for contemplative sipping.
The creativity in each of the offerings is clear. While the names might be a little play on words, the flavors enchant like Christmas lights sparkling in the distance. From the surprising brightness of the citrus notes in the Rockin Around to the warm, cozy spicy flavors in the All Golden Rings, this collection can make anyone feel merry and bright all month long.
The 12 Days of Bourbon goes on sale starting December 1 at 3 p.m. Check with the website for more information.
The Blue Run Holiday Gift Calendar retails for $99 and sales begin on December 12.
