Published: October 5, 2017

Britain's booziest advent calendar has been launched - containing 25 full size bottles of gin.

They are encased in a custom-made wooden cabinet and the whole thing costs £1,350.

Gin-lovers can open a slot every day in December and enjoy a bottle from some of Britain's top distillers.

Brands include Pinkster, Silent Pool, Tarquins, Salcombe, 6 O'Clock and Barbican Botanist.

The calendar is the brainchild of the Little Gin Box company whose owner Doreen Canale-Dow said: "We noticed there weren't many expensive gin gifts out there.

"We came up with the idea for the calendar with bigger bottles inside and a local craftsmen called Charlie Williams, of Finest Things Devon, said he could make the boxes for us.

"We knew what we wanted, so we gave him the design and in just over a month he had come up with what we're now selling."

Every calendar ordered will be custom-made by Charlie and delivered in two weeks.

Artist Mark Bell has designed four out of the eight designs available for the box, from a jazz singer to a feather dancer, and there are also four simpler designs for the less extravagant customer.

Doreen added: "The box is so big, we wanted to decorate it nicely in case people want to reuse it as a gin cabinet."

There is also a smaller £80 version from Little Gin Box, which contains 25 lots of 25ml measures of carefully selected Artisan Craft Gin.
