1. Whiskies of the World Advent Calendar
Advent calendars are always fun as every day is literally a gift. Countdowns are usually waiting periods of nerve-racking expectation, but with Flaviar’s Calendar, the countdown is the point. The trick is to turn every day into a holiday: just an ordinary Thursday? Pop out a vial, and shazam!, it’s a No-thirst-day now.
The 4th issue of the famous Flaviar Advent Calendar will take you to another Whisky world each day of Advent, but tread lightly—you and your Bourbon lover just might get sucked into a wormhole of new favorite flavors.
Whiskey lovers adore it because it helps them become an expert fast plus it’s a great conversation starter. No wonder it sells out every year.
The Flaviar Whiskies of the Galaxy Advent Calendar holds 24 vials of premium Whisky, an award-winning Glencairn tasting glass, a high-quality Flaviar concrete coaster, and a collectible artistic booklet, your hitchhiker’s guide to each Whisky in the box. It’s essential equipment for every Whiskynaut.
Sure, chocolate is cool but you’re a grown-ass person and a daily vial of Whiskey is way more fun. Give it to your favorite person, even if that person is you.
Don’t believe us? Here are some reviews that will help you with your decision, and shine a light on how amazing it is to get Flaviar Advent Calendar.
“Bought one for myself and one for my brother, so we enjoyed a video chat tasting every night. Awesome experience!” - Jerry, Flaviar Member
“I treated myself to one and then also bought one for my son and a good friend. Most nights, we drank and talked over zoom or FaceTime.” - Gary, Flaviar Member
“This was an awesome experience. I’d continue in this club for this alone!” - Ben, Flaviar Member
2. Flaviar Home Bar
The focal point of every home used to be a fireplace, until central heating was invented. Now, we need a new hearth – preferably one with booze.
A home bar is a perfect place to gather and chill. Because we know the hardest part is the beginning, we came up with the Flaviar Bar, your new nook to unhook, fully equipped and stocked with five bottles of premium stuff. Love turns a house into a home, but Flaviar Bar turns it into a bar at home.
You can even personalize it with the recipient's name and make sure their Spirits game is always on point.
3. Flaviar Glencairn glass and badass premium coasters
When you get a new bottle of your favorite poison, you need a cool vessel to pour it in, and a classy envy-inducing coaster, right? Sure, you can put your snazzy PX-finish 18YO Scotch into an ordinary glass, and sure, you can protect your surfaces with a stolen beer promo coaster you stole during one of the benders. But should you?
If we know anything about you, it’s that you’re not a barbarian (apologies to members of actual barbarian tribes). And neither should be your friends.
Meet the uniqte, Flaviar-branded Glencairn tasting glass, used in all serious distillery labs. It’s a must-have for any malt head as it enhances the sipping experience by amplifying the color, capturing the treasured scents, and keeping the flavors pure. You can get a four-pack or a lovely duo for Spirit-lovin’ couples. Every glass is branded with a Flaviar dove.
Then, there are the coasters. Which material is the coolest? Ask Fonzie, Tyler Durden or Maverick: it’s the good old leather. And the first set of coasters is made from exactly that! Hold on, let’s make this gift even wilder. How about putting your Glencairn glass on a concrete coaster? You heard us.
A pack of high-quality renegade leather/concrete coasters, each stamped with Flaviar emblem, is an unexpected and out-of-the-box holiday gift every booze aficionado will appreciate. Hell, get yourself a pack, too!
And for those who want to broadcast their allegiance to excellence, there are Flaviar socks, shirts, sweaters, flasks, pins and beret caps that will elevate the Spirits game. You gotta look good when you feel good.
4. An exciting and themed Flaviar Tasting Box
We’re all about discovering new Spirits and broadening the horizons. One of the best ways to do that are our Tasting Boxes.
Want to dip your toes into the world of fantastic French Cognacs or a remarkable realm of Bourbons? How about a story about Mezcal or a rainbow of excitingly different Gins? Wanna try Papa Hemingway’s favorite drams or perhaps explore Rums that go that extra mile? We have them all.
In fact, there are almost 50 different Tasting Boxes available with new swanky ones pouring in all the time. Each Tasting Box brings you three vials of premium hooch to expand your Spirit-ual experiences or enlighten one of your loved ones.
Maybe you adore Scotch and want to persuade your dad to step out of his Bourbon Bubble, or there’s a friend that refuses to sip on G&T because she’s not “that into Gin”. Give them the right Tasting Box, a gateway dram to new spheres of drinking.
Your lucky gift recipient can even explore the contents of your Flaviar Tasting Box under the guidance of Spirits professionals - live and on-demand with a guided tasting called Unboxing Flavors.
5. The classic gift: a bottle of top-notch potion
A bottle of booze is a staple of gifts since 1388 (give or take a year) and it’s a safe bet for any friend that’s not a teetotaler. We compiled a helpful holiday selection of you-can’t-go-wrong bottles, just for you.
It’s time to help spread your love of Bourbon - truly American Spirit, and potentially create new fans among your family and friends. We'll give you a head start on growing your Spirits lover’s home bar with the perfect selection of 3 Bourbon bottles.
Frey Ranch Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Frey Ranch Straight Bourbon Whiskey won a 2020 Whiskies of the World Gold Medal. It is a true estate operation with everything done on-site from field to bottle. This is a four-grain Bourbon and they raise their own — non-GMO corn, winter rye, winter wheat, and two-row barley.
It’s continuously distilled in a 3-tower Vendome set-up and aged for four years in new oak. There is zero chill-filtration and cut to proof with the amazing snow-melt water to serve at 45% ABV for your pleasure.
Flaviar sat down with Colby and Ashley Frey to chat about the Spirit, the passion, the art of distillation, and women in the Whiskey industry. Uncover more secrets of Whiskey grains from Frey Ranch Distillery in this interview.
Wild Turkey Longbranch Small Batch Bourbon
One day, Matthew McConaughey said "Alright, alright, alright" and called the Bourbon legend Eddie Russel of Wild Turkey and told him he'd love to make a special kind of Whiskey. And they did. They compared notes, Matthew made a lot of calls in the middle of the night, and they created Longbranch.
Longbranch means an extending welcoming hand and it's not-so-secret secret is Mesquite. It's the actor's favorite grilling wood and it grows in Texas. They used it to refine the Bourbon and give it "that scent you remember."
Hum and pound your chest like a Wolf from Wall Street and share a sip of this rare and special potion with your Bourbon lover.
Wild Turkey Rare Breed Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Rare Breed Barrel Proof Bourbon was first released in 1991. Since then, there have only been 10 releases. So now you understand why it’s called “Rare Bird.” Let’s cut right to the specs. Don’t worry that there is no age statement.
All the experts agree that this powerhouse Bourbon is a combination of six, eight, and twelve-year-old top-end product. The mash bill is 75% corn, 13% rye, and 12% malted barley. And it’s bottled at cask strength! We’ve tested it straight up, but this monster was made to stand up to ice and a splash of water and teach it who’s boss.
Oh, and let’s not forget the delightful selection of Flaviar Originals. Here are the Spirits from different categories with a story to tell.
- Shakmat, the Flaviar-inspired Brandy from Armenia that will absolutely blow your mind.
- Frérot Extra, the Spirit worthy of the king that will amplify your loved one’s Cognac experience.
- Extravagant and delicious Sephina, craft Spirit blend of 56% V.S.O.P. Cognac and 44% Pineau Des Charentes fortified Wine, inspired by the life of the legendary entertainer Josephine Baker.
- One of-a-kind Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye, a simple concoction of Caribbean Rum, American Rye Whiskey, and bitters.
- Larga Vida XO Rum 2019 Edition, a true vacation for the tastebuds.
We could spend all week recommending you great Spirits, to be frank. It doesn’t matter if your “gift recipient” is a Spirit rookie or Level 9000; wild or rigorous; a Mezcal-head or a Gin fanatic. You’ll find a bottle so perfect they’ll think it was made exclusively for them.
6. To Infinity and Beyond
A new passion for your loved one you can enjoy together. Turn your lucky gift recipient into a genuine Master Blender with Flaviar’s Infinity Bottle - a gorgeous handmade decanter.
It can be your loved ones' carefully crafted blend, a liquid diary, or just a bin for the last drops from his home bar bottles.
Flaviar Infinity Bottle is a blank slate for the ultimate DIY project that is guaranteed to bring you two even closer. Unleash your creativity, and build your heirloom in a bottle. The title of a Master Blender comes with it. And don't limit yourself to only one infinity bottle. Create your own Rum blend or a peaty concoction.
