The Dry Drinker

The Dry Drinker experienced unprecedented demand in the run up to Christmas last year and was increasingly asked by customers to produce an advent calendar

While the Dry Drinker site has experienced high cyclical demand in the past, owner Stuart Elkington feels like he is at the coal face of what appears to be the most significant mega- trend to hit the drinks world since, well, craft gin?

Low and no (as it’s affectionately being called) alcohol alternatives now make up 1.3% of the total beverage alcohol market in the UK. And while, in some segments of the market, this is driven by short periods of abstinence (Dry January/Stoptober), millennials are consistently seeking greater choice in the low alcohol space and, increasingly, the health conscious older generations are also getting in on the act.

Dry Drinker’s advent calendar will consist of 12 bottles and 12 cans of surprise beers all especially chosen for their quality and great flavour. A Dry Drinker glass will be hidden in there too for the customer to enjoy their 24 beers.

What we think

It is amazing to think how far low alcohol beer has come. Gone are the days when to sip on a low alcohol beer brought disgust to the person drinking it. Now it is difficult to tell much of a difference, other than the inebriation that comes with a few too many. With events like dry January and Stoptober low alcohol drinks are more widely found, and if you want to continue it year around there is finally some advent calendars for you in 2020. The Dry Drinker is a calendar for conscientious employers, who know that at a time of year when over drinking is accepted realise that a dry employee is a productive employee.

Sweet things

Chococo

chococo advent calendars adults 2020Chococo led the way back in 2005 in offering an advent selection box filled with proper chocolates for grown-ups, and its Classic Advent Selection box has become an annual best seller and part of the ritual of the annual Christmas build-up for many Chococo customers.

They now offer two variants each containing 25 chocolates in a stylish box design, with a frosted, numbered sleeve and menu, so that the chocolates can be tasted in date order, and all plastic-free packaging.

Chococo is the pioneer of advent calendars for adults, and not much has changed in 2020. Offering a decedent selection of 25 award winning chocolates, Chococo share their best selection in this box.

What we think

Sink down into the pillowy marshmallow found in the Naked Marshmallow Gourmet advent calendar. Full of a variety of different flavours found in these advent calendars, even though it is 2020 and as adults we have seen many things throughout our lives you open a door that says that this marshmallow will taste like ‘smores and it is hard to believe. It has not been toasted over a fire, or sandwiched between two biscuits, but you bite into the soft goodness and it all makes sense. The slight smokiness, the almost biscuity coating just evokes ‘smores. That is just day one of 25 delicious days of marshmallow.

Mummy Meagz

With 24 windows to open, the countdown to Christmas has never been more exciting for vegans and non-vegans alike, as they can now enjoy the highest quality smoove moove chocolate as they look forward to the big day.

The new Smoove Moove blend combines smooth dairy-free mylk chocolate with deliciously creamy dark chocolate for an irresistible combination that melts in the mouth.

The bespoke packaging, designed by Dan Cook of Plant Based Cards, is adorned with a jolly snowman standing alongside a snow-topped stripy hut, in keeping with Mummy Meagz’ unique and fun striped packaging. On top of the hut sits a little robin – which appeared as Willow and Meagan Boyle, founders of the brand, sat in their garden during lockdown designing the range. This little fellow is sure to catch eyes in shops and homes around the country.

What we think

Not being one to gravitate towards the vegan lifestyle this was a tough one. But as soon as you open day one and taste the ‘chocolate’ you know that you are in for 23 more delicious days ahead. Mummy Meagz has done an amazing job in 2020 of putting together advent calendars that are good Christmassy fun for adults and children alike.

Love Cocoa

love cocoa advent calendars adults 2020Love Cocoa, the ethical, luxury British chocolate brand created by James Cadbury, is launching its first-ever advent calendar: an indulgent, grown-up chocolate affair for the committed chocoholics amongst us. And if that wasn’t reason enough to ruffle your truffles, the eco-savvy brand has committed to planting three trees for every calendar sold as part of its ‘Plant A Tree’ project.

Remaining true to the brand’s British roots, the beautifully illustrated A3 calendar showcases quintessentially British icons through the ages, ice skating on the Thames. Think William Shakespeare, the Queen, James Bond, The Spice Girls and Mo Farah, to name just a few, with Father Christmas parachuting in to join the festivities. And the calendar not only looks good, it’s completely plastic free and 100% recyclable.

What we think

The name of Cadbury evokes a deep seated love in British people. In recent years the brand has lost something, the well publicised purchase of the company has led to a loss of reputation and quality. James Cadbury is attempting to boost his family name with his company Love Cocoa, and he absolutely achieves that with this advent calendar. As the first of, I am sure, many advent calendars Love Cocoa have decided to offset the environmental aspects of creating these calendars in 2020 by planting three trees per calendar sold, something we should be thinking as responsible adults. This is before even getting to the amazing chocolate that appears in the calendar.

Advent of Change

advent of changeThe first-of-its-kind advent calendar which donates to a different charity every day is returning for 2020, launching a collection of exciting new calendars and a countdown candle which provides a charitable donation for each day of the festive countdown.

The feel-good festive range has been revealed with John Lewis by the celebrity-endorsed social enterprise, Advent of Change, which pioneered the UK’s first charity advent calendar where, instead of receiving something each day, you give something: 24 donations, to 24 incredible charities.

Behind the door of each calendar is a donation to a charity doing incredible work both in the UK and overseas. Each day, you discover exactly what you’ve given, from helping to provide safe housing for a homeless person, to providing a dream day out for a sick child, or helping to support the UK’s frontline workers.

The latest addition to the non-profit collection is an innovative Advent Candle which donates over 75 per cent of proceeds to 24 charities throughout the festive countdown. The natural wax burns down to reveal the number each day, and comes with an accompanying booklet to discover exactly what your donation has meant for the charity.

What we think

What can be more like Christmas than donating some money to people who need it the most? The Advent of Change calendar looks fantastic and it gives you the extra peace to mind to know that the proceeds will be going to 24 different charities. Being an adult means being responsible, so in 2020 after such a horrible year for everyone it is easy to forget that there are people that are still in worse shape than you. Buy one for everyone in your team to make them feel appreciated and doing some good at the same time. The added bonus of plastic free, compostable, recyclable packaging just cements the sentiment of this beautiful calendar.
