Frequently Asked Questions
How Are Alcohol Advent Calendars Delivered?
Most but not all, alcohol advent calendars delivery is free via courier within Australia.
An adult will need to be home to accept the delivery as couriers are not allowed to leave alcohol outside homes unattended due to the potential risk of children being able to access it. Proof of ID may be asked for upon delivery.
Why Do I Need To Pre-Order My Alcohol Advent Calendar?
Alcohol advent calendars are extremely popular and tend to sell out fast. To ensure you don’t miss out on being able to purchase your preferred advent calendar I highly recommend you pre-order it as soon as it becomes available.
An advantage of pre-ordering now is that several of the above best alcohol advent calendars are significantly discounted if you pre-order now.
Pre-ordering advent calendars usually opens up in September for a November delivery. If you wait until November to order your alcohol advent calendar it will most likely be sold out. This has happened to me in past years. Learn from my mistake and pre-order as soon as you can.
What Other Options Do I Have If My Preferred Alcohol Advent Calendar Is Sold Out?
Most companies that create alcohol advent calendars also have alcohol subscription packs and tasting packs. You could purchase these and make your own alcohol advent calendar or have your partner or friend make one for you so it will remain a surprise for you. You probably won’t be able to access quite as wide a variety of alcohol yourself as what you’d find in an alcohol advent calendar however.
Another option is to check out your local bottle shop. Most bottle shops sell a wide variety of mini 50ml bottles of spirits. My brother loves bourbon and his partner one year made him a bourbon advent calendar using mini bottles bought from their local bottle shop.
The easiest alcohol advent calendar to make yourself is a wine advent calendar Australia wide. This would be a great gift to make for your partner choosing all their favourite wines. To keep the element of surprise wrap each individual bottle and number it.
