Christmas is coming and it's time to start thinking about the advent calendar.

And what better way to start your countdown then a festive gin or 12?

Aldi has launched the 12 gins of Christmas which will be in stores from next week.

The popular supermarket decided that their Wine Advent calendar did so well last year that they would capitalise on the new gin craze.

This festive treat features twelve specially selected mini bottles of gin, hidden behind twelve doors counting down to Christmas.

With household name favourites including Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin, Tanqueray Dry Gin and Gordons Dry Gin, each window also includes a tonic to complement each gin style.

The calendar will be available online from November 9 and in stores from November 14, and will cost £39.99.
