Decorating the Christmas tree just got a little better for this year because Costco is back with another impressive buy that booze lovers will be running to grab. Though the mini hot chocolate to go ornaments became fan favorites when spotted, the beloved wholesale chain has a new star in town: ornaments that are filled with whisky. Yes, you read that right—whisky.
Popular Costco Instagrammer @costco_empties spotted the new holiday whisky ornament collection and posted a photo of it to their feed on Friday, November 13 sending everyone (or maybe just me) into a complete frenzy. Totally on target for the
mess year that 2020 has been, the whisky ornaments are an awesome boozy gift for your drinking buddy. And, it comes with three different brands of whisky. You know, since true whisky lovers know that any ol’ whisky just won’t do.
“NEW Holiday Whisky ornament collection featuring @glenliver_scotch_whiskey @jameson_us and @chivasregak ! Each collection contains 12/ 50mL bottles of whisky in ornaments. If ever there was a year to hang whisky on your tree, I’m pretty sure 2020 is it!” the caption touted. But what about the price? I mean good whisky isn’t really the cheapest right? Well, this roundup of 12 mini bottles of Glenlivet, Jameson, and Chivas Regal all tucked nicely in their clear ornament casings only has a $55.99 price tag. And, to make things even better, the back of the ornament packaging also comes with a few cocktail recipes, too! So basically, it’s like you’re getting a 2-for-1 deal and who wouldn’t want that?
Whether you’re a whisky lover or not though, you’d have to agree that if for nothing else, these ornaments will make for a cool addition to your already incredible tree decorations.
