About us

Welcome to Secret Spirits

We love advent calendars because they give us something to look forward to. A little treat every day. At Secret Spirits, we make mind-blowing scotch whisky advent calendars. We produce them for Christmas. Which makes sense. But these are extraordinary times. We’re opening the archive and making our Christmas whisky advent calendars available now. With a 20% discount. These days, we think everyone needs a little something to look forward to. 

Sure, it isn’t Christmas. We know that. But wouldn’t you like a handpicked single cask whisky every day? 

We have limited quantities of calendars from the last four years. Each with 25 unique whiskies. These cask strength whiskies, and a few blends too sensational to pass-up, are exclusive to us. We travel to Scotland every year to select each barrel of scotch. That means the majority have never been tasted before and will never be tasted again. Unless you buy two. 

Our bottles are 50ml; which is a big pour. If you’re feeling generous, 50ml is enough to share. This is not the time to be a grinch.  

Order a calendar and have 25 incredible scotch whiskies to enjoy. Have a virtual tasting with your friends. Or check out our Facebook page and share your thoughts with our community. We’ll post our own videos on there too. We also need something to look forward to every day. We’re all in this together. Let’s keep our spirits up!  

Our story

Jonathan and Cindy of Secret Spirits

My name is Jonathan. I’m an Australian who married a Canadian girl named Cindy. Together, we’ve created the most exciting scotch whisky products found anywhere.

I’ve worked in the alcohol industry since 1995 as a consultant-turned-sales representative for an import company I later came to own. I expanded its largely wine-based portfolio into the single malt whisky category.

I’ve always championed independent bottling.

Over the years, I developed a reputation for my knowledge and skill as a whisky presenter, Keeper of the Quaich and marketer in Canada and the U.S.

Cindy is the creative behind all of our packaging, websites and Social Media. She is an artsy soul who loves playing with various graphic programs and has had her graphic art published in various graphic design magazines.
