31st October is once again upon us and as spooky gatherings are set for a return, here are just some more alcoholic drink products inspired by Halloween. This continues to be a reason for brands to release limited editions or products with references to skulls, devils, ghouls, ghosts and pumpkins and it extends even to the fantastic Halloween Barrels from Whisky Barrels Direct, which can help to set the atmosphere for your festivities.
