Put some spirit into gift guying for Father’s Day on Sunday, June 17, with a special whisky, according to William Grant who claim to have a unique whisky for every taste.
A gift for a cocktail lover: Monkey Shoulder appeals to those starting their whisky journey. With a cheeky disregard for tradition and commitment to unconventional serves, Monkey Shoulder offers great Scotch to a new generation of whisky drinkers. RRP of £26.83 at any major retailer, including Master of Malt
A gift for a beer lover: Treat your dad to the world’s first single malt Scotch whisky finished in bold and zesty IPA craft beer casks. Presented in a unique box, the Glenfiddich IPA Experiment really is a special tipple this Father’s Day. RRP of £45.50 at any major retailer, including Amazon.
A gift for a sophisticated dad: For those planning to bring a little finesse to Father’s Day celebrations, The Balvenie Doublewood 12 is sure to impress. Celebrate the true craftsmanship behind this whisky and savour the notes of nutty sweetness, cinnamon spices and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry. RRP of £37.96 at any major retailer, including Master of Malt
A gift for a traditionalist: If your dad appreciates time with the family on Father’s Day then Grants Family Reserve is the perfect way to enjoy this special day. This classic never fails and is flawless straight as it comes. RRP of £17.45 at any major retailer, including Master of Malt.
A gift for an entrepreneur: Hudson is the first American whiskey distillery in New York since prohibition, an original pioneer of craft spirits. From grain to glass, great care and attention goes into making Hudson, with no two bottles of Hudson whiskey ever exactly the same, as all the bottles are handmade and numbered. Mark this Father’s Day with a fine American dram. RRP of £44.15 at any major retailer, including Master of Malt.
A gift for a perfectionist: Ailsa Bay is not your traditional whisky. The only Scotch whisky to undergo micro-maturation, it is a precision-distilled single malt that is perfectly balanced between smoke and sweetness. While the granite from this remote island is more traditionally used for making curling stones, a piece of it is contained in the stopper of every bottle of Ailsa Bay. RRP of £55.43 at any major retailer, including Master of Malt.
A gift for a charmer: Treat your father to some Irish charm with Tullamore D.E.W. whiskey. Known for its smooth flavour, Tullamore is triple distilled and a blend of all three types of Irish whiskey – grain, malt and pot still. The sweet softness of grain whiskey, soft spice from the pot still and fruitiness of the malt create a uniqueness of flavour. RRP of £24.13 at any major retailer, including Master of Malt.
