Father's Day Gift Ideas that He Will Love!

1. Share a whisky cocktail with Dad

If you know the man you call 'Dad' loves whisky, treating him to a nice bottle is a great way to thank him for being the best! Not 100% sure of his taste? A versatile whisky gift like Johnnie Walker Black Label will go a treat. He can enjoy it neat or with ice, or to whip up a Whisky Sour. Talisker 10-Year-Old Whisky is another good shout. He can mix up enticing whisky cocktails like Angus Collins or give his favourite sip, the Old Fashioned, a spicy twist. 

You can go one step further by cooking him a meal you can enjoy together paired with his favourite whisky or you go all out and host a whisky-tasting dinner. Not sure what to cook? When choosing which whisky to pair with a dish, consider how the flavours of the whisky can enhance the flavours of the food and vice versa, and don't be afraid to experiment. The flavours should complement each other, but they can be a different match. 

For example, you can pair spicy foods with a sweeter whisky. Full-bodied whiskies like Johnnie Walker Black Label go well with strong, full-flavoured dishes like a cheese platter. Light scotch whiskies like Talisker 10 Year Old and oysters make the perfect companions, as the hints of the smokiness and string barley malt favours bring out the briny sweetness of the oysters. 

2. Celebrate Father’s Day with a bottle of rum

To the world, he's your dad. To you, he's the world. Nothing beats spending quality time with him, and Father's Day is an excellent opportunity to bond with your dad or father figure. You know he loves rum, so why not name a unique rum cocktail after him? (Favourite child points guaranteed!). Or, if your budget is on the bigger side, you could create your own gift set with a mix of different kinds of rums and use them to host a rum cocktail-tasting experience at home. You'll want a selection of rums with different colours, scents and bodies like Zacapa, Captain Morgan Spiced, Captain Morgan White Rum, or Pampero Aniversario. 

You can use them to make lots of different rum cocktails for him, like a Mojito – you'll need sugar, lime and mint for that. And if he's a big coffee lover, whip him up a Rum Espresso Martini - he'll love it! If you're looking for something truly unique, with a personal touch that he can treasure, even when he's finished the bottle, a personalised or engraved bottle of rum will do just that.

3. Say thank you with a gin gift set

Whether it's to say thanks for always lending an ear, or for always making you laugh at the drop of a hat, Father's Day is a great opportunity to show him how much you appreciate him. Celebrate his greatness by mixing a Tanqueray & Tonic. Just don't forget to add ice! 

You could go one step further to help make him feel extra special by gifting him with Gin Martini Cocktail Gift Pack. Especially if it’s a premium gin gift like a Tanqueray No. Ten! We like to think of it as an experience at home for the senses. Look for a gift set that comes with premium coupe glassware, bar tools like a jigger, mixing jug, and strainer! If you add a recipe card to go with it, then it’s perfect!

4. Catch up over an alcohol-free drink

Sometimes your father figure isn't blood, but an amazing man who proves that fathers don't have to share your DNA. If your father figure is not a drinker, celebrate him on his special day with alcohol-free drinks that don't compromise on taste. Treat him to a bottle of Tanqueray 0.0% & Tonic to whip up tasty drinks like a Non-Alcoholic Mojito or if you have more than one father figure in your life that you want to treat, gift him with a bundle of non-alcoholic spirits to mix up delectable alcohol-free drinks at home. An Elderflower Spritz is a great toast-worthy drink, too, so you could also try making him one of those. Cheers!

5. Bourbon gift ideas for dad

He’s the closest thing you've had to a dad. He's always treated you like his bonus child, and you'll forever be grateful. Show your adoptive dad your love on Father's Day with a nice bottle of his favourite spirit. You know he loves the smooth and bold taste of bourbon, so a bottle of Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey is the one. And you know the way to his heart is through his stomach, so why not cook him a meat-licious lunch? Fire up the BBQ, glaze the meat with Bulleit Bourbon barbecue sauce and whip up a delicious meal to have with him.

Use the bottle of bourbon to make him an Old Fashioned or Kentucky Mule. And although you can drink bourbon in any glass you want to, if he likes to drink his in a nice rocks glass, a set of whisky glasses will make a great gift too.

So, there you have it. A round-up of the top Father's Day gifts for every type of dad. And while we know they may have some things in common, every dad is unique, so it's all about showing him how much you love and appreciate him with a gift that matches his vibe.
