Father’s Day Gift Ideas

The old adage is that a father is someone who carries photos in his wallet where his money used to be. Wise words. With that in mind, we’ve come up with a selection of gifts that will show Dad how much you care this Father’s Day.  After all, how many pairs of socks does one man really need? Surely a bottle of bourbon or a sweet treat is the best way to return the love?

Smith and Sinclair Whiskey Club

Smith and Sinclair

YSL Fathers Day

YSL Aftershave

Peerless Fathers Day Drink

Peerless Bourbon

This delicious rye whisky from Peerless Kentucky became available in the UK for the very first time last year. As well as a great tasting rye whisky, the bottle is super cool and sure to look fantastic on display in Dad’s home bar. Steady as you pour though as it’s a whopping 55.25% ABV. RRP: Small Batch Rye = £80.00. Available from: Native Spirits.

Gvine Gin Fathers Day

G’Vine Floraison Gin de France

Okay so it’s usually known as ‘Mother’s Ruin’ but gin has had such a resurgence of late that it makes a great gift for anyone over 18. G’Vine is unique as it’s made from grape spirit in the Cognac region of France. The subtle aromatic vine flower, together with the grape spirit, softens the traditional juniper taste inherent in most gins. RRP: Small Batch Rye = £32 , 70cl. Available from: Amazon.

Walker and Moreland CBD
