The Best Booze Gifts for Father’s Day
Monkey 47 Distiller’s Cut 12th Edition Schwarzwald Dry Gin
Every year, we wait with baited breath for Monkey 47 Distiller’s Cut, when the makers of the German spirit search for the perfect 48th ingredient to add to their already-perfect gin. This year’s addition was Woodruff, sourced from the distillery’s home in the Black Forest, which gives the gin right top notes of cinnamon and vanilla. For the Martini or G&T loving dad, this bottle is unparalleled.
Tullibardine Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
In partnership with Tullibardine
Show Dad he’s a treasure with Pure Highland gold, aka Tullibardine whisky, so nicknamed for the ancient Ochil Hills the family-owned Scottish distillery sources its water from — the same hills that were once famously mined for the shiny stuff. Today, Tullibardine stands for traditionally distilled, passionately crafted single malt. The U.S.-exclusive Artisan expression is fully aged in ex-bourbon casks for a smooth, subtly sweet whisky that any dad worth his weight in gold would surely appreciate.
Riedel Nick and Nora Glasses
Speaking of Martinis, the classic cocktail’s most iconic enthusiasts — Nick and Nora from the 1934 film The Thin Man — loved the drink so much, they named a glass after the characters. Riedel’s Nick & Nora glass is as elegant as it gets, and it’s perfect for sipping Martinis, Manhattans and anything else you might typically serve in a coupe (so long as the drink isn’t too big).
Cuisinart Private Reserve 16-Bottle Wine Cellar
Not everyone is lucky enough to have a wine fridge built into their kitchen island. But those with smaller spaces and smaller bottle collections should also be able to enjoy a perfectly chilled glass whenever the mood strikes. Cuisinart’s 16-bottle wine cellar is built for countertops and features a dual-zone thermoelectric cooling system so dad can keep his reds, rosés and whites at the perfect temps.
Ilegal Mezcal Añejo
Maybe your dad is already a fan of agave spirits. Or perhaps he’s a whiskey or cognac drinker who wants to expand his horizons. No matter his palate, one thing’s for certain — he’ll probably love Ilegal’s Añejo Mezcal, which has been aged for 13 months in a combination of new and used American oak. The wood gives the mezcal a rich, chocolatey flavor, perfect for sipping neat or mixing into an Old Fashioned.
If your dad is like a lot of people these days, he might be experimenting with low- and no-abv drinks occasionally. As the first distilled non-alcoholic spirit, Seedlip has some great cocktails in their archives, which he can try out at home with this trio of all three expressions. Gift this set then have dad mix you a Seedlip Martini or Seedlip Spice Spritz next time you’re together.
Maison Balzac Amber Coucou Jug
It really doesn’t get sleeker than this. Maison Balzac’s Coucou Jug is hand-crafted from amber borosilicate glass and has a faceted design that adds an elegant, modern touch to any tabletop. If dad loves to mix up cocktails when he entertains, this acts as the perfect vessel so guests can help themselves. By him a set of the Coucou Tall Glasses for bonus points.
DAOU Soul of a Lion
Hailing from the Adelaida District of Paso Robles (the grapes are planted at an elevation of 2,200 feet on a 212-acre mountaintop), this marks the 10th anniversary of the Soul of a Lion annual release. Named in honor of the father of vineyard co-proprietors (and brothers) Georges and Daniel Daou, this Cabernet Sauvignon features notes of black cherry, raspberry, dark chocolate, cassis and a hint of minerality and oak. Wine Enthusiast gave it a nearly perfect (97) score — it’s a standout and full of complexity and depth.
Aged and Ore Travel Decanter
Dad (or you) can bring 500ml of a favorite booze on the road in this cool and classy hand-blown decanter, which is nestled in a stainless steel case that’s double-wall vacuum insulated to keep things at the proper temp, hot or cold. And that case doubles as two tumblers.
Goode Co. Chocolate Bourbon Brazos Bottom Pecan Pie
A chocolate pecan pie infused with spirits from Milam & Green Distillery, this spirited dessert arrives (if you pay a bit extra) in an iconic wooden box that “captures the essence of Texas.”
Stanley Milestones Hip Flask
Honoring its 110-year anniversary, Stanley released three limited-edition flasks inspired by designs from the 1920s, 1940s and 1960s — so tailor it to dad’s age. These pocket-sized flasks feature a wide smouth and leakproof cap.
Flaviar Grilled & Distilled Box
Co-created with six-time World Barbecue Champion BBQ pitmaster Tuffy Ston, this whiskey-and-BBQ bundle features 10 whiskey samples, a cookbook, a spice rub, BBQ sauce, a rocks glass and a free year’s membership to Flaviar (which gets you free shipping on more whiskey).
Beachbum Berry’s Sippin’ SafarI: 10th Anniversary Edition
Learn the history of Tiki cocktails and get some of the finest recipes from an expanded version of this classic drinks tome, written and curated by vintage drinks expert Jeff “Beachbum” Berry (who The New York Times once called the “Indiana Jones of Tiki drinks”).
Viski 55mm Professional Ice Ball Maker
Sure, there are other ways to create cool ice sphere, but how many of them would you proudly display in your kitchen? Viski’s ice ball maker uses gravity and the conductivity of aluminum to turn a solid ice chunk into a perfect sphere. (If you’d prefer dad make clear ice, we’ve also got a book for you).
Negroni Cocktail Poster
Sandgrain’s artwork is minimalist beauty, allowing the typeface, simple shapes and color to tell a story. Like the story of a classic cocktail, printed with a giclée fine art process on thick artisan paper with a matte finish. Frame not included — but we have some suggestions on how to do that simply.
Cut Above Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit
There’s a joy to the art of making drinks, even if you’re not currently imbibing. So you can still find happiness (and flavor) with this non-alc kit from Cut Above, which features the brand’s “whiskey” plus an ice mold, Cheeky simple syrup, garnishes and non-alcoholic orange bitters. Plus … if you have leftovers, there’s no saying you can’t use your own stash to make a drink?
Roscioli Italian Wine Club
Roscioli is one of Rome’s most iconic locales (a location is also set to land in NYC soon, praise be). But if you can’t be enjoying a glass of wine with dad in the Eternal City, Roscioli’s Italian Wine Club is the next best thing. You can gift two shipments of 12 bottles or send a one-time purchase of a half case. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this for the wine-loving dad.
The Morning Dram Coffee: The Barrel Aged Box Set
Coffee beans for spirits fans from the owner of NYC’s The Flatiron Room, this set features four bags of specialty beans aged in freshly-emptied spirits barrels, including Scotch, rye, bourbon and American Single Malt. There’s no booze here, but nobody said you couldn’t add a little to your daily java habit.
Sailor Jerry Ironside BBQ Sauce
Sailor Jerry teamed up with the Texas-based, veteran-owned business Grill Your Ass Off to create this barbecue sauce, crafted with 92-proof Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum. Figure it to be smooth, spicy, sweet and smoky treat. Bonus: Half the profits benefit The Independence Fund, a 501c3 non-profit committed to restoring the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual independence of our nation’s veterans.
Modern Saddle Bottle Opener
The leather brand Moore & Giles, now celebrating its 90th year, has created the quintessential bottle opener. Crafted from hand-forged iron and a hand-stitched Italian veg-tanned leather, this one’ll look better over time.
