Father’s Day simply isn’t a day that celebrates fatherhood and honours fathers all over the world, but a day to make your father feel just as special as you believe him to be. Now for a day of this magnitude, not just any gift would suffice.
For a day as special as Father’s Day, it is always a difficult task to pick out the perfect gift for the very first superhero of all our lives, but for the children of whisky loving fathers, the answer is far too simple.
A fortuitous pleasure of life, and dare we say, one of the greatest gifts ever is to have a father that loves whisky just as much as we do, and for the ultimate Father’s Day gift, it is a decision as simple as it is tough.
Sure we know a bottle of whisky is naturally the ideal choice, but which one? Shall it be the one for special occasions, or a worthy inclusion into his priceless collection? A bottle of whisky he loves to show off to his friends, or a bottle that reminds you of the first drink you ever shared with your father? Fear not because we are here to help you make the right choice this Father’s Day, so go ahead and take a pick from these gorgeous whiskies from around the world.
