Gifts for men: The responsible drinker

Shopping

For the drinker, here's six inspired gifts that are more commensurate with years of emotional and financial support...

Riedel Optical O Whisky Glass (£25 per twinpack)

Riedel’s deluxe barware makes every sip taste more expensive. The elegant, nostalgic, Art Nouveau-inspired whisky tumbler is an understated masterpiece was designed by Maximilian J. Riedel and is perfect for an stiff Old Fashioned or a smoky dram. And yeah, it’s dishwasher safe. Obvs. 

 

Cocchi Vermouth di Torino (£23)

Shopping for a discerning drinker? First produced in 1891, this rich, honeyed bittersweet artisanal vermouth is made from a secret recipe of botanicals that magically makes any cocktail taste mind-blowing. Think of it as the Italian equivalent of Popeye’s Spinach: one sip and your dad will start wearing Armani loafers and rocking up to espresso stands in a Ferrari 308 GTB.

 

Elements Eight Republica Artisan Rum (£31)

This is a premium, aged blend of two rums, sourced from distilleries in Cuba and Panama. It’s non-chill filtered and aged for a minimum of five years in Bourbon casks, so it has a naturally sweet character. It’s bloody delicious with some ginger beer and bruised mint leaves.

BeerWulf Fathers Day Pack 12 (£26)

BeerWulf can deliver over 350 craft beers – from around the world – directly to your door. This 12-pack Father’s Day box includes a special edition of Brewery De Leckere’s blonde Gulden Craen and Bellfield Lawless Village, UK winner of the World Beer Awards.

 

Smith & Sinclair edible gin cocktails (£16)

Dad’s are experience drinkers who don’t get ‘smashed’ – they tend to go the gently pickled route. Which is why these stealthy, gin-soaked artisan jellies make the perfect gift. You get 8 edible drinks in this box: four G&T’s and four Elderflower Gin cocktails. You can buy a pack from Jeyanarrative.com, a rather brilliant new online lifestyle shop.

 

The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey (£40)

Dead Rabbit, named after a notorious Irish street gang, isn’t just the best bar in New York – it’s the best bar in the world. It’s just launched its own whiskey, too. This stuff is already a cult hit with bartenders, so your dad should have no complaints. You can buy it from 31Dover.com, but it’s likely to sell out fast.

Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla Gin (£28)

You can’t go wrong with gin. There’s nothing wrong with buying a bottle of Gordon’s, but it doesn’t exactly scream, ‘This is your special day, dad, thanks for creating me.’ So we recommend buying Tanqueray’s zesty masterpiece, an orange-infused gin (and it’s all about the flavoured gins right now). Serve with a wedge of orange and a hug.
