Is it just us, or does it feel like this year is just flying by? The pandemic crisis seems to make time move in mysterious ways, and somehow Father’s Day is just around the corner! We wanted to get creative with fun gift ideas for Dad this year, and thought — why not share a round-up of some of our favorite craft Whiskey gifts for dad? We’ve gathered a range of options, from the best whiskey club sampler sets to more robust full-bottle subscriptions. Check them out below, and give Dad something he can certainly make use of during these quarantine days at home!
We’ve always been big fans of what the folks at Flaviar are doing. Not only do they offer an awesome quarterly sampler subscription, but you can also buy full bottles through them, even if you aren’t a club member. And they have a great selection of craft spirits, whiskey and beyond. Their unique bottles make great whiskey gifts for dad on their own.
But even better than one bottle, Flaviar’s spirits sampler boxes are our favorite whiskey gifts for dad, or for anyone else special in your life. Three tasting samples of different whiskies (or other spirits – why stick to just whiskey?!) that can test dad’s palate and introduce him to new favorites. Gift recipients are treated to personalized samples, complimentary bottles, and their members get access to rare and original spirits you can’t find elsewhere. Pricing starts at $190 for a six-month membership. Give the gift of Flaviar!
ShotsBox offers a monthly subscription, with 10 sample-size bottles that you can customize to fit your tastes. All whiskey, mix of spirits for experimentation, or other combinations are at your fingertips. They also include cocktail recipes to try with your new spirits. Great for the whiskey or cocktail enthusiast dads out there.
If you’re looking for something a bit more substantial, they also offer full-bottle subscription kits, delivered every two months, and you can pick between clear spirits, dark spirits, or a mix. Pricing starts at $49.99/month. Shop ShotsBox now!
Caskers offers a subscription with 2 full-size bottles in each shipment (sent every 3 months), along with digital tasting notes. They never send repeat bottles, so you’ll always get to try something new. Whiskey gifts for dad that keep on giving!
