Ten Great Gift Ideas for Father's Day
The Loch Fyne The Living Cask Batch 14
For the whisky lover that's tried everything (cannae be as many as me though!), I have something a wee bit different. This dram is steeped in Scottish tradition: made according to the historic technique described in Professor George Saintsbury's 1920 book, Notes on a Cellar. The expression is made from cask that is constantly topped up with different whiskies and never emptied. This one began with our original living cask blend ,1745, and then topped up with a selection of carefully chosen Highland malts over the years.
Johnnie Walker Black Label Icon 2.0
If he's partial to a smokier dram, this special edition of the iconic Johnnie Walker Black Label will go down swimmingly. It is made using a braw combination of single malts from all over Scotland, and aged for a minimum of 12 years to develop their famous flavour. Today the blend is as rich and smooth as it was when John Walker's son and grandson were Master Blenders. I wonder what he received on Father's Day as a famous teetotaller!
Nikka from the Barrel
Something a little different for your Scotch-lover Dad. This Japanese blend combines more than 100 types of select malt and grain whisky, including from Nikka's Miyagikyo and Yoichi distilleries. A wide variety of casks are used in the maturation process, including bourbon barrels, sherry butts and refill hogsheads. Married to perfection, this one is a cracking wee taste of Japanese blending artistry.
Loch Lomond The Open Special Edition 2023 Gift Pack
One for the golfer Dads, this bonnie dram was made to celebrate the 151st Open, and specially matured in American oak casks with a special finish in Rioja Alta Reserva casks. This spectacular whisky also comes with two Loch Lomond branded glasses, in a box that is signed by Loch Lomond's golf ambassador, Colin Montgomerie. Two gifts in one!
Glen Scotia Double Cask Rum Cask Finish
If you can't pick between indulging his love for whisky or for rum, boy, do I have the dram for you! Records as far back as 1815 show casks of rum being sold in Campbeltown, shipped across the Atlantic Ocean. This latest Double Cask is an homage to that history, being finished in Guyanese Demerara rum casks for a minimum of eight months, imparting exotic flavours on the classic coastal dram from Glen Scotia.
The Loch Fyne Chocolate & Orange Liqueur
For Dad's with a sweet tooth, our signature whisky liqueur is a firm customer favourite as it's natural flavourings of chocolate, tangerine and orange, with a warming aroma of deluxe Scotch whisky. Created for whisky lovers seeking a sophisticated and complex alternative, it is a perfect gift.
Laphroaig Lore Gift Set
If all you know is that he is an Islay fan, you can't go far wrong with this Islay icon. It even comes with two glasses for you to share a dram with Dad. Packed with their signature peat and smoke combination, the expression also holds a rich and complex sweetness, in a new twist on a classic Laphroaig. A wee belter!
The Loch Fyne Teaninich 8 Year Old
This hard to find wee expression will delight your Highland whisky-loving old man. Hailing from Teaninich distillery in Alness, this 8-year-old single malt is the latest addition to The Loch Fyne's private cask collection. Limited to only 475 bottles, this rare dram boasts delicious flavours of popcorn, treacle and buttery biscuits.
