With Father’s Day fast approaching, why not entice them with a few whisky gifts? We at Whisky Magazine have put our collective heads together to figure out six of the best presents you could give a dram-loving dad on June 19th.

Subscription to American Whiskey Magazine

Issue 17 of American Whiskey Magazine

Who doesn’t love Bourbon, or at the very least want to read about all the brilliant liquid being made stateside? American Whiskey magazine has exploded in popularity and manages to draw not just the biggest names in the drinks industry, but also Hollywood superstars, Matthew McConaughey and Ian Somerhalder included. There’s no denying the ‘coolness’ of the magazine, but more importantly it’s fascinating, educational and a real page-turner.

“The Art of Whisky” by Ernie Button

Cover of The Art of Whisky

This book featuring wonderful photographs Ernie Button is a must-own for any whisky connoisseurs. Highlighting the world of single malt Scotch, Button captures the intimate and near-unbelievable patterns found at the bottom of once-whisky filled glasses, with every image completely different to each other. Whisky legend and former Whisky Magazine editor Charles MacLean provides the textual analysis in the book, making this the ideal gift that will be sure to fascinate and entertain. The book can be found easily online, and shouldn't cost more than £15.

Dinner at The Glenturret’s Michelin-starred restaurant

Perhaps the most prestigious restaurant in Scotland belonging to a distillery, The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant in Crieff was awarded a Michelin star earlier this year, making it the perfect choice for any fathers who enjoy not only whisky but fine dining too. Located in the heart of Scotland’s oldest working distillery, dinner is currently priced at £125 per person with a full menu available on their site. Is it on the expensive side? Yes, but it’s not every day a Michelin-starred restaurant belonging to a distillery can be enjoyed, and the experience is sure to be a special one.

Glencairn Glass

Without doubt the most iconic whisky-drinking glass, these gorgeous glasses are not only perfect for drinking out of, but look stunning when on display, unrivalled when it comes to glass design. Not just its aesthetic, its wide base allows the liquid to breathe and release all of its wonderful flavours and aromas ready to be enjoyed. Glencairn have kindly provided a father’s day discount too – 20% if you use the code DAD20 before June 19th – but please note this can only be used on the full glass range and not decanters or other accessories. This is perfect for veteran whisky tasters and newcomers alike, and of all the items on this list, this is the most risk-averse for a dram-loving dad. Full availability and pricing is available through their website. Remember the code!

Scotch Malt Whisky Society Membership (SMWS)

The SMWS is perhaps one of the most beloved organizations for whisky lovers to be a part of, and for just £89, you can provide not only a lucrative membership, but also an exciting and varied festival tasting pack featuring 5x 25ml samples of rare releases. Instead of answering what’s included in the membership, it might be easier to discuss what’s not included. But alas, members can enjoy monthly releases of new bottlings, online events, tutored tastings, limited edition cask access, a magazine, and the exploration of SMWS venues. In particular the monthly releases mean your generosity will be recognised all year round, not just on Sunday.

Whisky Magazine’s Ultimate Gift Box

The Ultimate gift box

This needs to be prefixed by saying that, at the time of writing, there’s an extremely limited number available, so get in there quick! The ultimate gift box features a variety of items including not just annuals and magazines, but also a tastings journal, glass, poster and minature whiskies. At £39.99, it’s exceptional value given the content available, and the inclusion of a journal and glass is particularly appealing for anybody whose new to the world of whisky and wants to begin their own journey of exploration.
