Lastly from The Glasgow Distillery you could join your dad for the Father’s Day Whisky Tasting Special for £35. The distillery has partnered with Once Upon A Whisky to offer a virtual tasting experience on 20th June. Simply purchase two tickets to The Glasgow Distillery Company Father’s Day Whisky Tasting and you’ll both take part in an in-depth, fun and engaging 1.5-hour educational experience.

Why not make the most of this beautiful weather and treat your dad to the Virginia BBQ In A Box.

Catoctin Creek Distillery in Virginia, US has partnered with Tom Hixson of Smithfield who has chosen the best American-style meat cuts. Working closely with the distillery, Tom has created three limited-edition rye-based hot sauces and the box includes a full preparation guide with recipes to indulge in authentic Virginian sides and cocktails. If that’s not enough to tempt you, instructions for Cornhole (a traditional Virginia garden game) and a Spotify playlist is also included to musically transport you to Virginia.

It is available now for pre-order online with delivery on June 17th and 18th ahead of Father’s Day on the 20th.

If you’ve always wanted to take your dad on a round-the-world-trip, then this could be the perfect gift; albeit on a slightly smaller scale. The Dads! Dads! Dads! Cocktail Box represents three of the key whiskey producing regions around the world; America, Ireland, and Scotland, and includes a cocktail to highlight their unique characteristics.
