Treat Dad to a high-spirited Father’s Day with these tried and tasted premium tipples.
If your Dad’s partial to a tipple then you’re one of the lucky ones who’ll have no problem deciding what to get him on June 16 this year. But that doesn’t mean you have to give Dad any old bottle of booze. Here’s 5 that we think he’ll really appreciate.
Hennessy X.O French Cognac, £90
If your Dad’s a cognac man, this iconic House of Hennessy creation will definitely impress. Produced from Cognac’s finest regions, its aromas include citrus, peach and vanilla with an aftertaste of orange and peach.
Copper Dog Whisky, £29.95
Treat the whisky-loving Dad to something a little different with Copper Dog Whisky. It’s velvety smooth and deliciously fruity, with hints of honey and aromatic spices. It’s a quirky blend of eight single malts that have been handcrafted and blended in Speyside, Scotland. It’s great as a slow drinker or combined with his favourite mixer.
Don Julio 1942 Tequila, £130
If you’re looking to push the boat out this Father’s Day, this ultra-premium Añejo tequila should do the trick. It’s been aged for a minimum of 2.5 years and has a sweet taste of warm oak and hints of caramel and vanilla. Even better, you can engrave a name or message on the bottle to give Dad a little keep-sake after the drinking is done.
CÎROC Summer Watermelon, £35.88
If your Dad’s partial to a cocktail, the latest summer flavour from CÎROC will have him testing out his mixology skills. It’s perfect for family BBQs and easily whipped up into a sublime summer spritz. Just mix a shot or two with 20ml of lemonade, 40ml of soda and 10ml cranberry juice, and garnish with lime, watermelon and fresh mint. CÎROC Vodka is distilled five times to ensure it’s the very best quality, before delicate and natural watermelon flavours are added.
The Glenlivet Code, £89.90
This limited edition whisky from The Glenlivet breaks all the rules by releasing no cask or tasting notes, inviting whisky lovers to put their senses to the test. The idea is to avoid any preconceived notions about its flavours. It’ll be an eye-catching addition to his whisky collection, encased in a suave-looking opaque black bottle.
