What do you buy the man who has everything for Father’s Day 2018? Why not get him something that is as unique as he is – an old and rare whisky.
Father’s Day is a celebration of Fathers, and their paternal bonds, all around the world, but not always on the same day – for many it is celebrated in March, on the 19th. This can be traced back to the middle ages and is strongly linked with the Catholic Church with its associations with St. Joseph’s Day. Although, today most countries in Europe and the US celebrate Father’s day on the 3rd Sunday in June, which in 2018 is June 17th .
Whenever you choose to celebrate it, getting a thoughtful gift can be a challenge as shops are already gearing up and selling the usual cornucopia of socks, aftershave or latest gadget or gizmo! While these gifts may be gratefully received, we suggest a greater gift, one that reflects the time taken, perseverance, trust and skill that are hallmarks of a great Father. These qualities do not happen by chance and are the same virtues that are adhered to in crafting a fine Scottish single malt.
Old and Rare Scottish whisky cannot be rushed, there is no shortcut or imitation – it is the result of skilled craftsmen using their vast wealth of experience to not only create something unique, but then hone and care for it for generations to come. Using whisky to celebrate a significant date or anniversary is nothing new, we have written about using a fine old whisky to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or marriage in the past.
The reasoning is the same, if you are looking to buy a special bottle for your Father, then we suggest the following examples from our online bottle shop:
One bottle, not enough?
If you are looking for something more unique than these fantastic bottles, then you might consider the ultimate gift – their very own cask of whisky!
We can help you to select, purchase and transfer ownership of a cask of whisky to your Father. We can then manage the storage of the cask until a time when they choose to bottle their own whisky (we offer a bespoke bottling service) or possibly transfer ownership of the cask to a loved one or sell on the open market.
