Ahead of the big day, we’ve put together this gift guide for those dads who fancy themselves as drinks connoisseurs.
While many of us have had to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays and special occasions apart during lockdown, Phase 1 means we can now visit another household to see friends and family.
Which is great news for all the dads out there hoping to celebrate Father’s Day with their children and families.
Taking place on Sunday June 21, Father’s Day is dedicated to all the dads, uncles, grandpas and friends out there, so why not treat him to something special this year and show him how much you love him, no matter what distance may be between you?
From virtual tastings to gin packs, not to mention products to spruce up his favourite drinks, there’s something to suit all dads who enjoy a tipple.
Local gin fit for the biggest golf fan
If your dad is a big foodie who loves to get out and play a round of golf, then Eden Mill’s Golf Gin might be the perfect gift for him.
Featuring a 50cl bottle of the gin, two Eden Mill tulip glasses and an Eden Mill jug, he will be able to pour a round of drinks for all his golf buddies – once lockdown has been lifted of course.
The pack costs £32 and can be purchased here.
As well as getting your dad some new threads, why not treat him to a beer or two at the same time? Dundee-based 71 Brewing has a whole host of branded clothing. Tie that in with a beer or two and you’re onto a winner.
