Father’s Day Gifts: Local drinks products and experience dads will love

Post Thumbnail

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.

Beer-y merchandise

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.

Garments start from £15-£25 and beers from £2.45-£5.80. To view the collection, click here.

A dream dram from Kingsbarns Distillery

Treat your dad to a bottle of the distillery’s award-winning single malt, Dream to Dram and you’ll also get two branded Glencairn glasses included.

The perfect way to share a dram together, the distillery manager Peter Holroyd, is also set to host a special online tasting on Father’s Day from 8pm.

The bottle costs £44.95 and can be purchased here.

Vodka and nibbles from Tayport Distillery

This smooth malted barley vodka has been perfectly paired with a range of tasty premium Scottish nibbles to create the ultimate night in.

Featuring a 50cl of the premium vodka, Podberry treats, award-winning chocolates from The Chocolate Tree and lemonade and soda from Franklin and Son’s, there’s plenty there to keep your dad entertained for the evening.

The set costs £37 and can be purchased here.

Local berry wines from Cairn O’Mohr

If your dad loves the odd glass of red or white wine, it’s about time you introduced him to one of Scotland’s only winemakers, Cairn O’Mohr.

Made in Errol, Perthshire, the brand uses locally sourced, seasonal berries to make its delicious drinks which are great for cracking open on a glorious summer day.

In this half box collection, you’ll receive six bottles of the juicy layered wines which features the staple Cairn O’Mohr range including bramble, strawberry, autumn oak leaf, spring oak leaf, raspberry and elderberry.

The half case collection is priced at £46.20 and can be purchased here.

Mixed case of St Andrews Brewing Co.’s finest

For those dads who enjoy a pint or two, this 12-pack selection featuring four session IPAs, four pale ales and four lagers is a great way to show your dad you care.

The firm brewed its first beer in 2012 and is well known for using as many local ingredients in its beers as possible. St Andrews Brewing Co. also runs a regular brewery tour usually, which would be an excellent present for next year to follow on from this tasty beer selection.

The mixed-case costs £25 and can be purchased here.
