Father's Day is fast approaching, and maybe you’re still scratching your head about what to get your old man. Don’t worry – we’ve all been there. Why not ditch the typical gift cards and gadgets this year and go for something altogether more versatile, intriguing and delicious? A bottle of Irish Whiskey makes the best Father’s Day gift, and here are six reasons why.
1. It’s Less Likely to End in a Hangover
Irish whiskey is traditionally triple-distilled, giving it a smooth mouthfeel by removing impurities known as congeners. The congeners are the things in whiskey that contribute to hangovers, so dad will most certainly thank you for buying him a bottle of Irish whiskey for Father’s Day that he can enjoy in the evening, and wake up feeling his best self in the morning! Irish whiskey also has a rich diversity in flavour due to its blended style. Think smooth caramel, infusions of oak, hearty fruitcake and aromatic vanilla, all in one bottle.
2. It’s Affordable
Premium Irish whiskeys don’t have to break the bank, especially if you’re doing the sensible thing and splitting the cost of a Father’s Day present between siblings. Of course, the price of whiskey varies, and if you have an unlimited budget there are Irish whiskeys such as the Emerald Isle collection by the Craft Irish Whiskey Co which go for $2,000,000 at auction! But… for the rest of us who don’t have stratospheric budgets (sorry dad), Malones Triple Cask Irish Whiskey is a premium Irish Whiskey that’s full of flavour - at a slightly more affordable price.
3. It’s Great For Entertaining
There’s only one thing that can help your dad become a better host, and that’s a bottle of Irish whiskey. Afterall, we’re well known in Ireland for our cheerful hospitality! Irish whiskey really is the best Father’s Day gift for a dad who loves to entertain, and his guests will delight in being served a whiskey infused with the character of the Emerald Isle.
4. It’s Sublime In Cocktails
Irish whiskey makes a great gift for Father’s Day because of its versatility, it can be enjoyed on its own or used to make a variety of cocktails. One of the reasons it’s such a great choice for mixed drinks is due to its smooth, mellow flavour that doesn’t overpower other ingredients, yet adds unique character. Whether it’s a classic Whiskey Old Fashioned with Angostura Bitters, or a smooth and silky Irish Coffee that your dad enjoys most, we can guarantee that the gift of Irish whiskey for Father’s Day will be much appreciated. Irish whiskey also makes great summer cocktails, perfect for a BBQ to celebrate Father’s Day.
5. It Can be a Collector’s Item
Whiskey collecting is no new trend, and there are many different types of collectors. Some just like to look at all those beautiful bottles on the shelf, and some are in it for the profits that can be made. First edition bottles in particular can make good collector’s items, as their value may increase over time. Giving a whiskey gift for Father’s Day can open up this intriguing world, starting off your dad’s collection or adding to his current one. However, he may not be able to resist drinking the smooth amber liquid.
6. It’s Sustainable
Irish whiskey production is becoming more sustainable by the day, and can therefore make a sustainable Father’s Day gift depending on which brand you buy. Distilleries in Dublin’s historic whiskey district - the Liberties - are implementing sustainable ideas and practices into their distilling processes. Malones Irish Whiskey is distilled at a Dublin distillery with certifications from Origin Green Ireland and Planet of Plenty, and strives for sustainability throughout, from growing grain on site, to working with eco-friendly suppliers, to minimising waste. Focusing on sustainability doesn’t have to compromise flavour, and therefore Malones Irish Whiskey makes a fantastic Father’s Day gift for eco-conscious, whiskey-loving dads.
