Father's Day is a special occasion to celebrate and honour the fantastic men who have supported and nurtured us or who are helping to raise our children. For dads who love whisky, a unique and thoughtful whisky gift idea will make his day extra special.

Whether he prefers a classic bourbon or a peaty single malt, there's a whisky or whisky-tasting kit that's perfect for him. And if you'd rather not gift him booze, we've got some fantastic whisky-related gift suggestions, from jerry-can mini bars and steampunk whiskey dispensers, to a customisable whiskey tasting journal.

No matter what your budget or your dad's whisky preferences, there's sure to be a gift in this guide that he'll love.

RusticDesignTR's handmade metal whisky dispensers are like nothing we've seen before. These steampunk figurines have an outstanding life-like quality and would be a key talking point in any bar. The functionality of the dispensers (for any spirit or wine) and lamps makes them a great utility in the home. These dispensers/lamps are hand made with plumbing parts, which creates an interesting vintage industrial look. The dispenser system is built onto a board of wood which is hand stained and varnished. Will fit most regular size spirits bottles up to one litre. Made in Turkey, worldwide shipping is available. Returns & exchanges are accepted.

A double-walled steel Norlan Tumbler is perfect for dads who enjoy their spirits outdoors. As with the original glass Norlan, the Norlan Steel's shape is designed to help release the ethanol within your favourite spirit (whiskey, whisky, brandy etc) allowing the scents to become more present when nosing, which in turn can improve the flavour when drinking. This tumbler is produced from blow-molded stainless steel. Inside, the tumbler is finished with a food-grade safe electroplated coating that acts as a mirror for the contents. On the outside, the tumblers are hand-burnished before receiving their final finish in polished stainless steel or mirror black PVD coating.

Whisky Gift Sets For Dad

A bottle of his favourite whiskey is a classic gift to please any whiskey-loving dad. For something unique, consider getting him a special edition, one from an independent bottler or one aged longer than he usually drinks.

Alternatively, a tasting set can be a wonderful gift if he loves to try different types of whiskey or if you're not sure precisely what whisky he likes. These sets usually include a variety of whiskies in small (usually 30ml, though the Starward Trio are 200ml) bottles, allowing him to try something new and compare flavours and styles.
