5 Spirited Gifts for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is June 16th, and what better way to show appreciation for the dads in your life than with a spirited gift? This year, skip the ties and instead raise a glass to the special men in your life. Whether your dad is a whiskey connoisseur, a cognac enthusiast, or a mezcal aficionado, there’s a perfect bottle out there waiting to be enjoyed. Here are five spirited gifts for Father’s Day: 


Give dad the gift of Fortune’s Fool The Overture, a premium woman-founded and led whiskey producer that ages their straight rye whiskey for 39 months in the highest quality barrels from Napa Valley’s Seguin Moreau Cooperage and bottled at 109.4 proof. Expect a light spiciness with hints of berry, dried orange and white peach, and warm honey and oak. $59.99

This New York founder-led husband and wife business was built from the ground up, and creates whiskey with love.  Fort Hamilton Single Barrel Rye was the first bottling and flagship of the distillery, distilled from 90% NY Rye grain & 10% Malted Barley, representing a traditional mash bill seeded in the time of the American Revolution. Non- chill filtered and aged for at least three years in American White Oak, and each barrel is individually bottled in Brooklyn, yielding 130 bottles at 90 proof. 750ml for $59.99

Give dad the gift of award-winning, sonic-enhanced BLACKENED® X Rabbit Hole Distillery, a limited-edition release blend of straight bourbon whiskeys distilled in Tennessee and Kentucky, and finished in Calvados Casks. Rabbit Hole’s unique mash bills and sourcing malt from Europe, coupled with BLACKENED Whiskey’s sonic-enhancement process to extract more flavor from the casks are something unique to give dad this Father’s Day. $149.99

 The first Master Blender’s Selection release in the past three years, give dad a gift as unique as he is. One of the best kept secrets of the Hennessy range, the liquid is made up of passion and knowledge from 18 exceptional distillers- focusing on choosing the very best eaux-de-vie, followed by a maturing process of at least seven years in French oak barrels. Find notes of spice and candied orange, followed by creamy cocoa briche and sweet spices on the palate.  $120

Mala Mia Mezcal 

Brand new to the market, this black-owned artisanal mezcal company is perfect for the mezcal loved. The agave is roasted for four days instead of the typical seven in stone ovens, and embraces the true spirit of artisanal craftsmanship, by using a massive horse-drawn stone wheel or tahona to grind the agave, followed by fermentation and bottling. Variety Pack, $79.99
