Gift Guide: Father’s Day

Two words: alcohol and skin care.

Two things my father can’t live without and in reality, needs more than anything.

With the dawn of Father’s Day so immediately upon us, now’s the time to open our wallets and shower the old man in things he wants, needs or otherwise to show how much money we’re willing to throw at him. And what self-respecting 50-plus year-old man doesn’t like some dark spirit and self grooming from time-to-time?

Nothing shows love quite like it.

We’ve put our feelers out far and wide for some of the most winning gift ideas for Dad and our favourites are below.

Wild Turkey Diamond WHiskey

In conjunction with their Diamond celebration, Wild Turkey’s Diamond Anniversary Edition makes for the perfect gift for

Father’s Day. The exclusive, limited-edition Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary mingles 13 to 16-year-old whiskies to create an extremely rare, curated Bourbon that is testament to one son’s love for his father and mentor.

Jimmy Russell has long been recognised as an innovator and steward of Bourbon history and craft, remaining staunchly committed to using traditional methods. As the world’s longest-tenured, active Master Distiller, he’s known as the ‘Buddha of Bourbon,’ the ‘Master Distiller’s Master Distiller’ and the ‘Elder Statesman.’ To honour Jimmy’s remarkable 60 years as Master Distiller at Wild Turkey’s Lawrenceburg, Kentucky distillery (and his own extraordinary 33 years working at his father’s side), Eddie Russell wanted to make something extra special.

The result is Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary. Never before has such a product been created to honour a single individual who has so substantially contributed to the long success of a spirits brand.

For $150, you know it’s good.
