With writing cards, visiting in-laws and spreading festive cheer all at the forefront of our minds, present buying can sometimes fall by the wayside. Give them the gift of whisky this year with these 5 last-minute gift ideas.
Note – there is a more up-to-date 2021 Christmas gift guide here.
1) Whisky globe decanter
This handcrafted globe whisky decanter is made with frosted glass and is perfect for someone to whom whisky means the world.
2) A distillery tour
Give the gift of experience this Christmas. If, like us, you’re based in Scotland’s capital, consider Glenkinchie. There’s a bus service from Edinburgh straight to the distillery and back again every day of the week.
3) Premade cocktails
The folks at Mothership have created the perfect stocking filler with these pre-mixed cocktails. Serve chilled with a lemon twist.
4) Whisky stones
Chiselled from volcanic soapstone, these stones keep your whisky cool without diluting the flavour.
5) Gift them a dram
While any whisky drinker would love the above gifts, you can always lean on an old faithful – a bottle of liquid gold. Looking for a suggestion? Check out Bunnahabhain’s Stiùireadair – a lovely Islay single malt matured in first- and second-fill sherry casks.
