FIVE FATHERS DAY GIFT IDEAS FROM RIDDLES
If you are like me and are completely disorganised and are in desperate need of a last minute, but still thoughtful and meaningful gift for that old Dad of yours, look no further. Riddles is here to help with some ideas to make that old man smile on Fathers Day!!
1)TASTING NIGHT TICKETS
Riddles offers a range of tasting nights, covering a broad spectrum of spirits and liquors for your enjoyment. Depending on the taste preference, we have everything from rum, gin and whiskey tastings, even to vodka and martini masterclasses – A perfect opportunity for you and your Dad to learn more about the alcohol you drink, and even learn to make a martini like the notorious British Spy 007 drinks!
The following tastings are available:
21st July-Vodka Tasting and Martini Masterclass
28th July- Summer Gin Tasting
18th August-Exquisite Rum Tasting
25th August- Love Manchester Gin Tasting
2) OLD GRANDAD BOURBON
Something special for the older Dads and Grandads out there who have acquired a taste for bourbon. Old Grandad is a high rye mash bill bourbon, bringing an intense spice to the taste. It is a Kentucky Straight bourbon that has been aged for a minimum of four years, and brought to you by a distillery that describe themselves as ‘The Grand Daddy of Bourbon’ – Some title to have… An added bonus is that it’s totally affordable at only £30.55 and not one of these outrageously expensive whiskeys.
3) TAMDHU SINGLE MALT
If bourbon doesn’t tickle the old man’s fancy and he prefers something more along the lines of single malt scotch, look nowhere else but the Tamdhu 10yr. For only £39.85 you are receiving an incredibly smooth Christmas cake-like scotch with an array of vanilla to the flavour. With the distillery being founded in 1897, these guys have been doing this a while so it’s safe to say you’re in safe hands with this gorgeous whiskey. Another upside is that the bottle isn’t half bad looking either, giving a good looking boost do your dad’s collection.
4) BROOKLYN GIN
Gin is totally in at the moment and if it is this gorgeous spirit that your Dad prefers worry not. It can be quite daunting choosing a gin as a gift at the moment, seeing as there is just so much to choose from, but we at Riddles wholeheartedly recommend the Brooklyn Gin. Using hand cracked juniper berries and freshly cut citrus peels, the overall flavour is zesty and fruity whilst maintaining a balance of juniper inspired dryness. The bottle is also wonderful on the eyes, with it’s extremely masculine metallic logo stuck onto the front of it’s aesthetically pleasing shape.
5) RIDDLES EMPORIUM/BAR GIFT VOUCHERS
Something simple to finish off with. If your Dad is anything like my own, he is extremely picky about what he likes to drink. Sometimes an opportunity to choose for yourself without having to pay is a more appreciated way to go, and if this is the case gift vouchers are the perfect option. With money off in either the shop products or the bar cocktails, you can treat your dad to a night out without running the risk of getting it wrong ; )
We hope this list was helpful and helps you over your last minute fathers day panic. We hope to see you and your Father this Sunday at Riddles bar for a nice cocktail! To all the Dads out there, a very Happy Father’s Day to you!
