Dear dad …

Gift ideas for dad this Fathers’ Day

All we really need to know about Aviation Gin is that Ryan Reynolds tasted it, loved it, and immediately grabbed an ownership interest in it. And if it’s good enough for this Hollywood actor, writer, producer and most-swoonworthy-handsome-man-alive, it’s good enough for us. Fortunately, besides being hot and having a wicked sense of humour, he’s also got good taste. This Portland-distilled, American craft gin is amazing … subtle, smooth, balanced, it can fly solo or take any mixed drink to new heights.

Moving over to Italy, and to Mazzatti Beer, which exemplifies the Italian style of this top favourite tipple. A full-flavoured, exceptionally-made, classic, Italian beer brewed with pure, natural water from the Alpine stream that runs through Lagundo, it has no added chemicals and has a natural, refreshing taste.

If your dad is strong and bold he’s a banner man … the one always chosen for his ability to carry the banner and inspire courage in those he leads. Bannermans Red Seal is an incredibly fine Scotch whisky … smooth, rich, sophisticated. Like dad!

Enjoy Don Papa Rum neat, on the rocks or over one large ice cube. Whichever you choose, you’ll find this small batch, single island, premium aged rum, smooth, delicate and delicious! Made on the sugar island of Negros Occidental in the Philippines, and distilled from some of the finest sugar cane in the world, it’s aged for more than seven years in American oak barrels in the foothills of Mount Kanlaon, and is all vanilla, honey and candied fruits.

Solving that ever-growing ‘what to drink when you’re not drinking’ dilemma, SEEDLIP is  the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit. Blended and bottled in England, it has zero calories, is sugar-free, and has no sweetener or artificial ingredients. Try the new version – Seedlip Grove – it’s zesty, citrusy and is great with tonic and a twist of orange peel for a delicious non-alcoholic drink.

So … we have the drinks. What about the bags? For funky colourful coolers, we look no further than Lou Harvey, where you’ll find a range of eight different cooler bags in loads of different design options … so there’ll be something exactly right for you.

The new Thule Construct Backpack (24L) is a functional backpack with just the right amount of storage, organisation and casual style to transition from the work week to the weekend. Keep your phone or glasses safe in the soft-lined protective pocket and store the rest of your day to day essentials and electronics in multiple pockets. It’s a gift your dad will use every single day … and Thule is known to be exceptional quality, so he’ll be using it, and thanking you, for years to come.
