Forget the woolly slippers or eau de musk: this year surprise your dad with something special he can sit back, relax, and enjoy on Father’s Day, Sunday 19th of June. Let us take the hassle out of choosing a gift, pop in store or browse online for a range of great Father's Day Gift Ideas. Here are a few of our team's top picks.
For a Father's Day gift that really makes a difference, this limited edition Irish whiskey is perfect. The former World Whiskey of the Year, Redbreast 12-Year-Old, now comes complete with a limited edition branded, copper bird feeder.
The intricately designed shell sits around the bottle, and once removed, can be filled with bird feed and hung in the garden to keep our feathery friends fed throughout the year, protecting common species from becoming endangered. The bird feeder enables whiskey fans to sit back and enjoy a warming drink in the comfort of their own home while watching nature fly by.
The perfect gift for the whiskey and nature lover in your life!

Since the Teeling brothers opened their distillery doors in Dublin's Liberties area in 2015, they have released some of the most exciting and acclaimed Irish whiskey expressions.
Their new Sommelier Series was created to capture the unique character of various wine-producing regions of the world, by ageing Irish whiskey in used wine barrels. This is the fourth release in the series, and focuses on the Recioto style. Recioto is a classic sweet red wine made in the Veneto region of northern Italy.
Teeling Small Batch was aged in ex-Recioto barrels for up to 12 months. The result is a unique, rich Irish Whiskey with a balance of chocolate and blackberry sweetness, dried fruit, baking spice and a distinct sour cherry tang, imparted by the high-quality Recioto barrels.
If your dad's taste leans more towards beer than wine or spirits, then check out our Craft Beer Club. Take the hassle out of choosing with a 3 month or 6 month subscription, with a mixed box of craft beers specially selected by our beer team delivered direct to your door each month.
Each box features new releases, the freshest seasonal brews and a sprinkling of some of our all-time favourites along with a booklet to guide you through each beer with tasting notes and background information on each.
