Not all fathers are the same and most of them are probably tired of getting cologne or a tie for their special day.  Is your father classic or irreverent? Beam Suntory will help you choose a perfect Father’s Day gift.

If you have left the gift buying for the last possible minute (again), make him happy with a gift in the shape of his favourite drink. Choose between a smoked single-malt whiskey Laphroaig or a Courvoisier cognac. Two drinks with very different characters that will adapt to your father’s personality.

If your dad is quite the adventurous soul and has always been the cool parent in your group of friends, he will probably appreciate opening his gift box to find a bottle of Laphroaig whiskey.

This drink comes from the Isle of Islay in Scotland. It has a complex character and is smoked through the malting of the barley over a peat fire; peat is a type of vegetable charcoal with a long tradition in some distilleries. Laphroaig Select has 3 different whiskeys: Laphoraig Quarter Cask, PX Cask and Laphroaig 10 year old.

On the other hand, your father might be a classic, one of those who loves talking about all his ventures from back when he was your age. For him a Courvoisier cognac would be the perfect gift. He will appreciate the quality and the harmony of the aromas in this drink. With a slight hint of vanilla and nuts, you can even perceive the aroma of French oak, complimented with jasmine and summer flowers.

In any case, one of these two drinks will surely be the perfect drink for Father’s Day. Forget traditional gifts and start renovating your ideas with gifts to drink, your father will appreciate it.

P.S. Father’s Day celebrations vary from country to country. Some places such as Spain celebrate this day on the same day as the festivity of St Joseph (19th March) many others wait until the 3rd Sunday of June to celebrate. Look up your date and celebrate with your dad!
