Whiskey Lover Gift Ideas

Gift Ideas: The Whiskey Lover

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, GIFT GUIDE By

You can always buy he-who-loves-whiskey a bottle of the good stuff and be done with it. Or you could get a little creative with your holiday generosity.

We found a couple new ways to chill the amber fire, looked at companies who are putting whiskey flavor in jerky, coffee and toothpicks, and tracked down a history/guide that every devoted drinker should own. There are gift ideas for the fresh whiskey lover and the man who’s loved whiskey forever. Run through this round up, pick something good, and make any whiskey fan happy.

The Original Whiskey Ball

The Original Whiskey Ball

While there’s no wrong way to serve whiskey, serving it over an ice sphere just feels extra right. The Original Whiskey Ball comes with two silicone molds to make perfectly round ice balls embossed with a “W” which stands for whiskey. Just in case you forget what you’re pouring. (Though that seems unlikely.) – Shop Now
