If your dad’s the kind of dad who spends almost all his spare time globe-trotting, look no further than tickets to The Glenlivet Distillery in Scotland. Not only can he get involved with a guided tasting and tour of the distillery, he can also tick his choice of things to do in Speyside off his bucket list. Surprise him with the tickets, a bottle of The Glenlivet 12 year single malt and a customised flask (so he can always travel with his favourite whisky by his side).
Dads play a special role in our lives, don’t they? They can be the head BBQ chef at a family outdoor dinner party and the next day be our personal mechanic, helping us when something goes wrong with the car. They can offer their invaluable pearls of wisdom and then in the next breath be dishing out corny puns.
Therefore, it’s only natural to want to gift them something special on Father’s Day to show you how much you appreciate them. But that’s easier said than done as our dear dads can be notoriously heard to buy for.
If you are still scratching your head when it comes to the perfect Father’s Day gift, we’ve got you covered with a fantastic selection of Father’s Day whisky gift ideas.
Whether he loves to cook up a storm in the kitchen, is obsessed with his step count, or loves spending a Sunday reading a good book and sipping on an Old Fashioned, skip the bad tie and boring socks combo this year and treat the father figure in your life to something he actually wants.
For The Traveller Dad

For The DIY Dad
The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve, a whisky cocktail book and a fermentation kit
For the dad that is happy to try his hand at anything, you can’t go wrong with a DIY Father’s Day whisky gift set. Test his cocktail-making skills with a bottle of The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve smooth scotch whisky and a whisky cocktail book. As an extra, keep him busy with a fermentation kit so he can make himself (and you) pickled everything. Before long, he’ll know how to rustle up beverages from a Scotch Coffee to a Purple Rain drink and even be able to garnish his cocktails with homemade pickled onions.
For The Chef Dad
The Glenlivet Captain’s Reserve, tickets to a cooking class and whisky infused chocolate
Every dad deserves a bottle of The Glenlivet Captain’s Reserve but if your dad spends half his time in the kitchen, there’s a good chance he’ll appreciate a bottle of the good stuff even more with its succulent flavours of mandarins in syrup, ripe poached pears and chocolate-dipped raisins. For a Father’s Day whisky gift that truly appeals to his love of things gastronomy, pair the bottle of The Glenlivet with tickets to a local cooking class and some whisky infused chocolate. You’re guaranteed to score some serious brownie points! Don’t forget to show him our guide to cooking with whisky too.
For The Old School Dad
The Glenlivet 15 Year Old, a whisky decanter and a vintage Polaroid camera
Take your dad’s love for all things retro to a whole new level with a vintage Polaroid camera and a whisky decanter. Gifted alongside a bottle of The Glenlivet 15 Year Old Scotch, he’ll be able to snap away, capturing fond memories of family get-togethers and create classic drinks like The Godfather cocktail or a Whisky Sour. He’ll be living his best old school life and you’ll be awarded favourite child status almost immediately.
For The Fitness Freak Dad
The Glenlivet 18 Year Old, tickets to a whisky & yoga class, and a fitness tracker
All the dads who can’t seem to get enough of working out tend to save the good stuff for special occasions. So there’s no better excuse than Father’s Day to treat him to a bottle of The Glenlivet 18 Year Old Scotch. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t surprise him with something fitness-related too — spoil him with a fitness tracker and tickets to a whisky & yoga class to really get his heart racing.
