Not So Old Fashioned: Enjoy a Tipple With Your Old Man This Father’s Day

Father’s Day is that one Sunday you usually celebrate with your old man cooking together and enjoying nice family meals along with chatter and drinks. While this year, as with several other occasions, COVID-19 has been a dampener but do not let it lower your spirits on Father’s Day.

Make the most of staying at home with your dad and plan a few surprises for him including sharing his favourite spirit – a beautiful aged single malt or an exquisitely blended bourbon whisky. Trust us, he would love to get pampered with his favourite drink, food and music! After all, it doesn’t take a thousand extraordinary gifts to tell our fathers how much they mean to us, and how grateful we are for his unconditional love.

Ringing in the spirit of Father’s Day, we bring to you different ways to enjoy one of the most well-known aged single malts in the world, the Bowmore Aged 12 Years Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, which is actually the oldest malt from Islay. And if your old man would like to go for something extremely smooth, then it has to be the world’s most popular and smoothest American Bourbon whisky – Jim Beam. Below are some ways you can enjoy these drinks the best with your dad this Sunday, or any other day! After all, enjoying a small moment of shared joy with one’s father is the biggest celebration of all.
