Fathers Day: what are the distilleries offering?

So fathers day, eh? My email inbox is full of all sorts of offers for you to see. Normally,  press releases tend to pass me by, but the account is overflowing. I feel bad about all these hard working PR/Marketing people; emailing me with no reply and no reward for all their hardwork and all their emails. Well, since I am feeling guilty and giving, I am going to post up all the ideas. Use these ideas dear reader. Go forth and be generous to your fathers.

The Johnnie Walker:

(EWB analysis: You are minted and you really want to buy something nice for your Dad. Either that or he lent you an awful lot of money and this is the beginning of the repayments)

Johnnie Walker Blue Label is the perfect gift for people who appreciate the finer things in life. Blended to evoke the qualities of whiskies created by the Walkers in the early 19th century, this prestigious blend has a dark gold appearance with dense shades of amber, and highlights the full power of flavours such as hazelnuts, rose petals, sherry and oranges.  The blend has a well balanced, long and intense finish with hints of smoke, Islay seaweed and vintage oak resulting in a truly unique taste experience.

The Glenmorangie:

(EWB analysis: Inscribe your Dad’s name on the Legacy Wall. To make up for all the times you inscribed your name on the living room walls when you were little.)

Glenmorangie is offering the ultimate Father’s Day gift this year with the chance for whisky lovers to create their own legacy.The iconic Scottish brand will inscribe the names of 1843 people on the ‘Founders Wall’ of the Glenmorangie Distillery in a tribute to the year of its foundation. By receiving a bottle of the award-winning Glenmorangie 18 Years Old, whisky lovers can enjoy their own slice of history.The unique opportunity to make your father part of a ‘Living Legacy’ by having his name engraved on the wall of the Glenmorangie Distillery visitor centre is a timeless gift for Father’s Day.

To have a chance to do inscibe your Dad’s name on the Legacy Wall, follow the link here. Numbers are limited.

The Auchentoshan/Bowmore:

(EWB analysis: Take the Old boy out for the day. Hopefully he will appreciate his trip to a distillery so much, he will buy you a bottle) DADS GO FREE THIS FATHER’S DAY

Those looking for a last minute gift for Dad this Father’s Day should look no further than the Auchentoshan Distillery and Visitor Centre, where Dad’s will go absolutely FREE.
 Included in this special offer for Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June is The Classic Tour, a 1-hour guided tour of the distillery that provides the perfect introduction to Auchentoshan triple distilled Single Malt whisky. Those under 18 years old can enjoy the tour with Dad for free by simply booking a place at the Auchentoshan Visitor Centre. The gift also includes a dram for Dad at the end of the tour, which run for an hour, every hour from 10am until 4pm.
 For a small sum of £5.00, sons and daughters can take Dad on The Enhanced Tour, which includes the distillery tour plus three tastings of Auchentoshan Classic, Auchentohsan12 YO and Auchentoshan Three Wood.  Visitors can finish the day with a surprise purchase that will make Dad feel extra special by presenting him with a bottle of Auchentoshan 12 YO or the Auchentoshan Three Wood with a complimentary personalised label. Thank you Dad!
 And finally, for those traveling over to Islay for Father’s Day, don’t forget Dad’s will also go free at our sister Distillery, Bowmore the first Islay Single Malt.

Don’t panic, don’t panic. If those pieces of advice havn’t helped; there are always retailers. Royal Mile Whiskies, Master of Malt, Scotch Malt Whisky Society, The Whisky Exchange and many more.
