Archie Rose Father’s Day Gift Guide 2020
A botanical bouquet for Father’s Day? What a novel thought—and hey, maybe your Dad would like a big bunch of peonies on September 6. But we were thinking more of a botanical arrangement of the spirited kind. Like a Tailored Gin with lemon myrtle, river mint and coriander seed, poured over ice with a splash of mineral water and a sprig of rosemary. Or a Blend Your Own Whisky Class. Whatever his style, there’s a gift for every Dad in this Archie Rose Father’s Day Gift Guide.
BRANDED GLENCAIRN GLASS, $10
You’re on a tight budget, or maybe you want to add on a glass that’ll make his favourite whisky pop. Whatever it is, he’ll be happy with this tulip-shaped Glencairn glass, designed to hold up to 50ml of spirit—the ideal ratio of liquid to air if you ask those in the know.
COPPER JIGGER ($29), COPPER HAWTHORN STRAINER ($29) OR COPPER SHAKER ($39)
Dad not much of a sock and chocolate guy? He’s got taste, we get it. Hand over the finishing touches to his treasured bar cart with our bright copper cocktail tools, a necessary addition to a man’s home bar that will develop a beautiful patina as it ages… not unlike the man of the moment himself.
TAILORED VODKA OR GIN $99
Your Dad knows what he likes to drink, and he’s tried it all. Easy. Put your distiller hat on and create a personalised Vodka or Gin—you pick the botanicals and leave a message, we’ll print his name on the label and take care of the botanical blend.
Order before midnight 19 August for Father's Day delivery.
ARCHIE ROSE DISTILLERY TOUR AND TASTING $30
There’s always the golf course, but then there’s a Distillery Tour for two. This is for the eternal learner who wants to understand how his favourite things work—from vintage cars to spirits. Here, he’ll get to go behind-the-scenes, sampling our range of award-winning spirits while making friends and taking snaps to share with the rest of the family.
CONTINENTAL DELI HOT SAUCE GIFT SET, $99
Is he the kind of guy you’d find behind the BBQ with a Gin & Tonic in hand? Then, the gift is obvious. Get him this twin set: a Continental Deli hot sauce and our Distiller’s gin of choice for just $99. Fire it up.
GELATO MESSINA DULCE DE LECHE GIFT SET, $99
He’s classy, he’s classic, he’s got a notorious a sweet tooth. Sounds like our kind of guy. Our White Rye Old Fashioned Set will see him from spring through summer. We’re thinking an Old Fashioned with a generous serving of Gelato Messina’s Dulce De Lecce. Heck, we’ll even throw in a recipe card that combines the two. Happy days.
Ok, now we’re getting to the bottom of this list and you’re still not sure if you’re getting any warmer. That’s where gift certificates come in. It’s a far better option than just giving him money or an IOU, and will get him anything from the Archie Rose Shop, Experiences or Bar. Starts at $20.
BLEND YOUR OWN WHISKY CLASS, $125
Unlike your Dad’s jokes, whisky only gets better with age. Book him into our Blend Your Own Whisky Class where he can customise his own tipple from a selection of Scotch whiskies, each with a unique flavour profile while learning the history and intricacies of this hallowed spirit. We're hosting these in the Archie Rose Distillery to ensure you are comfortable during your visit with friendly social distancing measures in place.
BLEND YOUR OWN GIN CLASS, $115
If you’re long overdue for quality time, he’ll be over the moon with a Blend Your Own Gin Class hosted in our roomy distillery with friendly social distancing measures in place between guests. Together, you’ll learn the history of gin as well as how we make ours. He’ll also get to experiment with a selection of our distillates to create his own signature blend. Best of all? He’ll leave with two 200mL bottles of his new favourite gin.
