Six Gifts That'll Knock Dad's Socks Off

This one goes out to all the Dads out there! The whisky-drinking, cocktail-shaking, spirit-appreciating legends who show us infinite love and support (and help change the odd flat tyre). Take your pick from our gift list below and raise a glass to your #1 Dad.

A whisky with his name on it? Dad will love that! You’ve got two ways to approach this thoughtful gift. The first is building on a base of Archie Rose Single Malt Whisky by adding up to two individual malts. You can choose from three: NSW Pale Malt, NSW Chocolate Malt and Native Stringybark Smoked Malt. The other approach is picking from one of our presets: Rich Fruit & Chocolate or Bold Smoke or Chocolate & Nuts – you can’t miss with either of these, they’re both tasty! From here you can choose your label colour and add Dad’s name, so no one knicks his drink, and write him a heartfelt message, reconfirming your favourite child status.


We all know a Dad who offers you a G&T the moment you set foot in his home. Make his gin dreams come true with a bottle that’s been made just for him. Like Tailored Whisky, our Tailored Gin can be customised to Dad’s liking. You have the choice of four preset flavours or building your own by selecting up to three botanicals. Then it’s on to the label artwork, Dad’s name and a note to say thanks for being the best Dad there ever was. Cheers to that!


Ask any parent, not just your Dad, what their idea of a great gift is and they might admit it’s spending more time with you. Aww! Sure, life gets busy but making plans to do something with someone you love is a pretty special present if you ask us. So for this next gift idea, we recommend picking an Archie Rose experience for you and your Dad to enjoy together. There’s plenty to choose from; you could both learn how to become masters at making martinis; become Archie Rose bartenders for a day with our cocktail masterclasses or learn how to blend your own whisky. Dad will be chuffed! You can even purchase an experience gift ticket if you haven't yet got a date in mind.


If your Dad is such a legend that he deserves an award, we think an award-winning whisky is the next best thing. Like our Smoked Heritage Rye Malt Whisky which represents the ongoing exploration of Australia’s native eucalyptus trees and our commitment to innovation as one of the very few smoked rye whiskies in the world ever to be produced. He’ll love its balanced sweetness, smoke and rye spice and flavours of campfire, grilled peaches and prosciutto. Or you could grab him a bottle of our latest Whisky Gone A Rhye #2 release – a special edition of our Rye Malt Whisky, matured in Australian apera casks, that displays notes of honey-poached peaches, candied figs, vanilla crème brulée, sweet baking spices and lingering oak. If he’s a whisky buff he’ll be a fan!


If your Dad loves to throw a party then this gift is a no-brainer. A kit that includes our Toby Shaker, Hawthorn Strainer, Bell Jigger, Crystal Mixing Glass and Paddle-End Barspoon. In other words, a complete barware set for anyone as passionate as us about making great drinks.


You love your Dad, dearly, but sometimes he can be a little picky! And if you gift him something he’s not a fan of he’ll probably let you know about it. So for the hard-to-buy-for Father in your life, we suggest a Gift Certificate. He can choose anything on our website – from spirits and merch to experiences and tours. It’s the ultimate gift of choice, and knowing he’s picked something that’ll really tickle his fancy will keep everyone happy.
