Michters us1 bourbon whiskey 700ml

Michter’s US*1 Bourbon Whiskey 700ml

In partnership with Michter’s

Based in the heart of Louisville, Kentucky, Michter’s Distillery celebrates an extraordinarily rich heritage that dates back to 1753. This brand spares no expense in its effort to produce some of the greatest American whiskey ever made, hence its motto of “Cost Be Damned.” Tremendous attention is given to every step of the production process, a fact made clear from your first whiff to your final finish. To put it another way: this stuff is goooooooood.

For a true taste of what the label is all about, look no further than Michter’s US*1 Bourbon. It comes from no more than two dozen barrels and thereby constitutes a small batch expression in the purest sense of the concept. After resting in fire-charred, new American white oak, it hits the bottle at 45.7% ABV and delivers tasting notes of rich caramel, balanced vanilla, and stone fruit, with smoky accents and an oak finish. Dad’s palate won’t know what hit it and yours won’t either, presuming you can get him to share. – AUD$126

Penfolds bin 28 shiraz

Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz

In partnership with Penfolds

For over 60 years, Penfolds‘ iconic Bin 28 Shiraz has remained a staple in the wine cellars of Australia’s biggest oenophiles. A ripe and robust celebration of South Australia’s incredible grape-growing climate, Bin 28 has a generous flavour profile that has become a hallmark of Penfold’s legacy. Originally named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945 and from which the wine was first sourced, the drop has undergone some changes of late. Adding a few new vineyards to the blend, the Bin 28 is now a mixed-region drop with a Barossa scope, and the wine world is loving it.

Recently, the famed bottling was awarded an incredible 94 points by Andrew Caillard MW, from the Institute of Masters of Wine, who described the drop as a “lovely iron fist in a velvet glove”. The multi-region, multi-vineyard blend is also a stunning show of value. Unlike its well-priced older brother, Penfolds Bin 28 Shiraz comes in at a more than affordable AUD$50 per bottle, remarkable for a wine of this precedence. – AUD$50

The Macallan 12-Year-Old Double Cask

Perhaps the best value release from arguably the world’s greatest Scotch producer, The Macallan 12-Year-Old Double Cask is a true top-shelf special. The new age statement single malt follows the Craigellachie’s distillery‘s revered formula, maturing in a combination of American and European Sherry oak for a minimum of 12 years. Rich with creamy butterscotch on the nose, the release is a warming ode to the great Scotch-makers of old, which isn’t really surprising when you consider The Macallan has been killing the whisky game since 1824. If dad has always wanted to dip into the fine stuff, this $80 bottle is the perfect entry. Just don’t blame us when the collection starts to get out of hand. – AUD$80

Lark whisky tasting flight

Lark Australian Whisky Tasting Flight

Australia’s most iconic whisky house, Lark Distilling Co. is known for making some incredible drops, from the one-off Lark Legacy to the staple Muscat Cask, but they ain’t exactly cheap. With an average price in the $300s, getting your hands on a bottle of Bills Lark’s best is no mean feat, however, for Father’s Day this year, the label has done a good deed. The new Lark Whisky Tasting Flight gift pack brings together three of Lark’s best-loved releases in one place. The flagship Classic Cask single malt, the label’s first-ever blended malt SYMPHONY Nº1, and the distinctive Cask Strength single malt all join forces for a 3 x 100ml set that also comes with a laser-etched Lark Glencairn Glass. Best of all, this ode to Tasmanian whisky will only set you back AUD$180, not that you have to tell dad that. – AUD$180

Teeling Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey

Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about dads who love Irish Whiskey, either. This year, we’re recommending the Teeling Single Pot Still release, due to its unconventional take on the fabled spirit. This time around, the Teeling bottling arrives via Dublin, the first whisky to be distilled in the city for nearly 50 years. Naturally, it pays homage to the Dublin-style, which has long since disappeared from shelves, with a mixture of 50 per cent malted and 50 per cent unmalted ingredients. Sláinte! – AUD$80

Hibiki Harmony Whisky

The rise of Japanese whisky over the past few years has been nothing short of incredible and releases like the Hibiki Harmony are a big reason why. An unadulterated take on the whisky-making process, Hibiki’s method is one that celebrates the spirit in its purest form, however, Harmony takes things a step further. A blend of more than 10 malts and three grain whiskies, the bottling is up to approximately 20 years old and overflowing with rich flavours and aromas. – AUD$245

Lark Classic Cask Single Malt

Lark’s most iconic release and 2019 Best in Show by Country winner at the London Spirits Competition, the Classic Cask is a true whisky lover’s grail. Double-distilled in locally-made copper-pot stills and aged in small casks, the release is about as grassroots as it gets and the flavour reciprocates. Arriving with a mouthful of citrus and butterscotch, the Classic Cask gets a healthy kick from its subtle hint of peat, making it the ideal dram for a winter’s night in. – AUD$199
