Father’s Day is on the horizon. It’s Sunday 16 June. If your old man is a whisky drinker, then you’ve come to the right place. If he’s a model railway enthusiast, then you’ve gone wrong. But maybe he’d like some whisky instead of a scale model of a Welsh branch line railway station from the 1950s. Much more sociable. 

There’s lots of Father’s Day stuff happening here at Master of Malt in the countdown to the big day, or Dadvent as we’re calling it, so keep an eye on the blog and the website – and do sign up to emails in the box at the bottom.

First up, we’re looking at whisky gift sets: a bottle of whisky plus something else like a handy glass, a washbag, or even a birdfeeder so you can feed the birds while enjoying your whisky. You know it makes sense. If you need more inspiration – go to our handy Father’s Day gift finder page.

Right, let’s get on with it…
