Latest News - Whisky industry - A whisky for every Dad this Fathers’ Day - 16th June, 2009

A wide selection of whiskies available from Edrington Group for Fathers' Day on the 21st June 2009

Whether your Dad is a whisky connoisseur or newcomer to ‘the water of life’, this menu of award winning whiskies will ensure you choose something special to make him smile on 21 June.

Make your Dad famous this Fathers Day with a personalised bottle of The Famous Grouse, Scotland’s favourite whisky.  Personalise the label on the front with ‘Dad’ or your Dad’s name and a special message on the reverse. 

The Famous Grouse is a blend of award-winning single malts, including The Macallan and Highland Park, combined with subtle favours of finest grain whiskies to create a blend of the smoothest character (Special Label RRP £19.99, www.thefamousgrouse.com)

The Black Grouse is a blend of The Famous Grouse with added Islay malts and has a rich, smoky, peaty flavour with a sweet finish.  In a unique partnership with the RSPB, 50 pence will go directly to the charity with every bottle sold, helping to fund urgently required conservation work in Scotland, England and Wales.  The perfect gift for a bird loving Dad (RRP £18.99).

Highland Park 12 year old is lauded as “the greatest all rounder in the world of malt whisky”1 with its smooth rounded smokey sweetness. This award winning Orcadian malt is the perfect tipple for Dad to relax with. (RRP £27.99, www.highlandpark.co.uk).

Balanced with oak and fruit flavours and hints of fruit and heather honey, the soft and malty The Macallan Fine Oak 10 years old makes an ideal introduction to the range (RRP £26.69, www.themacallan.com). The award winning Fine Oak range was heralded to be “by far the best range of non-vintage whiskies to be launched by any one distillery for possibly the last decade.”2

Laden with notes of ripe fruits, citrus, vanilla and hints of spice, The Glenrothes Select Reserve typifies the Speyside distillery house style.  A vatting of casks distilled in different years, Select Reserve is presented in the iconic Glenrothes bottle and is the very essence of The Glenrothes range (RRP £31.99, www.theglenrothes.com)

For the ultimate indulgence, Highland Park 40 year old has the wow factor and is described by whisky expert, Dave Broom, as “A stunningly great whisky.  One of the finest I’ve had for a considerable time.”3 It is the oldest expression in Highland Park’s portfolio and unusually for such an aged whisky it is a permanent fixture in the range.  It holds a beautiful balance of sweet toffee notes, dark chocolate, black cherries, honey, sun dried orange zest and   aromatic heather (RRP £899, www.highlandpark.co.uk).

For a one-off collectors’ item, The Macallan Masters of Photography Rankin Limited Edition bottle makes a truly special gift.  The Macallan partnered with iconic photographer Rankin, to create 1,000 unique, individual works of art featuring the Speyside distillery and Rankin’s muse Tuuli.  The Fine Oak 30 years old single malt Scotch whisky comes presented in a black leather box with silver tooling, containing an original Rankin Polaroid and a booklet signed by Rankin, certifying it as an original. The bespoke label is in black and silver livery which matches the Polaroid contained within the box (RRP £899, www.themacallan.com).
