Dads may love whiskey. But not every whiskey is perfect for every dad. Here, eight different and amazing whiskies for eight different and amazing types of dads, from a tie-dye–wearing free spirit to an ascot-sporting gentleman.
Hippie Dad: Corsair Quinoa Whiskey
If your Birkenstock-loving dad can’t get enough of the alternative grain in salads, soups and sliders, give him a bottle of Corsair’s earthy, nutty, lightly peppery whiskey distilled from quinoa and malted barley ($60).
Wine Lover Dad: Hooker’s House Bourbon
Oenophile fathers will appreciate this Kentucky-made, Sonoma Valley-finished bourbon. Aged in Pinot Noir barrels from Sonoma’s Schug Winery, the rich whiskey has a fruity, definitely wine-y nose and finishes with notes of dark berries. This bottle would also make a good gift for the bawdy dad, not only because of the name but because of the label, which features a silhouetted pair of a woman’s legs ($37).
