Willett Bourbon on the Rocks
Gift Includes: Willett Pot Still + 6 uncut rocks glasses + 2 in ice cube tray ($100)
Willett, a family-owned distillery with a tradition dating back as late as 1666, reopened their doors in 2012 to the delight of the spirits world. Debuting a series of rich, dynamic whiskeys, their commitment to quality is evident in this delicious Bourbon, carefully made using a pot still. Its elegant bottle shaped like the still in which it was made echoes the beautiful nuances of the spirit. Smooth and buttery, with hints of baking spice, citrus and caramel. Best served in a rocks glass with one large ice cube, and thankfully, Merchants of Beverage has got that covered for Dad too.
Westland Whiskey Collection:
Gift Includes: Westland single malt Bourbon, Westland peated single malt, westland sherry finish ($275)
The Westland Distillery has been family-run since its inception in 2010. Everything, even the barrels they use, is made in the Pacific Northwest, and the whiskey itself is distilled in Seattle, and aged in the Washington rainforest. The coastal air and humidity make for ideal maturation conditions not unlike the shores of Scotland. Give Dad the chance to explore all three of these rugged yet refined offerings from Westland in one delectable collection!
Vodka martini + stirred kit
Gift Includes: Corbin vodka, Dolin dry vermouth, yarai mixing glass, barspoon, jigger, strainer ($140)
The Martini is one of the most evocative, distinctive mainstays on the menu – ordering one instantly gives its drinker an air of confidence and mystery. While this may seem to be due to the strength of the cocktail and the steady hand it takes to sip it, a look through the history of the Martini indicates that perhaps the unknown origin of the drink has lead to what has been made and remade with no one true recipe. With this upgraded Martini pack, we not only provide the bottles you need to mix one of your own, but also the bartools. Time to get to work on perfecting that stir!
Ultimate old fashioned
Gift Includes: 6 kiruto glasses, willett 2 yr rye, bitter truth aromatic bitters, regans orange bitters, jigger, spoon ($150)
There is no way to get closer to the definition of the word “cocktail” than the Old-Fashioned in its purest form. According to Robert Simonsen, drinks writer for the New York Times and author of “The Old-Fashioned,” the earliest definition described “a stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water, and bitters.” Suffice it to say that the Old-Fashioned is considered by many to be THE whiskey cocktail; and this kit gives you everything you need – including the bar tools – to perfect yours at home.
Gift Includes: calle 23, nola coffee, pierre ferrand curacao, regans orange – ($140)
This delicious pick-me-up is what we like to call the “Not So Secret Breakfast.” There’s no better way to start your day than with the awakening effects of coffee – or, rather, St. George’s NOLA coffee liqueur – orange juice – we prefer curacao and Regan’s orange bitters – and agave.
The Merchants of Beverage bartenders were inspired by The Revolver cocktail, an original from Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco, to create a south of the border version substituting tequila for Bulleit bourbon.
–The butterscotch and vanilla notes from the oak barrel aging in this añejo interplay perfectly with the robust coffee and chicory flavors in St. George’s NOLA coffee liqueur.
— Dry curacao and orange bitters accentuate the bright citrus notes that subtly characterize both the coffee and the tequila to provide unity, structure and balance.
— Finally, the flamed orange peel – if you can manage it – brings this Pistola into the territory of a smoking gun.
Ultimate Bar Collection
Gift Includes: Bitter Truth travelers kit, Del Maguey Tepextate, Excellia Tequila, Whistlepig Boss Hog Whiskey, Nikka 17 yr Whisky, Willett Whiskey, Regans Orange Bitters, Bitter Truth aromatic, The PDT Cocktail Book, Juniper Gin, Campari, Carpano Antica, Averna, Westland, Spirit Works Vodka, Clement Jon One Rhum, Small St George Absinthe, Small Dolin Dry Vermouth, From Cocktail Kingdom: a mixing glass, barspoon, strainer, tongs, jigger, green ice cube tray, blue ice cube tray – ($1100)
(Holy cow!! This is some kind of wonderful.. gift!)
For the Dad who truly deserves an amazing gift this year, there is nothing better to celebrate him than with the Ultimate Bar Collection from Merchants of Beverage. A hyper curated selection of some of the world’s best products, you will never find a bar collection quite like this. There are endless cocktail creations you can make from each of the spirits in the collection, from Sazeracs to Highballs to Daiquiris and even a Rum Caipirinha. Exquisite sipping spirits alongside classic liqueurs; gorgeous barware and versatile bitters all come together in harmony in this impressive collection for Dad.
Irish Whiskey Trio
Gift Includes: Tyrconnell single malt 10 yr madeira finish, Redbreast 12 year, Mosswood sherry barrel aged irish whiskey – $275
This collection showcases three wonderful and diverse Irish whiskeys. Each one has its own character and flavor profile to round out a collection ideal for hosting a tasting (with or without guests in attendance). You can taste the anchoring thread of classic gentleness and light sweetness in all three of these whiskeys, and then further delve into the flavors to reveal each individual style. It’s quite a treat for Dad!
Dunn 2000 with Zalto Stemware
Gift Includes: Dunn cabernet sauvignon 2000 with 2 zalto bordeaux glasses – ($270)
The Dunn family has been running a winery on Howell Mountain in St. Helena since 1979 with a sharp focus on cabernet sauvignon. They have a wonderful approach to striking a balance between the vineyards they’ve planted and the native vegetation in the area; in 2004 they purchased 64 neighboring acres of land and then promptly donated it to the Napa Valley Land Trust. Their respect for the terroir carries through to the beauty of this perfectly balanced wine. Aromas of blackcurrant, violets, mocha, and granite blend beautifully on the nose. The palate is smooth and sophisticated, with ripe blackberry and spice giving way to a round mouthfeel with a touch of eucalyptus on the finish. Two elegant Zalto glasses makes this the ideal collection to share with someone special, like Dad.
This is but a small sampling of great gifts for dads on Father’s Day! I would highly suggest you browse through the site and find something fabulous for Dad (and yourselves) to share! I will round out Fourth of July celebrations with more kits from Merchants of Beverage!
