Did you know Frank Sinatra loved his Jack Daniels so much, he was buried with a bottle of Old No. 7? That's how passionately whiskey lovers feel about their favorite brown liquor. They know what they like, and more significantly, they know what they don't, which can make finding the best whiskey gifts hard.
In the same way not all scotch is created equal, a whiskey fan can be drawn to the “water of life” for many different reasons, and need their whiskey gifts to suit their preferences. Is their drinking style more midcentury New York chic, or rugged Old West cowboy? Do their lips stick to strictly Irish whiskeys, or do they have more of a globe-trotting palate?
If shopping for that whiskey-loving buddy has you over a barrel, we have you covered with 30 whiskey gifts that they'll actually use. From tools to refine their favorite cocktail to scented soaps and scrubs for sober hours, exploring centuries of whiskey history or unwinding at the end of a long day, there's something here for every barrel-aged aficionado.
