Top 10 Gifts for Whisky Lovers

Looking for birthday gift ideas? Got a housewarming or wedding to attend? Don’t want to show up empty-handed to Thanksgiving dinner?

Whether you have a special occasion coming up or you’re getting a head start on holiday shopping (no judgement), we like to help. “What’s a good gift idea for a whisky lover?” is a question that gets asked a lot. So we put together a list of what we think are the best gifts for the whisky lover in your life.

10. Books about whisky

If a whisky lover can’t enjoy their favourite drink on the bus/train ride home (or maybe they can, see number 4), they can at least read about it. There are plenty of great books that cover more than just the basics, including the annual guides that point the way to some of the world’s best bottles. A photo-heavy book can also add an extra touch of class to a bar or coffee table.

9. Whisky stones

Glass of whisky with whiskey stonesDon’t want to use ice to chill a whisky? Then whisky stones are the way to go.
These are typically made of soapstone that will absorb heat without diluting the spirit. Just pop them in the freezer for a few hours before use and you’re set. You can even find personalized ones.

8. Ice moulds

Plenty of drinkers opt for ice to cut the intensity or keep it chilled for a slow sip. Specialty moulds make it easy to create those jumbo spheres that melt at a slower rate. And some more unconventional ice moulds can instantly add fun to your glass. Why settle for a boring cube when you can have an ice skull, Lego bricks or even the Death Star?

7. Hot toddy glasses

Winter is coming and that means hot drinks on cold nights. And there’s something magical about the soothing mix of honey, lemon and a little bit of whisky that makes us feel better when we’re fighting a cold. That’s why a pair of hot toddy glasses (and maybe a cozy blanket too) is the perfect winter gift for whisky lovers.

6. Flask

Stainless steel flask from Urban BarrelFor those occasions when you want to take your favourite drink with you to your next adventure, a personal flask is the way to go. In fact, check out the Urban Barrel Personalized Flask in our Barrel Shop – it’s an easy add-on that will take care of at least two gifts in one order.

This is an awesome gift idea! I’ve aged a few things in these barrels! My favourite was The Bitter End, which was my play on the classic Negroni. The barrels really do wonders!

Have my own Urban Barrel. Works great in giving spirits fuller flavour. You decide on how much body to give your spirit.

Jeff and Urban Barrel are the real deal. The Barrels are amazing and crafted and branded to your company. I love it as a client gift as it is personal, professional and classy. The age old Whiskey barrels are filled with the finest whiskey and will not disappoint. I would highly recommend Jeff and Urban Barrel to everyone looking for the finest whiskey and barrels. Jeff sponsors my charity golf tournament every year and he is the most popular hole for some reason!! Thanks Jeff
