Essential Father’s Day Gifts For 2021

Celebrate every one of life’s many role models with unique and uncommon Father’s Day gifts delivered to their door.



From Dad to Grandpa, brothers and uncles, role models and father figures. The men in our lives are always there for support, lending words of wisdom and encouragement when we need them most. Each and every one of the great guys surrounding us deserve celebrating this Father’s Day. 

Even though we can all count on the men in our lives to be there for us when we need them, they’re a diverse bunch. Some of them like their drinks neat, some like it on the rocks, and some prefer an ornate cocktail. But the truth is, they all have one thing in common. They love when you pour it for them and they don’t need to move a muscle. 

Whether the men in your life want a little solitude or they prefer to raise a glass with the entire family on their special day, Spirit Hub has Father’s Day gifts to make sure their day is an uncommon pleasure. 

If he’s a Dad cocktail kind of guy or a whiskey purist, our list of Father’s Day gift ideas has the perfect presents, and potations, to fill his glass with when the third Sunday in June rolls around. 


Rye Whiskey by KOVAL Distillery in a Classic Sazerac


A little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, KOVAL Distillery’s small batch, single barrel Rye Whiskey has everything Dad wants from a rye. The Chicago-based distillery makes KOVAL Rye from 100% locally and sustainably sourced rye for a whiskey that’s light, fresh and mellow. Fill up his glass and watch him revel in the craft whiskey’s tones of Jamaican spice cake and creamy chai tea. 

But maybe he’s more of a Father’s Day cocktail kind of guy. If that’s the case, rinse his glass with a splash of Absinthe Le Bleu by Spirits of French Lick and make him a Sazerac. One of the oldest known American cocktails, the Sazerac has been a favorite since the 19th century! And it’s sure to put a smile on his face this Father’s Day.
