Spirits With Smoke: Smoking Saucer
At Spirits with Smoke, we are all about people creating great, memorable experiences through great smoked cocktails. Smoking influences any cocktail’s flavour, aroma, and appearance, elevating a simple drink to something extraordinary. The Smoking Saucer Set is unique in that instead of rising smoke, the smoke falls on the surface of the cocktail, creating a striking and visual eerie lake effect. A gift your dad will want to show off and take with him everywhere he goes.

Lazerly: Map Coasters
Every good cocktail needs a good coaster to rest on. Why settle for a boring, plain coaster when you can have one designed with meaning? This custom set of Map Coasters from Lazerly comes laser engraved with up to four cities of your choice. Pick places meaningful to your dad, like where he grew up or his favourite fishing spot! He’ll be blown away by the attention to detail (both on the coasters and in your gift shopping!) and will be eager to show them off at his next dinner party.
Swanky Badger: Classic Whiskey Decanter
Help your dad elevate their drinking experience with a high-quality engraved whiskey decanter. The Classic Whiskey Decanter by The Swanky Badger lets you personalize your gift with a meaningful message that your dad will be sure to love. Not only that, but Swanky Badger commits to donating a portion of every sale to Children’s hospitals across the country. A gift your dad will be proud to show off on his home bar.
Black Cloud Bitters
No home bar set-up is complete without a set of cocktail bitters that pack a punch of flavour. Black Cloud Bitters is hands down a winner. Not synthetic like other bitter brands, Black Cloud is alcohol-based, which gives these flavouring agents a pure, unfiltered flavour. Black Cloud also produces eight bitters flavours ranging from savoury and aromatic to fruity and woodsy. Perfect for the dad who likes to experiment with his cocktails!
Cocktail Book: The Craft of the Cocktail
The Craft of the Cocktail: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Master Bartender – a title that says it all.

Going beyond simply providing recipe directions, The Craft of the Cocktail delves deep into the history of cocktail lore, the dos and do nots of cocktail technique and how to have the best bar set up possible. It is a must-have for any home bartender and the perfect gift for any dad looking to improve their craft.
OnTheRocks: Spherical Clear Ice Moulds
Sometimes, freezer ice just doesn’t cut it. It can be cloudy, melt too fast, and even hold on to that smelly freezer odour. But don’t worry, that’s where OnTheRocks comes in. Their spherical or cubed ice moulds make it easy to create beautifully clear ice at home – free from air bubbles, minerals, and impurities.
GemshoGlass: Glass Golf Ball Whiskey Chillers
For both the golf lover AND the whiskey drinker, look no further than these high-quality whiskey chillers and glasses from GemshoGlass. Shaped like glass-dimpled golf balls, these whiskey chillers are stunning.
