And totally gender neutral


It happened two weeks ago, as I was going through some online articles to find gift ideas for my close ones. Between two recipes for the ultimate eggnog and some tips on how not to go insane at your office party, I ended up reading many pieces on how to find “the perfect gift for the man in your life.” I obviously don’t see anything wrong about wanting to spoil your significant other, but I get a little bit irritated when most of the suggestions include stuff that I would totally buy for myself. I mean, you don’t have to be a man to treat yourself over some delicious whisky or rum, right? I also know for a fact that the most manly guys I know are perfectly fine with enjoying a yummy Pina colada from time to time. Booze doesn’t care about which gender you are, because all it wants is to be enjoyed with the right amount of pleasure. In that spirit (no pun intended here, I swear), I put together a revised gift guide for all the spirits-lovers out there.


Glenmorangie Signet

This scotch is distilled from malt with a good portion of chocolate malt too and is my absolute favorite when I am looking for a whisky on the sweeter side.

Buy it here.

Plantation Rum

Introduced to mark the 20th anniversary of Maison Ferrand and made with an assemblage of fine rums 12 – 20 years old, all originating in Barbados, this spirit will definitely turn you into a rum lover.

Canadian Whisky

Dewar’s 12 yr

This classic blended whisky on a the fruity side, with notes of vanilla, caramel, and raisin, works as a perfect introduction for new whisky lovers.

Ardbeg Corryvreckan

My Christmas gift from me to me, with all my love, this scotch is a pure dream of smokiness – peaty, herbal, and almost buttery – and something that you have to taste at least once in your life. I swear.

Buy it here.

Whisky Glasses

Buy it here.

Four Pillars

This is a mix of some local botanicals (Tasmanian pepperberry and lemon myrtle), some exotic botanicals (cinnamon, cardamom, coriander seeds, and star anise), and some classic botanicals (juniper, lavender, and angelica root), as well as whole oranges.
