What to get Dad this Father’s Day

May 30, 2019 – Looking for Father’s Day inspiration? Check out the great Philly gift options below featuring what all dads really want – booze (and more) from local Philly purveyors.

. . . . . . . . . . . .

Art in the Age, Old City’s one-of-a-kind tasting room, home bar supply and bottle shop, is celebrating Father’s Day with an exclusive Smoked Whiskey Cocktail Workshop, as well as offering unique and interesting gifts, such as the exclusive Eau De Musc, for adventurous dads.

  • For the dad that has everything, only a few bottles are left of Eau De Musc (“Water of Musk”), a limited-edition beaver castoreum whiskey from the branding mastermind of Hendrick’s Gin. Eau de Musc is an 88-proof straight bourbon whiskey infused with the oil found in the beaver castor sacs below the tail. Sold in an elegant, 200ml vintage-style perfume bottle, Eau De Musc is surprisingly pleasant and goes for $65 a bottle.
  • Give dad an unforgettable experience at the Smoked Whiskey Cocktail Workshop. Guests will learn easy techniques for adding smoke flavor to their favorite cocktails, with a demonstration and instructions by cocktail specialist, Lee Noble. Cocktails include a Smoked Old Fashioned with Kinsey Bourbon and a Smoked Manhattan with Kinsey Rye Whiskey. Tickets cost $45 and include two cocktails, Q&A about the history and trends of the cocktail world, a mixology demonstration, and a hands-on drink-making workshop. The workshop starts at 6:30 pm. Recipes below!

Dads who like beer can enjoy a great local brew with their soon-to-be favorite kid after they stop by Philadelphia Brewing Company and pick up a case of crisp and refreshing Kenzigner, a case of not-so-average Joe Coffee Porter, or a case of the latest seasonal release, such as the spring favorite Fleur de Lehigh, each at $30 a case. Paired with a set of Philadelphia Brewing Company pint glasses ($3 each), and Philadelphia Brewing Company t-shirt ($15), any dad would be happy to crack open a cold one with their kid and relax on Father’s Day, brew in hand.
