June 3, 2021 – Let’s face it: we’ve all bought dad enough ties and socks to last a lifetime. This Father’s Day, give him the gift that never goes out of style – booze. We have rounded up some of the most unique gifts you can buy your father this year.
New Liberty Distillery, the South Kensington craft distillery and home to award-winning spirit lines such as the revived heritage Kinsey brand, as well as New Liberty Distillery original spirits, has the perfect Father’s Day gift for your old man, the Kinsey Spirit Trio.
This Kinsey Spirit Trio gift set contains three 375 mL bottles perfect for teaching an old dog even older tricks from Pennsylvania’s oldest whiskey brand. This Father’s Day, for $59.99, self-dubbed favorite children can treat Dad to three spirits that speak to the test of time: Kinsey Rye, Kinsey American, and Kinsey Bourbon.
Listed here are some details about each spirit:
KINSEY RYE — A blend of three different mash bills of rye whiskey: A surprisingly rounded sweetness for a rye, with dry spice, ripe starfruit, and melon on the palate, with a finish of pepper and molasses.
KINSEY AMERICAN –Blended to replicate the flavor profile of a 1940s/50s sample of Kinsey: Opens bright and vibrant on the palate, leading to floral, semi-sweet vanilla notes, and finishing with hints of honeycomb and caramel corn.
KINSEY BOURBON — A blend of two different bourbon mash bills: Warm and complex on the palate, with notes of honeysuckle, toffee, unripe orange, and grass, culminating in a sweet spice finish.
The Kinsey Spirit trio is available online to ship statewide in PA at New Liberty Distillery’s website, here. This boozy gift set is also available for purchase onsite at New Liberty Distillery in the South Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia.
