Contains items gifted for inclusion
Father’s Day is fast approaching and if you can’t physically see your dad or father figure then you’ll need to get their gift delivered.
You might not be able to visit your father figure this Father’s Day but you can send them something to let them know you’re thinking of them. If you need a little bit of inspiration then look no further; there is something to suit every taste and pocket (I hope)…

For the drink lover on Father’s Day
Where is all the rum?
Goslings Black Seal Rum is made from a 150-year-old Gosling family recipe, uses the finest distillates aged in charred American oak casks. The smooth, full flavor is the result of a careful blend of aged pot still and continuous still distillates. Black Seal Rum is the key ingredient in Bermuda’s National Drink – the Dark ‘n Stormy®. Goslings’ trademarked cocktail, a delicious mix of Black Seal Rum and Goslings Stormy Ginger Beer, appears like a storm cloud in a glass and evokes the mystique of Bermuda – I can highly recommend.

Presented in a stylish, wax-dipped, bottle, Oxford Rye Organic Vodka is a double-gold medal winning spirit from the heart of ‘the city of dreaming spires’.
No pesticides or herbicides are used and the distillery’s farmers embrace ancient, gentler, methods of land management – such as using clover to suppress weeds and sequester carbon, while avoiding the destructive effect of ploughing a field*. By working naturally with the land and soil, biodiversity is massively boosted, contributing to an abundance of wildflowers, insects and birds across all the fields.
Oxford Rye Organic Vodka is best enjoyed as a sipping vodka, either at room temperature or chilled. Alternatively, when combined with a Sicilian bitter tonic and ice, it makes for an exceptionally refreshing long drink. £34.95 RPP/70cl. Stockists: Master of Malt, 31 Dover, The Whisky Exchange and theoxfordartisandistillery.com
