Philadelphia, PA - Searching for the perfect Father’s Day gift, how about getting dad actually what he actually wants this year - booze (and more) coming from some great local Philly purveyors.
Philly Father's Day Ideas
Art in the Age, Old City’s one-of-a-kind tasting room and bottle shop are honoring all fathers with a unique Smoked Whiskey Cocktail Workshop, in addition to providing excellent and enjoyable gifts, including the exclusive Eau De Musc, for the adventuresome dads.
Eau De Musc Whiskey
For that dad who has everything, how about a bottle of Eau De Musc (“Water of Musk”), a limited-edition beaver castoreum whiskey. Available in a fantastic, 200ml antique-style perfume bottle, Eau De Musc is remarkably pleasant and goes for $65 a bottle.
Smoked Whiskey Cocktail Workshop
Give dad a memorable experience at the Smoked Whiskey Cocktail Workshop. Attendees will uncover easy techniques for incorporating smoke flavor into their own favorite cocktails, with a demonstration and guidance from a cocktail specialist, Lee Noble. Cocktails include a Smoked Old Fashioned featuring Kinsey Bourbon and a Smoked Manhattan with Kinsey Rye Whiskey. Tickets are priced at $45 and come with two complimentary cocktails, Q&A about the history and trends of the cocktail world, a mixology presentation, and a hands-on drink-making workshop. The workshop starts at 6:30 pm. 116 N 3rd St. | 215.922.2600
Bluebird Distilling’s Straight Rye Whiskey
For dads who take pleasure in liquors of the brown persuasion, Bluebird Distilling’s Straight Rye Whiskey would be the perfect gift. This regionally produced, award-winning, grain-to-glass whiskey is readily available at The Bar by Bluebird Distilling at The Bourse, the retail store in The Shops at Liberty Place, and their own distillery in Phoenixville as 250 Fine Wine and Good Spirits stores. 111 S. Independence Mall | 1625 Chestnut St. | 100 Bridge St., Phoenixville
Philadelphia Brewing Company
For Dads who love craft beer, how about a trip to one of the region's great local breweries alongside their favorite kid. Immediately after a tour of the Philadelphia Brewing Company, dad can 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 unwind on Father’s Day, brew in hand. 2440 Frankford Ave | 215-427-2739
The Watch Company at The Shops at Liberty Place
