Father’s Day Drinks Gift Guide
Dads, generally, never ask for much. They sacrifice a lot, work tirelessly and ensure that we have the opportunities that they never had. Once a year, we dedicate a special day to celebrate our doting dads with love and affection.
This year has been tough and we all, especially our dads, can use some #metime. That is why celebrating Father’s Day this year with some drinks and a nice movie at home can be one of the best ideas!
Here are some refreshing drink ideas for this father’s day. From high-end sparkling wine, to value-for-money bundles and even non-alcoholic spirits, there’s something to suit every taste.
Nyetimber is England’s leading producer of English Sparkling Wine, and 1086, their Prestige Cuvee, is a result of over a decade of planning and ageing and is made from a precious selection of over 90 exceptional wine parcels.
1086 is produced entirely from 100% estate-grown fruit, with a parcel-by-parcel selection from the greensand soils of West Sussex, and would make a decadent Father’s Day gift to be enjoyed at home.
Nyetimber 1086 is available to purchase online in Singapore at Analogue Wine Merchants and is priced at S$400.
Angra Wines & Spirits
In celebration of oenophile Fathers and families across Singapore, ANGRA Wine & Spirit have curated three exclusive bundles of wine, designed to pair with personalities.
Available to purchase online for a limited time only, the Sommelier-approved selections have been created especially for Father’s Day, playfully encouraging shoppers to match their dads with one of three wine-associated traits, before gifting him a selection of bottles to try at home.
- Refined S$398 (reduced from S$492): Appealing to elegant, gentlemanly types, the REFINED bundle features a selection of red and white wine, including Billecart Salmon Brut Reserve; the ideal partner for every occasion. Also featured is Sebastien Dampt Chablis 2017 – Sébastien is a rising star of Chablis, and is part of a dynasty that has been making wine in the region for over 150 years – and a range of new and old-world reds, such as the full-bodied Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino 2014.
- Brilliant S$288 (reduced from S$319): BRILLIANT wines for brilliant dads; this bundle features five of Angra’s top Italian picks, including the decisive, full-bodied La Tunella Pinot Grigio 2018 and the easy, fresh Zardetto Molin Prosecco Superiore DOCG, which has a salty, round and lively structure. Also included is Arlequin Shiraz 2016, which is full flavoured and luscious, depicting berries and black pepper, and will live for many years.
- Lively S$198 (reduced from S$255): Much like a LIVELY wine, refreshing, surprising flavours are a key component of this bundle. Whilst Tomero Malbec 2017 boasts a fresh entry and a bright, juicy mouthfeel, followed by a full and spicy finish, Zardetto Porta Monticano Extra Dry NV is smooth, yet dry, with fresh aromatic quality and fruity aromas.
Many years in the making, Lyre’s is a range of 13 different spirits – the American Malt would be the perfect non-alcoholic Father’s Day gift, as it looks, tastes and sashays around the palate just like the original alcoholic version.
Australian-based Lyre’s sources the finest all-natural essences, extracts and distillates from the four corners of the globe to craft spirits that to pay homage to the flavours of the world’s most time tested cocktails.
