Father's Day in the UK is celebrated on the third Sunday of June, which falls on the 16th this year. And here is the very first gift guide for Father's Day this year! This one features some fab edible gifts, from chocolates to tea and from superfoods to alcoholic beverages. Check it out!

Son of a Gun

Son of a Gun Whisky
Son of a Gun pays homage to Copper Rivet’s Kentish heritage on the river Medway in Chatham, a town in which Nelson’s Victory was built and countless warships and submarines. Son of a Gun is a grain whisky, made from malted and unmalted barley, and unmalted wheat and rye, grown for Copper Rivet Distillery on the Isle of Sheppey.

At 47.4% volume, Son of a Gun is impressively smooth and very drinkable. It is unusual and unique - there are hints of vanilla and tropical fruits. It tastes interesting! Both Mr.H and myself liked this. It makes for a perfect father's day gift for the dad who appreciates and enjoys a quality drink.

Here is one way to enjoy Son of a Gun.

Express oils from orange peel and coat rim of glass. Leave peel in the glass. Add sugar cube and soak in bitters. Add 3 cubes of ice and Son of a Gun, Stir again briefly.

Priced at £32.00 RRP for a 50cl bottle, you can order Son of a Gun from The distiller also offers guided tours where one can experience the entire distillation process from grain to glass. You can find more information about the tours (pricing, times, availability etc.) on the Copper Rivet Distillery website.
