Whisk-ey your Dad off his feet this Father's Day

This Father's Day, Boann Distillery has two exceptional gift options that will delight any whiskey enthusiast, whether your Dad is a sentimentalist or a splurger. In addition, they have some delicious cocktail ideas if you want to go that extra mile. 


The cleverly named P.X. I Love You Single Malt whiskey from Boann’s award-winning Whistler range offers a distinctive and quirky way to express your love this Sunday. Priced at €59.50, the whiskey gets its name from the Spanish Pedro Ximenez (PX) sherry casks in which it is aged for nine months. Crafted from 100% malted barley, this whiskey boasts delightful notes of sherry, dried fruits and brown sugar.


For those willing to push the boat out, Boann presents a limited-edition whiskey and wine duo.

This exclusive set features a rare 21-year-old Single Malt Irish whiskey paired with a 20-year-old Madeira Single Cask wine. This collector's item is the result of a unique collaboration between Ireland’s Boann Distillery and Portugal’s renowned winery Justino’s Madeira. Presented in a beautiful wooden box and accompanied by a booklet narrating the story of both the whiskey and wine, the 2 x 500ml pack is priced at €1,000.


All these whiskies can be ordered from Boann Distillery's website at boanndistillery.ie
