Gift Ideas For The Scotch-Obsessed

If you have a Scotch lover in your life you probably want to get them something special to go along with that bottle of Scotch. But what do you get for the Scotch-obsessed that will truly impress them?

Don’t you worry, we have the perfect solution for you. Let’s sift through our treasure chest and boil everything down to six cool gift ideas.

1. Flaviar Membership

Flaviar Membership

Regular gifts won't cut it. Instead, give the gift that keeps on giving! Show them you care in the best way possible: with delicious booze!

By giving a Flaviar Membership, the Scotch lover will expand their horizons through tasting and discovery of different Scotch Whiskies (and other Spirits) through deliveries of tasting boxes and full-size bottles, access to members-only tasting events, and lots of other goodies!

Your gift also comes with access to our private bottlings and special releases such as Deer, Bear & Moose Whisky. And because even the rarest Whiskies deserve to be tasted... and shared, once a month we open The Vault, a selection of ultra-rare collector’s products.

Bonding with Flaviar Membership

Not to mention the vibrant community, superb knowledge base, generous referral perks, and personal recommendations. We're not sure how you'll outdo yourself next time though.

Noobs or pros, Flaviaristas also learn new stuff through tasting and content such as on-demand guided tastings, educating videos, in-depth articles, the School of Spirits, and so on. Gift him a flavorful journey into the World of Fine Spirits.

2. Flaviar Advent Calendar

3. Flaviar Merch

Flaviar Flask

Elevate the Spirits game with some trendy Flaviar merch. From socks, shirts, and sweaters to cool flasks and a full-blown home bar that you can personalize with the recipient's name, make sure their Whiskey game is always on point.

When you get a new bottle of their favorite poison, they will also need a cool vessel to pour it in, and a classy envy-inducing coaster, right?

Flaviar Glencairn glasses & coasters

Meet the Flaviar-branded Glencairn tasting glass, used in all serious distillery labs. It’s a must-have for any malt head as it enhances the sipping experience by amplifying the color, capturing the treasured scents, and keeping the flavors pure. You can get a four-pack or a lovely duo. Every glass is branded with a Flaviar dove.

Then, there are coasters. A pack of high-quality renegade leather/concrete coasters, each stamped with a Flaviar emblem, is an unexpected and out-of-the-box holiday gift every booze aficionado will appreciate. Hell, get yourself a pack, too!

4. Son of a Peat Batch 03 The Redeemer

Son of a Peat Batch 03 The Redeemer

The third act of Flaviar’s own peated Blended Malt: Son of a Peat Batch 03 is here to save your Scotch lover from smooth and run-of-the-still Whiskies.

The twelvefold blend combines Scotches from Islay, Speyside, the Islands, and the Highlands to bring authentic smoky action, guns ablaze.

The Redeemer, the original peat monster

Cask strength, peaty as hell, and no-nonsense character. It's as authentic as they come. No fake-ass color either; it’s non-chill-filtered, hand-blended, hand-bottled, hand-sealed, and hand-labeled.

Not only is Son of a Peat III the Member's favorite, but it also won a Gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition 2021.

Category: Scotch
Country: Scotland
Region: Islay, Islands, Highland, Speyside
Distillery: Non disclosed
Age: Up to 20 Year Old
Style: Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Alcohol: 53.8%

“Smokey and delightful! Anyone writing a bad review on this one needs some hair on their chest. Quite literally my favorite whiskey I've ever tried. It's oaky, smokey and crisp with a long finish. Strong peat smell and flavor. I found myself enjoying the smell a lot too. Pairs well with a cigar.” - Brandon

5. Scotch Tasting Box

Scotch tasting box

Scotch tasting box is a perfect fit for both beginners and veterans of taste. You can always buy one for yourself as well and set up a drinking party.

Now, suppose your gift recipient would like to join fellow Spirits aficionados and a tasting expert in exploring the box. In that case, there’s an ongoing Flaviar series of guided tastings called Unboxing Flavors.

With a live spirited debate or on-demand guided tasting, your loved one will learn how to taste all the layers and nuances in aromas and flavors, hear surprising histories and the secret trivia behind the unique flavors hidden in his Tasting Box.

We promise: these Scotch Tasting Boxes make a great impression. Remember: Tasting is Believing!

6. The Classic Gift: A Bottle of Top-notch Scotch

A bottle of booze is a staple of gifts since 1388 (give or take a year) and it’s a safe bet for any friend that’s not a teetotaler. We compiled a helpful holiday selection of you-can’t-go-wrong bottles, just for you.
