Father’s Day Food & Drink Gift Guide 2019
I hope my dad will be very happy this year, with plenty of
exciting options and potential gifts available. Whether you’ve got a dad who
loves a great snack or a slight tipple, I have the ultimate gift idea for this
Father’s Day, so read on for some inspiration
If he’s got a sweet tooth or an eye for something tasty
(which is virtually every dad that ever existed), then something edible might
be the best option.
Having just come back from the Cheese Rolling event, I can certainly
say I’m a big fan of cheese. So is my entire family and this definitely rings
true for my dad. A luxurious cheese is completely different to what you’ll get
in your average supermarket, the taste is absolutely scrumptious. I have to
offer a huge recommendation for the mouth-watering Snowdonia Cheese Company range.
This is a world apart from anything I’m used to, making me want to jump on a
train over to Wales.
They also come in very slick packaging, while the packaging can
include a freezer pack so if you get it delivered you don’t have to worry about
it going off. In the images I have both the black bomber extra mature cheddar
and the vintage red Leicester. It’s hard to pick a favourite as they both taste
so great, but I’d have to go for the red Leicester.
This isn’t just an idea for Mother’s Day, my dad is just as
big of a chocolate fiend. During younger years, milk chocolate was always a
winner, however as the taste buds mature it definitely switches to dark
chocolate, with a minimum of 80% cacao.
If this matches up with your taste buds then you might want
to check out Benefit Chocolate. However,
these aren’t just great tasting 85% cacao chocolate, no, these have something
different to offer. Their range includes Protein (19% plant based), vitamins
(12 key vitamins included) and Energy (with B vitamins and caffeine), all of
which are suitable for vegans.
Considering my parents are both now more conscious about
what they consume, this they can sneak into their diet with absolutely no issues,
the hardest part will be giving it without losing a finger.
I know my dad well, anything alcohol based and their will be a big smile on his face! But it is nice to buy something they wouldn’t normally get when on a special occasion, something a little fancy rather than a cheap bottle of prosecco from Tesco’s, so read on for some inspiration.
I’m sorry, what was that? Oh, a vodka that is made purely from milk, doesn’t give you a hangover and contains less sugar, yer that sounds pretty good! Black Cow has grown significantly since it hit the market seven years ago, being a favourite of Stephen Fry and Kate Beckinsale.
We’ve tried it, tested it, woken up fine after a great night! The taste is so smooth that you can actually sip it with ice (not that I recommend that unless you plan on getting a little too tipsy).
Sure, you can grab any old bottle, but I want to talk about
something a little exciting, Apothic
Inferno. This Californian red wine isn’t your usual bottle, it has been
aged in whiskey barrels for 2 months, creating a completely new flavour,
something they are building a huge reputation for.
This is a fiery red blend that brings a unique taste
experience to wine and whiskey fans alike, inspired by the time-honoured craft
of whiskey-making. Filled with flavours of maple, vanilla and charred spice,
this wine is perfect to enjoy with succulent meats or indulgent chocolate
desserts. You can find this gorgeous wine stocked in Sainsbury’s for £13.
The growth in popularity of gin has been simply remarkable,
with a number of great brands introducing various different flavours containing
different botanicals to offer something unique. One I’d love to push is the Hedgepig range, specifically the zesty
elderflower. The drink is 29.8% and uses English homegrown and local wild
elderflower, so you can worry less about your carbon footprint while also
helping a local business.
If elderflower doesn’t sound quite right for your dad, you have the choice of glorious gooseberry, wild bullace & quince and Cambridge gage. Or you could also go for their other Cambridge based gin Pinkster, which contains real raspberries.
