Martin Miller’s Gin:
Ultrapremium Gin

Martin Miller, a Londoner, was unhappy with the premium gins available to him, and set out to create a gin to meet his high standards. If you’re used to Bombay Sapphire, be prepared for something completely different: Martin Miller’s distinct flavor profile deserves a shout out. It’s so good, we drink it straight up. Read our full review of Martin Miller’s Gin.

Rogue Spirits:
Spruce Gin

The folks at Oregon’s Rogue Spirits have a totally different calling: to make “rogue” spirits that deliberately taste like nothing else in the category. Whether it’s their Spruce Gin (yes, you can taste the spruce, and it won a Bronze medal at the 2007 World Spirits Competition, the only American-made gin to win an award) or the Hazelnut Spice Rum (shown at right), you can guarantee that Dad will recognize that this is not just another bottle off the liquor store shelves. The company also makes a white rum and a dark rum.

Wattwiller Mineral Water:
An Ancient Libation


The Romans who occupied Gaul (now Alsace) wrote about the wonderful water of the village of Wattwiller. Almost as if by magic, two separate springs provide two fairly different waters: One produces only still mineral water and one produces a mineral water which has a natural carbonation. If Dad needs more hydration—or a great no-calorie gift—send him a case. Read our full review of Wattwiller mineral water.

Candy & Chocolate

 

Brown Paper Chocolates:
Cubes Of Serious Chocolate

Variously filled with liqueurs, fruits, nuts and herb, these gourmet creations are not chocolate bars, but chunks of chocolate that you slice by the piece. They aren’t fudge, but melt in your mouth like fudge. Great with a glass of wine or with espresso or cognac after dinner, Dad will love a sampling of the dozen or so flavors. In dark, milk or white chocolate. Read our full review of Brown Paper Chocolates.

Heritage Foods USA:
Four Breed Burger Package

 

Imagine a feast of four great burgers: Elk is the leanest, Piedmontese is the leanest of the beef; bison is high in omega-3 essential acids, wagyu (“Kobe”*) is the heartiest. Elk and Piedmontese make 2 patties/pound, bison and wagyu yield 3 patties/pound. Heritage Foods USA is a company that is dedicated to saving our heritage foods, including breeds of food livestock that would easily become extinct but for the dedication of a few family farmers, who needed a marketing arm (Heritage Foods USA) to promote their products to the public. They sell not only rare beef varieties, but pigs, sheep, fish, poultry, grains and other foods.

The Jerky Guy:
Gourmet Jerky


It Dad likes to snack, gourmet jerky is the new hot snack. Forget that stuff from the convenience store—The Jerky Guy makes tender, moist jerky bites from top round beef, slow smoked over real wood chips (not “liquid smoke”). It’s 98% fat free with no additives or preservatives, and tastes great with a cold beer. In Teriyaki, spicy Black Pepper, and hot Helluvapeño.

  • 4-Ounce Bag
