Whether dad loves tequila or whiskey at the end of a long day, the best Father’s Day gifts are those that he can display long after the bottle is finished. These bottles contain some incredible wines and spirits that make great gifts, but are also artistic and meant to be displayed after the drinking is done!
Hennessy Paradis Impérial
This liquor comes in a gorgeous new crystal decanter by internationally acclaimed artist Arik Levy, which was designed for Paradis Impérial to celebrate precision in craftsmanship. Levy worked hand-in-hand with master crystal cutters to create a gem-like setting for the crown jewel of Hennessy’s rare collection. A contemporary and rare Cognac, Paradis Impérial defies preconceptions about old Cognacs with its pale color and very precise, non-traditional taste: the striking vessel by Levy balances curve and tension with a faceted design that captures subtle variations of lighting to enhance the blend’s coloration.

Monkey 47 Gin
Monkey 47 is a handcrafted gin made with 47 botanicals – more than any other gin – sourced from Germany’s Black Forest. The Monkey bottle represents the rebirth of an old pharmacy decanter – the brown pharmaceutical glass protects each bottle’s contents from the sun while the hand-drawn label is designed to resemble a stamp from the Victorian era. The corks that top every bottle are made exclusively from the highest-grade raw material, and a metal ring around the cork provides the finishing touch, engraved with the phrase “Ex Pluribus Unum,” meaning “Out of Many, One.”

Espolòn Tequila Añejo X
Each black glass bottle is handmade in Mexico and a proud tribute to the Mexican art form of the Barro Negro.

The six years of extra aging creates a tequila of rich, complex flavors and uncommon character. There’s only one Añejo X, and once the limited quantity is gone, it’s gone forever. This is the one you’ll want to save.
