Last-Minute Spirit Brands To Cop For Dad On Father’s Day

Contrary to popular belief people lay down dollars for Father’s Day.

A running joke is that mothers get more love than fathers on their respective days.

Contrary to popular belief people lay down dollars for Father’s Day. A reported $22.4 billion is expected to be dished out for dad, according to the National Retail Federation. While that is almost $11 billion lower than spending for Mother’s Day, it’s still a grip.

Another widely held belief is Father’s Day gifts usually fall in the category of last-minute gifts. That might be up for question, but BLACK ENTERPRISE identified five spirit brands to grab for dad if you didn’t cop him something ahead of time. 

Uncle Nearest 

If whiskey is your father’s fav, check out Uncle Nearest’s line of ryes. The 1856 is premium-aged, the 1886 is a small batch, and the rye is a straight rye whiskey. The brand has cocktail kits that include mixers and bitters.
