Best Bottles of Whiskey to Give as Gifts

Does the whiskey fan in your life have a birthday or wedding on the horizon? Determining which bottle to gift can be a difficult task. The biggest consideration is taste, but the price point of some whiskeys may put their flavor beyond your budget. For those looking to save money and still purchase a rich, smooth whiskey, brands that use the Infusion Spiral may offer the perfect solution.

Expensive Whiskey Gifts

Due to the time needed to store the barrels while they age, high-end, elegant whiskeys are quite the investment. If you’re looking to make an impression, there are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to expensive whiskeys.

The Macallan 25 Year Old Sherry Oak aged single malt scotch is one such whiskey that requires a splurge, with its price set around $3,000. With notes of dried fruit, oak, and cinnamon, the flavor—and the price—is indulgent, making it a memorable gift.

We don’t blame you if you’re not willing to spend thousands of dollars on gifted whiskey. However, if your heart is set on Macallan, try the Macallan 12 Year Sherry Oak. At its price point, you could buy over 30 bottles for the same cost as one bottle of Macallan 25.

Cost-Effective Whiskey Gifts

With the Infusion Spiral, distillers have a new way of infusing wood flavor into their whiskey. This means that the smooth taste of aged whiskey doesn’t always have to be labeled with an exorbitant price tag—if you know what to look for.

Searching for Whiskey Gifts

While searching for the perfect bottle for your birthday or wedding whiskey gift, look for brands that use the wood spiral infusion method. Because the Infusion Spiral technology reduces the aging time, these bottles will likely be less expensive without compromising the full, rich flavor of barrel-aged whiskeys.

Choosing a whiskey that utilizes the Infusion Spiral method will offer the notes you’re looking at a reasonable price. Some of our favorites include Defiant Whisky and Thirteenth’s Colony’s Southern Rye.
