Public Service Announcement: Father’s Day is less than a month away. Prepare to usurp your siblings by the time Sunday, 3 September rolls around with these five gift ideas.
Malt Traders focus on unique and sustainable small parcel and craft beverages. Their boutique range of whisky, gin, wine and beer will help you look like the ever-so-thoughtful gift giver that you are!
For the whisky-drinking Dad… a Denver & Liely Whisky Glass
The hand-blown shape of the Denver & Liely Whisky Glass combines the benefits of taste and smell associated with a traditional Whisky snifter with the versatility and style of a classic tumbler. The wide base maximises the surface area of a standard measure, funnelling the aromas through the tapered body to the optimally sized opening. This reveals the Whisky’s full character, allowing your Dad to truly explore the depths of his favourite drop.
For the health-conscious Dad… Samuel Smith Old Brewery beers
We hate to break it to you, but beer is not a health food. Nor is it a health drink. Nor could it be described as a health tonic. However, it could be argued that beer by Samuel Smith Old Brewery is as healthy as beer can be. The Samuel Smith selection available at Malt Traders is 100% organic and vegan and contains no chemical additives, raw material adjuncts, artificial sweeteners, colourings, flavourings or preservatives. Fun fact: The original well at The Old Brewery, sunk in 1758, is still in use. The brewing water is drawn from 85 feet underground.
For the wine-obsessed Dad… Torbreck Wines
Guard your Dad’s antioxidant levels by asking Malt Traders about their selection of Torbreck wines. Torbreck pays homage to the vineyards of the Barossa Valley, which is home to some of the oldest vines on the planet. Ask the Malt Traders team to walk you through the different varieties available.
For the high-spirited Dad… a bottle of Kalki Moon gin
Created by Bundaberg Rum’s former master distiller Rick Prosser, this gin is in very limited stock. Call Malt Traders today on 07 3846 0587 to secure a bottle for your Dad!
For the food-focussed Dad… Charcuterie and Champagne
Purchase a bottle of bubbles to share and a large platter of Malt Trader’s takeaway charcuterie and cheese before heading to River Quay Green for a fuss-free Father’s Day picnic. Each platter serves four people. Sunday Sessions on the Green takes place each Sunday afternoon so you can soak up some rays and the good vibes while enjoying free live music. Popolo and Aquitaine also pack a mean picnic hamper!
DID YOU KNOW: River Quay Green is a wet licensed area, meaning you can consume alcohol there between 10am and 8pm daily. Please note however, that to consume alcohol at South Bank, you must be 18+, drink responsibly, and you must have food to accompany your drinks.
