Holiday season is here and it’s time to become the best Santa your friends and family ever had. We know, if you’re not one of the rare gift-Jedi people who know exactly what to get, buying gifts is a pain in the Xmass. You can’t resort to books as gifts every year, right?
Don’t you worry, we have the perfect solution for you.
Give the VIP in your life something boozier – a true Christmas Spirit. You’ll bring joy and a chance to try something new. Plus, next time you visit that particular friend, you’ll know they have something awesome to sip on. It’s a win-win situation.
If you’re overwhelmed and not sure what to choose, we got your back. Join us in our holiday season gift shop while we find something nice for your love, your friends, your family, and of course, yourself. Let’s sift through our treasure chest and boil everything down to six cool gift ideas.
1. Whiskies of the World Advent CalendarAdvent calendars are always fun as every day is literally a gift. Don’t worry, we didn’t stuff birds or maids a-milking into the box, but high-class and full-glass Whiskies from all around the world (or corners, if you’re a flat-earther).
The trick is to turn every day into a holiday: just an ordinary Thursday? Pop out a vial, and shazam!, it’s a No-thirst-day now. Each day is a chance to explore the vast planet of Whiskeyland – Bourbon, Scotch, Single Malt, Irish, Japanese, Rye – you name it. Sure, chocolate is cool but you’re a grown-ass person and a daily vial of Whiskey is way more fun. Give it to your favorite person, even if that person is you.
2. Flaviar Home BarThe focal point of every home used to be a fireplace, until central heating was invented. Now, we need a new hearth – preferably one with booze.
A home bar is the perfect place to gather and chill. Because we know the hardest part is the beginning, we came up with the Flaviar Bar, your new nook to unhook, fully equipped and stocked with five bottles of premium stuff. Love turns a house into a home, but Flaviar Bar turns it into a bar at home.
You can even personalize it with the recipient's name and make sure their Spirits game is always on point.
3. Flaviar Exclusive Glencairn glass and badass premium coastersWhen you get a new bottle of your favorite poison, you need a cool vessel to pour it in, and a classy envy-inducing coaster, right? Sure, you can put your snazzy PX-finish 18YO Scotch into an ordinary glass, and sure, you can protect your surfaces with a stolen beer promo coaster you stole during one of the benders. But should you?
If we know anything about you, it’s that you’re not a barbarian (apologies to members of actual barbarian tribes). And neither should be your friends.
Meet the exclusive, Flaviar-branded Glencairn tasting glass, used in all serious distillery labs. It’s a must-have for any malt head as it enhances the sipping experience by amplifying the color, capturing the treasured scents, and keeping the flavors pure. You can get a four-pack or a lovely duo for Spirit-lovin’ couples. Every glass is branded with a Flaviar dove.
Then, there are the coasters. Which material is the coolest? Ask Fonzie, Tyler Durden or Maverick: it’s the good old leather. And the first set of coasters is made from exactly that! Hold on, let’s make this gift even wilder. How about putting your Glencairn glass on a concrete coaster? You heard us.
A pack of high-quality renegade leather/concrete coasters, each stamped with Flaviar emblem, is an unexpected and out-of-the-box holiday gift every booze aficionado will appreciate. Hell, get yourself a pack, too!
And for those who want to broadcast their allegiance to excellence, there are Flaviar socks, shirts, sweaters, flasks, pins and beret caps that will elevate the Spirits game. You gotta look good when you feel good.
4. An exciting and themed Flaviar Tasting BoxWe’re all about discovering new Spirits and broadening the horizons. One of the best ways to do that are our Tasting Boxes.
Want to dip your toes into the world of fantastic French Cognacs or a remarkable realm of Bourbons? How about a story about Mezcal or a rainbow of excitingly different Gins? Wanna try Papa Hemingway’s favorite drams or perhaps explore Rums that go that extra mile? We have them all.
In fact, there are almost 50 different Tasting Boxes available with new swanky ones pouring in all the time. Each Tasting Box brings you three vials of premium hooch to expand your Spirit-ual experiences or enlighten one of your loved ones.
Maybe you adore Scotch and want to persuade your dad to step out of his Bourbon Bubble; or there’s a friend that refuses to sip on G&T because she’s not “that into Gin”. Give them the right Tasting Box, a gateway dram to new spheres of drinking.
5. The classic gift: a bottle of top-notch potionA bottle of booze is a staple of gifts since 1388 (give or take a year) and it’s a safe bet for any friend that’s not a teetotaler. We compiled a helpful holiday selection of you-can’t-go-wrong bottles, just for you.
Among them, there’s the fantastic Balvenie 21 Year Old Port Wood Finish, or the amazing WhistlePig Whiskey Homestock - also avalaible with engraving. Perhaps your friend is an exquisite pirate. Get her a Ten To One Caribbean Dark Rum. Does your S.O. prefer neat Gin over Gin & Tonic? The Elephant Gin is a shoo-in.
Oh, and let’s not forget the delightful selection of Flaviar Exclusives. Here are the Spirits from different categories with a story to tell.
Shakmat, the Flaviar-inspired Brandy from Armenia that will absolutely blow your mind. Frérot Extra, the Spirit worthy of the king that will amplify your loved one’s Cognac experience.
One of-a-kind Hercules Mulligan Rum & Rye, a simple concoction of Caribbean Rum, American Rye Whiskey and bitters. Larga Vida XO Rum 2019 Edition, a true vacation for the tastebuds.
And last but not least, a bottle for everyone who loves Bourbon and wants to try something new and truly American: Corn Trooper United Craft Bourbon.
We could spend all week recommending you great Spirits, to be frank. It doesn’t matter if your “gift recipient” is a Spirit rookie or Level 9000; wild or rigorous; a Mezcal-head or a Gin fanatic. You’ll find a bottle so perfect they’ll think it was made exclusively for them.
6. A Flaviar Membership – if you’re still not sureStill undecided what gift to get? Fret not, we have the ultimate gift for Spirit lovers in your life: a Flaviar Membership.
You know what they say: stuff is okay, but community is far better. Your loved one will become a member of the world’s largest club of Spirit enthusiasts.
You can get them a 6-month or one-year membership that opens a whole new world to them: A ton of Tasting Boxes and full-size bottles; access to exclusive, rare, and hard-to-find Spirits; live tasting events, a lively community of connoisseurs and casual buffs; and much, much more.
Becoming a part of an extraordinary secret society might be the best holiday present. And if you’re not already in our family, treat yourself as well. We have a special spot saved just for you.
We hope we made your gift-hunting easier. Spend these festive weeks with people you love, drinking only the best booze. We wish you lovely holidays and merry Christmas. Cheers!
