13 of the most delicious booze-inspired gift ideas for Father's Day

Father's Day is here, bringing the familiar refrain that dad deserves something better than socks and jocks.

Executive Style has you covered, with our selection some of the most special wines, spirits and beers to excite dad.

Special, like dad

Two recent releases stand out if you really want to splash out, or join forces with other family members, to buy him something really deluxe.

Penfolds' new Lot 1990 Brandy will certainly make a statement. The iconic winemaker has exploded into ultra-premium spirits with a brandy that will appeal to fans of fine cognac and whisky alike.

An exceptional blend of brandies that have been ageing for 28 years, it balances complexity, richness and indulgence with vibrancy and freshness on the palate. It's priced at a cool $425, ensuring Dad will feel very loved on Sunday.

Fancier fare

Or if he's an enthusiast for fine fizz, you can't go past the special vintage champagne just released by celebrated house Charles Heidsieck.

The Blanc des Millénaires 2004 ($430) is only the fourth vintage in this series that kicked off in 1993, when Charles Heidsieck released a Blanc de Blancs from the prestigious 1983 vintage.

The 2004 is drinking beautifully now and will continue to develop complexity over the next decade, if Dad can wait that long.

Of course, finding a present for your aficionado Dad needn't mean giving him more drinks themselves, so we've also included some of the newest books and glassware worthy of your consideration.
