Whiskey Drinker’s Christmas List 2013
Holiday season is back! We’ve all got a special whiskey drinker in our lives to shop for, so we’re here to help you find that perfect gift for him or her (or yourself).
W&P Cocktail Kit from Art in the Age: This beautiful kit includes the Mason Cocktail Shaker (which we featured here), a jigger, wooden muddler, two cloth napkins, four glass tumblers, and the Art in the Age custom bar bag. It’s a beautiful set and bag that will set you back $349. Also available is the W&P Cocktail Kit directly from W&P. At $279, this set includes 2 coupe glasses instead of 4 tumblers.

Whiskey Shaving Puck and Mug: Portland General Store offers this enamelware mug and shaving puck for $42. We were skeptical at first, but we can confirm that it really does smell like whiskey in a very pleasant way. They also carry a whiskey aftershave.
Old Fashioned Print: This beautiful print from Bourbon Built would be a wonderful addition to any home bar. Pick one up for only $10.

Sphere Ice Molds: Few things are as striking as a large ice ball in your whiskey on the rocks or cocktail. It also melts much slower than regular ice. This set of two molds from World Market is only $10.99.
Retro Ice Crusher: Sometimes you want a mint julep or another drink that calls for crushed ice. We’ve always loved these vintage ice crushers. They do the job and look pretty while doing it. It’s also incredibly easy to find a wide variety of them, so you can always be sure to find one that perfectly matches your style. A quick Etsy search yields hundreds of options. Your local antique or vintage store is very likely to have a few as well.
Yarai Mixing Glass: Mixing glasses are another beautiful and functional addition to any bar. This glass from Boston Shaker is a steal at $56. A good mixing glass is an essential for anyone making cocktails.
Hopefully this guide helps you find the perfect gift for your favorite whiskey drinker. Of course, you can always buy a special bottle of bourbon too. If you’re still looking for help, all the items from our 2011 and 2012 gift guides should still be available.
Yep, it’s that time of year.
