4. Old Fashioned Glasses
Arguably one of the most loved whiskey cocktails is a classic Old Fashioned, so it’s no surprise the cocktail has a unique drinking glass. While the glass is not a prerequisite for a knock-your-socks-off drink, there’s nothing quite like serving up a timeless Old Fashioned in timeless glasses.
Order a set of four and wrap them in plenty of padding for a crowd-pleasing gift that can be proudly displayed in an at-home bar or kitchen.
5. Whiskey Decanter
With a whiskey as beautiful as Misunderstood Ginger Spiced Whiskey, there’s no reason to hide it away on a shelf or behind other bottles. Whiskey decanters are built to hold and display the liquid of the spirit and, if made correctly, the containers are airtight. If you’re concerned about decanting whiskey, there’s no need to worry. Exposure to oxygen doesn’t change the flavor or strength of the whiskey.
6. Whiskey Notes
Think of this as a journal for the whiskey lover. If you’re on a budget and handy at DIY presents, you could purchase a blank journal and create prompts for tasting notes and lines for whiskey experiences. Although we’re pretty partial to one type of whiskey, we’re all for adventuring into the world of whiskey with eyes wide open.
Let your whiskey adventurer keep notes of their experiences safely stored in the pages of their very own whiskey logbook.
7. Leather Coasters
Make cleaning up a breeze and stave away those wooden end table water rings by purchasing a sophisticated set of leather coasters to set out during drinks. It’s not hard to remember to use a leather coaster when it looks so good sitting underneath your freshly poured glass of whiskey.
8. Charcuterie board
Nothing says thoughtful quite as much as a unique way to display your pre-drink nibbles. From cheese to wafers, grapes to olives, a classic charcuterie board is the gift to give for the whiskey lover who already has everything.
Pair a finely hewn board with some much-loved snacks and a bottle of whiskey for your favorite hostess to display at their next soiree.
9. Hot Toddy Mugs
Last but not least, a hot toddy mug is as much of a classic Christmas gift as a pound cake but so much more useful. These sturdy mugs come in a variety of shapes and colors, but clear glass mugs are most typically used as vessels for the favorite winter cocktail. It’s a can’t miss gift for anyone on your list.
No matter who you have to buy gifts for this holiday season, wow them with practical, whiskey-based gifts that can be enjoyed all season long.

10. Misunderstood Ginger Spiced Whiskey
Named for the idea that whiskey is clearly a misunderstood drink, founders Chris and JD set forth to create a whiskey for all. Gone are the days where whiskey is only drunk in settings of pomp and circumstance.
Misunderstood Ginger Spiced Whiskey is for all people, even if they don’t know it yet. Help break down the whiskey barriers hindering many from giving the drink another try. Have a hand in turning a one-drink cowboy (or cowgirl) into a veritable Indiana Jones of the whiskey world.
The Misunderstood Ginger Spiced Whiskey is an 80 proof American blended whiskey distilled from midwest grains, aged in used American oak barrels, and proudly infused and bottled in Kentucky. Tasting notes of vanilla, caramel, toffee, spice, and a refreshing ginger finish, make this whiskey truly unique.
