Some purists may balk at the idea of putting anything but maybe a single ice cube into the glass with their whiskey. For people who enjoy a good cocktail, though, these premium cocktail cherries make the perfect complement to any mixed drink recipe that calls for them. They’re also pretty great with ice cream!
There may not be a more stylish way to serve whiskey to your guests than from this 27-oz. miniature whiskey barrel. The stained finish and faux-copper hardware combine for a barrel that looks great on any countertop. You can even add a few spices to your favorite whiskey inside the barrel and let it sit for a while, infusing a brand new flavor into the liquor.
The standard beer koozie has evolved over the years, and this colster from Yeti might be the peak of that evolution. The double-wall vacuum insulation will keep any canned beverage as cool as it came, and the stainless steel exterior is rugged enough to make it through even the most boisterous camping trips. As an added bonus, every genuine Yet colster comes with a collector stash can with a lid that serves as a great hiding place for valuables.
Uniquely shaped and absorbent, these felt coasters offer a stylish alternative to the standard cork or wooden coaster. They’re also machine washable in cold water, so if you do spill it’s not quite the end of the world. There may not be crying over spilt milk, but there definitely is crying over spilt whiskey.
Opening a beer bottle has never quite been as satisfying as actually drinking it- until now. The PoptheTop Automatic Beer Bottle Opener is super satisfying to use. You just place it over the bottle cap, push it down and wait for the pop. The opener won’t bend caps as it removes them, so collectors can be sure they’re new favorite bottle caps stay in mint condition.
The person you give this too will definitely appreciate the extra room in their fridge created by this thoughtful gift. The BottleLoft is a magnetic bottle holder featuring two strips with three magnetic positions. It can hang six bottles from the ceiling of a refrigerator, freeing up much-needed space for more part-time essentials on the shelves. (Or you could just get a fridge just for beer.)
The crystal clear chunks of spherical ice that this ice maker produces look really cool, but their looks also serve a greater purpose. The large, round shape helps the ice melt much more slowly, giving whiskey drinkers more time to sip and savor their drink before it becomes diluted.
These beer bottle chillers make the perfect gift for any beer lover. The chiller simply slips into a beer bottle to keep it ice-cold. You can keep one in the freezer while the other one keeps your suds nice and cold.
