What Kinds Of Items Can Your Scotch Gift Pack Include?

Liquor: Get Great Scotch for a Gift!

Scotch is a type of whiskey, but it varies from the American whiskey such as bourbon. Whether you consider yourself a scotch expert or have just begun to enjoy this decadent tipple—we offer you some delectable bottles to fill up your glass with. 

Each scotch gift pack includes background information on the liquor used including:

  • Raw materials
  • Production methods
  • History 
  • Geography (e.g. Islay, Lowland, Highland, Speyside)

Scotch is a malt whiskey made from water and barley in Scotland and must be aged for a minimum of three years. The longer it has been aged, the smoother the taste of this drink. 

There are many different types of scotch, including single malt, single grain, blended malt, and blended grain. All these types have their own variations in flavors, sweetness, and smoothness of the spirit. And we make sure that our scotch whiskey gifts carry all the flavors you need from fine liquor. 

When it comes to decent gifts for scotch lovers, our single malt whiskey gifts, we have found, are particularly popular.

Fresh Fruits And Vegetables

Your scotch whiskey gift box can be curated with cocktail ingredients and delicious treats on the side. 

Unless specified, our drink hampers use organic foods as they have more beneficial nutrients.

We include fresh fruits and vegetables locally sourced and organic where possible. 

This is food closest to the earth, designed to complement that sparkling scotch gift set in the best way possible.

Fresh Herbs And Spices

If you want to add a touch of other flavors to your scotch cocktail, we recommend adding fresh herbs. When you add herbs to scotch cocktails, you transform something familiar into something exciting and new. Adding herbs in whiskey cocktails can accentuate the scotch and other ingredients such as citrus, bitters, and sugar.

You can infuse many ingredients into scotch. We have found that fruits, herbs, and spices are probably the easiest to start off with. But don’t let that stop you. The possibilities are endless. 

Adding an assortment of herbs and spices can bring in a touch of the exotic to your scotch whiskey gifts.

Citrus Notes for Scotch Presents

Citrus fruit pairs well with most scotch whisky and is a great compliment to a scotch cocktail. For example the Godfather cocktail features an orange twist garnish which is a great aromatic that gives you a comforting and refreshing sensation.

Fresh citrus helps achieve the perfect balance between the scotch’s musky sweetness and the inherent tangy tartness of the fruit.

Sweeteners

There are small amounts of sugars in almost all whiskies. Most scotch whiskeys usually have some sugar that is dissolved from the oak cask they are aged in. But this is quite low. You can always add a little sweetness to mellow the burn of the scotch. 

Whenever we add sweeteners as part of our cocktail gifts, we ensure that these are free from artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, and sweeteners.

Bitters For Your Scotch Gift Pack

Adding bitters to scotch cocktails can make that drink transformative by enhancing the flavors, taste, and aroma of your scotch cocktail. 

There are some very specific bitters that can enhance the complexity of a good scotch to give as a gift.

These are our favorite bitters:

  • Angostura Aromatic Bitters
  • Regans’ Orange Bitters
  • Peychaud’s Bitters
  • The Bitter Truth Grapefruit Bitters
  • Scrappy’s Chocolate Bitters

Any of these bitters can add a complex perspective to your favorite scotch drink by helping to pull out buried flavors and create balance, texture, and aromatics. For example the Rob Roy cocktail features scotch whisky, sweet vermouth and Angostura bitters.

Scotch Gift Pack Garnishes

Scotch served neat is the most traditional way to enjoy that whiskey. But there are also lots of options for garnishing scotch cocktails. 

Garnishes have to be functional, adding a different dimension to the drink. They can elevate a drink in any sensory way. 

If you add garnishes with your scotch drinker gifts, you have many options to experiment and change the way you drink your favorite scotch.  

Common garnishes include:

  • Lemon twists
  • Orange twists
  • Cherries
  • Ground nutmeg

Ice For Your Scotch Whiskey Gifts

You can always drink whisky neat at room temperature. For most scotch cocktails, you will need good ice. 

For a scotch whiskey gift box featuring cocktails, we include large ice cube trays. This large cube ice doesn’t break down in a drink shaker or mixing glass. It melts slower, so that flavor and texture from the drinks are preserved as you sip your drink.

Glassware Gifts For Scotch Lovers

You can pair our scotch connoisseur gifts with glasses. If you have gone to the trouble of picking a good scotch whiskey gift, then you hardly want to spoil the overall effect. 

Our scotch whisky gift pack can be complemented with glassware tailored for the drink. A Glencairn glass is the most common whiskey tasting glass. A good glass ensures that whiskey has room to breathe and is not cloistered in a narrow stem. This makes the drink easy to swirl.

Other whiskey glasses include:

  • Tulip glass
  • Neat glass
  • Tumbler or rocks glass
  • Snifter

Bar Tools For a Scotch Gift Set

We provide professional barware for all our drink gifts. These are bar tools that our mixologists themselves use!

Our scotch gift sets will guide you to create the perfect drink with the bar tools, the glassware, and all the ingredients together to create a truly bar-like ambience at home!

Scotch Connoisseur Gifts with Chocolates

What are the best gifts for scotch lovers? Something that comes with chocolate! 

Chocolate and whisky go well together. The complex flavors of whisky complement the luxurious texture of a good chocolate. 

Scotch whiskies, in particular, lend themselves to a broad range of expressions and both single-origin and high-cocoa content chocolates work well. 

Apart from chocolates, we offer other snacks as well to compliment our scotch gifts. To learn more about the other food accompaniments consult the individual gift descriptions.
