Valley Girl’s Ultimate Father’s Day Gift Guide

We get it; dads are hard to buy gifts for. But before you settle for some lame card and a six-pack of cheap beer, check out this round up of guy-friendly goodies guaranteed to make him feel like the dude of the day.

Scotchdale

This Scottsdale-inspired world class scotch, cleverly coined “The Most Livable Whisky”, is the creation of two local libation aficionados with a thirst for the finer things in life – just like dad. Using blended pure malt whisky from the Highland and Speyside regions of Scotland and matured in charred American oak bourbon barrels for a minimum of 8 years, Scotchdale results in a flavorful whisky with hints of honey, chocolate, caramel, oak and coffee. Maybe throw in some leather-bound books with this gift because dad is going to really feel like a big deal after a few sips. Find where to buy in the Valley at scotchdale.net.
