Assouline Whiskey Cocktails book
A go-to tome for amateur bartenders and cocktail connoisseurs alike, this 140-page book collects recipes from America's top mixologists and frames it against the knowledge of expert Brian Van Flandern. Trace the spirit's roots throughout America and the world and feast your eyes on full-color pictures from such legendary New York City bars as The Brandy Library, Dead Rabbit Bar, and McSorleys.
Baccarat decanter and whiskey highball glasses
Elevate cocktail hour with this elegant set, which telegraphs to guests that their host is a worldly man of taste. While liquor doesn't need to be decanted in the way wine does, it doesn't hurt to present your spirits in a more impressive manner, and barware from arguably the world's best crystal maker is sure to do that.
Bird Dog Bay tie, cufflinks, and briefcase
Each whimsical, often animal-themed, design is hand-drawn by founder Steve Mayer, who vowed to create products that married classic style with high-quality design. The leather goods are made with Texas steer hide, while the ties are 100-percent silk twill, hand-printed, and hand-made. The outdoor theme makes itself known with the company's 12 gauge brass cufflinks, the perfect gift for an avid sportsman.
Brackish bow ties
Co-founder Ben Ross crafted bow ties made from turkey feathers for his groomsmen in 2007, and a decade later the stylish accessories have become a highly sought-after finishing touch for well-dressed gentlemen wanting to make an impression. The feathers are all-natural and sustainably sourced and are handcrafted in Charleston.
Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge
Hello whiskey, goodbye watered-down. This is the artful way to perfectly chill, but not water down, your favorite spirits. During freezing, the ice forms a wedge shape on one side of the glass, so when you pour a drink the wedge melts slowly to helps retain your drink's full favor.
Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses
A true American classic, these sunnies set the standard. Whether he's the type that's always misplacing his specs and needs a backup or is just in need of his first pair, you can't go wrong with the original.
Sugarfina Vice collection
What's the one thing that could make candy better? Booze. The luxury candy company combines these two indulgences into delectable desserts like Bourbon Bears, Single Malt Scotch Cordials, Pale Ale Pints, and Martini Olive Almonds. But these treats are safe for the teetotaler, as they don't contain any actual alcohol.
