Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey – Currently £32 from Tesco with a Clubcard The ultimate Father’s Day gift for Bourbon connoisseurs and casual whiskey fans alike, 

Elijah Craig Small Batch is the signature Bourbon bearing the name of Reverend Elijah Craig, who founded his distillery in 1789 along Elkhorn Creek in present day Georgetown, Kentucky. He is credited with being the first distiller to age his whiskey in charred oak barrels, earning his place in history as the Father of Bourbon. 

Long before the term Small Batch existed, Heaven Hill’s Master Distillers were hand-selecting just the right number of barrels to make Elijah Craig. Elijah Craig knew he had discovered something great. He continued to refine the barrel charring process, imparting smooth, rich flavor to the spirit that would become known as Bourbon. 250 years later, he is still known  as the “Father of Bourbon”. Heaven Hill Distillery craft the Bourbon today using the same time honoured methods.

The Master Distillers at Elijah Craig use malted barley, rye and local corn to produce this burnished copper coloured Bourbon, with a delightfully complex aroma, notes of vanilla bean, sweet fruit and fresh mint. The taste is smooth and warm, woody with accents of smoke and nutmeg and a long, sweet and slightly toasty finish. RRP: from £42 for 70cl. ABV: 47%. Available from:

Porta 6 Red Wine 2.jpeg

Porta 6 Red is a great-tasting and affordable Portuguese red wine, made from a blend of 50% Aragonês, 40% Castelão and 10% Touriga Nacional grapes. Porta 6 Red is complex, with red and wild berries and hints of nuts. It has a soft mouthfeel with a medium finish. 

The Porta 6 bottles have a unique label which features a painting showcasing a slice of Lisbon life: a sun soaked, relaxed scene with one of the city’s famous yellow trams. Street artist Hauke Vagt, originally from Germany, settled in Lisbon in the early ‘90s, where he fell in love with the city and its relaxed lifestyle. He sold his paintings to tourists outside the Castle of St. George, probably never imagining this particular image would find itself on wine shelves in almost every corner of the world.
