A Drink for Dad

Father’s Day is coming up! This year why not celebrate by offering Dad a lesson behind the bar?


For the Dad who enjoys whisky on the rocks, help expand his palate with Brugal 1888 – a double-aged sipping rum. The perfect gift for those who appreciate indulging in a unique spirit, 1888 is first aged in medium toasted American white oak casks, followed by a second maturation in first-filled European Sherry oak casks.

Is Dad more the cocktail shaker kind of guy? Brugal Extra Dry Rum will surely change any lingering perceptions he’s had about rum in the past. The spirit’s dry character mixes for better, more balanced cocktails that are light on the sweet and heavy on the smooth.  Here are a few for you to try.
