It may seem absurd in this day and age, but sadly gender stereotyping is still alive and kicking. Not at The Whisky Exchange, though.
The men here are neither moisturising metrosexuals nor knuckle-dragging neanderthals, but Billy A keeps his flat tidy and reckons he can cook a bit, while Tim F has a manbag and applies deodorant at least twice a week - whether he needs it or not.
This section is not really intended as a guide for women to buy stuff for men – that’s really not necessary. Most women are well aware that while they might pretend to be deep, unknowable, intellectually complex characters, in fact most men's needs are simple: sometimes they like playing with things and finding new stuff; other times they prefer comfy chairs and a large glass of their favourite tipple.
We've chosen these products in that spirit: some of them are for putting your feet up with, like Highland Park, Glenfiddich, Martell and Talisker. Others are entertainingly bonkers, like Crystal Head, The Botanist and Hacienda de Chihuahua.
Please peruse our selection of great spirits, interspersed with a few weird and wonderful picks for those who like something different. These are not manly, macho gifts. They're just great gifts.
