Is he some aul fella for one aul fella?! We're getting ready for Father's day on 16th June and putting together a collection of cards and gift ideas for dads.

 

 

There's been some rain out there this week! On the bright side, hopefully the rain will help the seeds we planted over last weekend. This lovely set of seeds creates a magnificent Edible Flower Garden. The seeds are super easy to grow, and you can enjoy eating them just a few weeks after sowing. The flower varieties included are: Lavender, Munstead, Calendula Officinalis, Viola and Nasturtium Tom Thumb Mix.

 

 

We've been putting together some great gift ideas for dads on Instagram and on our website. Dads will love juicing up with our morph battery mug, fill it with hot coffee and watch the battery turn green! And our Legless pirate corkscrew not only works brilliantly as a corkscrew, it always gives us a chuckle as well, with his little earring, parrot and peg leg! The Dadzilla greeting card is designed by Brian Coldrick specially for designist. 

 

 

The Dead Rabbit lads are back with another book, and this time, they are taking us on the ultimate whiskey tour of Ireland. These pub and drink experts are best known for their bar The Dead Rabbit Grocery & Grog in Lower Manhattan which has won almost every major award in the industry including 'World's Best Bar' (twice). In From Barley to Blarney they present a history of distilling in Ireland, a tour of the distilleries and some fascinating accounts of the stories that go with them. They travel through Ireland province by province visiting the distilleries in each region, and as many of Ireland's greatest pubs as they can. Along the way, for the true lover, they also discuss the spectrum of styles, taste and production methods, as well as meeting some of the people who are re-shaping the world of Irish whiskey today. This whiskey lover's guide to Ireland is a remarkable book filled with amazing stories, photos and facts; a fantastic gift for any whiskey lover, or indeed anyone with an interest in contemporary distilling in Ireland.
