Our fourth and final Christmas gift guide brings you four last-minute whisky gift ideas – some with next-day shipping! If you can’t get them in time for Christmas, they’ll make excellent presents for other special occasions and celebrations in the new year. Check out our previous three gift guides: The 12 Bottles of Christmas, Beyond the Bottle, and A very whisky Christmas.

The whisky candle

Fill a home with the warm fragrance of honey, vanilla, orange and spicy oak. Inspired by the classic old fashioned cocktail and with a burn time of 65 hours, this is a welcoming candle for cosy nights. JoJoCo’s vegan-friendly candles are handmade in Scotland with 100% natural soy wax, a lead-free cotton wick primed with vegetable-based wax, and premium fragrance oils. Each candle comes with a gift bag and gift tag included.

Dependable drams

Need to fill up that shopping cart with some more whisky? Why not a 12-year-old classic? There’s fruity Aberlour 12, honeyed Chivas Regal 12, spicy Redbreast 12, smooth The Glenlivet 12 – something for everyone, and available at most whisky retailers.

Whisky lover’s best friend

Copper Dog Whisky, from famous whisky hotel, The Craigellachie, allows dog lovers to put their favourite canine friend on their own bottle of the Speyside Malt. A percentage of sales go towards the Wild at Heart Foundation, the charity which helps stray dogs all over the world. Bottles can be customised with a choice of 33 doggy doodles by British artist Hugo Guinness, whose art is featured all around The Craigellachie.

A modern blend

Partnering with newly rebranded drinks retailer SPIRIT.ED (formerly 31DOVER), Leith blender Woven Whisky has released a collaborative limited-edition whisky – the perfect seasonal blend for curious whisky drinkers. The whisky, which is composed of Speyside and Campeltown single malts underpinned by Lowland grain whiskies, is described as possessing a vibrant and upbeat profile, bringing together notes of sweet spice, vanilla and dried citrus peel. It can be delivered to your door next-day!
