June 21st isn’t the only important date for us next month. In complete coincidence and perfect timing, the Sunday just before, the 20th, is Father’s Day in the UK. Perhaps all they wanted for Father’s Day was for Covid restrictions to end? In either case, make all their Christmases come at once, because Bookblock’s here with their ultimate Father’s Day Gift Guide, featuring snacks, tipsy tipples and impressive personalised stationery!
An Old Man’s Tipple, for a not so old man?
Within the Bookblock company walls, the Old Man’s Tipple is stuff of legend. This blended Scotch Whiskey is produced with a selection of whiskies aged in oak ex-Bourbon barrels and blended together. It’s incredibly smooth, yet rich and complex, thanks to years of maturation. This 20cl blend of heaven creates spiced and orchard notes, the perfect Father’s Day treat if you ask us! Like what you see, but not sure if Whiskey’s his thing? Naturally, there’s a few things we could otherwise recommend. True to its name, the Toreador Cocktail is one for the bullfighters. But this miniature masterpiece puts a fruity twist on a Margarita. It’s out with the Triple sec and in with the zesty combination of Olmeca Altos tequila, apricot brandy and orange bitters. A Forty Liquors showstopper, we promise you, it’s fiery!
Personalised Stationery, fit for a King?

Savoury Snacks to spoil him silly!
With snacking being a fundamental necessity in life, it’s a good job that Bookblock Deli know flavours and fusions like the back of their hand. Their new Truffle Nuts collection boasts a mix of Almonds, Cashews, Macadamias and Pecans flavoured with a blend of premium Dried Black Truffles. Roasting and seasoning to perfection, it’s not just nuts that these guys have under control. A new fav in the office, their Savoury Pumpkin Seed & Cranberry Biscuits really are as good as they sound!
