So, you want to regale someone with a splendid and lavish personalized whiskey hampers? It can be your dad, your loving little brother, your father-in-law, or maybe it is for that special someone in your life who swears by the finest blends of scotch! Before anything else, let’s congratulate you on the wonderful idea since there are few gifts that will be more appreciated by a devoted gourmet whiskey lover than a beautifully crafted Personalized Whiskey Hamper.
However, how do you go about it? What items would best compliment that premium Johnnie Walker Blue Label or 12-Year-Old Chivas Regal Blended Scotch Whisky? Of course, in our opinion, the best whiskey gift hampers should come chock full of tasty treats that can add a whole new level of refinement to the enjoyment of the liquor in question. So, we’re talking things like pralines, nuts, crackers, roasted almonds, salted pretzels, chocolate truffles, premium dark chocolate and the likes. And you also want to make sure that whatever you choose for your personalized whiskey gift basket, each and every item should ideally come from premium brands. However, if you lack the time to handpick all of these different items, an easy alternative is to order a premium whiskey hamper from a renowned gift hamper company such as Hampers with Bite. The latter is a family-run boutique Australian gift hamper company well-loved by its customers for its excellent arrangement of gift baskets and hampers that cover a wide array of themes and designed for many different celebratory occasions as well.
Personalized Whiskey Hampers: How to Go About Preparing One?
As is true when creating a gift hamper of any ilk, it always helps when you are familiar with the tastes and the preferences of the recipient in question. And this holds all the truer when it comes to preparing a whiskey hamper. Spirit lovers are often very particular about the label(s) of their choice. So, make sure you don’t go wrong while choosing the centerpiece of the hamper, the bottle of whiskey, that is!
Now, that out of the way, you can actually try an array of different approaches with a whiskey hamper. For example, the whiskey + a wonderful decanter set full with beautiful crystal whiskey glasses will make for a neat and great whiskey gift hamper. In the same minimalist vein, you can pair the bottle of whiskey with personalized whiskey glasses. Another whiskey gift set idea we love is pairing the whiskey with a top-of-the-line cigar box full with a few great stogies. Throw in a cigar cutter, a cute lighter and some whiskey stones and you have a killing whiskey hamper on your hand!
In this article, however, we would really like to explore the options for edible whiskey hampers. And when it comes to an edible whiskey basket, i.e., a whiskey hamper bursting with yummy treats, possibilities are seemingly endless. The only thing that matters is the budget. In other words, fill the hamper up with as many luxury snacks and sweets as your budget allows. We have already mentioned pretzels, crackers, pralines, nuts and the like, but you can always take it up a notch by adding some gourmet cheese, premium dessert collection, a yummy box of party mix, sesame BBQ peanuts and more.
However, an edible whiskey hamper does not necessarily have to be about tasty comestibles and some great spirit only. You may as well include some of the items we mentioned above to make your edible whiskey basket even more attractive and appealing. So, do consider adding in some great looking coasters, whiskey stones, a couple of personalized whiskey glasses, and last but not the least, some great cigars! Stay creative and you can rest assured that your gift will be heartily appreciated by the recipient.
