1. Decanter Set
Decanter sets run the gamut in terms of gifts for whiskey enthusiasts. Lower-end ones sit on store shelves and are plain or have a particular brand name on them. Higher-end varieties are made of crystal and can be engraved with someone’s name, initials, or even an image.
2. Whiskey-Infused Foods
Whiskey can be found in more than just a bottle. Look for whiskey-infused coffee, tea, jams, sauces, desserts, candies, bacon, syrup, marinades, nuts, chocolate bars, and so much more. You could outfit your entire kitchen with whiskey-infused foods. Don’t worry. The alcohol content of these products is minimal. But the flavor and aroma are unmistakable in these delicious gifts for whiskey enthusiasts. Look for gift baskets or purchase individual items to create your own hodgepodge of yummy stuff!
3. Whiskey Barrel Dispenser
Whiskey barrel dispensers allow you to appear as though your spirit comes straight from the source. Barrels look authentic, although they aren’t 53 gallons in size.

All you need is a whiskey glass with a 2-½ inch clear ice ball from Spirits On Ice to complete this gift for a whiskey enthusiast. Use the small barrel to age and serve your favorite spirit. All you need is a funnel to pour your whiskey from the bottle into the barrel for authentic wood aging.
