Sometimes it seems even the whiskey accessories industry thinks the typical whiskey drinker is a cigar-chomping loudmouth. But the fact is, women love whiskey almost as much (if not more) than men. There just aren’t that many gifts available that are suitable for women. We found thirteen of the best whiskey gifts for women, and decided that W&P’s Carry-On Cocktail Kit was the Best Overall Whiskey Gift for Women.
It’s easy to find a gift for your whiskey-drinking buddy. Have you ever tried to buy a gift for a whiskey-loving woman? There just isn’t nearly as much out there. There’s a vast selection of shot glasses embedded with real bullets, skull-shaped decanters, and misogynistic sayings on t-shirts. But buying a gift for a woman who drinks whiskey can be tricky.
Luckily we did find a nice array of products that are both whiskey-themed and female-friendly. From fancy flasks and interesting reads to tank tops and organic whiskey stones, there’s a gift here for every whiskey-drinking woman.
We chose the Carry-On Cocktail Kit as our Best Overall simply because it’s so convenient. Not every woman will appreciate a stiletto-shaped decanter, or a book about the women who revolutionized the distilling industry. But who doesn’t love a cocktail on the go? The tin is subtle and discreet, and can fit into a purse or backpack with ease. It has everything she needs to mix up an Old Fashioned—including instructions. All she has to do is add her favorite rye (or bourbon, in a pinch) and voila! Cocktail on the run. Now there’s something we can all get behind.
