FATHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE FEATURED ROOT

Father’s Day Gift Guide: Picking the Right Booze to Match His Personality

The Engineer

The Engineer

Quiet and reserved and interested in how and why things work, Engineer-Dad has superior skills with mechanical things. Usually interested in and talented at extreme sports he is uncomplicated in his needs. Trustworthy and unwavering to his peers, he has a knack for finding solutions to problems and will keep at it until the problem is solved. Therefore Engineer-Dad would love Root. It’s based on a 1800s Pennsylvania folk recipe, stemming from a 1700s recipe for root tea calling for roots that were fermented into beers. The nose here screams root beer, but the underlying tastes need some analytical mining. Best served chilled, this is a certified organic spirit. Billed as the first American liqueur in a century, that claim is not off the mark as this unique beverage is ripe with birch tree, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and woody notes.
