Whiskies to gift dad this Father’s Day

Auchentoshan, pronounced “OK-Ken-TO-Shan”, is the only triple-distilled Scottish whisky with a heritage dating back to 1825, which has the effect of softening the flavour and achieving a resulting reputation for being “light”. The result is a light-bodied whisky that is delicate in flavour but by no means bland. Auchentoshan American Oak retails at a recommended selling price of R299 and is available at participating retailers nationwide.

Maker’s Mark is handcrafted American bourbon with a signature smooth, full-flavour, topped with one-of-a-kind red wax. Internationally recognised for a keen attention to finer details, the distillery holds true to its founding belief that character isn’t made by the machine. Available nationwide at a recommended selling price of R499.

Healthy new drink ditches the Dragons to deliver a natural energy boost

A healthy, natural alternative to traditional energy drinks, Füd. Vitamin Energy has launched two delicious flavours – Berry & Coconut and Pineapple & Ginger. Füd combines natural caffeine, B-vitamins and electrolytes with real fruit juices to deliver a completely natural energy boost.
Available via in sleek 250ml cans (RRP: £1.95), the drinks contain no added sugar, no sweeteners, and are naturally low in calories (7kcal/ 100ml for Berry & Coconut and 8kcal/ 100ml for Pineapple & Ginger).
Füd’s launch follows founder Philip Udeh and co-founder Jess Gould pitching their product to potential investors on BBC2’s Dragons’ Den. An episode airing earlier this year saw Philip telling the Dragons how he founded the brand after struggling for years with chronic fatigue due to sickle cell anaemia. Disillusioned by retailers stocking mainly sugary or artificially-sweetened energy drinks, he started a journey to create something better.

The drink, then known as Brain Füd, piqued the interest of the formidable panel of business leaders, leading to an eventual offer from Peter Jones of £50k for 30% of the company. The deal was agreed by the entrepreneurs in the Den who left with a high profile partner in Peter Jones. After the show and following negotiations with Peter Jones’ team, the duo opted to reject the offer in favour of a crowdfunding campaign via the SEEDRS platform. They successfully exceeded their £100k target by £10k, bringing more than 200 new investors on board to enable the newly-revamped Füd. Vitamin Energy to launch in the UK in Spring 2020.

Philip Udeh commented: “So many energy drinks on the market are packed with artificial ingredients, preservatives and added sugar. We’re pleased to be offering an alternative that provides a natural and hydrating boost to your energy levels, brain power and muscle function. Being put through our paces on Dragon’s Den was definitely a once in a lifetime experience and it was great to have Peter believe in our concept. We’re also immensely proud to have gained the support of hundreds of investors via our crowdfunding campaign. We want to give people a product which helps them to be at their very best, in a completely natural way.”

Happy Fathers Day to the Best Dog Dads

It’s very funny, it’s illustrated, and readers love it because it’s not crude, rude or gross.

At $20, it’s a steal!

It made the Amazon Best Seller list and Dymocks even gave it shelf space (see attached).



Forget craft beer or whisky, this Father’s Day, award-winning retailer Aldi expects rosé to be the drink of choice for Dads across the UK. Thanks to fine weather and an increase in male drinkers, Aldi’s rosé wine sales have spiked by +56% in the last month[1], and this is expected to continue as shoppers look to treat the men in their lives this June.

Rosé is certainly the drink of the moment, with over 4.5million Instagram snaps tagged #rosé, and its popularity shows no signs of stopping. Indeed, last Summer 1 in 8 bottles of wine drunk in the UK were rosé[2], and the IWSR and Wine Intelligence predict overall sales will be up +50% this year[3].

Once deemed a ‘female’ tipple, Aldi wine expert, Sam Caporn MW, says that is simply no longer the case: “Gone are the days when rosé was predominantly associated with women drinking sweet, brightly hued pink zinfandels. You just need to look at Aldi’s range of rosé wines to see the scale and breadth of different wines that shoppers can easily access. Coupled with greater wine education, it’s little wonder both women AND men are sharing a collective love of the pink drink.”

Why not treat your Dad to a bottle (or two) this Father’s Day? Aldi’s fantastic selection of award-winning rosés includes everything from fizz to the best of English and French styles, which are sure to leave them blushing with joy.

Lyme Block English Rosé (£8.99, 75cl) – available in store

A Third Of Dads Have Been Wearing the Same Aftershave For More Than 20 years, says survey

Is your Dad stuck in a fragrance time-warp? If so he isn’t alone. A new survey has revealed that a third of Dads over the age of 40 have worn the same make of aftershave for more than 20 years!

Research into Father’s Day fragrance trends by has revealed that men more than women tend to stick to what they know and like when it comes to their signature scent – much like they do their beer and cars, suggesting they are more creatures of habit than their female counterparts.

While 35% of Dads questioned say they have been wearing the same aftershave for 20 years, one in ten began wearing the fragrance they still spritz today in the 80s and 90s. Just 18% wear a different aftershave every year and are not loyal to a certain product.

On average the men questioned have used just six different aftershaves in the past 20 years. Half claim that they only use a different aftershave if it is given as a gift.

In comparison, only 21% of women in the same age group have worn their signature scent for more than 20 years, with most switching to a new favourite every ten years, but females have tried more than double the number of new fragrances within this time.

Most women have on average between two and three bottles of perfume open at a time – one or two for everyday and one for going out. While 61% of men use one fragrance at a time (versus 13% women).

With Father’s Day just around the corner (21 June), the poll of 1,890 UK adults found that almost three quarters of men like to receive aftershave as a gift but that 62% complained that they have received a fragrance present ‘that was awful’.

69% of women say that they would like their partner to switch up his smell, with a staggering 37% admitting that they don’t actually really like their partner’s choice of fragrance. Almost a quarter of men are not really bothered about how they smell.

A further suggestion that men are ‘creatures of habit’, men’s tendency to stick to the same aftershave is mirrored by their beer drinking habits. When quizzed a massive 76% said they now only buy the same brand of booze having discovered it’s what they like and 44% said they have a preferred brand of clothing. Eight out of 10 prefer to also keep to the same make of car, 56% just changing the model under their preferred marque.

Father’s Day Fragrances Through the Decades

If your Dad loves a classic, he may still be wearing one of the iconic male scents from the past five decades. It may have even been a Father’s Day present ‘back in the day’. And in fact, many of the cult fragrances making the list are still best sellers today according to

In Perfume Direct’s vote for the most iconic male scents of the past five decades, following on from Brut’s dominance of the 1970s, the male fragrance of the 80s, remembered by most respondents in this decade, is Kouros. This is closely followed by the timeless Dior Fahrenheit, which boomed in the 80s. The stand-out scents of the 90’s were the fresh notes of Davidoff Cool Water and L’eau d’Issey Pour Homme. Moving into the noughties, Allure Homme Sport was voted as the smell that defined the decade and in 2010 both Creed’s Aventus and Bleu de Chanel tied at the top as the aftershaves of this time.

Commenting, Jonny Webber of Perfume Direct says: “Of course there is a lot to be said for Dads having a signature scent, as he will have a ‘certain smell’ that will always remind you of him. Our sense of smell is closely linked to our emotions and memories – so buying Dad a scent you love is actually a great idea!

“It’s also easy to see why some of the male fragrances first launched even 40 years ago are still favoured by so many, despite the launch of scores of new scents every year. Some fragrances are just ones that stand out as timeless classics, such as Fahrenheit and Davidoff Cool Water, which – perhaps unlike Dad – don’t seem to age!

“But if it’s time to bring Dad up to date with a more current fragrance for Father’s Day this year we have two pieces of advice.

“For those who want to play it safe, you can keep to the same fragrance family to the one your Dad prefers. These are generally categorised as fresh, floral, woody or oriental.

“For a fresh aftershave try Mont Blanc Legend Spirit (£17.99), for Floral Thierry Mugler Alien (£54.99); a great men’s Woody fragrance is Hugo Boss Bottled (£37.99) and in the oriental family we suggest, Hugo Boss Dark Blue (£25.99).

“Alternatively, five fragrances will be a sure fire hit with Dads this year if they don’t already reside in his bathroom cabinet, include Dior Sauvage (£59.99), Tom Ford Black Orchid (£52.99), Jimmy Choo Man (£21.99), Calvin Klein Dark Obsession (£19.99) and Paco Rabanne Invictus (£55.99).”

Jonny added: ““Whether you opt for something brand new or opt for an iconic scent, aftershave and the memories that it can evoke, is the perfect gift for Father’s Day.”

Writer Gary Greenberg (also a rugby enthusiast!) is releasing his bubbly + humorous book this summer titled: The Beer Diet: How to Drink Beer and Not Gain Weight

Gary Greenberg was born and raised in the Philadelphia area. He attended Penn State University where he majored in rugby, beer and coeds, and miraculously graduated with a B.A. degree in journalism in 1976. He has now been writing professionally for more than 40 years, primarily as an award-winning newspaper reporter and editor. Since 1999, he has owned and operated the freelance writing service SuperWriter, Inc.

It wasn’t quite “love at first sip” when Gary was given a warm Miller High Life at age fourteen, but as an adult he quickly learned to appreciate the complex flavors of fine ales, and the warm and fuzzy feelings they impart. Upon hitting middle age, his beer consumption contributed to a slow but steady weight gain. Tapping into his knowledge of natural health, he adjusted his diet and lifestyle in ways that allow him to drink plenty of beer without gaining weight. In The Beer Diet, he reveals how he did it, and how others can have their beer and waistlines, too.

When Gary isn’t writing, he still enjoys an occasional game of rugby, brewing his own beer, traveling off the beaten path, and hanging out at his Boca Raton, Florida, home with his eternally beautiful wife Nora. They have a grown son Glen as well as an assortment of pets, currently a rescue dog named Roxanne, birds Baba and Olaf, turtles Stella and Dottie, and bearded dragon lizard Klaus.
