What makes our 2023 list of gifts for bourbon lovers the best ever?
We’ve personally tested the items on this list! We at Wholefully recommend these items because we bought these items with our own money and tested them in our own homes. We don’t accept any freebies for our gift guides, so you can trust that everything on this list is something we truly love.
We try to find a good balance between big box stores and small businesses in all of our gift guides. We also try to ensure that we include many options from diverse companies, including BIPOC-owned companies, woman-owned companies, and LGBTQ+-owned companies. Happy shopping!
Why aren’t specific bourbon on this list?
Chances are, your favorite bourbon lover already knows their preferred bottles, and what each bourbon connoisseur considers to be the “best bourbon” will vary widely from person to person. So we don’t generally recommend gifting a bottle of liquor to a hardcore bourbon fan, unless you know what their preferences are.
However, if you want to gift a bottle to go with one of the decanters or cocktail ingredients below, or think they may want to try something new, we do have some suggestions! Du Nord Craft Spirits and Guidance Whiskey are both Black-owned distilleries that make top-notch whiskeys. You could even gift them a “make your own whiskey” kit!
