Nick Offerman and Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky Show That Anything He Can Do, His Dad Can Do Better

OFFERMAN WOODSHOP, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nick Offerman is on a quest to create the perfect Father's Day gift for his dad Ric in the latest installment of the My Tales of Whisky content series.

While last Father's Day Nick and Ric spent quality time together fishing and saying absolutely nothing, this year Nick aims to make most of a solid hour to expertly craft his ideal Father's Day gift. Unbeknownst to him, dad Ric was one step, or, one key away, you might say.

"Getting the right gift for my father is never easy, which is why I prefer to make it with my bare hands," Offerman said as he set out to create something special for his father Ric. "My father taught me everything I know, including practical skills such as wood crafting, good manners, and fine taste in whisky."

Let Nick's thoughtful, hand-made attempt to surprise his Dad inspire you to think big when it comes to gifting this year. He can even offer you a bit of sage advice during a live Reddit "Ask Me Anything," on Friday, June 16th at 9am EST. Tune in for a lively conversation about whisky, wood and fathers.

Ultimately your effort will likely pale in comparison to the skillful hands of the Offermans, but if you pair your gift with Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky you are certain not to fail. So raise up a glass to the man who raised you! Grab your dad, pour yourselves a dram of Lagavulin and enjoy responsibly.
