Decant a liquid into a glass container and it instantly becomes more desirable; think of that time you sipped your favourite fizzy pop from a glass bottle, or cast your eye over the array of perfumes or aftershaves that adorn your dresser: the same, naturally, goes for whisky.

And how many times have you seen plastic engraved?
With Mother’s Day on the horizon and Father’s Day in the not * too* distant future – plus a steady stream of birthdays and respective ‘what to buy?!’ issues for many of us – the Scotch whisky brand is the dream alternative to flowers/wine/chocolates, and boasts two unique solutions to the former question: a 70cl bottle for whisky connoisseurs, and the 20cl gift box version, for those whose house still hosts a drinks cabinet. Even better? Both are available for personalisation with the aforementioned engraving. Sorted.
