2021 gift guide: Whiskey

Ahhh, whiskey. There’s no doubt that this brown liquor has had a major resurgence in recent years – or that it makes a damn good gift. A liquor distilled from fermented mash of grains, such as barley, corn or rye, whiskey is an incredibly versatile drink with all sorts of flavors, aging techniques and styles. To help you focus on the ones that'll impress your giftee the most, we’ve rounded up a list of the top whiskey gifts here on Drizly for this weird, 2021 holiday season.
