Father’s Day is on its way, and it can be tricky to find the right gift. No one wants to spend a fortune, but it’s a good excuse to say thank you.

That’s why buying him something he can sup on during his special day is always a winner – and better still, you could toast the day together.

Here are our top picks for father figures everywhere…

2. Folc Dry English Rosé 2023, £21.99

Brand new and available from June 2, this Scottish dram gives off a whiff of lemongrass and aniseed, and tastes deliciously smoky and spicy. Serve over ice and toast the day.
