Bowmore whisky is one of the oldest single malt scotch whisky brands in the world (est. 1779) and a name most father’s recognise, appreciate and enjoy. While their bottle prices vary, it’s latest offering – Small Batch – is affordable at a RRP of £32.99 and is widely available from May in Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Morrisons, so would make an ideal father’s day gift for most daughters and daughter in laws.
As Father’s day is all about making your dad feel special, take a look at this Salted Carmel Crust recipe with Claridge’s former Head Chef Mark Sargeant , which is quick and easy to make at home and complements the Whiskey’s tones perfectly – making serving your father with a relaxing Single Malt a fun experience and a real occasion.

Spoon a small amount of sauce into the bottom of the glass and then chill in the fridge for at least an hour. Pour Bowmore into the glass and enjoy.
