DO try some proper stuff at the Whisky Altruist Father’s Day Tasting
40 years old might be a little younger than your dad, but it’s old when it comes to whiskies - that’s why the chance to taste some in the age range of 23-40 is such a perfect father’s day treat. The idea is that, by clubbing together, guests can try whiskies that would normally be out of their price range - it’s not-for-profit, hence the name.
The Gunnersbury. Wed Jun 19. £45.
DO transport him back to his youth at the Museum of Brands
Does your dad adore talking about his first car or the double-decker he used to ride around town on in his youth? Then transport him back to those days at the Museum of Brands which is hosting a hunt spanning 150 years of transportation history. Once you’ve completed the trail, kick back in the garden and let him continue to regale tales of childhood bikes and teenage travels.
Museum of Brands, Packaging & Advertising, 111-117 Lancaster Rd, W11 1QT. £9.

The Postal Museum and Mail Rail, 15-20 Phoenix Place, WC1X 0DA. £17.05.
