It’s that time of year again when we start thinking of ideas to treat the father figures in our lives. While food and drink fans are relatively easy to buy for, finding them something new to try can often be a challenge. We looked at some of our favourites that are sure to tick the boxes of even the pickiest food and drink fanatic and definitely have you in the good books!
One for Coffee fans
Dark Arts Coffee are fuelling the community of tired dads, one bag of coffee at a time. Their limited-edition Father’s Day offering, Father Yod, is a washed pink bourbon from Sebastian Gomez’s farm Finca La Divisa. Pink Bourbon is a relatively new varietal that’s a hybrid between red and yellow bourbon. This varietal is not easy to cultivate, requiring a lot of maintenance and meticulous attention to detail. From whole beans to ground coffee suitable for any at-home set-up, it’s a great way to give dads the gift of a delicious, freshly brewed cup of coffee this Father’s Day.
Father’s Day Coffee: £14, darkartscoffee.co.uk

The Continental Connoiseur
For Father’s Day, treat dad to Iberica’s very own, award-winning JP Domecq 100% Iberico Bellota Ham from Huelva with a complimentary carving knife for £650. The authentic Spanish restaurant and deli are one of the only places in the UK where you can find this rare Iberico Ham, where the pigs have been fed with acorns and pasture until they reach 50 kilos weight, resulting in the highest quality meat.
Considered one of the best ham producers in Spain, Juan Pedro Domecq has won 3 Gold Stars at the Great Taste Awards for the 6th time this year and the third Golden Fork at the Guild of Fine Foods. The making of this 100% Iberico bellota ham is artisanal, with an average curing age of 42 months in drying cellars in the Sierra de Huelva area.
