The Bourbon Zeppelin Black Friday Edition

Special Bourbon Fan Holiday Buying Guide

With the way Black Friday has evolved, many Americans have an early dinner on Thanksgiving, watch some football and then head out to fight the crowds at the mall to kickoff the holiday shopping season.

Hey, the Bourbon Zeppelin team is probably not going to convince you to stay away from lining up outside of your favorite stores this season as you seek  those incredible "doorbuster" deals, but we can save you some time wandering down the aisles searching for the perfect gift for the bourbon fans on your list. We get a lot of bourbon and bourbon-related items at BZ Headquarters during the course of the year. We're presenting here our 12 favorite from 2016. These are all tried, tested and endorsed as "perfect gifts for bourbon fans" by the Bourbon Zeppelin team. In addition to the 12 Days of Bourbon Zeppelin Christmas, I have included information on four of the bourbon-themed books from my catalog. With everything we hae here it will be easy to find the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday shopping list who loves America's distilled spirit as much as we do.

Let's not forget, if we can streamline your in-store experience by checking he bourbon fans off your list before you even head out the door, you've got more time to seek out flat screen TV and toaster deals.

After all, even if you don't need it, who can pass up a $4 toaster?

Zoku Ice Ball Molds
There is nothing worse than a glass full of melting ice watering down your bourbon. Sometimes you do need to cool off a cocktail, or you do want your bourbon chilled, though. The Zoku Ice Ball Mold creates the perfect sphere which increases surface area but significantly slows the melt. It looks cool too! You get a pack of two with this purchase.

Wyoming Whiskey Trucker Hat
Mesh in the back makes for a much cooler summer hat, but most trucker hats have the cheap foam fronts. This one has a canvas front with an embroidered logo. This one looks so good it has become an "everyday wearer" for our own Steve Akley.
