If you really, really love your dad, he really, really loves his scotch, and you roll like Trump, Chivas Regal has a once in a lifetime trip for you.
After jetting first class to Scotland, you and the man who gave you life will stay at an invitation-only, private mansion with a full-service staff and world-class hospitality. You’ll eat privately prepared meals from one of Scotland’s most acclaimed chefs. (Tip: skip the haggis.) And you’ll play a round of golf at the world-famous St. Andrew’s Links. A limo and helicopter will take you wherever you need to go. And a private butler will make sure you have everything you need.
You’ll also be treated to a dinner with The Duke of Argyll (is he the guy who invented the socks?), at his home, Inveraray Castle. After dining in the State Dining Room, you and dad will get a VIP tour of the castle and its historical relics – not the dungeon – and access to the formal gardens and tea with the Duke in the castle tearoom. (I wouldn’t tell dad about the tea until right before.)
Then it’s onto the good stuff: learning to create a customized blended Scotch whisky with guidance from Chivas Regal’s Master Blender, Colin Scott, including five days of specialized whisky tastings where you’ll have the opportunity to sample never-before tasted whiskies.
After you get home you’ll receive a pair of custom-made kilts, a specially designed family crest, and two bottles of Chivas Regal 25-Year-Old Scotch Whisky, one of which will be presented in a special case designed by Viscount David Linley, son of Princess Margaret. Which, of course, dad will want.
You have until June 16 to book the trip, so start cashing in those savings bonds. And because of limited availability, you and dad can only travel August 3rd–8th or August 31st–September 5th. The cost is $117,650 and you can make reservations by calling Travelcorp International at 225-231-4735. Or you can just get him a tie like last year. And save $117,601.
