You Don’t Know My Life Game | Brenne French Single Malt Whisky | Barsys 2.0 | Yeti Rambler Colster Beer Insulator

If the dad in your life enjoys hosting and entertaining, we have a list of items that will win him over!

You Don’t Know My Life Game – $31.99

Put down the phones and turn off the TV the next time you’re all together to hear the hysterical stories you don’t know about each other. The game sprung from the list of the offbeat interview questions of an entertainment journalist who would pepper in questions like “What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done in pursuit of a crush,” and “What movie did you see when you were way too young to see it,” to celebs like Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Lopez, and Taylor Swift. Each round of the game, everyone writes an answer to the same question. The answers are shuffled and read aloud, then players score points by guessing who wrote each answer. There’s also a hysterical ‘sum it up with a hashtag’ element to the game as well. And hearing the story behind the story (because there’s always more!) leads to laughter, conversation, and authentic connections. The result is a fun night getting to know family and friends just a little bit better than before in an entertaining game that actually has people *gasp* putting down their phones for hours at a time and just talking face to face.

Brenne French Single Malt Whisky – $59.99

Founded by former professional ballerina-turned-whiskey entrepreneur Allison Parc, Brenne Estate Cask is the first single malt in the world to be aged exclusively in both new French Limousin Oak barrels and cognac casks. Brenne is crafted using 100% organic, locally sourced, and non-GMO ingredients. Tasting notes are below:Brenne Estate Cask is the first single malt in the world aged exclusively in French Limousin Oak and Cognac casks. The whiskey has perfumed fruit aromas and notes of a French patisserie with creamy and complex sugar notes of rich creme brûlée and burnt caramel. On the palate: notes of banana, tropical fruits, and warm spices like cinnamon and clove.

Barsys 2.0 – $979

Barsys 2.0 is the app-controlled robotic cocktail maker that sits on your countertop. No more being the bartender at your own party or worrying about over (or under) serving your guests.  Simply load the machine with five spirits and three mixers, let the app know what you put in it, and it pulls from a list of cocktails it already knows how to make, or you can customize and save your own. Barsys offers people a full menu of cocktails and offers the perfect pour every time, right from your home.
