These are the most thoughtful gifts for whiskey lovers—besides just getting them their favorite bottle.

There are a plethora of gifts for whiskey lovers that are available on the internet. We did the digging for the best of the best. Choose one, or multiple, of the best gifts for your favorite whiskey lover in your life and become the best gift giver ever!

If you have someone in your life that loves a nice glass of whiskey, they are sure to love any of these products. Plus, avoid taking the easy way out by just buying them a bottle, instead, show the amount of time and effort you put into the occasion.

A whiskey wedge is definitely one of the best gifts for whiskey lovers who wouldn't think to buy this themselves. A whiskey wedge takes the simplicity of an ice cube and diminishes the watered-down taste and clunky appearance. Simply grab your favorite whiskey glass and place the silicone form over it to fill with water. Leave the freezer to do the work for at least four hours, and you'll have a perfectly fitted ice triangle across the half of your glass; and it looks cool, too. Now all that's left is to add your favorite whiskey and enjoy.

An aging barrel for whiskey is, of course, one of the top gifts for whiskey lovers, but this one is special. With a very personalized touch, this barrel gives you access to change the details of the name, the distillery name, the year, and the city and state.
