Open the Red Door to…
Did you know that Father’s Day is always celebrated on the third Sunday in June? This year, it falls on Sunday 19th, so show your appreciation for your Dad, Grandad or the father figure in your life and get ready to make this one extra special with Red Door Gin.
If you’re looking for the perfect way to help celebrate your Father’s Day, the Red Door team have put together some fun, thoughtful and creative ideas to get you started.
This Father’s Day why not spend some time in the great outdoors, taking in the fresh air and enjoying some quality time together. And if you’re waiting until after your outing to share your gifts, he’ll be extra appreciative of a well-timed and well-earned Red Door Gin cocktail (see below).
If your Dad loves spending the day in the great outdoors, get the whole family out there enjoying it with him! Go for a hike, get on your bikes, find a great campsite, enjoy a BBQ in the garden or a picnic in the park, planning some fun activities in the fresh air is a great way to celebrate Father’s Day.
From rock to jazz or classical, for music loving dads, nothing beats a live event that you can all enjoy this Father’s Day. Looking for the perfect Red Door cocktail to pair with your dad’s musical taste? We have plenty to choose from in our Signature Serves!
Pack the snacks, pile in the car, turn Dad’s driving playlist up… and spend a great day at his favourite beach, park or city. Just go for a discovery drive and see where the road takes you. Or, better still, how about calling in to see us and enjoying a Red Door Gin distillery tour?
There’s no better way to show your dad how much you care than taking the time to make him something homemade. Here are a few ideas to get you started…
Cook up a storm
Father’s Day is best spent with family, so if your dad would rather stay at home, plan his perfect menu with all his favourite dishes and set the table for a celebration. And if he loves to BBQ, now’s your chance to learn and thing or two from him at the grill, so get the ingredients prepped and barbie ready to go. Why not mix up a classic Red Door Gin and tonic or Martini as the perfect aperitif for him to enjoy while you’re cooking?
You’ve presented your gift and he’s looking for an excuse to open it. It’s time to wind down and pick the family’s favourite films! A movie night can be a great way to round up Father’s Day, choose a film the whole family can enjoy. And if it’s typical British weather, you can always put the movie on early! Just be sure to keep a watchful eye on his glass – today’s the day to be extra attentive to any indications that he might want a top-up!
Shake it up!
For the ultimate treat on Father’s Day, create your own at-home mixology event to create your Dad’s favourite cocktails. Take a look at our Red Door Gin signature serves for inspiration. Prep all the ingredients in advance – you could even try making your own orange bitters or flavoured syrups – and bring all the mixers and garnishes, along with your Dad’s favourite bottle of Red Door Gin.

Red Door Gin Classic Negroni
We can’t think of a better occasion than Father’s Day to master the classic, three-ingredient 1:1:1 cocktail, the Negroni. It’s all in the perfect balance of Red Door Gin, sweet vermouth and Campari, with a twist of orange.
Red Door Gin & Tonic
A classic gin and tonic is fresh, fragrant and the perfect cocktail to enhance a gin’s delicate flavour. It’s also a great choice of cocktail to share with dad after spending the day in the great outdoors!
Red Door Martini
With only three ingredients a martini is silky-smooth, sophisticated, and deceptively simple to make, a perfect tipple to treat dad.
