Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch has some advice from pitchman Nick Offerman for this Father’s Day … head to the woods with your pop and a bottle of whisky.
Offerman, his father Ric, and Lagavulin whisky have again assembled in the sixth Father’s Day installment of the long-running video series, “Lagavulin: My Tales of Whisky.”
A statement from the distiller notes that in this episode, “Nick Offerman & Lagavulin Present: Dad Does It Better,” the Offerman men go off the grid, braving the wilderness with just four hands, two drams and a yearning for old-fashioned father-son bonding over their favorite whisky.
The digital spot depicts Nick and Ric retreating to the great outdoors for a variety of campsite activities, which quickly reveal that in the Offerman clan, it is said older does in fact mean wiser.
From woodworking, to bird-calling, to steak-eating, dad does it better every time. While the younger Offerman is known for his nature skills and aptitude for craftsmanship, within his family, Ric is the supreme woodsman.
As their outdoor adventures come to an end over a nightcap while stargazing, Ric manifests what he feels is the constellation of a beloved trinity – a T-Bone steak, a baked potato and a bottle of Lagavulin 16 Year Old, which he says is proof that for father-son duos like these two, a love of well-crafted whisky is written in the stars.
“Does my Dad do everything better than me? Sure. But hang on, is that because of his superior life prowess, or am I maybe letting him win because I am a generous son?” Nick Offerman said. “If you answered with the superior prowess one, you’re right, dang it, but I hope you at least considered the second. The good news is, I only have to do ¾ as good as my dad to finish in front of most of my fellow mortals.”
In the spirit of conservation, Lagavulin is making a $50,000 contribution to the California Fire Foundation to benefit California firefighters, their families and the communities they protect.
And, the handcrafted wooden bear featured in the new video will be auctioned on Charity Buzz until June 22nd to further provide funds to the California Fire Foundation.
