My Tales of Whisky Content Series with Nick Offerman Releases New Videos to Toast to the Holidays.

THE OFFERMAN FAMILY HOME, Dec. 13, 2017 - The holidays are officially here, which means you're likely frantically scrambling to complete your holiday gift list. From party planning to gift giving, let's be honest the holidays can be incredibly stressful. Thinking of a clever yet thoughtful gift for everyone on your list, or perfecting your holiday roast is frankly just too much work. This year we encourage you to follow Nick Offerman's lead and give the gift that you actually want to enjoy yourself – Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

In two new videos from the My Tales of Whisky content series, Nick truly brings magic to the holiday season. In the 'Perfect Gift,' Nick learns that the best presents aren't found under the tree in this comedic take on a classic holiday commercial. In 'Yankee Swap,' even the most complicated games can have the simplest prize, and certainly one that all can enjoy.

Offerman himself commented, "Once a body has enjoyed the sublime experience that is to be found in a dram of Lagavulin, that person's gifting needs will be henceforth fully answered."

So, now that you have your Lagavulin this holiday season, cozy up and enjoy the My Tales of Whisky content series greatest hits: Yule Log and New Year's Eve. Trust us, there is nothing like spending the holidays blissfully alone, enjoying fine whisky responsibly.

From Nick Offerman and everyone at the Lagavulin Distillery, and beyond, we wish you a happy and healthy holiday season and hope that your whisky dreams come true!

About Lagavulin

Since 1816, Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been made in a picturesque huddle of buildings on Lagavulin Bay. Perhaps the most beautifully situated of distilleries, Lagavulin makes arguably the most intensely flavored, smoky and rich whisky of all. For many, this is the definitive Islay malt.
