Rocco Forte Hotels

Creative gift ideas for that special father

From sipping on a Sixties’ inspired cocktail at Donovan Bar in Brown's Hotel to savouring a delectable 3-course lunch together at Hotel de Russie’s Stravinskij Bar, here is a handpicked selection of creative gift ideas for Fathers’ Day on Saturday 19th of June 2022.



Stylish cocktails

We all appreciate a masterfully shaken cocktail, and they don’t come more stylish than a Sixties’ inspired cocktail at the elegant Donovan Bar in Brown's Hotel. The bar’s new menu, created by maestro Salvatore Calabrese, celebrates the hotel's 185th anniversary and features delicious cocktails themed by personalities that have graced the hotel over the years from fashion, music and the silver screen, one highlight being Wilde Nights, laced with Irish whiskey and a spray of absinthe, served in an Art Deco glass.

A classic story of friendship

Our limited-edition reproduction of The Jungle Book makes for nostalgic reading and has been exclusively printed for Brown's Hotel to honour the literary classic. Set in a forest in India, the collection of stories were written by the English author Rudyard Kipling at Brown’s Hotel.


Scotch whisky tasting

Sharing a dram with your dad on Fathers’ Day is a time-honoured tradition in Scotland. Step inside The Balmoral, Edinburgh’s most majestic hotel, and let one of our knowledgeable whisky ambassadors at SCOTCH bar guide you and your father through four rare whiskies in our special whisky experience.


An Italian lunch in the heart of Rome

Enjoy a delectable three-course lunch at Hotel de Russie’s Stravinskij Bar to the sound of fountains amid pine and palm trees in the heart of Rome. The menu, created by our celebrity chef Fulvio Pierangelini, comprises fine Italian delicacies such as beef fillet with sautéed chard. 


Mixing & Matching

Get creative in a mixology class at Masseria Torre Maizza in Puglia in the heel of Italy at our serene Bougainvillea bar, with its whitewashed arches, stylish armchairs and a terrace bursting with its namesake. Under the expert eye of one of our mixologists, learn to craft an authentic Apulian Spritz among other classic cocktails, then sample your own creations.
