To give you a taste, here are eleven reasons why giving good scotch is the perfect pairing with fine lingerie.

In Scotch Ingredients Matter. So Too, Materials Make The Lingerie
Simply put, quality matters. When it comes to a good bottle of scotch or a pair of delicate undies, designers and scotch distillers are determined to use the finest resources to ensure the scotch lover or lingerie wearer’s enjoyment. Men lose themselves in the rich flower notes of a Laphroaig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18yo just as women revel in the feeling of lustrous Calais lace against their tush. Just as men admire the integral role oak casks play in deterring a whisky’s internal flavor, women adore gossamer ruffles and intricate embroideries of a perfectly designed tanga.
Scotch Drinkers Have Specific Tastes. So Too, Not All Lingerie Is Alike.
While some men gravitate towards a richer, sweeter scotch like a bottle from Glenmorangie Signet, women’s tastes can range from leaving more to the imagination in a curve-skimming opaque piece or baring it all in sheer gossamer lingerie. Essentially everyone has a certain fit—whether it Glenmorangie Signet comes down to the type of a scotch they enjoy, or a certain style of lingerie they prefer.
Scotch Makes A Perfect Gift . . . Just As Lacy Lingerie
The gift of scotch and lingerie are both perfect for any occasion. From a thank-you to a Christmas gift, these selections offer distinctiveness and class. For the traditionalist, a bottle of Balblair 1990 Vintage. With regards to lingerie—from a birthday to an anniversary—you are able to offer the femininity, delicacy and beauty of flowers without the wilting.

Choosing the Gift Is Hard: The Gift Recipient Matters
Both a bottle of fine scotch or luxury lingerie is not just a distinctive and classy gift; it’s a statement of your admiration for the person who receives it. We know your favorite boss will appreciate a Dalmore King Alexander III single-malt Scotch whisky, as will the difficult-to-find-a-gift-for father-in-law. And whether you are a man who wants to show his wife of nine years that she is still the most beautiful woman in the world in high-end KissKill boy thong, or a lover looking for a sexy birthday present might choose a “Clandestine” ultra-sexy Maison Close piece, lingerie is simple way to absolutely delight the woman in your life. Tailor the gifts to represent the occasion and the gift-recipient.
A Great Scotch’s Flavor Is In The Details . . . Just Like A Fine Lace Thong
It’s always in the details. Because of the subdued flavor scotch possess, it takes patience to see the subtleties while enjoying a glass. With The Last Drop 1967 Single Malt, you need to pay attention to detail to taste a subtle salt that melt into clove, spice, and dried fruit. If scotch is a drink to be romanced, so too is intricate and indulgent lingerie. The Swarovski embellished detailing on a Sokoloff thong could make most women swoon at the knees and feel like the most confident woman in the room.
Craftsmanship Of Scotch Is Everything
There are no magical machines that take in a bolt of fabric and spit out an Only Hearts teddy. Each design has dozens of pattern pieces that must be sized properly, cut out of however many layers of fabric were used, sewn together, pressed neatly, and have edges finished and trimmings applied.
Country Of Origin Matters
Just as every Scotch has its own distinct flavor that is dependent on where it was produced, lingerie has its own distinct style that is dependent on where it was designed and manufactured. While most Islay whiskies are immediately recognizable for its trademark peaty character like a Ardbeg Dark Cove Limited Edition, UK-based lingerie brand, Mimi Holliday is immediately recognizable for its’ posh, fun-filled, distinctly British designs.
You Can Never Have Too Many Scotch Options
Variety matters. You can never have a too full stocked bar or a too full stocked drawer of knickers. True aficionados are constantly seeking to grow their collection. From a Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 YO to a Master of Malt 30 YO Speyside, there is quite a comprehensive list of brands, types, and sub-categories when it comes to scotch. Similarly, ladies can select from a range of different pieces from knickers to robes and teddies. And with regards to knickers; a woman wants them all; from racy g-strings to high waist, modest yet still alluring Boyshorts and demure Bikinis.
How You Pair Your Scotch (Or Lingerie) Is Critical
With the rising appreciation of single malt Scotch whisky, people are starting to enjoy it in more exciting and diverse ways. While you might pair a Glenfiddich Solera 15 YO with duck and seasonal vegetables in consommé, you would never pair it with anything spicy. So too with lingerie, it matters how you match it with other pieces in your closet. For instance, women rarely pair deep, rich colored lingerie under lighter colors as to attract unwanted attention (unless, of course, that is what they are going for).
Scotch & Lingerie Are Not For Everyone
And yes, we know scotch is not for everyone as is lingerie. Just as you don’t want to give your ten year-old nephew a glass of Kingdom 12 YO, you don’t want to give your mother a gold-flecked ouvert (crotchless!) black lace bikini. Both products are an acquired taste and might give the recipient the wrong idea.
An Elegant Presentation Matters
Presentation is the first thing you notice when looking at a bottle of scotch or some lingerie. Paying homage to a traditional, old-timey approach, Aberfeldy Single Malt Scotch Whisky’s gold lettering brings out the tempting amber hue of the whisky Illustrations of barrels, trains, and barns are incredibly detailed, with beautiful shading, giving it an atmosphere of utmost, premium quality. And for luxury lingerie, the gift should arrive in a presentable manner, such as a custom keepsake box, nestled in a bed of real freeze-dried flower petals to be considered tasteful and elegant.
Finishing Scotch Is Only Half The Fun, Just Like Lingerie
Just as finishing a drink is a wonderful feeling, so too is taking off your favorite lingerie. But, let’s still savor the process of doing so. To truly appreciate the good oak support and lingering smoke of a Jura Vintage 1977 Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, you must give it a long, full finish. When it comes to the undergarments, women take the time to truly savor the entire sensual process of foreplay, putting on, wearing and removing their lingerie.
