6 Gifts to Support Black-Owned Businesses This Father's Day

We have curated a list of 6 of our favorite gifts, all from Black-owned busineses, for the father in your life. 

 

1. Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey

Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey is inspired by the first known Black master distiller, Nathan “Nearest” Green. Uncle Nearest's premium aged whiskey is mellowed using the Lincoln County Process, a unique filtering of bourbon through sugar maple charcoal. This process has been confirmed to have been brought to Tennessee by enslaved people and taught by Nearest Green to the most famous Tennessee Whiskey maker of all time. Uncle Nearest is owned by Fawn Weaver, and is distilled, aged, bottled and hand-labeled in Tennessee. 

 

 

2. Basquiat from Semicolon Bookstore 

This Father’s Day, gift your dad or the father in your life a new eye-catching coffee table book. We love Basquiat, which presents Jean-Michel Basquiat’s career with vivid, visceral imagery. Semicolon Bookstore and Gallery is Chicago's only Black woman-owned bookstore and gallery space, committed to nurturing the connection between literature, art, and the pursuit of knowledge. 

 

 

3. Bolé Road Textiles Leather Coasters

Add a punch of color to your dad, uncle, or grandfather’s bar top or coffee table. We cannot get enough of Bolé Road Textile's bright, handcrafted leather coasters made in Ethiopia.
