Whiskey, unlike a silver nut dish, is something you know your soon-to-be-married friend will really use. And thanks to Thirsty Nest, a new site that allows people to put barware, spirits and wine on their wedding registries, you can give them that barrell-aged gift. 

Look, they’re going to need it. Whether it’s to celebrate their union or to survive it, booze really works. And this site makes it socially acceptable to ask for it.

It’s got some really good stuff, too. Like a 17-year-old Hibiki we wish we were drinking right now instead of writing this. And a Don Julio Real Extra Añejo that costs more than that stripper who collected money for UNICEF at the bachelor party.

And a Don Julio Real Extra Añejo that costs more than the wedding DJ who will play Get Lucky twice.

So you can go ahead and get those for your friend if that’s what they want for their wedding or pre-wedding events. Or you could get them a nice globe decanter with a glass ship built inside. Or a beautiful bar cart. Or a nice leather backpack that holds wine. Or actual wine. Basically, if it has to do with drinking, you should be able to find it here.

And like that, a whole new stratum of people just got interested in wedding planning.
