FAIR Rum
The world’s first fair-trade rum is a corker. Sweetened with molasses from 100 per cent organic sugar cane from Belize, this original, aromatic rum won a Silver medal at the European Rum Fest earlier this year. Better yet, distributor Noble Spirits also donate 2.5 per cent of profits to finance local development programs.

The Casual Cyclist's Guide to Melbourne, by Matthew Hurst
Bringing a fresh and entertaining perspective to this increasingly popular mode of transport, this book offers insider tips on the places to be seen in Melbourne and how you can get there on your bike. While the guide will open a new side of the city to seasoned cyclists, it’s also a great armchair read, so it may even inspire your dad to hop on two wheels if he hasn't tried it before. An updated version will be released this September.
