Yes, somehow it’s almost Father’s Day! But don’t worry, you’ve still got plenty of time to find the perfect gift before June 20. To save you the trouble of looking for one, we’ll just get to the point: Brightland’s limited-run Summer Grilling Capsule is the ultimate gift for Dad, especially if the Dad in question happens to love to grill. It includes a bottle of Brightland’s delightfully zesty LUCID lemon-infused olive oil, two cedar grilling planks from family-owned Wildwood Grilling, hand-harvested salt from J.Q. Dickinson Saltworks, and to top it all off, The Spout, which is Brightland’s beautiful and practical bottle topper that pours out a perfect drizzle.
Hopefully, you’re already familiar with one of Kitchn’s absolute favorite olive oil brands, but if not, here’s the deal: Brightland is in the business of creating consciously crafted olive oils and vinegar, and we consider a bottle of their artisanal oil to be a Kitchn essential. LUCID is their lemon-infused oil made from heirloom Frantoio olives grown on a single California estate and milled within 90 minutes of being hand-picked. It’s a total game-changer, especially for summer. Its lemony, bright flavor makes it a great finishing oil for grilled salmon, zesty tzatziki, vinaigrettes, and pretty much everything else that screams SUMMER! Basically, it’s a little bottle full of sunshine.
Now, a bottle of LUCID would be a great Father’s Day gift on its own, but the other treats in Brightland’s Summer Grilling Capsule make it an exceptional gift for Dad. The two cedar grilling planks are from the grilling experts at Wildwood and are made from sustainably sourced cedar. They’ll add a fragrant wood-smoked flavor to salmon, veggies, and more, and also just look really handsome for serving. Brightland sourced the salt in this collection from J.Q. Dickinson Saltworks, a seventh-generation salt-making family business in West Virginia. The salt is harvested by hand from the Iapetus Ocean (if you’ve never heard of it, that’s only because it’s been trapped below the Appalachian Mountains for 400 million years) and processed using just the power of the sun and mountain breezes. Needless to say, it’s very special salt that would be a fancy finishing touch for anything that comes off the grill.
Brightland also thoughtfully included The Spout in their Summer Grilling Capsule, which really is essential when you’re using olive oil as good as LUCID. Its brushed gold finish looks beautiful atop LUCID’s artist-designed bottle, and it has a tiny hinged lid to protect the oil as well as an interior straw that helps you get a smooth, uninterrupted pour for the perfect drizzle. All in, Brightland’s Summer Grilling Capsule is one of our favorite Father’s Day gift ideas ever, but we won’t blame you one bit if you gift it to yourself, too.
