Fans of NBC’s sitcom Parks and Recreation understand and appreciate the fact that Nick Offerman has a lot in common with his character Ron Swanson.

The limited-edition Single Malt should retail for about $80. With Father’s Day right around the corner, I may have to accidentally email this link to my wife. Here’s the promotional video Nick filmed with his father:
