Burns Night falls on 25th January every year, marking the famous Scottish poet Robert Burns’ date of birth, with this year marking the poet’s 263rd birthday. The main attraction of Burns Night is the Burns supper, which generally involves three crucial elements: haggis, Scotch whisky, and the poetry about the man himself.
The evening then traditionally continues with more whisky and a recital of another Burns favourite – Auld Lang Syne – before dancing and general merriment ensues.
So, however you’re celebrating Burns Night this year, we’re here to help and have put together a few Scotch whiskys we feel will be the perfect choice for your evening’s merriment. Enjoy!

The Glenfiddich 15 Year Old is a uniquely aged single malt that has been aged in European, American, and fresh American oak before going into a 'Solera System' similar to those used for the ageing of quality Sherry.

ABV: 40% | €67.00
The 15 Year Old is Bowmore's heavily sherried whisky and has seen a period of finishing in Oloroso Sherry casks.

This goes really well with a few squares of good quality dark chocolate.
