Celebrate Burns Night With A Wee Dram

“Dear Sir, I'll gie ye some advice ...”


And that advice would be to celebrate Burns Night like the Scots themselves...with a wee dram. (And haggis and all the trimmings, if you so wish). But, for now let’s focus on the drams, ‘cos that’s what we know.

Burns Night comes but once a year and is a celebration of Robert Burns’ life. He was a poet - don’t you know it - who died in 1796 and the people of Scotland come together on January 25th to enjoy food, drink and his works.

In honour of the occasion, and our love of whisky, we’ve written a little poem for all you dram fans. It’s best enjoyed while sipping your tipple of choice (and hopefully the warmth of the whisky will make up for how truly terrible what you’re about to read is…)

An ode to a dram

O’ little dram, how lovely thee

Filled with delicious whisky

You may be small, but you are mighty

Bringing joy from Scotland to Blighty

On this Burns Night, you shall be tasted

Drinkers’ lips will be graced

With malts and grains, from sherried to peat

To celebrate this poet we shall have a treat

O’ little dram, how lovely thee

Filled with delicious whisky

Still with us? Good. Now, if you’re wondering which drams to open to celebrate Burns Night, might we suggest one of our whisky tasting sets? In fact, we have one that covers all bases - our Regions of Scotland Tasting Set comprises five drams from, you guessed it, regions of Scotland.
Inside you’ll find:

Glenfarclas 15 Year Old
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Talisker 10 Year Old
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Glenkinchie 12 Year Old

This tasting set is a great way to experience a range of different styles of whisky from across The Land of the Brave. Or, if a particular distillery or area is more your thing, check out our full range of tasting sets here.

Whatever your choice - bring on the Burns Night drams!
