The recent cold weather calls for something warming and there is no better excuse to do that than Burns Night, which is just around the corner and we of course have amazing Haggis to help you enjoy the day.
Burns Night is Scotland’s unofficial national day and takes place on January 25 each year. Across the world an estimated 15 million people will celebrate the life and works of the legendary Scottish poet Robert Burns.
70% of all haggis is eaten this week – which is a shame as it is a great dish all year round. We have a wonderful haggis for you. And this weekend – is a great time to celebrate with a haggis – if you haven’t had time to get one during the week.
As well as haggis – or for some perhaps, even instead of – you might want to celebrate the poet with that other Scottish favourite – scotch. If you are looking for something special and smooth – here is an excerpt of a guide to the best whiskies of the season such as this for a special occasion;
Glenfarclas 15-Year-Old - A rich, warm sherried Christmas cake of a whisky.
If you’d rather get out of the house to celebrate, the London Ceildh Club have some great Burns Night Dancing in London
Alternatively, you can pop over to newly fashionable King’s Cross where they have The Scotland Unwrapped Season at King’s Place where they are having a traditional Burn’s Night dinner and dance.
