Across the globe we celebrate the life and works of our famous Scottish Bard on the 25th January. Although we can't gather in our usual way this year, there's nothing stopping us raising a dram to our famous bard and enjoying some Scottish treats at home or even over Zoom with some friends.
Whether you are a whisky connoisseur or new to the 'water of life', we have a lovely selection of whiskies to toast Robert Burns. We also stock mouthwatering homemade tablet, delicious Scottish shortbread, award-winning cheese sablés and whisky cakes to nibble on during the Burns recitals. Why not treat yourself to a Burns Night Gift Hamper, or Luxury Burns Night Wine & Whisky Hamper or maybe send someone a Burns Night Gift Box to cheer them up?
Here are some recommendations to celebrate Burns…..
BURNS NIGHT GIFT HAMPER
This Burns Night Gift Hamper is full of traditional Scottish treats and the official Robert Burns Single Malt Arran Whisky (70cl) which comes with an engraved whisky glass. Everything you need to toast our famous bard. All that's missing is some Haggis, neaps and tatties, then you're good to go!
GERALDO'S PRIVATE CASK ARRAN WHISKY
Described as a "Wee Cracker" by one of our whisky customers (you can read his review here), our 20th Anniversary Private Cask release in collaboration with Arran Whisky has been matured for 10 years in a Sherry Hogshead Cask and bottled at 58.2% ABV. It certainly is a special whisky to be sipped and enjoyed during your Burns recitals.
ROBERT BURNS SINGLE MALT
This is the official Isle of Arran Distillery Single Malt endorsed by The Robert Burns World Federation. Made from 70% Bourbon Casks and 30% Sherry Casks, this light aromatic Robert Burns Single Malt is ideal for drinking with your haggis.
If this whisky isn't for you, why not take a look at our range of whiskies and toast Burns with something new this year.

SCOTTISH HOMEMADE TABLET
This Gold star award winning Scottish tablet simply melts in your mouth. Homemade in Ayrshire and available in gift bags or our traditional ballotin boxes, this tablet makes the perfect Burns supper after-dinner treat.
ASHER'S WHISKY CAKES
If tablet is not your thing, we're sure you'll love these moist, aromatic fruit cakes laced with single malt whisky. Choose a cake from the Highlands, Islands or Speyside. Asher's Whisky Cakes make the perfect accompaniment to your favourite dram.
We believe there is no rival to these delicious and exceptionally cheesy morsels. All three flavours (Original, Cumin, Fennel & Chilli) have been winners of the coveted Great Taste Awards year on year and are deliciously more-ish little biscuits made with lots of Scottish cheddar and Italian Parmesan, butter and organic flour.
How about getting creative with some of these fabulous whisky sauces made by The Whisky Sauce Company? Try serving the Scotch Whisky Sauce along with your Haggis. Simply delicious!
No matter how you celebrate our great Bard, the main thing is to have fun, even if it's lockdown!
