Across the globe we celebrate the life and works of our famous Scottish Bard on the 25th January with Burns suppers, ceilidhs and recitals. Whether you're attending a Burns event or simply having Burns Night at home, we hope you raise a wee dram to our famous bard and enjoy some Scottish treats with family and friends.
Traditionally we enjoy some haggis, neaps and tatties on Burns Night, but it's the additional Scottish goodies which will make your supper even more special including mouthwatering homemade tablet, delicious Scottish shortbread, award-winning cheese sablés and whisky cakes. All washed down with your favourite wee dram of whisky or Scottish gin of course.
Here are our recommendations to celebrate Burns…..

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.
