Celebrating Burns Night with 'A Taste of Scotland'


Whilst we’re all trying to cope with the wind, rain and snow and all they bring in this hardest of all the winter months, there is a flickering of warmth and light on the horizon as Burns Night approaches.  Celebrated by lovers of the Bard around the world with whisky, feasting and poetry readings, it is a lovely occasion to celebrate handcrafted Scottish food and drink.
This month we have some Burns Night Treats to make your Burns Supper special including melt-in-the-mouth Scottish shortbread, delicious homemade tablet, and award-winning whisky cakes.  All washed down with a wee dram of your favourite Scottish whisky of course. Here are some recommendations to celebrate Burns Night:


Lochlea 'Our Barley' 46% Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70cl

Using barley grown on the very fields in Ayrshire that Robert Burns worked on with his father, this is the first single malt core expression from the independent, family-owned Lochlea Distillery.   Matured in a combination of First-Fill Bourbon Barrels, Oloroso Sherry Butts and STR Barriques 'Our Barley' is non-chill filtered with no added colouring.

Nose: Pear syrup, fruit bon bons, warm cut grass & marmalade.

Palate: Golden syrup, pepper, rye bread, macadamia nuts & cream soda.

Finish: Long finish with a lasting orange beeswax note.

Fun fact: the pattern running across the Lochlea bottle actually represents tractor tyre tracks!
