Hosting the perfect Burns Supper


Robert Burns

So how do you host the perfect Burns Supper? Across the globe we celebrate the life and works of our famous Scottish Bard on the 25th January. Haggis, neaps and tatties followed by clootie dumpling are standard, but it is the additional treats that will make a special night.

In Geraldo’s of Largs we have a wide range of malt whiskies to toast Robert Burns. We also stock mouthwatering homemade tablet, delicious Scottish shortbread and whisky cakes to nibble on during the Burns recitals.  

Here are some recommendations…..


Robert Burns Arran Malt Whisky

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. 

We have a wide range of whiskies so why not toast Burns with something new this year.


Shortbread House of Edinburgh
The perfect accompaniment to a wee dram has to be shortbread. Shortbread House of Edinburgh pride themselves on making everything by hand to ensure that the taste, texture and appearance is far superior to mass produced products. Anthony Laing and his wife Fiona acquired the business in 1989. Since then, it has grown from a small customer base in Scotland to having customers throughout the UK and abroad.  
We have a range of their gift tins to choose from. It's the best shortbread we have ever tasted!


Scottish homemade tablet

This Gold star award winning Scottish tablet simply melts in your mouth.  Homemade in Ayrshire and available in gift bags or foil-lined Ballotin boxes, this tablet makes the perfect Burns supper treat or a gift for your host.


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.


Whisky sauces

How about getting creative with some of these fabulous whisky sauces made by The Whisky Sauce Company?  These are hugely popular in our shop and very versatile too.  Try serving the Scotch Whisky Bonnet Sauce along with your Haggis.  Simply delicious!
