Hosting the perfect Burns Supper


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 and delicious Scottish shortbread to nibble on during the Burns recitals. Here are some recommendations…..


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 shortbread rounds and gift tins of shortbread fingers in a variety of flavours. It's the best shortbread we have ever tasted!


Scottish TabletThis 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.


Robert Burns 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 Single Malt is ideal for drinking with your haggis.  When purchased in our store, it also comes with a free branded tasting glass. 

We are not currently selling our premium spirits online, but please visit our shop in Largs to see our full range of malt whiskies.  You're bound to find the perfect one to toast Burns.
