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 range of malt 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. Or if you are heading to a Burns Supper, why not give a Whisky Tasting Hamper as a gift to your host.
Here are some recommendations to celebrate Burns…..
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.
We have a range of whiskies so why not 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 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.
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. These would be a very popular addition to your Burns Supper.
How about getting creative with some of these fabulous whisky sauces made by The Whisky Sauce Company? Try serving the Scotch Whisky Bonnet Sauce along with your Haggis. Simply delicious!
SCOTTISH GIFT HAMPERS
No matter how you celebrate our great Bard, the main thing is to have fun. We’ll raise a glass to that!
