Pipe in the haggis and make Rabbie proud this January 25! We think Burn’s Night is the perfect antidote to the cold and dark nights of January. This annual celebration of Robert Burns began as a dinner held by his friends in 1801, five years after the poet’s death. Today it’s a feast of Scottish produce, music and traditions. Whether you’re planning a relaxed kitchen table dinner or a black-tie extravaganza – the central element of any Burns Night supper is great food and drink. Read on for our favourite tipples and eating out spots to toast the bard in style.
