Thirsty Thursday: The Burns Night Edition

Burns Night Edition

Burns Night

Rabbie Burns penned more than 550 poems and songs before his death in 1796. Known for his astute social commentary and focus on all things political. Scotland’s national poet is considered a revolutionary figure, both in his homeland and beyond. It’s no wonder so many wish to celebrate his life and work with such cheer on his birthday every year.

THE PEATY PERA – A SCOTCH WHISKY COCKTAILWith the Burns supper celebrations in full swing on the 25th of January, you’ll be needing a feast of haggis, neeps and tatties with some tasty Scotch Whisky to wash it all down.
