Burn's Night Whisky Tasting
“Oh thou, my muse! guid auld Scotch drink!”
Join us for a colourful hour of scotch drink this Burns Night. The evening commences with an original whisky cocktail, Mountain Daisy, in the stunning cocktail bar. Proceed down to the subterranean surrounds of Below & Hidden where we’ll celebrate the genius of Robert Burns with a colourful rendition of Burns’ “Scotch Drink” accompanied by a tasting of four fine whiskies.
Taking place in the beautiful restaurant, guests are welcomed in by the B&H Master of Ceremonies.
A five course supper will be served, with each course paired with a delicious dram or delectable cocktail including Cullen Skink served alongside Mountain Daisy, a refreshing fizz and whisky cocktail, whisky marinated salmon, cucumber, radish & lovage paired with Copper Dog Whisky, the classic haggis, neeps and tatties with a tumbler of Lagavulin 12yo Special Release, The Bourne & Hollingsworth Cranachan with Caol Ila 18yo, all finished off with deep fried mars bars and a special Johnnie Walker Espresso Roast cocktail.
The Selkirk Grace will be recited, the haggis piped in, addressed and toasted, the immortal memory enacted, live music played, toasts to the lassies and a vote of thanks as the dinner draws to a close with everyone joining hands for a rendition of Auld Lang Syne.
Those of a more extrovert disposition can participate in The Burns Factor and try their hand at reciting some of the poet’s trickier verses.
The festivities then continue as guests have an opportunity to get fair puckled dancing the Eightsome Reel, Strip the Willow and other traditional ceilidh favourites.
