Why Twin Liquors Celebrates Burns Day

Good food, good cheer with great poetry and whisky; there is no experience quite like a Burns Night celebration. Here at Twin Liquors, we have always enjoyed toasting on this special night with friends and a good dram. And, while this year, we will be toasting virtually, we will toast nonetheless!

Robert Burns

Scotland’s Greatest Poet

Robert Burns is Scotland’s most celebrated poet. Known for works like “Auld Lang Syne” and “Scotch Drink,” he is celebrated the world over and in the whisky world as well! The Burns night started in 1796 as a celebration of the poet’s life by his friends and patrons. Even centuries ago, the Burn’s Supper involved bag-piping in the haggis, a reading of the poem An Ode to Haggis, and much toasting. Today there are thousands of Burn’s Suppers all over the world, many continuing with these centuries old traditions. And, while today some have updated the fare, they all still celebrate Scotch Whisky!

Survey of Scotch

Scotland’s Five Whisky Regions

Each of the five Whisky regions offers a different perspective on Scotch Whisky.

Speyside whiskies are known for being frugal with peat and full of fruit.

The Highlands offer a Scotch for all palates, from lighter whiskies to salty coastal malts.

Islay is famous for fiery, heavily peated whiskies.

Campbeltown whiskies are varied and full of flavor.

Soft and smooth malts are characteristic of the Lowland region.

Whatever your palate preference, there is a Scotch to complement.
