It’s time to celebrate the life and work of the poet Robert Burns this January 25 with fine food and drink. If you’re planning on organizing your own Burns Night celebrations, then Fortnum & Mason have got you covered.
The traditional centerpiece of any successful Burns Night party is the haggis. As the haggis is piped in, and Address to a Haggis is read, you need to make sure it’s a showstopper. Fortnum & Mason offer an award winning haggis made by the family run MacSweens company in Edinburgh. The haggis is crafted from traditional ingredients, and cooked in its natural casing. It’s bound to be one to get your guests talking.
Chivas Regal 25 Years Old
A fundamental part of the annual celebrations is whiskey. The drinks menu is a key part of proceedings, and malt whiskey is served with the main meal and for numerous toasts throughout the evening. Rich gold in colour, with aromas of sweet orange and peach, Chivas Regal is a fine Scotch whiskey to celebrate the night in style.
British Isles Cheese Board
To finish off the meal a selection of cheeses is often served. Fortnum & Mason’s British Isles Cheese board has a tantalising selection of cheeses, including an organic stilton, a nutty camembert-style cheese, a soft goat’s cheese and a rich Welsh cheddar. Serve with oatcakes for an authentic Scottish cheese course.
