Burns Night Celebrations

For those seek­ing a tra­di­tion­al Burns Sup­per, look no fur­ther than Bois­dale restau­rants with a selec­tion of menus fea­tur­ing impres­sive Cale­don­ian fare in hon­our of Robert Burns, includ­ing Dunkeld clas­sic oak smoked salmon, Scot­tish wild veni­son and Buc­cleuch dry aged beef, and of course the star attrac­tion, Dum­friesshire Black­face haggis.

There will be a lot of pip­ing and stab­bing of the hag­gis, all accom­pa­nied by copi­ous amounts of exquis­ite whisky from Annan­dale Dis­tillery, estab­lished in 1836 and reborn in 2014.

In addi­tion to the pipers galore both venues will be pre­sent­ing live music which can be viewed by click­ing here.

Annan­dale Distillery

Annan­dale Dis­tillery sits in the mid­dle of the south­ern Low­lands and was found­ed by George Don­ald in 1830 for the pro­duc­tion of sin­gle malt whisky. John­nie Walk­er bought it in 1893, and con­tin­ued sin­gle malt pro­duc­tion, until their famous blend­ed Scotch became the house­hold name. The Annan­dale Dis­tillery shut in 1919 but a restora­tion project start­ed about 9 years ago and whisky of the finest qual­i­ty and char­ac­ter is being pro­duced once more.

The ren­o­va­tion was the cul­mi­na­tion of sev­er­al years’ work and sig­nif­i­cant invest­ment at the facility. 

A peat­ed whisky — called Man o’ Sword in hon­our of Robert the Bruce – is pro­duced along with the unpeat­ed Man o’ Words in trib­ute to Robert Burns.
