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 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.
