Burns Night

It doesn't just have to come once a year

Written by . Published on January 26th 2012.

Burns Night

THE appreciation of the poetry of Robbie Burns is best achieved with a glass of malt whisky in hand or you may find some of the language too obscure or, as some have suggested, not unlike the BBC’s portrayal of Moriarty as a figment of the great Sherlock Holme’s imagination. Current enthusiasms are for Monkey Shoulder and the incomparable Ardberg. Also we like the Welsh Penderyn.

Last minute shopping for rare malts can be done at Milroy’s (3 Greek Street, London W1S 4NX, 0207 437 2385), Vintage House (42 Old Compton Street, London W1D 4LR, 0207 437 2592), Royal Mile Whiskies (3 Bloomsbury Street, London WC1B 3QE, 0207 436 4763) and Vinopolis (1 Bank End, London SE1 9BU, 0207 403 8688)

Or online at Whisky Shop and Soho Whiskey.     

There are no tales of tartan tartines because there are no Scottish restaurants of note in London but supporters of the old alliance may like to present themselves at the premises of one Mr. G. Ramsay, proprietor of numerous up market establishments in the capital.
