Burns Night at Milroy’s

Monday 25th January 2021, 6:30pm

Burns Night is usually one of the most raucous nights of the year at Milroy’s, but sadly this year, owing to unprecedented circumstances, will have to be a little different.

Burns Night is a celebration of the Scottish poet, with the first Burns supper being held in 1801. Traditionally the evening is a heady mix of bagpipes, haggis with neeps and tatties and of course whisky.

Unfortunately we will be unable to provide the full works (bagpipes don’t ship well), however if there is one thing we have mastered this year, it is getting good whisky into your homes.

Join us as we move our celebration of Robert Burns online with a virtual tasting, hosted by our very own Simo and the wonderful Andrea Montague from Bacardi. We will also joined by a real life Scotsman, our regular Haggis blesser and friend of Milroy’s – Charlie Graham.

Your Milroys Burns Night pack will include:

One Coast to Coast tasting pack:

1 x 30ml Kilkerran 12 Year Old, 46%

1 x 30ml Cu Bocan Signature 1 (Bourbon, Oloroso and North American Virgin Oak), 46%

1 x 30ml Tobermory 12 Year Old, 46.3%

1 x 30ml Bunnahabhain Toiteach A Dha, 46.3%

Kick off 2021 with an inventive Compass Box Burns Night – Scotch Whisky News

As 2021 stretches out in front of us, we’re determined to face whatever challenges this year brings with hope and optimism. To everyone who supported us in 2020, thank you. Together, let’s keep that spirit of community going for 2021!

GET FIRED UP FOR A JOYOUS CELEBRATION

It’s Burns Night on the 25th January – an unmissable date in the whisky calendar. And while it’s tempting to think of it as an antiquated affair, that’s not how we see it. In his day, Robert Burns was a radical poet, so we want to honour him by doing things differently.

We’ve teamed up with British chef, restaurateur and food writer Stevie Parle from JOY in London to inspire you to mark the event with something a little more experimental. He’s designed a special ‘Not a Burns Night Burns Night’ menu of langoustines, pot-roast venison and a whisky-infused walnut cake, all designed to pair wonderfully with Hedonism, The Story of the Spaniard and The Spice Tree.

If you’re London-based, you can order the meal to enjoy at home here. But if you’re further afield, why not take some inspiration from Stevie and get creative in your own kitchen to mark the celebrations on the 25th? And if you’re looking for a cocktail to kick off proceedings, we recommend The Unholy Alliance. Of course, wherever you are, you can always shop for our whiskies here.

Whatever you choose, let’s celebrate Burns Night the Compass Box way. And above all, share and enjoy!

PS: Tradition calls for a reading of poetry by Robert himself on the night. If that’s part of your plans, we’d also recommend adding something from Brian Bilston to your list as well. His words are a genuinely delightful reflection on life in the current times.
